The BMW 4 Series is just months away from having it ‘s curtain raised in Detroit and Autoblog was able to get a sneak peak thanks to some nifty camera work. So this is the 4er. The name doesn ‘t slip off the tongue but it certainly looks the part. Slightly larger and a bit sleeker, this car should make a better case at commanding the expected price premium that our sources have prepared us for.

Look for the car to debut in production form at the Detroit auto show (along with an X4 based concept) and hit dealers sometime in the first half of 2013.
