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

All designs since 93 or 91 are bangle designs, that is when he as director of design for bmw. It's still all bangle now, but hooydonk runs the bmw division's design now.

That's what I thought... I knew Bangle was "promoted"... I was wondering if the new 3/4-series was designed before... probably so. In any event I like them both, compared with other Bimmers of late.

From today's Autocar Magazine:

3-SERIES COUP-CABRIO CAUGHT TESTING

Heres the car that many BMW sources swore the firm wouldnt build: the folding hard-top 3-series convertible. Caught undergoing night testing in Germany, this prototype shows the car to be close to production. We expect to see it unveiled in the autumn at the Frankfurt Motor Show, although the Touring estate will probably be the next variant on sale.

Theres no doubt that the engineering is extremely well executed, with interior space for four people and a very smooth roofline. The 3-series coup was also caught on test: its a substantial-looking car with a high rear deck.

Scott mentioned both were testing, and the board was deciding whether it would be finally approved.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or is this a new BMW with a trunk lid whose leading edge is an extension of the car's shoulder line? Oh praise be..!

I come across this link on the net:

http://retractable.free.fr/uk/cars/bmklapp.htm

Shows how a BMW might have looked with a retractable metal-roof...

I think i might wait until the 'wrapping' is pulled of this car to judge it, but if it looks like a scaled down 6 series, then bring it on BMW!

K, im really getting confused. Will the 3 series coupe and convertable be called 3 series or 4 series? First i hear that they will be called 4 series, then i read that the 3er name is to established, now its back to the 4? Now 3er? Arrrrrr.....

the 3 series coupe and convertible will be known as 4 series. but i also heard that they already planned to develop 4series that will be a medium-size coupe (probably 6-series little brother). btw,if they did it.. i think it only waste their money developed two coupe in the same market segment.
