Looks good, definitely a resemblance to the new 5 series.. the rear quarters flare quite nicely!

The turn signals under the headlights will be available exclusively on the Coupe and Cabrio models.


COOL - as a coupe fan, those were just the right words i wanted to hear

thats reinstated my willingness to wait another yr haha, cant wait to see some interior shots

thanks again Scott

Looks too big and I'll bet it will have all these electrified thingies like EPS and "Adaptive Drive" and other crap like this which will be improperly calibrated (or calibrated to be way too "comfortable" and "fuel-efficient" even if it will sacrifice the rest of the qualities) at the beginning of the sales and it will take BMW many months (years?) and many software patches to "get it right"... Hopefully the current E90's will still be available for order when I'll be turning in my current lease next year, otherwise I will be looking at something else.

Looks great. With these design features the coupe is going to be a real head turner

just wait, put sport pack on in or m pack and the car will be drool stud just like e36, e46, e90 was.

I hope BMW won't screw up the steering feel like in f10. A little conservative but elegant - I like it.

Checkmate for BMW

wow already?
not too far off from current e90

f10 looks like stretched e90 with updated headlight and tails
this new f30 look like f30 meets e90.. (if that event makes sense...

glad they are going with squared off angel eyes.. can't wait to see what the updated headlights for f10 will look like and x6

I didn't get all that excited when I saw the pic, it does look like a mini 5 series. Not bad though.

I wonder what they've done to the interior.

I just hope the don't ruin it with the interior. I want something similar to the 5 and 7. If they do that, they're going to have an all-time bestseller.

not too crazy so far... looks a lot like e90 and while I can see some evolution, the hood lines are gone (they are there on the new 5 though an I love them) and the non-xenon lights are still there (one of the pics shows no angel rings and halogen headlights). also, mirrors look ugly...
and yet I am excited to see the reveal of the final look... one thing for sure, e90 will not look too dated when f30 is released which is a good thing... and if i dont 100% like f30, i can wait for f30 LCI while in my e90.....

Agree about the tail pipes. I am excited to see the car without the camo. I have to admit, sadly, that at one point while looking at these photos, I was faced with a grim thought that one of the photos looked like a Honda Accord. I am SURE that the camo had a lot to do with it. Can't wait!!!

Specifically bmw-F30c.jpg and bmw-F30d.jpg
