M3 vs m4

I think it's a case of different strokes for different folks.. I need a sedan and am programmed to like the 4 door better... But the coupe looks good too... If everyone liked only one thing, we would only need one bodystyle.. Actually only one automaker at that

I like the color, but alpine white will always be my favorite.

The difference in the colors and more importantly photography make a judgment from that comparison sketchy. Here are another couple closer comparison, although the lighter color on the coupe makes the contours harder to see:

what exactly is "Mineral White"? does it have silver and gold in it? I can tell it has silver but in some pictures it does seem to also have a yellowish tint.

It's not a flat white like Alpine. It's a metallic and it has a darker shade.

Can you imagine if - humor me for a moment - the sedan outsells the coupe???? That would be something.

How does the sedan, even with a bumper riddled with holes, look so much better than the coupe? Craziness.

Here's a side by side comparison between Alpine White and Mineral White.

Exactly! The M4 looks pretty good to me, on Gran Turismo

I wish an alpine white one spec'd the same was spotted.

It's gonna be a tough call between these two colors...

I'm a coupe guy, but it's hard to argue with this - the sedan looks much better with those rear fender flares, frustratingly so.

I think I'd still take an m4 over an m3, but it's not love at first sight

The F80 has more than it's good looks going for it this time around. The 5-series used to be a drivers car and a good choice for buyers of sport sedans that craves better quality of materials and more options than a 3 series offer. This is no longer the case IMO, the 5 is now a full blown luxury vehicle as the 7 series with hardly no sport left in it.

I think there are a lot of former 5 series buyers that will be eyeing the new M3. It's large enough, offers full Merino leather, has options like HUD etc. It's not impossible that it will outsell the M4 even if the E90 vs. E92 sales is in favour of the coupe.
