If they do put M4 badges on. Lets start a revolt and all owners put M3 badges on their coupes. Screw bmw.

Is that a m4 coupe behind the m4 at the beginning of the video? The back looks like a 6 series.

It's an M6. That video is pretty old, that's why it's still in camo form.

if it weren't for wheels this might as well be F30 3xx, F10 5XX or any of the same tails variety.

I thought for sure they were going to have to rename it M4 if the 3-series coupe became a 4-series, but M is heading towards becoming it's own sub-brand

, so they could conceivably keep their own numbers.

PLEEEEEASE do not put in fake engine noises, or resonator pipes on the engine like the M5. I don't need engine "grunt", just let me hear that sweet turbo spool!!!

Looks very nice!

Sounds like ass, but I'm sure they will get that sorted soon.

Fake engine sounds are the worst idea ever. Now if you were to amplify only specific sounds within the actual engine, or do some kind of processing on them perhaps - that might be a cool idea.

The warning sign is obviously aimed at thse reindeers smart enough to read the symbol. Those that haven't sharpened their skills become M3 roadkill.

How could they become their own sub-brand? Their actions in the past year have been the opposite.

BMW have started putting M-badges on every car. The newest being the M-diesels and the F21 M135i.

I can see this becoming a short term money grab. The dilution of the M-brand will eventually bite them in the ass.

I think part of the reason why the front end looks so promising is that the camo is covering where the headlights would connect to the grille... that being said i havent seen an f30 in person yet so maybe that design is better than it appears in pictures.

Lol the "Lisa needs braces " is Simpsons reference where Homer is being asked to give up his dental plan and his subconscious keeps trying to remind him that Lisa needs braces. Though I'm not sure how it relates to the power dome......

i think 450 hp is more than enough to differentiate this from a ///m335i

i wonder if the m-sport brakes will deliver similar braking performance to this car b/c i thought they were also 4-fixed front/2-fixed rear?
