Edmunds InsideLine is reporting on what the future of the BMW X line might hold, namely a BMW X4, think BMW X6 but in 3-series size.

At the premiere of the 17th BMW Art Car Jeff Koons unveiled and signed his car in front of 300 international VIP guests on June 1 in the Centre Pompidou, one of the world’s most prestigious cultural institutions for modern and contemporary art.
