We bring you the most revealing photos yet of the upcoming 2012 3-series (F30)! Until now, the F30 has been fully cladded with little showing other than its general lines, shape, stance, and proportions.
The strip tease has now commenced with part of the headlights now visible - showing beautiful LED angel eyes and a wrap around sweeping headlight design. The tail lights have now also been partially unveiled, showing a wrap around design featuring upsweeping light bars, LED indicators, and regular brake lights.
The production rear bumper has now also been installed (albeit with camouflage tape affixed). Previous spy photos showed a heavily clad rear bumper with little indication of its styling.
In the close-up photo of the front-end, the grille can also be seen hiding behind the black metal mesh (look closely!)
Compared to the E90 3-series, the F30 features a longer wheelbase, but shorter overhangs, for a sporty squat look, as apparent in these photos. It will also have wider and lower kidney grilles (which can be somewhat seen in the closeup photo).
The F30 3-series sedan will make its world public debut at the 2012 Geneva Autoshow in March of 2012. Official F30 pics and details should be released by late this year. The F32 coupe will be unveiled a year later in 2013.
