    BMW wut, I predicted this a month ago but didn't think they would be this stupid, They separate 3 and 4 series cause "sedan and coupe" and then make a 4 series gran coupe? which is literally a 3 series? wat.

      Not sure what the e30 m3 diffs were originally geared at.

            Will,

            You have to understand the difference between a sedan and the gran coupe. I'll let this video do the explaining. Just watch the first 6 min.

            As you can tell, it's a lot more than just a 3 series.

              Frame less doors and a hatchback doesn't make it that much different. Its still going to compete with the 3 series. It doesn't make sense. BMW is crowding their range.

                I'll agree with you that they are crowding their range, however, they've been doing that for many years and it hasn't slowed them down.

                  Think about this, currently they make: X1, 2-Series, 3-Series, X3, 4-Series, 5-Series, X5, 6-Series, X6, 7-Series, and i3. Soon the i8 and possibly the X4. Now you'll notice that I didn't mention the M or Z -cars either, just categorize those in the series as you see fit.


                  It's a large variety, but think back to the large variety they offered with the E30 and even all the different cars they had on the market back in the 80's.

                  All I'm saying is that the little things like frameless doors and hatchbacks make all the difference to some.

                    4 series grancoupe is badass. Similar room as a sedan but way more sporty. The x4 is out and is amazing feels like a race car in a SUV. Both cars are still bmw at the core just a different exterior that were use to.

                      Got bored and decided to paint all the bottom parts on the track car so it doesnt rust, as it will be sitting outside for next couple months.

                          Looking to buy an e28 or e12. If anyone knows of one that isn't being advertised locally or on the forums let me know. Finders fee? :)

                            Anyone around the Tacoma area know of a guy with a grey/charcoal dinan badged e39 540? Aftermarket wheels/exhaust?

                            He just ate shit out on the Pt Defiance 5mile drive. If he missed that tree he might have ended up in the Puget Sound. Lucky guy.
