From these new photos we can see that the cars will have an aggressive stance with flared fenders and wide wheels.

The interior looks largely the same as what's on the current 3 Series and 4 Series, but expect bucket seats and unique trim options.

A shadowy, no-camo teaser also confirms that the cars will have the same giant grille as the regular 4 Series.
