Now that the 4 Series Coupe has been revealed and the Convertible nears its debut, the next model in the lineup – the 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36), has re-emerged in testing, after a nearly 6 month hiatus since our last spotting. It has re-emerged with Eric Bana doing the testing and with less camouflage than ever – shedding the heavy camouflage from its front and rear (that’s not really Eric Bana).
What’s revealed is what was expected – a Gran Coupe styled 4 Series which effectively shares the same exterior styling as the Coupe, but with an elongated roofline and an extra pair of doors. The interior will also be shared with the other 4 Series models [previous spy pics].

Auto Express UK shares their first drive review of the 435i M Sport, which left them with favorable impressions.
On this episode of Ignition Carlos Lago goes to Portugal to test the new BMW 435i. The replacement for the 3 Series coupe, the 4 Series is wider and much lower than the sedan – in fact, it has the lowest center of gravity of any BMW currently on sale.
