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.
We just showed you the all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe [Official Thread], now have a look at the 4 Series Coupe (F32) versus the outgoing 3 Series Coupe (E92).

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. Launched as the latest generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment. The “4” in its title headlines this new product line for the Coupe and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but that any way you look at it, the new 4 … CONTINUED
The 4 Series M Sport drops some camouflage and we get our most revealing peek yet, on a F33 4 Series Convertible prototype.
Have a look at the latest F33 4 Series convertible prototype, revealing more of its defining characteristic – its metal folding roof. Earlier spyshots (reposted below) show the hard top operation and the design is largely similar to the current E93 convertible.
The F33 will share the same engine and transmission options as the F32 coupe, as well as the coupe’s general styling. So, imagine the coupe that you’ve seen revealed, but with this metal folding top.
Production of the 4 Series convertible (both 435i and 428i) … CONTINUED
BMW Insider Scott26 provides a preview of the upcoming F33 4 Series Convertible:
We will shortly be seeing FEP (final evaluation phase) F33 Cabrios very soon as they have arrived for camouflage application at the FIZ , some other new unseen models have arrived in order to begin public testing.
In the meantime we know what the car will bring.
The 4er Cabrio will be launched six months after the Coupe later this Spring.
Which means we will see it later this year with a debut set … CONTINUED
Our member artists continue to give us potential previews of the 2014 BMW 4 Series with some great digital renders. Harold Wood has put together these speculative preview of the F32 4 Series Coupe, F33 4 Series Convertible, F32 4 Series Alpina B4, and F82 M4 coupe.
We bring you the first ever look at the F33 3 Series convertible (or 4 Series as it may be called when released) in testing with its hardtop roof retracted. The F33 largely shares the same proportions with the current E93 3 series convertible, although like the rest of the new F3x 3 series generation of cars, it will have slightly shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, and a bit more rear legroom.
These photos also represent the first clear look at the interior of the F33 convertible, … CONTINUED
We’re happy to share the first spyshots of the F33 4 Series Convertible with its top down and in operation. Earlier spyshots suggested that the 4 Series Convertible will retain its folding hard top mechanism, first introduced on the predecessor E93 3 Series Convertible. These spy photos officially confirm this. As far as we can tell, the hard top operation and design is largely similar to the E93′s so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was a takeover from the current car.
That’s where the similarities end … CONTINUED
The F33 4 series convertible prototype continues testing and we bring you another set of photos from the second spotting. As clearly seen, the F33 4 series will retain its folding hardtop. The car is still heavily masked and it appears that it may feature a bit of a false trunk or heavy camouflage on the trunk lid, making it look more extended or larger than the actual design underneath. This is the reason for the odd-looking gap and space in the transition area to … CONTINUED
Reactions to the F32 coupe spy photos and videos we’ve posted so far have included some complaints that the F32 looks too long or has lost its sporty proportions. We beg to differ.
We revisited the earliest E92 coupe test prototype photos from back at the end of 2005 and we’ve posted below a comparison of the F32 coupe at this early stage camouflage compared to the E92 coupe during its early stages of testing.
Scrutinizing the photos, it’s easy to see how a camouflaged coupe appears overly … CONTINUED
