Road and Track shares their top 7 picks for the best 3 Series / M3 ever made.
Supersprint gives us a look into their F10 M5 research and development process and the results of that process.
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)
M Sport Brakes standard (also available as stand-alone option on all 435i coupes and optional upgrade on 428i coupe when M Sport is chosen)
M aerodynamic package (front apron, rear bumper/diffuser, side skirts)

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 the 435 xDrive revealed at the event. Thanks to Accelerometer, awong and dbs600 for sharing their pictures.

Watch below the process of a BMW engine being born and eventually married to a chassis. They sure do grow up fast.
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.
