Although not revealing much more that’s new, the 2012/2013 F30 3-series sedan test mules continue their testing around Munich, Germany and spy photographers continue their pursuit and recording. We hope to see the F30 lose some of its camoflage suit soon. Video courtesy of spyshots.nl.
Here is the first reported 335is spotted in public, near BMWNA HQ in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. The member who spotted this car described the exhaust as sounding great and the car looking better in person than any photos.

We believe this to be an F30 3-series in testing, though Autocar claims it as a F30 body on top of the future 3-series GT’s mechanicals. According to them:
It seems unreal to us that the F30 is out on the roads testing already, but here it is again! A quick eyed reader of AutoWeek.nl snapped up two photos of the car on the highway while in Germany! Not much new is seen with the car when compared to the earlier spypics.
What is known just from the shape so far is that the car will retain the basic proportions of the E90 however with … CONTINUED
