The official prices and images are out for the new 4 series in the US - http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/14/2...d-from-41-425/

As expected - priced a little higher than the sedan. No base 2.0 turbo in the US - so starts off with the 428 and the higher model being 435. Notably, the car is on the same wheelbase, is wider, a little less taller and beat this - slightly longer than the sedan.

I love the looks of the last 2-3 generations of the 3 series coupe. This one is not engaging my senses as much - but I have a feeling it will grown on me.

The car looks stunning ! Is it just me or does this actually look better than the 6 series ?

And it costs just £3000 over the normal 320d in the UK. It could be a game changer if we get a similar price difference and get the 420d under 40L ex showroom.

If I understand correctly, it carries the same chassis as the 3, same dash and the same engine options. Sounds like it could be assembled in india.

It could, but even at 40L, I don't think it would generate enough volumes to justify it. Cars like the E Class Coupe or the Evoque Coupe hasn't exactly caught the fancy of the average Indian executive car buyer. Even in Mini's case, BMW just assembles the more practical and high-selling Countryman, rather than the Cooper/S Coupe/Cabriolet range. India's not exactly a coupe-friendly country, as of now.

435i M Sport Spotted in Black! The official photographs didn't excite me and didn't do justice to the car's beauty IMO but this set surely makes the upcoming 4er desirable!BMW to kick-off a new segment with 4-Series!-f32m0.jpg

How badly I wish that! It would create a riot if its priced below 40L!! Not sure whether we will get the regular variants or only the M4 like it was the case with the E92!
