Yes, just like we have a 335i and will have a 435i. One sedan, one a coupe.

No. I said that the 4er and M4 will feature adaptive LEDs I did not mention exclusively the concept. The designer of the concept headlights came to BMW in 2012 and therefore the car was already in development.
The benefit of LED technology now is that lights not only get brighter but become much smaller in unit shape. We will probably see something like the concepts on a future model.

The production 4er Coupe launch is imminent and M4 Cabrio prototypes have started to show up at the FIZ.
I hope so, those hex lights and led bars beneath them really set the 4 apart from the 3...

Fingers crossed for hexes on the LCI. Might be able to afford one by then hahaha

Based on what we saw on M5's (twin-scroll) turbos, there are weaknesses (to be more specific, there are two major weakness),
which comes from the design dictated by BMW to cost cut the expenses.

Factory M5 turbos are good for 60-70K.

I would love to get more details on the mechanicals, although I am beginning to think it will be a pretty conventional twin turbo setup with strengthened internals and around 2 bar of boost.

I wonder how the whole package will perform given the larger footprint of the revised 3 or 4 series.

so the ///M CCBs are 6 pot, while the std brakes are 4 pot? (up front at least..)

Just surprised that the std brakes look to be exactly the same as the ///MPBK that you can get dealer installed on the regular F30.

Hope the final design will be more aggressive than it appears to be in these latest photos!

Those rear view mirrors are more M like as oppose to what we have been seeing on the f80 m3 mules. Wonder if they will both sport those mirrors or this will be the m4 exclusive deal.

All the "piston counters" want their ceramic brakes.
