Arrow New BMW F30 3-series Spyshots, Including Production Interior

We previously posted spy photos of the F30's interior which was a dummy interior from the 1-series, but the F30 mules have now been fitted with production form interiors. Visible now is the steering wheel, entire driver console - including tach and speedometer, as well as parts of the center console and interior door. Exterior-wise, the same camouflage remains as in previous F30 sightings.

Compared to the E90 3-series, the F30 will feature a longer wheelbase, but shorter shorter overhangs, for a sporty squat look. It will also have wider and lower kidney grilles. Engine options will include a full range of turbo and naturally aspirated 6-cylinder motors, 4-cylinder motors, and possibly even a new 3-cylinder motor. The F30 335i will again be powered by a turbo 6 cylinder motor.

The F30 3-series sedan will make its world public debut at the 2012 Geneva Autoshow in March of 2012. The F32 coupe will be unveiled a year later in 2013.

Steering wheel looks identical to the new X3
I really hope all 3 series will have audio/nav screen like the X3 does, regardless of whether they have nav or not

I have a strange feeling that front bumper might turn out ugly.

Don't forget this is just a mule - hopefully there will be something other than a void on the production model!

Hope so. I just lost faith after seeing how they put cup holders near that spot on the new X3. Not a fan.

No that'll be somewhere on the center console where the iDrive and shifter are. That button is to turn off auto start-stop.

Actually, after a closer read of the blurb, I'm pretty sure the only production bit is the dials and gauges - that central console is clearly from the 1 Series parts bin and not for the F30 - look at those airvents - it definitely says mule to me. Still, the dials look nice - and perhaps BMW is leaving the trademark red/orange illumination behind - the digital readouts definitely look white-on-black to me.

That should be the efficient dynamics on/off button; when the car is stopped the engine turns off, when you hit the gas pedal it fires back up.

I don't think they will ever depart from their orange interior lighting scheme; they did research [long ago..] on finding a good interior lighting color that is calming and doesn't create a visual distraction for the driver.

Didn't look like they will be going back to the center window controls. Bummer.

Interesting... obviously moving towards the current 5/7er series dashboard. Not a big fan of the centre console... but agreed that it could still be in mule form because of the makeshift switches at the base... will find out soon enough I'm sure!

+1!!

Don't like how the 2 center gauges look though... they are sticking out at the bottom in a cut form? :s really hope they glue that back together lol. More blackpanel tech style

True! But the current ones look white aswell under the correct lighting (i.e. still visible under direct sunlight). Don't think the orange is ever going away, atleast, I hope not

I really hope that center bin is not the production style, and still the 1-series parts we're looking at, like what one member already suggested. The shape of the center stack is starting to look too much like a entry-level-japanese-car-interior like.
