Not sure if this pic has been on here before, looks alright from this angle, I've seen a couple of pics of the front end its got the same fish head look as the 6 series.

I hope they change it for the coupe version

It looks a damn side better than the normal 4 door, but then as mentioned, those large wheels make all the difference.

I thought the old 3-series coupe was good looking and I think they've definitely gone backwards in the looks department.

Watching Top Gear last night with the M5, I think all that gadgety stuff would be a top laugh.
Strange how he dogged it all so much as hes normally looking out for that kinda stuff!

No its not. Rover hold the rights to the "4 series" name. They have to use the 3 series naming convention.

I remember reading in CAR back in the 90s that the E46 coupe would be called the 4 series and that didn't happen. You should never believe any of the shite you read in magazines or on the web.

I think the top picture is a photoshop as well.

the plan was for uneven numbers for 4doors and even numbers for coupes but as was already mentioned the 4 was a problem

Who owns the Rover trademarks ??

Thought BMW might have taken the oppurtunity to buy it out while they could, if it was that big of a problem for them.

That's very odd, as BMW actually retained the rights to the Rover name and trademarks. Phoenix were using them under licence. The Chinese crowd bought the tooling and designs, but not the name. So watch out for a very familiar looking "Luckystar Full Moon Rotating Fish Excellence" in showrooms near you soon
