Purchaser Demographics Thread

What compelled you to purchase a 4-series over a 3-series sedan/touring? My presumption is that you, along with the rest of us here, wanted a car with a bit more emotional appeal over a 3-series. Would you say that's why you bought a 4 over a 3?

My guess is that the 4-series should draw a different buyer compared to a 3-series buyer. Maybe younger (more sporty styling), maybe older (no need for the utility of a 3-series).

I'm curious on the age or age group that some of the people on this forum fall into. Is the 4-series skewing younger than the average BMW buyer, or the average BMW 3-series buyer?

Please post whether you've:
  • Ordered a 4-Series Coupe or GranCoupe
  • Picked up your 4-Series
  • Plan to buy (and in approx how many months), or how many months ago you bought
  • Just exploring

As well as your age, and anything else you're willing to share that will allow all of us to paint a more accurate picture on just who exactly is buying the 4-Series. This can be a fun thread.

  • 25 years old
  • Plan to buy in about 2 to 3 months (Dec-Jan timeframe -- hoping to score a year-end deal)
  • This will be my first new BMW -- coming from what was a used E46 M3
  • Engineer
  • Technology enthusiast

Picked up a 2015 435i convertible this past Monday. First BMW. Coming from a Lexus ES350 and a Porsche Boxster S, fits the bill between the two.

39, management
leased 435i xdrive with power kit (a must) and perf exhaust in 02/14 for 36 mo. Aesthetically so much more appealing than F30.

Like the car a lot except it's not very nimble, especially with it's AWD set-up.
2016 M2 on radar with its even more potent N55 and smaller dimensions.

Good to see we're having people here that are coming from a luxury vehicle background.
