Beautiful pictures! I agree that the proportions are perfect.

M sport with adaptive suspension.
I think I'll even go for the manual and sacrifice two mpg on the highway. Besides, BMW tends to underestimate ratings. I get 30-32mpg in my 2006 325i which is a couple ticks above the EPA numbers.

This is great! Now to fully convince my wife that we need this and not an X5....

This reminds me of the 5 series sedan versus avant. I love the avant more than the sedan in the 5, and now it holds true for the 3.

I can't wait to see what the F32 is going to look like!

My ideal situaton would involve a 328i (not xi) sport wagon with a stick parked next to an E90 M3 Sedan and my 330i.


One can daydream.......
And I love the camo on the logo on the wheels....WTF?! It's like Clark Kent with his glasses...doesn't a all look like Superman.

Looking pretty good. Note the OEM F30/F31 mud guards. I think this car will look best in light metallic colors though with shadowline trim.

That is always the case sedan vs touring. Remember that where these come from, tourings are more popular than the sedan so they are designed that way.

No, it's just that dealers inexplicably always spec them that way, so that's all you find on dealer lots. You have to order and wait to get what you want.

I may have missed it -- but does anyone have insight as to when they will hit the U.S.?

The long hood doesn't go well with that body style.

I think the opposite, I am happy to see at least one station wagon that still features one of those, any other SW are FWD with a transverse engine, boring

I just saw one on the road, a new customer car. Unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to take a photo. Angel eyes were very pretty
