I really wish that the 435ix was going to be available with a manual transmission. After having AWD in my WRX for over five years, it's going to be hard to give up. But, I've just got to have a manual. This new 4-Series looks so good, I'm pretty much sold on it. Now to find a dealer who's willing to make a fair deal.

There we go... this is something I can sink my teeth into. Though the grille and nose still look a bit "odd" to me with the pregnant hood, it looks like they've tried to minimize that bulge a smidgen.

Great timing too... maybe next year I'll be ordering one of these for my next ED when the lease is up on my 135i

If you are talking about the E92 then the plunge already happened last year. If you are talking about the 4-Series then it will do fine, IMO. If not then the 2-Series will make it up.

IMO, this new 4 is nice looking but no where near as sexy as the current 6. I was really hoping the 4 would be a smaller 6 with regards to its looks.

me too i was expecting more of a 6 like rear as opposed to just another 5 rear like the f30, since those are sedans and 4, 6 are coupes. also, current gen the rears are completely different between the e90 and e92, so i was hoping for the same. its disappointing to see it just look like yet the 4th or 5th model that has that same rear now. maybe these pictures just dont do it justice, i guess the nighttime lights could kind of blur the picture, defintiely cant see the headlights thats for sure. would have been nice just to see the DRLs.

Stunning. No one in the right mind is going to buy an F30 now unless they really, really have to.

Well, not really. I sort of need a sedan right now. But 3 years out, both my kids will be in college. Actually, by then I might even be looking at 2 seaters...

Maybe people want to have 5 doors and be more passenger friendly, as well as not paying a premium for aesthetics.

It's kind of like saying the A4 is obsolete.

No, they won't. Not everyone, I mean. 'Cuz, see, I know at least ONE person who doesn't care for it.

Thumbs up on the design. Love the side profile and rear-end. Still not loving the F30 fascia up-front, but I think that it will look better with the M-Sport package. Will wait to see what the M4 version will be and may just make my way back to BMW if that thing is a beast.

Wait wait wait... two pages and no one has completely trashed the look of the car!? Amazing!

PS if I didn't have a child this would be replacing my wife's current car. Beautiful.

No 4 Series at NY Auto Show

Spoke with BMW NA in NJ asking if the 4 series coupe would be shown at the NY show (like in Detroit). She did not have the answer and called me back 2 hours later to say NO!
Oh well. I was going to see the show to see that car ( I want tthe convertible next year) but now I don't have to.

Wow, you are going to be behind the times for a long time. Thankfully Joe Camry won't have a clue. My dealer tells me I get the first in their pipeline other than the 2 showroom cars they get. I can finally change that Godawful sig pic. Seems like everyone has the same pic these days...

As soon as I see one in person I may be jumping out of my current car and back into a coupe. I really like the idea of a 435i in Estoril blue with all the options.

Did your dealer give you an idea of when the showroom cars would arrive?

I too, am excited for the 4 but I really need to sit in one before I can safely order one.
