Auto Motor Und Sport has put together speculative images of the 2012 F30 3-series and upcoming 3-series PAS using elements from BMW’s latest offerings (7-series, Z4 and 5-series GT)
Here we have it folks! There are the first photographed pictures of the BMW E92 facelift. Looks like it will actually be a very minor facelift, bumpers only, which is good news for current E92 owners!
These are purported to be pics of a very early test mule for the next generation BMW 3-series (F30). If true, the modifications to an E90 body are likely for chassis testing only, but hint that the F30 3-series will have a wider (and perhaps longer) wheelbase. Expect the actual final sheet metal to be different, of course. The F30 3-series is expected in 2012.
And please, please dont make posts such as “its hideous.” If this is truly a test mule, its only undergoing chassis testing and what you see … CONTINUED

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 … CONTINUED
Motorauthority has released this presumably pshop of what the E90 facelift will look like, but it looks pretty damn accurate to the real car to me based on the spy shots we have already seen. Looks like the perfect facelift, not to major of a change, but still good looking.

An upcoming crossover variant based off of the 3-series has been caught testing again. Its current form is that of a E91 touring body on a raised suspension platform (probably just for testing drivetrain/suspension/etc..), which will no doubt be replaced eventually by the crossovers actual body shell.
