The upcoming 3-series replacement (chassis code: F30) is likely to debut in 2011 as a 2012 model. Now that the winter months are upon Europe, the car is undergoing winter testing, and has been spied on video at a local gas station.
Not much is known about the car as of yet, as the car is under heavy body cladding covered with BMWs classic psychedelic camouflage. Current thinking is that the forthcoming 3-series will continue to use styling cues … CONTINUED
Ever since the F10 was officially unveiled to the world, the F11 has had most of its camo removed, for good reason. The shape and look of the car is known at this point. What is left is for BMW to put the finishing touches to the car and finish up testing in time for the official world premier of this car, later in the year in Paris.
The look of the touring/wagon (f11) compliments the sedan version nicely and goes for the ultra modern and … CONTINUED
Joining its brethern (the 3-series and 1-series) the next generation X3 has also been caught starting its cold weather testing cycle. It seems X3 development has been slowed down a little (because of the success of the X1 as some rumors have it). As you may remember this X3 has been under development for quite a long time now, far longer then the next 1-Series and 3-Series.

We bring you the first photos of the next generation 3-series (F30) sedan beginning its cold weather testing for the first time! Although the cars body panels are fully covered by camoflage panels and paint scheme, its easy to see the cars proportions and size.

Thanks to the boys at spyshots.nl as theyve caught the new 1-series out in the cold Scandinavian testing area.
The car continues to be heavily camod but the car is now solidly in the BMW development cycle. As you may remember, the car was previously seen as a mule riding on the current 1-series body, then a camod prototype was seen driving around the streets on Munich. With more development under the cars belt, it has … CONTINUED
The new F11 aka the 5-Series touring (wagon) seen here in a basicly de-camod state reveals that the midsize BMW wagon will continue with the tried in true format now packaged under the F10 style skin.
The car is elegant as it is sporty and clearly places an emphasis on style over absolute load lugging capacity (after all, thats what the GT is for right?..).
Engine offerings should be similar to the F10 Sedan which … CONTINUED
A titanium silver F10 5-series was recently caught on the Autobahn. One of the first sightings of a production version F10 5 series in public.
Is BMW possibly testing a hydrogen hybrid 1-series? If so, it’s good to see that despite BMW’s recent introduction of its gasoline hybrid technology (as seen on the 7-series and X6 ActiveHybrids), the company continues to explore future efficient technologies.
The newest E92 3-series facelift pics showing new LED tail lights & angel eyes, and a new color which seems to be vermillion red.
The next generation 6-series convertible (F13) continues testing throughout Munich. The folding top is expected to be a hardtop. Shes sounding good!
