We bring you the first video of the F30 / F31 3-series Touring prototype on the streets of Germany. Most of the car is still clad in heavy camouflage, but as with the F30 sedan spy photos so far, shape, size, and proportions can be gleamed from these early spy photos/videos.
According to our BMW Roadmap, the next generation 3-series sedan and touring are expected sometime in 2012. Several variants are expected of the next gen 3-series, including sedan, … CONTINUED
Some new photos of the 2012 F30 3-series, spied testing in the German countryside. Not a whole lot new is gleamed from these photos, but it’s always good to see the F30 continue its testing. Based on the info we’ve heard, the F30 sedan may debut at the 2012 Geneva autoshow.
We recently brought you PHOTOS of the next gen F30 3-series testing at the Nurburgring. We now bring you the best F30 3-series video yet, both in testing on the Ring and driving in public. The next F30 3-series is expected to debut in 2012.
We bring you the worlds first look at the next generation F30 3-series sedans interior! The interior looks to be a big departure from the E90/E92 interior – the dash seems to be more driver-centric and also becomes less upright, with a very smoothly integrated screen unit. Overall the look reminds us more of the current 1-series than the newer BMWs (F10 5-series, F01 7-series), especially the trim area.

Watching BMW’s strip tease of its upcoming vehicles is always fun, especially when its the next 3-series (F30), and even more especially when the testing advances stages. In this case, the 2012 3-series has moved on to track testing on the Nurburgring! Which signals that we should hopefully see some of that body cladding start to come off.
We can also start to peek at the front bumper underneath the heavy camoflage bodysuit in one of the photos below.
The F31 2012 3-series touring variant of the next generation 3-series has now been spotted for the first time! Although not much of the cars details are yet revealed, the overall shape and proportions are very attractive, much like those of the stunning F11 5-series touring.
The 2012 F31 3-series touring has been spotted! The picture comes from the Autocar magazine. The F31 BMW 3 series Touring is expected to follow after the Geneva 2012 launch of the F30 3-series sedan by possibly following the route taken with the 5er Touring (F11) And debuting in it’s home market, Germany @ Leipzig a month later. The 3-series sedan debuts in November 2011. The 3er Touring (F31) will also follow the same pattern as the (F11) and not be introduced in … CONTINUED
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.
Nothing new in these pictures compared to the already seen F30 spy photos, but new photos always means new angles and perspectives, so we thought we’d post these up.
We recently brought you photos of the F30 3-series during winter testing, and here is a video of an F30 out making its round in the snow and cold. Seeing it in motion and from different distances really gives a great perspective into its shape and proportions (which looks great). The little bit of exhaust note we can hear also sounds pretty aggressive.

Here is the latest artistic impression of the F30 from Germanys AutoBild magazine. As you can see this impression is highly BMW CS Concept car influenced.
After looking at these pictures, Scott26 had this to say:
That broken rear shoulder line actually has its roots in BMW history too most recently it was revived on the CS Concept Car. … CONTINUED
