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.

Introducing the all-new 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe (F32)!
The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe marks the beginning of a new era for coupes at BMW.
