The F30 3-series is shaping up to the be safest 3-series yet. From the latest set of F30 spy photos, we have now spotted side view cameras, which will likely be part of a camera package which also includes top and rear view parking cameras. From previous interior spy photos we’ve also spotted the lane change warning system. All will combine to provide safety features which have never before been seen in the 3-series!

We’ve posted plenty of F30 spy photos and videos, but this is a first — a F30 335i with blue front brake calipers. Despite their color, the brakes on this prototype don’t appear to be larger or a special design compared to other F30 335i prototypes, so it could be cosmetic only (perhaps as part of a special package). BMW does seem to have an affinity for blue brakes recently, as seen on the F10 M5. Or, these brakes could be for testing purposes only.

Also seen … CONTINUED

First pictures of the Chinese Market BMW 3er Li. Like the BMW 5-series, the new BMW 3-series for the Chinese market will inherit an extended wheelbase model. Extra length in the rear will be a boon to Chinese customers in this segment where the car will face off with the Audi A4L. With BMW adding a 3-series Li, expect Mercedes-Benz to add a C-Klasse L when the next generation arrives.

Like all new F30′s for the Chinese market The 3erLi will be manufactured in China.

More photos of the 2012 335i from a recent testing session at the Nurburgring. The new photos continue to showcase the F30′s excellent stance and proportions, especially as it hunkers down around the turns.

The F30 3-series sedan will begin production in November 2011, shortly after the E90 3-series stops production. The F30 2012 Model Year will run until June 2012, upon which point it will switch to the 2013 Model Year.

F30 sales are expected to begin in Europe around the time of … CONTINUED

FEP F30 3-series prototypes are now running abound throughout Germany. This is the first sighting of a titanium silver F30 which was seen cruising on the Autobahn. As always, the F30 is looking great in motion and out in a real world environment with its great proportions and stance, short overhangs, and large wheels which fit the car’s size nicely.

The F30 3-series sedan will be revealed for the first time in the Fall and the first models introduced will be 328i and 335i models. They will … CONTINUED

BMW’s research and development head, Klaus Draeger, has confirmed that future BMWs will indeed utilize new turbocharged 3-cylinder gas and diesel engines. This begs the question which future models will receive these 3 cylinder motors. According to Draeger (via Autocar), the upcoming FWD 1-series models will receive the 1.5L turbo 3-cylinder and not the F30 3-series (at least not initially?)

“They are not a priority for the 3-series,” Draeger told Autocar last week. “We’ll start with the front-wheel drive architecture and more price-sensitive models.”

Instead, the smallest engine … CONTINUED

We bring you the first ever live action look at the F30 335i testing on the Nurburgring.  Without lap times it’s difficult to know exactly how well it handles the famed track, but the mule seems to zip around the track with great composure, little roll, and good speed. Check out the full video inside.

It’s been months since the F30 sedan has been spotted testing on the Nurburgring, but this F30 335i sedan was just spotted today making testing runs on the ring. This is the first space gray F30 prototype to be spied.

The last time the F30 was on the Nurburgring, it was in much heavier camouflage, but now appears in the latest level of camouflage and with premium wheels, first seen on the recent white F30 photos.

The F30 3-series sedan will begin production in November 2011, shortly after … CONTINUED

The next generation BMW 3-Series sedan is only months away from full reveal, and in typical BMW fashion the camo striptease continues during vehicle testing.

The overall level of camo on the cars appears to remain the same as previous photos demonstrated, however with better lighting and angles, a more realistic picure of the F30 appears before our eyes. The true “mini F10″ look of the car is much more obvious, especially when looking at the headline photo. That is to say a mini F10 5-Series with … CONTINUED

You typically don’t see manufacturers testing vehicles in Manhattan, but a BIMMERPOST member spotted the new F30 testing in the big apple. The vehicle does seem to be wearing California license plates, suggesting a long road trip as part of the evaluation phase.

We bring you a realistic look at the upcoming 2012 3-series F30 sedan’s rear view, revealed by reference to real life spy photos and using our talented artists’ skills. What’s revealed is a not-revolutionary, yet stately and handsome rear.

The F30 3 series will feature rear tail lights in the classic L-shape, lit by LED light bars. The trunk will feature a very slight integrated bill, toned down from the E90 3-series’ more aggressive trunk bill. All F30 3-series have been spotted with the same rear lower … CONTINUED

BMW F30 3-series continues testing and a black test mule was recently photographed. This prototype wears the same camouflage level as the recently spotted F30 sedans, but its black paint set against the camouflage tape shows off the car’s lines better than a lighter color.

Squared off LED halos adorn the front headlights on this particular model, and overall the front headlights look to have a stylish and aggressive shape, as on the F10 5-series. Low and wide kidney grilles sit at the front at a sleek … CONTINUED
