We can now of course determine an opinion of the M4's appearance due to two factors , the BMW 4er Coupe Concept and scoop photographs of the M3.
Some minor cosmetic issues such as the mirrors and wheels remain but I would say that the render is very much around 97% of the production M4.

Yes I have said it . M4. Just as I have been saying for the past two years it will be the M4. You would be surprised how many dismissed the name on the opening press days at the NAIAS where colleagues had to bat away nonsense question of "will there be an M3 ?, will there be a 3er Cabrio ? Amongst others that refused to accept the common sense part of the decision.

Seems many cannot get their head around that with M4 there is that opportunity to introduce a new icon to BMW M. If you get it right and be original as your philosophy you can conceive a legend and the platitudes that follow. Get it wrong and you have an Audi RS 5.

Thanks scott for your input as always. hopefully the people who are so set on their opinions that "it will NOT look like that" like they have seen the M4 before with their own eyes. maybe now they can settle down.

Love the renders, love the specs, but if the bacon button isn't conveniently placed, no sale!

Not quite...you have the ones that keep saying "it wont look like that" like they have some magical powers to see what Scott actually sees with his own eyes.

Thats still the concept. the real 4 series will have a more bland look without those modern bumpers, the weird door handles and stylish mirrors and those 20 inch wheels.

These renders are great. I really hope that it looks like this, and not to bash on your renders but Scott has been wrong before. I hope that he isn't and that it actually looks like this because these are a masterpiece, but nothing is final until BMW has a formal unveiling.

97%? Holy crap alpine haha nicely done.

We still have no idea on the rear bumper however correct?

But I'd say your guess is spot on with the rear render.
