The 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) is now under two months away from its world debut at the Geneva auto show and we’ve got some pics from a recent sighting for you.

We recently posted the 2014 BMW 435i Gran Coupe Dealer Order Guide (released to U.S. dealers for the ordering of their launch/ demo cars). As before, this list should generally be reflective of what options will be available for customer cars, though it may not be all-inclusive.

Also revealed recently were the 4 Series Gran Coupe patent design images, which give us a clear look at what to expect under the remaining camouflage. One thing the patent drawings doesn’t reveal to the eye is that the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be a hatchback.

New F48 X1 video as of January 6, 2014. We bring you the first live looks at the 2016 X1 (F48) prototypes. The F48 recently began its testing in August-September and while still heavily camouflaged, the test mules reveal a brawnier and stockier look than the current E84 X1. Compared to the E84, the F48 X1 features a shorter front end, shortened overhangs and a taller and more upright greenhouse. While some may mistaken the E84 X1 for a larger wagon, there’s no mistaking the upcoming F48 X1 as a compact SAV.

The F48 X1 will also make a departure from the current X1 by making the switch from RWD to FWD. It’s been built on BMW’s FWD “UKL” platform and should be offered … CONTINUED

We have added our newest photos of the 2015 BMW X5 M.

Testing on the second generation BMW X5 M continues while the prototypes shed some camouflage. This is the first red F85 X5 M we’ve seen and as with earlier prototypes, it wears the signature M components – huge front air intakes, more aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X5 model). We also have a better look at the quad exhaust pipes which, unlike the current X5 M, feature a new angled design (same as the upcoming M3 and M4).

We now see double-slatted kidney grilles fitted to the X5 M prototype for first time. This has … CONTINUED

We bring you the first live look at the 2016 X1 (F48) prototypes. The F48 recently began its testing a couple of months ago and while still heavily camouflaged, the test mules reveal a brawnier and stockier look than the current E84 X1.

The F48 X1 will also make a departure from the current X1 by making the switch from RWD to FWD. It’s been built on BMW’s FWD “UKL” platform and should be offered in both FWD and AWD models. The … CONTINUED

We reveal to you the F80 M3 in production form! This M3 wears the Yas Marina Blue Metallic color with carbon fiber roof and was spotted during an official commercial filming session.

Seeing the F80 M3 in Yas Marina Blue for an official commercial shoot also indicates that this may be the launch color for M3 marketing material and for when it makes its debut at the 2014 Detroit auto show in January.

For the technical specs of the F80 M3, see our Official Thread.
