    Would you buy a BMW 4 series?

    With the 5 series being 192.9 inches long and the 3 series being 178.2 inches; I'm thinking 185 inches long and 74 inches wide might be a good size for a wagon. OK, I know most of you wouldn't go for a wagon, but what would you think of a 4 series? I read on one of those Autoblog and Egmcartech sites BMW was considering a 4 series.

    Re: Would you buy a BMW 4 series?

    I don't get why they would need one. They are a luxury maker and don't need to fill every gap. Plus the wagons are plenty bigger storage wise than the sedans anyways so why wouldn't you just have the 3 series wagon (touring) instead.

    The best idea IMO is to have them meet Merc's C Class at 180" then find a way to increase length by a couple inches on the wagon. No need for another BMW. They already have the X1 and 1 series here.

    imho you're a bit ahead of the times or BMW is a bit slow
    either
    - wait a generation or two & the 3-series will be that size
    or
    - get an Audi A4 which has already gotten that big

    Re: Would you buy a BMW 4 series?

    Well, there will be, sort of. It's called the 3GT. Like the 5GT it's meant to fill the gap between 5 and 7 series, but then of course between 3 and 5 series. If it turns out to be just as good-looking as the 5GT, then I will pukin' all the way to Chernobyl and back.

    No, I wouldn't buy one. BMWs are over-priced, too expensive to repair and have one of the highest cost-per-mile ownership costs that negate any superior driving dynamics they might possess. BMW talks about 0 maintenance costs because out of warranty costs are exorbitant and outrageous. Buy at your own peril.

    I'd go for a wagon, a 3 or 5 series wagon.

    It's an all-new name for an all-new car – meet the BMW 4-Series! That’s the fresh badge which will adorn a stunning new five-door hatch, Auto Express has learned.

    Based on the next-generation 3-Series, due in 2012 in saloon and Touring form, our spies have already snapped the new car out testing. That’s let us produce these illustrations, which show how
    the production model will look.

    Interesting. A four door hatchback based on the 3, but more performance oriented. Will sell slowly in the states.
