Bimmerfest 4 Series Detroit Coverage: What do you want to know?

Hands on with the F32 4 series

Bimmerfest.com will be covering the Detroit Auto Show where, for the first time we will get our hands on the F32 4 Series Coupe Concept. If you've been asleep for the last few months the 4 series coupe is the spiritual successor to the 3 series coupe, that's right there will no longer be a 3 series coupe.

Read more about the 4 Series Coupe Concept

With the ability to see and touch the 4 series in person next week we want to hear from you. What do you want to hear about, what is the biggest question you have about the 4 series that we can answer for you? Post your questions and we'll do our best to get pictures or answers while at the North American International Auto Show.

Preview of BMW at the Detroit Auto Show

--Weight penalty, if any, relative to E90.
--Ability to order Msport version and the saddle interior (or any other color rather than just plain old black and gray).

Are non-M models coming with any sort of eLSD or, if we commoners are lucky, a real LSD?

1) Rear seat headroom will be less than sedan.
2) There will be 3 Series Gran Turismo version;
If a GC is conceived it will be a 3 Series, and not a "4" based on established nomenclature.
3) No appreciable driveline changes.
4) Price point will be positioned slightly higher than sedan.
5) No immediate plans for Individual at the 3 series level.

There will be special order paint colors available at some point on the new coupe as there have always been on all models.
This is not the same thing as "Individual", and usually special orders are not accepted right out of the production gate.
