I thought they would have taken it to the USA too.

On closer inspection, although the page is titled "BMW 4 Series 2019 3D model", the URL (https://hum3d.com/3d-models/bmw-concept-4/#video) suggests that somebody just made a model of the Concept car.

At this point, the only thing that makes sense is waiting for production car to be made available to the general public.

Definitely baffles me too. Why SCOTT26 chose to attach a render from a bad quality 3D model site while real life photos of the 4 Concept are abundant, is strange to me. It's actually why I even clicked on the story.

Hopefully the 15% that'll change is that infernal grille!

I am late to the game, apologies. When is the M4 to be made available in the US market? I am seeing early 2021 most suggested, as opposed to mid-late 2020, or ~3rd/ quarter.

It does look better... but that's because it's now an Audi R8

This car has outline and stance? I can't see anything but *oink*.

While all these giant grilles look like ass, Shelby has done it the "best".

Was this one influenced by the Asian market too?

I think the shift in brands might be the most noticeable this time around.

The Concept looks way too special to be a base 4er, but I fear they will neuter it too much. I'm worried this will be a mix of both bland AND ugly. I'll take bold over that any day.

The disgusting hood line is missing on the pic... and itís a thing that changes it (for worse) a lot.

85% of the 4 Series Concept carries over to production. And whilst the details have been exaggerated for conceptual purpose. The details remain but are brought up to meet many properties for production.
