Another look at the F32 4 Series Coupe Concept debut at the BMW Design Night held two nights ago. Adrian Van Hooydonk, head of BMW design, talks a bit about the design of the F32 concept.
BMW held its Design Night premiering the new 4 Series Coupe Concept yesterday evening. The heads of BMW design and marketing were on hand to introduce the beautiful new concept.
The F32 4 Series coupe will begin deliveries starting late summer – early Fall of 2013 and it’s currently rumored to be projected for a “just over” 2,000 euro higher price tag than the F30 3 series.
Here are some photos and video, via krone.at and exklusivgolfen.

The 2012 Essen Motor Show is underway and BMW has trotted out many of its models showcasing BMW M Performance Parts. Of particular note is the debut of the F31 3 Series Touring with M Performance Parts.
The F31 and F11 generally share the M Performance Parts from the sedan versions [recent F30 gallery] – including black kidney grilles, front bumper splitters (carbon fiber for the F11), carbon fiber mirror caps, rear diffuser, side skirt trim, M Performance brakes, M Performance exhaust system [recent sample video] and 20″ wheels (different styles for the F31 and F11).

The dream comeback in the DTM, culminating in the drivers’, manufacturers’ and team titles, was the defining feature of BMW Motorsport’s 2012 season.

MotorSport Magazine was in attendance with us at the 40 Years of M Event at the Nurburgring, where BMW revealed the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition.

This video demonstrates the Adaptive High Beam Assistant in the 2012 BMW 328i.
Currently, only the F30 and F01/F02 (7 Series) LCI (facelift) possess this new High Beam Assistant where the system is variable, and not just “ON/OFF”.
In the first of the 3 clips in this video, both left and right headlights are used for high beam as if you have manually pushed the stalk. The second and third clip show motorway driving and this is where High Beam Assist becomes more variable. At most times, only the left xenon goes to full whilst the right remains dipped. The beam is also shifted left depending on oncoming (and incoming) traffic.
