Arrow Hi-Res BMW F30 3 Series Pics Reveal Distinctive Headlights & Two More F30s !

Hi-Res BMW F30 3 Series Pics Reveal Distinctive Headlights & Two More F30s

The F30 fun continues. Yesterday we brought you the first shots of the new 3-series sedan as it was caught in Spain during a photoshoot.

Today, we're excited to share even better shots of this Sparkling Bronze F30 3-series. These hi-res versions show the front fascia in even more details, in particular the F30's unique headlight shape. The inside corner of the headlights appear to take on a very distinctive shape by angling in very sharply - a completely new design feature for BMW. What results is that the side of the kidney grilles appear to be exposed. We can't wait to see how this looks from ground level!

At the same time, there's also another two F30 models joining the scene. The first is in a dark blue color. You can also see a different premium wheel design and chrome trim around the windows on this second car. This second F30 is likely a different trim/line than the Sparkling Bronze F30. Above the dark blue F30 you can see the 5-spoke wheels of a third F30.

Recapping from yesterday: The interior of this particular car seems to be grey or beige. Interestingly, both dashboard and steering wheel have the same color. BMW actually seems to be repeating its past with their fully colored interiors of past days (also seen on F30 long wheel base prototypes meant for China). These shots also show that Head-Up Display will finally make its way to the 3-series, as well as the free-standing iDrive screen following the design scheme introduced with the F12/3 6-series.
