Looks like they have changed a little bit the front grills, if we look at older spyshots.

Looks like BMW ditched the sucky Continental run flats that broke your back for Pirelli's that I've actually heard good things about.

Why are they pulling a 6 series with the front end???

Loving the blue calipers.

Thumbs up

O.M.G. I have been a long time lurker but I just had to post after seeing these most recent pics. I think that this car is going to be stunning and will look quite a bit more aggressive than the current 3. Seems to me like they are perfecting the "shark" design with this model. Can't wait to see it in the flesh! This will almost certainly be my next car

I don't think those are side view cameras. They look more like unpainted PDC sensors to me. That could possibly be a new location for the PDC sensors. The cameras don't look like that. They have more of a small clear visible eyeball which is the lens. I could be wrong though.

Hopefully they don't raise the price anymore either. If you look back at the prices of a base model E46 330CI and the price of a base model E92 335i it's a huge difference. I realize they are different cars and different times but it's a pretty big gap. Regardless I'll always drive a BMW because I personally think they are some of the best cars on the road. Everyday I look forward to getting into my 135 hitting the sport button on the DCT and just driving. What other car in the price range can give you that feeling? None. I just love it. When my lease is up and I get my E90 M3 I'm sure I'll love it even more. Can't wait!

4 piston brakes, nice! Hopefully this package will be available on the 328i as well

I am really nervous about that front end. Something is not quite right. I can see a 1-Series fuck-up (albeit in smaller scale) coming :-( There is too much space between the headlights and the grill again. The grill also looks squashed and not very imposing and the headlights, I expect an ackward shape at best :-( Why BMW don't want to design beautiful cars is beyond my comprehension.

Maybe that sensor is a heat sensor?

Anyway, the 328 is my next car. Cant wait. Looks great. Im happy it looks like the F10 and not the F20!

Woot! Hopefully those cameras will help out parallel parking to avoid curb rash.

They already resolved that from 2010 and on with new brake pads. The new pads don't produce anywhere near the amount of brake dust the old ones did either.

I have Ferrodo brake pads on my 330, they squeal like hell, but when they are hot they make a fantastic WOOOOO sound. Love it!

I guess all 09 and older are SOL? Or can we get these new pads as well.

The stealershits have to take care of your squeaking, there's a SIB for it. Last I heard they were suppose to be using these new pads but I've also seen people going in and get new pads only for their brakes to start squeaking again not too long after.

Definitely NOT a mini 5, the shape is instantly recognizable as a 3 series, and it appears to be a good looking evolution. Looks amazing very low and sporty!
Take a look at the renders and now the technology the F30 3er could potentially pack and tell me it's not a smaller 5er. The shape is a 3er (though that's debatable) but everything else is very similar to the 5-Series.

Relax dude that front end is still disguised and if you look closely ull see that the area between the lights and grills is actually covered with shaped foam and tape ... The gape won't be that wide and it won't have those lines 100% sure.
