New BMW For Those Who Think F10 Is Too Big?

How about this as a smaller alternative?

This concept looks awesome.

Does this mean the M3 is sedan only and M4 will take over for coupe?

This car will sell like crazy. Beautiful.
It makes the good looking 6-series seem bloated and clumsy.

Yes.

It's not really much of a concept though.

+1

That is as close to production ready as concept will ever be before it goes into production. I expect that the interior will be more BMW traditional.

What a beautiful car... I don't know about those cross stitch cup holders..

My sentiments exactly!

I would be trying to get something out of that..

I am also not crazy about leather dashes. I know its the new big thing but no for me... then again I drive a manual 5 series. Marketing is not aiming at me...

Oh my, that thing is beautiful! Only two things I don't like are the pop up Nav screen (cheeeesy!) and the cross stiched cup holders.

Finally, a possible alternative when my '08 E60 must be retired. No freaking way I'll replace it with an F10, and I'm not optimistic that the next 5er will undo the trend to bigger and heavier. The 4er might be the way to go!

Maybe the cupholders are an extra you only get if you pay for them, like in the good old days.

It's not a pop up Nav screen. It's fixed just like in the3er sedan. And to me, personally, it looks modern and works well.

I agree that looks good, works part remains to be seen - I have never driven it so wonder about glare etc.

One question - if its not out - how do you know its not popup? I am not disagreeing just wondering how you are sure?

This is magnificent. I can definitely see this as the replacement for my 5er now my wife has an X1. Cannot wait to see it in real life. Reading around they say that the uptick on price when compared to the F30 is around $4,500, which is considerably more than the current model coupes when compared to the saloons/sedans. It had better be good because is will cost the same as a 5er.

Because it's the same dash as the F30, more or less. You have the same design in the F30 as well as the 6 series, and it has been shown in many of the future concepts like the i3 and i8. There's no reason it would all of a sudden become a popup.

As far as glare goes, there isn't any. It's totally a non issue. I mean, the F10's monitor is essentially flush....there's no real overhang to speak of.

Most likely the 4 coupe will be the "NEW" 3 series coupe. The 3 will denote the sedan version of the F30 lineup. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not digging the pop up style iDrive screen. Reminds me of the old Lexus IS and the pre-face lift C Class screens.
