That's great news. It looks like the 4-Series have started to escape the ports.

4-Series at dealerships yet? Availability?

Just saw a beautiful 428 at BMW of Tenafly. While we were looking at it, someone else bought it. Now wife wants a 428 rather than a GT.

I received a call from a CA at a local dealership that their 435i is in. I'm going to see it in person tomorrow.

Don't wait too long. I got a call from my dealer that they had a 428 and that it would be in their showroom late this morning. I arrived at 1:30 and the car was beautiful. I had a feeling that I had to act right away and as I was discussing the price, another salesman put a sold sign in the car. The car was taken out of the showroom shortly thereafter. If only I arrived 30 minutes earlier....

I drove the 428i and was terribly dissapointed. God it was so soft in ride and the steering too light and brakes too spongy. Too much body roll too. The GS F-Sport that I have right now alongside my 2008 3 series is far superior in ride dynamics then the 428i.

Maybe because the 4 had standard suspension and 17 inch rims???

Sounds like it has the same road feel as the normal 3-Series, which is to say, disappointing.

I stopped by a local dealership yesterday. They have a 435i and a 428i. Both are MSports. I drove the 435i. I definitely like it and think that it looks better than the previous coupe. If I can work out a deal, I'll be ordering one.

These cars come standard with the xenons, right? What's the difference between what comes standard and the Full LEDs? Is it worth it? It's 1900 dollar option. Seems steep.

Your post is about your having just bought a GS, and not so much about the 4.

The Most sport version looks better than the E92 in person. I saw a mineral grey one with black interior yesterday.
