Just 2 weeks to the day before its debut, the F30 has shed more of its camouflage, revealing the lower front bumper and sideskirts.

If the F20 1 series is any indication, it's possible we could be looking at the F30 Sport Line model. As pictured below, the F20 Sport Line also features a very similar design on its bumper inlets - with horizontal bars running from the fog lights.

Like the F20, the 2012 F30 3 series is expected to be available in different 'lines' - possibly a Sport Line, Modern Line, and Luxury Line.

For F30 debut info, including engine lineup and sales/production schedule see -

And here's some bonus F30 photos from a recent Nurburgring test session, showing off its attractive proportions and stance as it hunkers down on high speed turns. Thanks and credit goes to Wilco Blok for the photos!
