M4 should have V8 SMG, all 3ers should have opeional or standard idrive. New 3.5L engine probably making 250 HP or more, maybe 270 to compete with G35C better.

As much as it was an internal secret BMW. management confirmed internally that the replacement 3er coupe/ cabrio will be designated 4er .

Knowing how much the 3 means BMW will introduce the M3 sedan and more than likely a Touring model to challenge rampant C-Klasse AMG cars.

The coupe it is not a folding hard top but a winter hardtop . The canvas roof is a variation on the 6er fin roof - improved packaging more luggage space and less weight are benefits of this compact design.

The 4er shares many styling links with the Z4 such as angled surfaces and rear end with lights cut into the rear bumpers . The front features a flat wide kidney grille like the Z4 and sharply cut light units following the shape of the Z4.

The 4er looks nothing like the 3er this is why BMW have worked an individual design into the programme . The 6er coupe and cabrio have been a very successful programme and they want the 4er to follow the same idea.

The coupe will no longer be the entry model as it will have a smaller brother so it repositions itself against the CLK Mercedes-Benz.

Engines will come from 2.5i to top line M 4.0i V8 with 407 BHP , Diesel will come later .

Is Chris Bangle in charge of camo treatments, too? Because DANG, Bimmer know how to make their mules look ugly. I mean, I realize that's the point, but wow.

This mule is really good looking, how is it ugly? (don't rally matter though...)
I especially like the rear 3/4 view of the last 2 pics - body has perfect shape.
The front end of the '99 3-series coupe/vert looked better than the sedan, so I'm expecting this to look better than the sedan as well, and I hope Bangle changes the rear end for the coupe and vert coz the new sedan's rear end is to on.

These coupe spy pics match very well with Huckfeldt's impressions. I have few doubts that this will be the best Bangle BMW up to date (and please don't start with those 'that is easy' sort of comments).

Not specifically. I was trying to avoid another bashing BMW contest.

Is this technically considered a Bangle design? Or is this post-Bangle...
