    Spy pictures/photos of the upcoming 2013 F32 BMW 4 Series Coupe (435i)

    So, anyone used to the idea of a 4 Series yet? Because we sure aren't. This is the upcoming F32 4 Series, likely a 435i. Just as a reminder, the new naming conventions are as follows. The new 3 Series Sedan is F30, the wagon is F31, the F33 is the convertible version of the 4 Coupe, the F34 is the 3 Series GT, and the F35 is the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Thank you BMW for screwing everything up and complicating the model lines needlessly.

    Just a money grab by BMW. They will up the price difference between the sedan and coupe. Even though it is just a 3-series chassis with two doors.

    badge starting with "4" is going to look very... odd.

    I have a feeling this is just the new 3 series coupe. Not a random 4 series.

    Agreed.

    And I kind of like the way the new 328i interior looks. Getting a little more "Audi"ish, for lack of a better term. I feel like BMW has been slacking on the interior changes for awhile.
    Never thought I would see the day...

    There is no new 3 series coupe. Coupe is going to be a 4 series now.

    Complicating the model lines needlessly is the BMW way... I certainly hope that the M version of this vehicle will fix that terrible steering.

    It should be a 3 coupe. What are they getting at with this idea? I guess they really want them set apart

    I think because Audi did the A4 and A5 BMW is mimicking it. Stupid to throw the 3 Series coupe away though.

    What really makes no sense is why the coupe is the 4 series. Sedan...4 doors (5 with the trunk or in a hatch version), Coupe is much closer to 3.

    The most important thing would be to keep the weight down even if f32 would be slightly bigger than e92. We need to wait for an independent weighing to see how it differs from the e92. It will take a while...

    Looks like $#@! I'd say, but then again, it might be a little too early to judge - way too much camo. I dont think I'll ever get used to the 4 series $#@! though, BMW $#@!ed up big time with their new names........

    What a fail. I hope at least the 1 series doesnt go to $#@!. I dont think id get a new BMW after the E9x. The only thing that hit it off for me was the F10 chassis.

    We'll see how it looks, I'm not ready to discount the design yet.
