Official press release from BMW for the new facelifted BMW 3-Series. It is the epitome of sporty flair in its segment and for years it has maintained the leading position as the mostly widely sold premium vehicle in the world.

BMW is in the midst of its final testing for the U.S.-spec 335d–the first diesel-powered Bimmer to be sold in North America. The introduction of the 335d will coincide with the launch of facelifted sheetmetal destined for the entire 3-series lineup.
Due to e-mission restrictions, the U.S. version of the 335d will reportedly be down on power from its European cousin (265 hp and 425 lb-ft of torque vs. 282 hp and 428 lb-ft.), but even our U.S. numbers–especially the fat torque number–promise terrific performance that may well be enough convince people to make the move to diesel.

With the new world color of the C-Class in white its only a matter of time.
As I ordered the car in black I thought that foiling it with 3M shiny white tape would not also look really sexy, but will also protect my paint at least for 3-4 years.
If I would ever get bored of the color I can still go for grey etc…
I am thinking of buying the M6 replica wheels as I guess they are most beautiful wheels … CONTINUED
