One other thing I noticed with these newest pictures, is that the front (and rear?) brakes seems smaller than on that mule first spotted in Nov. '09.

I'm think both sets of wheels are 17". What do you guys think?

Style 284 has thinner spokes, with alternating ones that don't reach all the way out to the edge of the rim. These are different.

good eye, i didn't notice that at first...It's the Ring Taxi, a driver will take up to four people along on a lap around the ring at high speed. It's something I've always wanted to do

Looking Audi A4 ish dimensionally... longer and a bit wider than the E90. Not a bad thing imo - A4's the perfect size for a family of four yet not too a 'big' a car for solo commuting.

Lets hope BMW keeps the weight down.

It's by far the most popular engine and most of 3's made are 4 cylinder diesels.

Mostly likely a 335d or possibly 323d/325d with twin-turbo 4-cylinder. Doubt they'd test the N54 in the F30, more likely to use N55.

Oh yes and coming your way. US will see F30's with turbo 4-cylinders in entry models. Turbo I4's will be used in the replacement for E90 I6 328i.

does it really look larger? man i hope not. i want more interior room via better design, but no increased exterior dimensions... esp. length due to front/rear overhangs.

Me neither. The new bi-color paint option ("Zebra Whack") is going to cost 2x more I'm sure

And the Test Mule Aerodynamic Package Kit won't be cheap either.

Im not a fan of the big bimmerpost.com stickers in the windows either, seems tacky for a production vehicle....

That's why they make so many different 3s. The US market only gets a few different ones though.

My 330i is a rather quick car - especially since I added a 3.64 rear end. It's so good though that even with 100 less horsepower it would still be entertaining and satisfying to drive.

It was definately a 4 cylinder diesel, but only by the sound I couldn't tell how many turbos it had, of course.

Ah yes, its not easy to see but it does one pipe. Well spotted! Also note the brake disc's are small'ish. Its a 4 cyliner I think! One or two turbos is the queston?
