We’re at the LA Auto Show, where BMWNA has announced the U.S. base price for the 2012 328i and 335i sedans, as follows:

2012 328i – $35,775
2012 335i – $43,275

Compare this to the outgoing 2011 E90 sedan:
2011 328i – $34,600
2011 335i – $42,050

The base price increase over the 2011 models are just $1,175 and $1,225, which are very reasonable considering the increased standard equipment and features that the F30 3 series receive. And while option/package pricing has not yet been released, you can see the list of what will be available in the F30 Ordering Guide we recently posted.

The BMW F30 3 series will make its world official debut at the Detroit auto show (NAIAS) in January 2012.

What Car? give the new 2012 BMW 3 series a full five stars, saying that it shows just how dominant the current 3 Series is that the only car the new model has to beat is its predecessor – and that it does. In short, if you’re in the market for a compact executive, this is the one to go for. It’s a “Perfect Replacement” for the E90 as they call it.
