bmw 3 we hardly knew ye

I don’t think I’ll ever get used to calling it a “428i xDrive”, but I’m also not buying one. In any case, here it is, the BMW 4-Series, official photos.

    If you're going to insist that the coupe a different series to the sedan then at least put some effort into making it look somewhat different. This simply looks like a 3 series with two doors - even more so than the E90/92.

      To be fair, the thing on the picture should really be the 3-series coupe. I guess I was living under a rock, so I didn't even know that the F30 coupe was going to be called 4-series. The 3-series coupe and sedan always looked pretty similar, except that coupe had longer doors.

    audi's A5 is a much nicer looking car

  • MaintenanceCosts So there is no Sonata trim without some type of Theta engine.It seems like they've been doing a bit better when attached to a hybrid system, so that's probably the one to get, but they're going to have to go several years without further engine troubles before I'd trust a H/K ICE product again.
  • Lou_BC Full sized sort of autonomous RC's. Cute.
  • Art_Vandelay Autonomous capabilities are being deployed (or planned anyway) in multiple combat vehicles. Should be fun from my perspective
  • Drew8MR Interior is trivial now you can get repro everything in various levels of quality. Getting the top sorted will be a couple grand, but I'd drive it as it. I drove a $1500 67 GTO convertible for 20 years, not every old car needs to be like new.
  • John Not everyone pays that much for power. Mine is 10 cents per kw…..
