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.

BMW F30

Hello,

I really like the pictures of the new F30 shown in the magazine "autobild". It would be great if you or someone else could state the complete link to the article at autobild.de or let me know in which issue it was released. Unfortunately I couldn't find the article in the archive.

I thank you so much for your help.

More shark-like... is that makes any sense at all.
It's not gonna look like this. It's a lame-o chop using the CS and various other BMW parts.

Ten bucks says this isn't even close.

Btw, Huckfeldt's an amateur at best. His illustrations are always just guesses. For the most part they're way off too.

Agreed. We're about two years too late for this thread though...

Shit-can the stupid f%$^ing eyelids and the silly painted bar across the front bumper and it might actually look fairly good. Right now, I'm not impressed. Then again, I hate the look of the current face lifted coupes because of the stupid front bumper and frosted plastic eyelids.

I'll stick with my '07 thanks.
