2012 BMW 3 series F30 Modern Line spotted at Schiphol Airport

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi guys,

Saw this pictures on a dutch website autoblog.nl

F30 spotted at Schiphol airport in the Netherlands. This is a Modern Line F30 model (details).

And I think its an US version because of the ugly reflectors.

Here's what Modern Line F30 comes with:

Exterior
  • 17" light-alloy wheels, V-spoke styling 413, or
  • 18" light-alloy wheels, turbine styling 415 (standard on 328i and 335i)
  • Front and rear bumpers with specific features in Aluminium, satinated
  • BMW kidney grille with 11 slats in Aluminium, satinated
  • B-pillar and window uprights in Black, high-gloss
  • “Modern” lettering along the side
  • Tailpipe in Aluminium, satinate

Interior
  • Door sill finishers in aluminium with “BMW Modern” lettering
  • Sport leather steering wheel in Oyster dark
  • Instrument panel top in Oyster dark
  • Instrument cluster in Oyster and with Chrono scales
  • Interior illumination with variable colour effects in Orange-Red or White – selected via the iDrive Controller (with additional light source on the B-pillar)
  • Chrome trim on air conditioning and radio controls
  • Vehicle key in Oyster dark with chrome trim

It says "Werkstestwagen" on the back. Are all cars to be delivered called "test wagon" at first?

Wunderful car

Looks nice on the outside...i was going to order a 328i sedan sportline, so it would probably look very similar on the outside. Also, those dont look like the xeon headlights...i wonder if the non-xeon headlights have the glow rings?

Interior obviously would look different with the sportline.

Modern Line with Sports line wheels. Interior is really hideous in that color.

I'm surprised that no one spotted the dent on the body crease between the fuel filler door and the rear pass side door handle.

I'm still not feeling the head light. Other than that it's an evolution in design. Interior would be better in a different color combo.

I think it is mostly the angle of that photo that makes them seem slightly out of place.

I really like those wheels, I think they'd look great on an E90.

I thought it was a Z4 from the homepage picture. Personally, I'm not feeling the wood trim/texture - too overstated and From the picture it looks cheap. Maybe in person it might look different but from the pictures, looks cheap. I'll still take a 335 Luxury Line.

I LOVE that thing! I hope it's just not a coincidence that the angles were nice or something because I hope it really looks like that in real life when I see them on the road and hopefully in my driveway. Some cars look amazing in certain pictures, but turn out to just look mediocre in the flesh and have the presence of a fly.

The hood made it look like a Z4 and the rear looks like a 5 series...Not feeling it at all...
