Can't wait to see the Vert. I'm encouraged by these pics... we all know BMWs always look better in person than a 2D pic. Added some aggressiveness to the e92 w/o going over the top or wiping away a good design.

I wish the vent scoops were body color (since BMW insisted on keeping them) but at least they didn't chrome them Wanna bet body colored vent scoops becomes part of a ///M Sport Pkg option in 2015. BMW knows what it's doing here: $$.

I too, am excited for the 4 but I really need to sit in one before I can safely order one.
I am very surprised that they did not show the 4 series at the NYIAS.

Good god, it's huge. :-(
New 4 series totally look bland from all angles when next to other competitors.
Side vents for this type of car is ridiculous and looks like an add on thought.

Come on 2 series, don't let us down

Very disappointed in the last 2-3 years with BMW design-less

I don't think he did exactly, but I thought I heard July somewhere. Could be wrong on that. I think I read September on f30post.

I'd like to sit in one as well, but I can't see me getting anything else, so its not like its going to entirely matter. Its not like a pair of jeans where I have to see how the cut is if it fits me before ordering. I'm not going to leave BMW, not going to get a sedan, can't really afford or need a 6, want larger than a 1/2er, so the 435 is what I am happily left with.

The only problem with the new 4 series design is that there doesn't appear to be anything distinctive. And the the side vents doesn't help one bit.
For example, the current gen Audi A5/S5 design, which came out in 2008, is still very modern and beautiful. Stand the A5 next to the new 4 Series and the A5 can still hold its own after all these years.

Production on the 2014 4 series starts in July. They won't be in US dealerships until September.

I talked to my CA on Saturday afternoon and he showed me all the paperwork the dealership has received so far on the F32. He said they will not even be receiving the pricing on the car and all the options until late June and that they would be taking orders in early July for Sept. delivery. We have already begun talking numbers for my car as a trade in so I think I will be one of the first in my area to put in an order. I told him that I would like to wait and see one in person and drive it before I ordered but he said I could get more for my convertible in the spring than I could later in the year so I think I am going to give up the car early and just drive my second car until my ordered one comes in.

It kinda does.
I wish BMW bucked the trend of making every new generation bigger and bigger.
Would love to see the new 4 series the same size as the previous gen E90's

My wife owned both generations of the Probe. I don't see it.

We have the dealer order sheets and planning documents if anyone hasn't seen them yet -

I wouldn't expect full pricing details until July. We should see base pricing and more pictures and specs any day however.

Re: BMW 4 Series F32 EXPOSED in Production Sheet Metal

Concept was nicer. But this still is much nicer than a 3 Coupe.
Well done BMW!

Gimme in Mineral White w/ Mocha interior and a nice set of staggered 20s for the win.

Here are some pictures of my 1989 Ford Probe which I was driving until the tranny in it burned up in 2007... So while it is a marvelously awesome car (check out that amazing cockpit!), I'm afraid I'm not seeing the resemblance to the F32.

Perhaps the resemblance (exterior-wise) is that the probe and the new 4 series appears to be very long, low and heavy the new 4 series.

Lately, BMW has been building some heavy weight cars compared to their competitors: 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, and 7 series
