It's a rendering by Car and Driver. I've scanned the article for you:

Please BMW don't copy MB with those ugly LED's. BMW has to stay with classic looks and not ricer like MB has gone in the last decade.

The body itself is probably somewhat going in that direction but what I would like is for the grille to be more wider than taller like it is in the picture. In the render, the grille makes the car sit up more than it should and reminds me of how "tall" the C-class is. 3er's usually have a wider stance that make it look like it sits low.

and we know from previous hints that the turn signals will be under the main headlights semi-similar to the new 6.

otherwise i think its a fairly good mock-up. definately in the right direction overall but prolly off in a bunch of specifics here and there.

but i dont care, I WANNA SEE A COUPE!
