Because it is the 3er everything will be all-new - colors , trims and new wheels.
But there is another car. If you look above the Midnight Blue 335i you can see the wheels allbeit covered by the tarp,Of the 5-spokes that have been caught in other photographs. This could be a larger engined diesel model 330d or indeed a four cylinder turbo.

Marketing always brings cars that are more "realistic" sellers for example a 320d.
Speaking of colors, I wonder what new colors (if any) will there be for the F30? Certain color seems to "suit" a certain generation of 3 series, what new color will emerge for the F30?

the headlights are definitely distinctive in shape.. similar to the 1-series, but they look soo much more refined and balanced.. hopefully we get some nice front shots soon!

No wonder Apple and BMW are the top 2 most respected brands. Either way, I don't care...I love me some F30 spy pics
It's not a leak from BMW, promise.
I am pretty sure BMW had paid the so call "spy photographer" to take the photos and leak them on the Internet.

Cause with that angles I am sure he can take a better pic than that!

I would disagree highly on that last point. The E90 was advertised everywhere as the 335i dual exhaust model with 18 rims. If yuo'd been in Europe you'd notice that most of the E90s in the "common man" spec, the 320d (which I have ) are equipped with cloth interior, 16in rims, and options are usually automatic gearbox, may be xenons and climate control. Everything else is quite expensive and is on bigger models. So common man spec looks much worse than you think!

BMW will advertise the best looking non Msport model usually. Makes mortals aspire to things. In US I also don't think the 328i is advertised, it's the 335i.

However, what you're seeing in this particular add is a 6 cyl model (it has all chrome grills - mark of upper end range) but they are very possibly shooting different models for the catalog so it can be the 4 cyl 328 model too, not the top end like the big chrome rimmed blue car (probably 335 or 330d like others said).

Every BMW used in filming and photography is the first of the line and per looking the part are fully optioned. They are also crushed because they still are prototypes.

There are three cars on the shoot. Just been informed of that today.

As for initial launch of the E90 we used two cars - Sparkling Graphite 330i (335i was only Launched for the Coupe first) and a 320d in Arctic Silver.

The US is different because of the segment and it is the top-spec models for there. One example is in Europe for the launch of the F10 5er the car was a 535i but for the US Market BMW NA they used the 550i.

BMW still going with that same ugly pig nose front end all their new models r coming with. The 5 series is basically a smaller version of the 7 series and this 3 series from what I can c in the pics looks like a smaller version of the 5 series. Let's just say I'm glad I have a E92. I hate American cars but that CTS-V coupe is looking better and better every time I c more & more of the F30. Maybe the coupes will look better at least I hope so or it will be bye bye BMW for me.

It won't be 'pop up.' It's going to be fixed.
