Taking a page out of their multi-lines strategy for the F20 1-series hatchback (which has the Sport and Urban Lines), the F30 and F32 3 series will also be available in multiple "lines" options.

The 3 lines expected for the next gen 3 series sedan (and perhaps "4 series coupe" if the name change comes to fruition) will be a Sport Line, Modern Line, and Luxury Line (actual final names may differ, we've also heard Sport Line, Urban Line and Deluxe Line mentioned as the possible names).

These optional lines will feature differentiated preset looks via unique trimmings and equipment. Besides the usual options and packages BMWs can be configured with, this allows BMW to offer even more individuality and uniqueness between the same models. These lines should not be offered to the exclusion of the traditional M-sport package or potential Performance Edition (which the recently spied F20 1-series performance edition possibly hints at).

How will the 3 lines differ? No solid details yet, but we assume they will feature different aspects such as wheels, mirror covers, interior trims, exterior trims and accents and/or keyfobs. Performance differences may also not be out of the question.

It's possible that we've already seen at least 2 of these 3 lines in the recent F30 3 series spy photos. Pressed to guess, we would assume that the sparkling bronze F30 (the main car featured in the pics) may be the modern line and the dark blue F30 to be the luxury line (with its chrome trims).

We expect a F30 3 series sedan unveiling in 2-4 months time, so we'll have more details soon!

* The keyfob picture above is from the F20 1 series Sport Line model

Actually in various markets - BMW have additional equipment lines for each model and have done for quite some time. The UK for example offers ES and SE lines for the 1er and 3er .

Not sure how i feel about this, especially if you can't break the "lines" down for individual options.

This center console storage is just a place where you can keep your key. Any new BMW model has a keyless start system standard, so you can start the engine with the key being in your pocket or (as pictured) stored somewhere in the car.

Will these be "options" or "packages" to add to the model or will these be 3 different models? I don't get why they don't just leave it as 323, 328, 335 and then limit the options you can get for each trim. BMW is trying to change things up but it's overwhelming with the addition of new models and now these names...

Yep, they're optional packages. You can still get a basic car without these, your choice regarding colors/trims is limited then tho.
