New grille, like or not, makes previous models look older.

M440 makes the M340 look really tame by it's side.
The 4 series actually looks pretty mean and in my opinion looks good!

new car is newer than older car, news at 11

Just wait for the 440 LCI, that's going to make the pre LCI seem older than the new LCI!

F30 made E90 look older. E90 made E46 look older. That's what a NEW car is supposed to do. Not going to pat BMW on the back for making a 2020 car look newer than a car from 2012

nice comparison. I know the grills are not liked by some but I am starting to really like it. I saw it in person as well and it looks good in person also.

So regarding performance is there any difference? I know the 440 is potentially lighter (I am assuming here) with it being a coupe but just considering engine power, like for like. Is the 440 up in the Bhp over the 340?

The new 4 series reminds me of the hitler mustache. Seen one today live, it's very ugly.

BMW should offer option of having the 3 series front. Just like a badge delete. Free of charge.

This guy doesn't know how to drive properly. He's playing with the throttle way too much.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Have been reading through this thread and it seems that we are equating "older" with "not as good." I could be wrong, but that's my perception. That said, I think we could all come up with plenty of cars that look older but still have a timeless design. A good example would be the Jaguar E-type or some of the older BMWs. The new BMW, especially the grill, make the previous generation seem slightly older but I'm not so sure it makes it better. I still feel that it's in a wrong direction (even though the new design looks good in certain colors) and it would behoove the company to take another look at the direction and re-prioritize based off what has worked in the past.

Ugh. I know. Everyone always talks about the grilles, but the tail lights on both cars are absolutely atrocious. I can live with the grilles, but the tail lights are a deal breaker for me. I am hopeful they will improve the 3er's tail at LCI, but I'm not sure what they'll do with the 4er. The whole slanted look is just awful on a BMW.

It's actually a little heavier apparently.
