Great to see that there's HUD installed in the promo car. I suppose M3 gets it also. Five stars to BMW!!

looks beautiful! I like the tail lights, slimmer than the 5-series and more refined, similar to the new 6-series The entire front end looks great as well!

oh...its...not ugly,but...neutral ?
i mean,if F20 delivers you emotions and nearly nobody stayed indifferent,then this 3 series is just...well,another new bmw. Fitted to the family design. All new and expected. Am i the only one here who thinks,that current E90 LCI is...well,more emotional/aggresive at least ?

I think the community likes both styles for different reasons. With the Bangle era, we all grew to like it because it had a balance of aggressiveness while still remaining sleek. With the F30, it's a favourite because closely follows the F10 5-Series in that it's just looks like a classy executive car with a touch of sport. We like each class for different reasons.

It could be the angle and the lighting, but the fenders look to be pretty aggressively flared, which I would like. As far as being a baby new gen 5? I say bring it. I love the styling of the new 5er, if they can scale it down successfully and make the styling a little more sporty for the new 3 that would be perfect, I say.

Mirrored car, in other words ) All the best,classic BMW shapes,but re-thinked with a touch on other exterior accents. For a bit less aggressive in stock , but more smooth lined in other hand.

I was just gonna post that.
From the look of the dash, you can barely make out that it will not have a pop-up or free-standing screen what weve being seeing on the test mules. There is hope afterall that the interior wont look like a VW Polo.

I don't think so, look at the first photo again. You can see the "stand up" screen.


Best regards,

No. We get the more Premium looking upright flatscreen first seen in the 6er and the new 1er.

I can see the "fixed stand up crap" in those blurred photos from about 25-feet from my computer screen...

I wonder if BMW is planning to introduce performance package for F30, just like the leaked pics of F20-performance concept, would be a great alternative to m-sport.

Looks promising. However, might be larger/heavier than a E39.

Yes @ the Geneva launch next March , just like the forthcoming IAA with the 1er.
BMW will exhibit every example of the F30 from the 318i to a 3er with Performance accesories.
