I dunno bro. They slashed the 8, and the 4 is a hot selling item.

I find these rumors interesting as if anything the 4er has been the best selling coupe model in BMW's lineup, more so than the 2er which always sold very low in comparison (sales didn't jump until the Gran Corolla arrived) and the 8er has been a sales failure seeing as its just a 6-Series with $20k added in price, so getting rid of the 4er would be odd. Also the 4er has heritage, although more so with its older and proper name (3-Series coupe). The 3-Series started as a coupe, and has always been offered in coupe form, even when they changed the number to 4 (which I still find unnecessary). On top of that, they just gave the 4er huge nostrils so it could have its own personality and design, would be weird to get rid of all of that and replace it with an entirely new model. That being said BMW has gone crazy in many areas, so it's definitely possible.
WTF, didn’t BMW just make the 6-series some sort of Luxo-GT crossover :

Yep, it replaced the ugly failure that was the 5-Series GT, and was an even bigger failure on top of that. Cancelled after 2-years here in the states.

It was funny watching this, I went through exactly the same thought process. Took me right around a month of ownership as well lol!

The shitty design really does NOT grow on you.

I was surprised to see them back away from the G80 as they were all excited about how "great" it is. Its a turd and a close second to the Pontiac Aztek in design. You can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig.

In case you were wondering what happens to every other E36 (and E46) in Eastern Europe. These cars are like cats - nine lives and all. And grass-roots racers/drifters and ricers keeping the motorsport/enthusiast side of BMW alive.

And a video from Garching about the M4 GT4. Cool to see under the skin and the facilities at M GmbH

Here's a true story from 2 days ago:

I pull into a PNW Best Buy to pick up a TV I'd ordered online; 2 kids - ok, young gents - come out carrying the TV and the first thing one them says is, "OMG and it's a FULL ///M even, OMG"
I'm like "yeah"
He's like, "Are you a big BMW fan? I mean you must be"
me: "yeah, always have been"
Him: "my boss just bought an E46 and that's, like, my fuckin dream car"
Me: "Yeah mine too! They're hard to find in good shape"
Him: "yeah"
Me: "how about the new one?"
Him: "uhhh ... weeellll" face goes red
Me: "me neither"

My 2 cents is BMW is trying to figure out how to get rid of the G8x/big nostrils problem as well as falling sales for non-SUVs.

By re-branding all sedans they can elegantly get out the "we made a mistake" and simply release a brand new sedan model that doesn't look like ass-cheeks coming at you.

Yep! It's polarizing, but I like it. I had grown bored of the F8X (…although I truly loved the car) and the F8X made the prior cars look soft……especially the E9X.

Where is 02M3ForMe ?

Wasn't he using their video as argument for G8x. Now Robert says he tried to overlook the looks but is seriously thinking about putting it up for sale.

Funny how that segment of the video is labeled "M3 is bad".
