MI6, a member of the M3post.com forums, has snagged a new set of photos showing a blacked-out but "naked" M3 four-door driving on German streets. The coupe nose on the sedan body looks really good, and the bulging wheel arches add visual muscle without cartoonishly overstating the matter. We basically expect the car to exhibit all the goodness of the new M3 coupe with added comfort for backseat passengers. That's called a win-win, folks. BMW's going to move a ton of these. Follow the "Read" link to see three more shots of the M3 sedan dressed like a stealth bomber.

      The usual contsipated blandness from BMW. And when are they going to start paying GM royalties using Pontiac's signature split grill design?

      note the top of the kidney grill is not bisected by the hood, as it is with the sedan.
      the bisection has been one of my biggest pet peeves, because it is a styling element that began with chris bangle, which was unprecedented and made no sense stylistically and was totally bad feng-shui.

      w/the exception of the exhaust, the back looks like a cheap econo box from japan. lame lame lame.
      the only thing aggresive about this car is the headlights.
      even the 2 chrome ring nostils look weak..more st.bernard-ish.
      the black on black gives the appearance, if it was red it would look so "brutal" haha.
      therefore i dont "completely dig it"
      but at least it has bigger balls then most dogs.

      very hot, but I still think the coupe looks hotter.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Amen. I saw two 328i coupes on the way to work today.

        Unfettered un-Bangle-ized bliss!

      BMW would really be missing an opportunity if they did not bring us the 4-door.

      I think even the BMW's lately are starting to look old-fashioned. They need to do a complete overhaul in the design. All the models look too similar.

      I don't see it... M3 and IS-F... just the same cars with more power. The styling "difference" are so little that most people would not be able to tell the difference. Maybe people who drives these cars want to sneak up on other drivers, but if I'm paying $20K over a "standard" version, it better stick out like a horny elephant on steroids...

      mmm, though i've always been a bimmer fan, i'm still holding off to see what the new Cadillac CTS-V will bring. I know, i know it's a Cadillac, but it might just be worth it.

      however, it must be said, i would buy an M3 without hesitation.

      wow, it looks the same as the last generation 3 series, bmw what a shock... im sure the chassis is ofcourse better than last time... come on bmw, actually completly do something different... makes me sad, they got potential to try something different...

      At first thought, the couple front end on the sedan makes me happy...but then I think about how the smooth front end on that M3 sedan clashes with the rear end treatment...I think over all, I'd just like them to rework the lower front faschia than graft on the M3 coupe front end..

      I completely dig it!!

      I think the 4-door is much more aggressive-looking than the coupe. The coupe lacks brutality, IMO, looks too feminine.

      The sedan, especially in these pictures, with no shining bits, is menacing!
