Well given that the F30 sedan is a 3 series and this is a new 4 series more geared towards performance/looks I would hope they wouldnt make people wait 1 whole year for the m-sport. Look at those rocker panels

Certainly someone with such extensive business experience knows how to use Google.

The story says the concept 4 is heading to the Detroit Auto Show in January. Dang it, I was hoping for a look at the LA Auto Show.

I could not find any information published where the sales figures for the 3 Series is broken down into sub categories of sedans, coupes and convertibles.

Maybe you would be so kind as to share the link to the information your read. The reason I'm interested, is that I actually see many more coupes and convertibles in FL and about an equal split where I live in PA versus all wheel drive sedans. I always thought this interesting as I would have thought they sold more sedans because they are cheaper and more comfortable for back seat passengers (plus the AWD feature).

I'm not seeing that around the Jupiter and Palm Beach area. I started noticing many more coupes and convertibles when the E90-E93 models came out. I think that's when the coupes became much more popular than they had been in the past.

I don't know why but the E92 never really interested me. What we've seen of the F32 looks really sharp, though I hope the headlights are tamed a bit from the F30.

Yea, for a coupe the E92 is a little to soft looking for my taste.

Looks like they fixed the one bad aspect of the E92's looks, the roofline which, IMHO, was just too high. The side vent is an interesting idea but the black trim on it doesn't work. Overall, it's well proportioned and "looks" longer and lower.

The C pillar is sexier but it looks like rear headroom may have been compromised.
One of the best things about the E92 is the usable back seat.

Usable for what? If anyone in front has even average length legs it's extremely cramped unless the backseat passenger is a kid in which case headroom is pretty much irrelevant.
