Well I know some questions have popped up about the three new lines being offered by BMW as options on the new F30 3-Series. I myself had quite a few questions, and here is a breakdown of what these lines are all about.

First and foremost, these lines are not the only 3 cars we can choose from. A 3-Series can be ordered as is and optioned how you want to option it, just as has always been with a BMW. These 3 "Lines" are just extra options on top of what is normally offered. I tend to think of them as just an extra package, akin to a sports package, except that the package contains many more stylistic elements. Another way to think of them would be a pre-packaged BMW Individual car.

Because these lines are so customized, down to the color of the stitching, the lines can not be combined or mixed.

BMW has put out the following video to summary the three different lines, it begins with the following youtube video which then links to 3 additional youtube video (depending on which line you want to hear about). The video is narrated by BMW's own designer's including Christopher Weil. I've also including a small snapshot below of each of the three Lines.
