Looks great to me. But then I also really like the 228i gran coupe which has a very similar look (especially the back end). Let the hating begin...

So why does the 430I have MSport seats but the M440I doesn't?

And the M440I gets the M Mirrors now? To match the M50I even though the power variant?

So many questions lol

But the M440I looks good and the hatchback will be good to have again

It has been announced that iDrive 8 should come in December/early 2022 G2x/G8x production (not model year).

Might be only 20 hp increase since 2010 but it's WAY faster than a car from 2010. A 2010 bmw 328i did 0 to 60 in 7.6s. A 2021 330i now does it in 5.4 seconds. So who cares about hp numbers....

Exactly. So wouldn't that mean that this model will be out for less than a year before the other models start to get the dual screen iDrive screens? (Not that I care for them...)

So a M340xi is lighter by 200lbs, faster, better looking (subjective, I know), more practical and cheaper.

What am I missing?

Well I do agree with you on the first part, but the GranCoupe has a hatchback so I dont see how the M340I would more practical? Also the M440I will have the frameless windows which is really nice lol

Glad to finally see this launch. The car looks good overall except those pieces on the rear corners, not sure what is going on there with those bits.

I am surprised the interior door handle assembly and door storage pocket is so different compared to the G20. The G26 seems to have a much larger storage at the bottom of the rear doors but the handle assembly itself looks very basic and not as nice as the G20 door handles.

However, this style of vehicle is still perfect for many of us who want a little more practicality than a traditional sedan but not ready to move to an SUV.

Totally agree. It wasn't until you put them together that I realized what I didn't like about the coupe front end. There's a painted part of the number directly below the kidneys that isn't there in the GC or the i4. Much better without it!!

Also looks like the i4 grills separate a bit more at the bottom which also helps the design out a little bit IMO

It seems we're even on the way down in HP-ratings, at least in Europe. I read an article on bimmertoday saying the x30i will lose 13 ps (back to 245 ps) because of emssion regulations. It would also get an integrated liquid cooled exhaust manifold. This is confirmed in the G26 press release apparently.
Performance suffers a little too: 0-100 km/h in 6.2 s for the EU-spec 430i and 0-60 mph in 5.8 s for the US spec

Where was that announced? That's news to me.

The OS8/widescreen dash is supposed to come to the G20/G21 with the mid-2022 LCI, and to the 4 series in early 2023, last I checked.

According to ynguldyn (who is usually, but not always, correct):

July 2022: G20/G21
March 2023: G22/G23/G26
