Official F30 3 series



When it comes to a nameplate as storied and successful as the BMW 3 Series, the pressure builds on the storied German automaker with each successive generation. Expectations exponentially rise. Will the Ultimate Driving Machine remain ultimate? Well the sixth-generation, 2012 BMW 3 Series is here, and we're about to find out. From what we've seen of the press kit so far, BMW is continuing to tap dance that line between ever-increasing efficiency demands and the driver's car attributes that helped make the 3 Series -- and by extension BMW -- famous.

I'm quite excited for this. I will actually be attending the BMW 3 Series Hommage (tribute to all 3 series models) and F30 intro at the BMW Museum/World tomorrow evening in Munich. It's a special night in the BMW district and many of their buildings will be open with new or speciality displays, particularly tributes to all generation 3 series, until 2:00 am.

Here is a photo of one room they have setup in the Museum (or one side of one room)

It seems like the F30 will be a really decent car. I curious to see how the new 3 series will perform with the turbo 4 cylinder powering her. One thing I'm not too keen on, but could grow on me, are the head lights running strait into the grills.

wow .. so not interested. I rather have a 1 series then a 3 series boat. These cars have gone more into luxury then sports luxury.

I like the M interior but the rest doesn't look that special.

^^ Could not agree with you more! Look how aggresive and sport the new audi styling is. I expected BMW to follow suit in order to stay competative but this styling just looks boring to me. Barely and different from the current 3 series design

Maybe, if we look into a mirror, and say "Bangle, Bangle, Bangle" 3 times while spinning in a circle while picking our noses, Bangle will return, and fix what BMW has been doing lately.
