Is it just me, but proportionally it doesn't look THAT far off from the current design outside of the bigger front nose. I wonder if the hood like with meet the front grille or if it will protrude out like the 5 series. I really don't like that. I'm debating on ordering now or waiting it out. I hear the engine for the 335 will be basically the same but tuned a bit differently.
Ah.. decisions decisions.

Hmmm... those 18's aren't staggered. Makes me wonder if these are the non-sport wheels.

It always makes me curious... when these guys pull over to take a break somewhere and leave their car in the parking lot... how has no one ever run over and rip off the camo as fast as they could and snap pics? LOL

I can't recall seeing these rims on a prototype F 30 before...I wonder if they are 18's or 19's.
bravo! nice shots
i spotted this exact car down at the emissions plant...

to the OP...
it sounded to me, like a diesel...what about you? how did it sound?


and that 458 is

i noticed the exact same thing...335 non sport pkg?

these cars come from the emissions testing facility and my guess is that they are mostly testing for emissions stuff

This may be the first time ever, where a person in a Ferrari was snapping photos of a lowly BMW.

18" would look very small on an F30 as they also look to small on an E90.

Must be 19" and I guess on 225/40 and 255/35 tyres?

Good job. Man- that high, bolbous hoodline needed for Euro pedestrian impact safety looks awful, as does the protruding grille.

From the A-piller back, it looks about like an E90 except with the chine down the side running below the door handles instead of through them. It's a bit hard to tell with the camo though. It might be a bit more slab-sided.

I think the E90 will be popuular for a long time. The front has a cleaner look, not styled by european governments, and the sides and back aren't that different, meaning it won't look dated for a long time.

Hopefully some non-ugly aftermarket hoods and grilles will be available for the F30.

You guys must have really been moving...seems like a-lot of body roll on the 3. Especially on the relatively low levels of grip with the narrow tires on the test mule.

Love how the 458 was chasing the prototype. Also love the smug look of the test driver in one of the pics.

The Ferrari is simply the most beautiful car I've ever seen.

I am on my iPhone, can you zoom into the rear lower quarter panel and see if there is any outline of a DEF door?

Absolutely! It looks like they're trying pretty hard to get away, but it's pointless, The look on their faces is kind of like some of the pumped up dudes that think I'm trying to race them from stoplights in my 335 when I'm just driving normally and not even trying to accelerate hard... 458 v. 335, why try?
