M4 Just Looks Like 435

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I, for one, think the M4 looks great or I would not have bought one, but there are hundreds of posts in here talking about the M4 looks. Those people, many of whom are E9X folks, talk about how you can't distinguish an M4 from a 435 and it doesn't stand out. Well just for those people I post the following:

What distinguished the E92 M3 from the 335? The point is that it is not about looks - it is about what makes them different.

Good idea to take black cars to hide the lines of the M3!! LOL

And by the way, they still look much more different then the M4 vs 435i!

That m3 looks a lot like the 335; black (and dirty) will do that to any car. The same way a black e46 m3 looks a lot like a black 330 zhp... just like a black m4 looks a lot like a black 435.

Exactly. I've never confused an e92M with a e92 335i or an e46M with a 330i zhp but the 4 series has that silly boomerang on the side and with the m sport pckg the front looks just as busy as the M4 plus the delta in fender flares aren't as pronounced as in previous gens.

M3 vs F30 is unmistakable however because the 335i has none of that

I've had a black m4 for a couple months now and not a SINGLE person has confused it for a regular 4 series. I've had about a hundred people compliment it and notice it as a an m car. What the car looks like in person and dissecting pictures are two different things. All in all, who cares? I bought an m4 for me.... Not for anyone else......
