The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe marks the beginning of a new era for coupes at BMW. Launched as the latest generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment. The “4” in its title headlines this new product line for the Coupe and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but that any way you look at it, the new 4 … CONTINUED
The 4 Series M Sport drops some camouflage and we get our most revealing peek yet, on a F33 4 Series Convertible prototype.
Parts diagrams and drawings of various parts of the BMW 4 Series Coupe (F32), including the front bumper, front fender, headlights and tail lights.
These can be seen in our spy photos revealing the 4 Series Coupe.
A few more spy photos of the soon-to-be revealed F32 4 Series Coupe.
We noticed an interesting phenomenon with the latest set of 4 Series spy photos – how negative the reaction was compared to the very positive reaction to an earlier set of spy photos featuring the same model (a 435i Sport Line). The only difference between these cars? The camouflage, the color, and the setting/lighting.
Goes to show that camouflage really can have a profound effect in how a car looks and is perceived by a viewer. As you can see in the comparison photos below, the … CONTINUED
We previously spotted the production 4 Series Coupe (F32) bare it all during a commercial shoot, but this newest sighting gives us the best and closest look yet at the prototype F32 still in testing.
Previously reveal 4 Series Lines, Options and Packages [see dealer's demo order guide] show that the F32 will come in Luxury Line, Sport Line, and M Sport Lines.
The Glacier Silver 435i prototype is a Sport Line model with a sportier front bumper, black high-gloss elements (bumper accents, air intakes, kidney … CONTINUED
Another F30POST member shares his impressions of the production F32 4 Series Coupe from a media preview event held in London, England. Per MEGA:
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a What? Car “Special BMW Event” yesterday (28th May 2013) in Teddington, West London at the Haymarket media group HQ.
I’d had several email exchanges with a lovely girl there named Emma about the nature of the event, and I guessed long before getting the “unofficial” nod (as Emma was sworn to secrecy) that … CONTINUED
The F32 BMW 4 Series Coupe (435i) is currently making its rounds in Denmark at BMW dealers. A BIMMERPOST member recently had some up close and personal time with the 435i coupe and shares his impressions with us:
First of all, the car was shown in Denmark at the presentation of the 3GT and only the two 3GTs was in the showroom. Everybody were asked to either give the dealer their cell phones (which I don’t think anybody did) or get a sticker on the … CONTINUED
Yes, a comparison of the M235i against a 435i M Sport or potential M435i would be a more appropriate comparison, but there are no revealed photos of the 435i M Sport (and no photos of a potential M435i). This is just to provide our members with a comparison of the 2 Series vs 4 Series’ general shapes and looks.
The angles on the spy photos also don’t match up exactly, but we will post another visual comparison once we have official photos for both models.
If you couldn’t already tell from the torrent of spy photos featured on the BIMMERPOST homepage, manufacturer testing season has opened on the Nurburgring.
On the track today was this F32 4 Series (435i) with M Sport package revealing for the first time the aggressive shape of the M Sport front bumper. Compared to the F30 3 Series M Sport front fascia, the 4 Series M Sport bumper is more angular, with air vents that angle upwards and expands as it gets closer to the … CONTINUED
Have a look at the latest F33 4 Series convertible prototype, revealing more of its defining characteristic – its metal folding roof. Earlier spyshots (reposted below) show the hard top operation and the design is largely similar to the current E93 convertible.
The F33 will share the same engine and transmission options as the F32 coupe, as well as the coupe’s general styling. So, imagine the coupe that you’ve seen revealed, but with this metal folding top.
Production of the 4 Series convertible (both 435i and 428i) … CONTINUED
Will we be seeing the F32 4 Series coupe make its public debut at the 2013 Shanghai auto show in just over a week?
These photos are purported to be production stage 4 Series coupes at the airport waiting to be loaded for a plane to Shanghai. They may look like they are wearing the usual pre-production prototype camouflage, but per insider Scott26, the camouflage is just protective vinyl for the trip.
Although the production 4 Series coupe has recently been spotted completely revealed [pics below], we … CONTINUED
We have looked at the F32 4 Series Coupe against the E92 3 Series Coupe (comparison pics), now let’s look at how the 4 Series Coupe looks against its most direct competitor in the marketplace – the Audi A5 Coupe.
Compared to the A5 Coupe, the 4 Series Coupe in concept form is:
+ 0.6 inches (16mm) length
- 1.8 inches (28mm) width
- 0.5 inches (12mm) height
+ 2.3 inches (59mm) wheelbase
Note: these are calculated using concept (not production) 4 Series dimensions.
As for the aesthetics, well, … CONTINUED
Now that we have seen the production 4 Series coupe fully uncovered, a natural comparison to draw is between the 4 Series coupe (F32) and the model that it succeeds, the 3 Series coupe (E92).
We do not yet know the official dimensions of the production 4 Series coupe, but for reference the concept 4 series dimensions are:
1.6 inches longer than E92 3 Series coupe
1.6 inches wider than E92 3 Series Coupe
1.3 inches lower than E92 3 Series Coupe
1.9 inches longer wheelbase than … CONTINUED
We have updated with even more photos of the BMW F32 4 Series (435i) coupe in Sport Line, showing even more angles. Enjoy!
Caught during a night time photo shoot is this production F32 4 Series Coupe, which gives us the first ever look at the final (and uncovered) 4 Series!
This 435i coupe still looks unique, sleek and sporty despite its toned down front fascia, rear bumper and side view mirrors designs (compared to the concept model). The unique tail lights from the concept version also have not been carried over from the concept. The headlights seen here are the optional full LED headlights.
This appears to be … CONTINUED
U.S. BMW dealers have now received order forms for ordering their first demo 435i and 428i coupes (just as they did recently for the 2014 X5), and the forms give us a good general preview of the different lines, options and packages to expect for the 2014 BMW 435i and 428i (U.S. configuration).
Not much surprises on here, but it does show that full LED head lights will be available on the 4 Series (just as we spied up-close yesterday) and it may be equipped … CONTINUED
