2014 BMW 4 Series - Yay or Nay?

Saw this interesting article published on Auto Blog. I for one appreciate the interior, although the "red" leather seats can be a different color.

Definite yay. Clean aggressive lines. Muscular looking design.

It puts the outgoing 3-series coupe to shame (too roundish and feminine).

Can't wait for the M4 coupe!

Definitely a yay. I like how the hoffmeister kink is less pronounced cos I actually hate it. Don't really like the vent and feel the doors can be a bit longer but overall it is much better looking than the 3 series coupe. I would still pick up the A5 sline or S5 over it though, esp the pre facelift.

I like the wider stance for sure, though the price point seems right for it?

[QUOTE]That added involvement comes at a price, though. The 2014 4 Series starts at $44,900 for the rear-wheel-drive 428i coupe ($49,000 with xDrive). The 435i raises that number to $54,900, and adding all-wheel drive takes you to $55,600.[/QUOTE]

Small price to pay to keep manhood intact.

New BMW is important for face. Driving old style BMW is embarrassing.

Nay

those black plastic in the lower front bumper scream "cheapness"
i think the current audi s5 (which the 4 series is trying to compete with directly) still looks nicer....and that's a 6 years old design!

The concept 4 series they had earlier looks great, but the production model front just look horrible.
