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

At the rear there's a set of quad tailpipes and a lip spoiler.

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.
