BMW 4 Series Coupe 435i Sport Review
Three to four...

Introduction

The 3-series two door coupe has been synonymous with the brand for the past 30 years like the heavenly pairing of wine and gourmet cheese. Why then has BMW in all their infinite wisdom decided to split the coupe from the sedan?

Surely the reason isn’t to give you a slightly different chassis just so they can charge you a little more for it? How absurd! But we kid.

BMW has taken a trend to split their sportier models away from the ‘sensible’ ones in recent years. The rationale seems to be that the odd numbers will be reserved for their sensible saloons while the even model numbers would find association with their performance oriented two doors.

While we don’t fault the brand for wanting to reorganize their model line-up, we’re still not thrilled at losing the 3-series moniker attached to some of our all-time favourites. i.e. M3, 335i, etc.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
