We’ve spotted the BMW M235i Coupe again and although it remains in the previous stage of camouflage (you’ve seen it revealed in the photos below anyway), this is our first ever look at the 2 Series Coupe versus its older brother to be, the 4 Series Coupe.
Next to the 435i, the M235i appears to be a bit taller. But, it’s clearly narrower and cuts a squatter figure than the sleeker and more stretched 435i coupe. Remember too, that the 2 Series prototype still wears some … CONTINUED
Here is the German pricelist for the 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe, which also includes a full ordering guide.
You’ve seen our comparisons pitting the all new 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe (F32) against the E92 3 Series, Mercedes C Class, and Audi A5/S5.
Now see it versus its close brother – the F30 3 Series Sedan.
You can now visualize and preview your own 4 Series Coupe with the BMW online configurator/visualizer.
It’s not the market specific build-your-own configurator that will include pricing and market-specific packages/options, but it’s still fun to play with the different lines, colors, interiors, and wheels options.
The release photos of the 4 Series Coupe M Sport left much to be desired, coming in only one color (Estoril Blue) and in a limited number of angles.
But, we’ve got some more looks for you – in multiple angles and in an array of production colors (and two fantasy colors). They are pictured here with the optional 19″ M Sport wheels (Style 442M).
The 4 Series M Sport package is equipped with:
M Sport suspension standard (RWD models only)
You’ve seen the comparisons between the BMW 4 Series Coupe and the E92 3 Series and Mercedes C Class, not have a look a BMW’s newest coupe versus the Audi A5 and S5, the 4 Series’ closest and strongest competitor.
As you can see in the tables inside, the specs between BMW’s and Audi’s midsize coupes are very similar in performance (for the 435i and S5) and each have nearly identical physical measurements, except weight and weight distribution.
Many BIMMERPOST members were in attendance at the BMW North America Open House event this past Friday in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. While great times were had by all from the various models and exhibits arranged for their visit, the highlight (and surprise) of the event was the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe to the group. This represented the first ‘public’ reveal of the 4 Series Coupe as Friday coincided with the online reveal of the 4 Series Coupe.
See below for some photos of … CONTINUED
We’ve put together a comparison versus the physical specs, powerplants and performance of the new 4 Series Coupe and the Mercedes C Class Coupe, as well as the comparison photos.
The 4 Series has the C Class Coupe beat in the performance department, hands down. As for styling, well that’s subjective, but the comparison photos inside should help you form your own opinion.
Remember the photo set we posted which first revealed the 4 Series Coupe — the ones captured in downtown LA during a BMW commercial shoot for the F32?
Well, here’s the results of that shoot – the first 4 Series Coupe promo trailer. Click on thumbnail inside to view the trailer (at BMW.tv).
Head of BMW design, Karim Habib, talks a bit about the exterior and interior design of the BMW 4 Series Coupe.
Generally, photos enhanced in post-processing, such as many of those used in BMW’s official 4 Series release photos, look better than a relatively untouched photo. However, with the 4 Series, we dare say that it’s looking best in ‘natural’ photos so far, such as in these from a live studio photo shoot.
We have uploaded our BMW 4 Series Official Thread with even more materials – new wallpapers, new videos, and full technical specs for all models.

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
