Ok so....
3 series = sedan, which has 4 doors.
4 series = coupe , which has 2 doors which evolved From the 3 series.
I think I got it.

I do like the looks of it even though I'm not quite sure how to categorize it since I can't call it a 3 series coupe anymore.

Except when they release the 4 series "gran coupe", which is a sedan. Sorry, "four door coupe".

You need to get your eyes checked. The bodyline on this car is chiseled FAR beyond the simply cadillac angles of audi's new cookie-cutter "sharmp" design. Don't get me wrong, the A5 and a few other of their models are really nice, but you can't touch this design, the angles, the beefy-ness of the hood/side profile.

A5 - straight lines and rectangles that look cool
435i - chiseled, sexy curves, and muscular looking

i'll admit my bias to BMW, but when the e92 335i was put against the A5, i tipped my hat to the A5 all day long. This time around, not even close. Audi has their work cut out for them, along with MB.

No matter how hard I try.. I just can't seem to get pass those ugly little "aftermarket looking" guppy-gills BMW decided to add to the side fenders.
I truly wished they put a bit more time to design a more integrated look, Or left it off completely.

I'm all for aerodynamics But they can keep those "side Air curtains" to themselves > Just make an even stronger motor to push this 4 series through the air faster!

240hp and 300hp twin turbo engines? that's weak, my 01' 330i makes 240hp, these things better get like 35 mpg.

yo a 6 series GT parked next to me and it is ****ing cool...4 door coupes (like the a7) are considerably different than 4 door sedans. 4-series GT would be pretty sleek and if they pull it off i'd be interested

M4 is f*cking retarded though...if i had one, i'd rebadge it M3 LOL

I like the idea of staggering the introduction of the coupe. I think this design fixes some of the severity of the sedan design.

You mean releasing them separately? They've done that since forever. The coupe is always a year after the sedan. And the m3 and vert are the year after that

They will call it the 4 series 3 door and count the roof as a door. The m4 vert will just be a screwed mess though. Screw you bmw. Seriously
