Best F30 3-series Sedan Renders Yet, Based On Latest Spyshots

We bring you what we believe are the most realistic F30 3-series sedan renders yet, based directly off the latest and most revealing F30 spy photos [seen here].

The F30 sedan adopts BMW's current design language, with a sleeker sloping hood with more upright and widened kidney grilles placed below the hood line. The entire front fascia is more front leaning and shark-like. The F30 features double side character lines, as seen in the render. The side view mirrors will feature turn signals, like the just revealed F20 1-series hatchback. A close exam of recent spy photos also reveal double hood lines, as seen in the renders. The headlights are aggressively shaped, and the xenon headlights should feature squared-off LED angel eyes.

Size-wise, the F30 runs on a longer wheelbase and wider track than the current E90 sedan, but with shorter overhangs. It's been suggested before that the F30 is approximately 2 inches longer than the E90. Overall it's a very handsome and modern evolution of the current 3-series sedan.

You can clearly see two grooves on the protos hood, whereas in the render you can't.

That's just black tape you're seeing as grooves.

For some reason when I stare at the hood, the face looks kinda distorted. Anyway, I hope BMW doesn't increase the price too high for the newer generation. I have no idea why the 135i surged from 35-36k to 40k with destination charge. It's insane. Just because models are new shouldn't make them much more expensive.

headlights look too small in proportion to the rest - but more importantly, i'd like to see the rear as well. the rear was weak on E90.

If it ends up looking like this, BMW is f*cked

So bland. Not aggressive at all. DO NOT WANT.

it'll grow on you. i hated the look of the e90 when it first came out, now I think its one of the nicest sedans.

However, those mirrors are ridiculous, its twice the cars size

Looks fantastic! Most likely render I've seen, great work.

Added the wheels in the spyshot and removed the empty bit in the front bumper:

Hood line above emblem and between lights looks a little awkward to me.

Other than that, I like it.

the headlights are too small at 3 series(f30), and to 1 series(f20) is too big, the perfect size is on the 5 series f10

The only car I like from the current BMW design team is F10 series... and thats about it.
I hope this F30 could turn around some people within the BMW community.

Honestly, never really liked the new 7 series, the new X3s and now the F20.

politically correct...the car is meant to be formal and as formal could get pretty, the car looks nice. The coupe or the 4 series upon rumors are my hopes...but this car would generate a lot of cash for the company. Adrian these words are for you: The professional marketing strategies that you have brought to the designs have been breaking my heart. Your last disastrous 1 series and ruining our entry level sports sedan by transforming it to a plain bagel...whats next baby?? give us something good

You mine as well buy a Honda accord & save the dough. I really hope this isn't what the new 3 series looks like
