(2012) BMW 3-series (F30) impressions. Cues from CS concept.

The current E90 BMW 3-series has only been on the market since 2005 but details about the next-gen model are already circulating with most agreeing that the next model will feature styling lifted from the Concept CS. Due in 2012, the next BMW 3-series will be the first of a family of BMW cars with a more recognizable face derived from the original styling of the Shanghai concept.
With the new 3-series, designers will attempt to address criticisms of the current cars awkward styling and lack of interior space. These renderings, compiled using information from sources close to the project show that the new car will have a pronounced kidney-grille with the air-intakes positioned on either side of the bumper just below the headlights.

The bonnet will sit much higher than on the current model to improve pedestrian safety, while the sides will be marked with a prominent character line and high beltline. Proportions will remain much the same as the current model but weight will be reduced thanks to the increased use of aluminum in its construction.

New options for the 2012 3-series will include hybrid variants as well as the latest version of BMWs Efficient Dynamics. The X-Drive AWD system is likely to gain favour thanks to a redesign of the system to reduce weight, which will only increase fuel consumption by 0.5L per 100km over RWD models. Other features that may make it to production include night-vision devices, a heads-up display and radar safety systems.

Three letters have made legendary BMW. The abbreviation "tii" stand in the 1970s for performance and lightweight. Now the Bayern want the recipe on the 3s.

By Georg Kacher ti, tii, tilux, TI / SA: For BMWFans are the magical shortcuts. 1600ti, 2002tii, 2000tilux and for the racetrack designed TI 1800 / SA today for sure glowing eyes. Nearly four years after the production end of the last BMW 325ti, at the end of 2007 at the Tokyo Motor Show again begun, the ti-drug public about bringing - in the form of a aufgebrezelten 1er-coupe with bold stripes rally, mattschwarzer bonnet, and a martial Schwellern-tii logo in mirror writing, as then at the very first turbo 2002. The tii overarching strategy of the Dekoset vehicle to complete all sorts of demands will come relatively slowly in the corridors. The first appearance is scheduled for the spring, when BMW for 1st and 3 different performance packages.

There are carbon kits, aerodynamic parts, larger wheels and brakes, bucket seats and a sport steering wheel with built-in wreath LED tachometer. Motorised remains 1er themselves as tii unchanged. At larger 3er BMW has much more. The first makes the facelift in the summer of this year. For the current 3-coupe is also a tii package in the discussion. Because the customers in this class tend to spend more money than the 1s, major changes are not ruled out. On the wish list are stronger M3 brakes, a special 19-inch sports suspension, a double-clutch gearbox and a sharper charged three-liter turbo with around 355 hp. How exciting is the topic tii admittedly only with the successor models: • 1er new, at the end of 2011 • 3 new, early 2012 • X3 new, early 2011. What the X3 in this compilation Wikipedia? Quite simply: Also based on X-be it an offshoot tii. This would correspond to the abbreviation tii-S variants of Audi (Q5 S), and the AMG-Mercedes vehicles (ML and GLK). When a BMW sales man to be believed, then the offer will tii between the M-Sport package and the pure M-positioned

This is simply an artist rendering...applying design cues from the CS concept to a possible e9x replacement.

I see large e92 M3 influences in that rendering. It's basically a e92 M3 body (fenders door lines and stance) with a Concept CS front (Headlights, front grills, and angular front intakes) and a slightly morphed boot (taillights are flared out as they near the fenders, and the quad exhaust is just spread farther apart out of the center). So even if it is somewhat close to what the next-gen 3 series will look like, it definately won't have half the bulges, vents, and wide stance. Let alone the quad exhaust.

Looks really good... but I don't like those LED things on top of the light. Looks like a MB C330..
