They look so much the same, the 4 Coupe with the M4 Coupe... yuck... The 3 Sedan and the M3 are a little more different than the Coupes.

Great job UK6. Can you do the same for the sedans, please?

When I see a 4-Series on the road, it is pretty, but i am not so impressed. After all the comments about the 4-Series being quite similar to the M4, i started to get worried, as I did order the M4 already.

After UK6's post I am, however, by no means worried anymore! There still is a big difference and all the parts I felt were a bit "normal" and boring on the 4-Series come across much better on the M4.

I must agree with M3ryder55 - POST OF THE YEAR!

Why is my heart beating at the same rate as the animated GIFs?

Great job! Could you do one for M3? Thanks.

while we are about it, could you do a M3/4 version too?

The specs say the wheelbase is the same, it would be cool to see all the other differences like window angles etc.

And maybe help folks decide which one to pick...

^^^

Can you also do one that changes between an M3, a used 911, and a C7? Because I am trying to decide. Also an M5 since lease rates are low.

And for that guy whose wife wants him to consider an X5 instead, can you do one for that too? Just so it's clear I am asking for an image that changes between an M4 and his wife so he can decide whether to keep the wife or tell her take a hike an get the M4. I think the curves will line up pretty closely.



Very clever idea though, UK6. I figured it was worth giving it a separate thread.

haha, that's awesome. I guess I never worried too much about comparing regular vs. M. Just knowing the differences that you can't see is the most important to me. Although I am a big fan of the differences between the M3 and the 3 series sedan.

I'll do an M3 later, Mineral Gray maybe?

I did it with the M-sport 4 series, the regular 4 series looked massively different.

Would you please use Glacier Silver Metallic on the 335i and Silverstone II on the M3? Thanks!
