Cool Real life comparison look at 2, 3, 4 series in M Sport and Estoril Blue II

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Was at Bavarian in Belfast and took some shots of 2 series, 3 series and 4 series in a row, all Msport, all Estoril Blue.

The Sun and shadows were working against me, but the photos give a good overall comparison.

I love the 4 series but got to admit that 2 looks good. Think I prefer the fog light front end to the m235i front end which is unfortunate!

The only thing the 2 needs is better wheels. Great photos

Awesome! What a line up. Estoril blue is incredible in person. Mine's coming that way.

Had the identical reaction....not a dime's worth of design difference among them....just measure your wallet thickness and pick your preferred size.

The 2 has the best front end by far. But the EB looks best on the 4 especially with those 19" rims.

Agreed, not a fan of the headlamp bleeding into an extended kidney grille, much prefer the separation.

That is a LOT of blue... I have to admit.. this really re-assures my love for the 2.

3 is still my favorite. A sport sedan with two doors chopped off just looks odd imho

Imho the 2 series looks the best. The 4 series is actually too wide and low (not in a good way)...looks flat like a pancake

2 and 3 look miles better than the oddly proportioned 4.

unfortunately the 2er front end looks so much better...the grills on the 3 and 4 should have been closed off from the headlights...can't wait to see an M2

My thoughts exactly. Call me old fashioned. The 3 just looks more "BMW" to me somehow.

The 2 kills the 3 and 4 from the front. The rear, it's a toss up.
