I'm more concerned with how proud they will be of it and available options to configure the car than the font . But, I would show up at the Welt with dental floss and 3M adhesive remover to pull the M logo off before I began the loop drive.

Gotcha - interesting and valid reasoning. I'm guessing lack of LSD is part of it.

Have to admit, I'm drooling over this. was going to get my fiancee the CLA250 but this is a definite game changer. Oh and yea, it's "for my fiancee" lol.

Wonder if they are going to debut the M2 or 2M, because I see a high potential in success as the car is stunningly beautiful--must be so for driving pleasure as well.

You haven't noticed this on the F30 models ?
Could be wrong, but is he referencing the part of the hood (the "cut corner") that abuts the headlight? If so, the F30 is different...there is no crease in the edge of the hood where it meets the headlight, it's a smoother transition.

Am I the only who doesn't like the Instagram picture? Looks very in-aggressive, and round like a VW beetle for some reason hope it's just a bad angle

You are not the only one...

I hope shoulder line is more pronounced

I do like the front a lot

I am looking forward to the 25th

Looks good, though the body is so stubby and stout that it needs at least one size bigger wheels. Just like the E60 I think this car needs large wheels not to look heavy in the lines. E60 with 17' looks downright terrible while it looks very muscular, imposing and balanced with the M5 wheels.

Of course I will reserve final judgement until I see it in person but at this point i prefer the look of the E82.

Looking real good so far. Just needs some coilovers and a more flush wheel fitment.

Strange that it looks less aggressive at the front end than the M135i, also you would think they would have a pano sunroof for the 1&2 series by now, the regular one looks very dated.

in my opinion, the front of the 2 is how the 4 should have originally been designed; something to differentiate it a bit more from the 3

Is it a "sports car" or a "sporty coupé? BMW doesn't consider the 4 series a sports car

LSD as M Perf part will be a must if you ask me. I felt like the 1 series was heavy cornering when I drove and an LSD would help that IMHO

Can we get a photoshop in AW with black wheels and CF spoiler?

Maannnn.. I'm thinking the same thing guess we will just have to wait for more specs, pricing and reviews. If M4 ED orders don't come out of dealers allocation I'm def jumping on the M4
