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
Here are the latest photos of the F30 3-series that has been spending its time working hard in snow/winter testing. This car was previously caught on video leaving a gas station and now we can see the car in deep snow. If you havent seen it, here is Miis wonderful detailed evaluation of the F30 body based on the spyshots available so far. And now, onto the new pictures…
We believe this to be an F30 3-series in testing, though Autocar claims it as a F30 body on top of the future 3-series GT’s mechanicals. According to them:
It seems unreal to us that the F30 is out on the roads testing already, but here it is again! A quick eyed reader of AutoWeek.nl snapped up two photos of the car on the highway while in Germany! Not much new is seen with the car when compared to the earlier spypics.
What is known just from the shape so far is that the car will retain the basic proportions of the E90 however with … CONTINUED
This F30 bodyline tracing and comparison images (based on recent spyshot) show us what the F30 3-series may look like and how it compares to the E90 & E46.
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
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.
* Note: neither the orange turn signal on the side mirrors nor the front and rear lights are headed for production. The orange turn signal has been there on all recent BMW test mules … CONTINUED
Members are already discussing what they would like to see on the F30 3-series (now only 2 years away). What’s your thoughts?
We bring you the first video of the 2012 F30 3-series captured in motion on the streets of Munich.
The next generation F30 3-series was just spotted in live testing for the first time, on the streets of Munich. The previous set of photos featured the car on a flatbed truck.
Here’s the world’s first look at the 2012 BMW 3-series (F30 / F35)! We didn’t expect test mules this early, but let the strip tease begin!
Incredibly, test mules of the next gen 3-series (F30 / F35) will be spotted perhaps within the next year. So, what’s your wish list for the next 3?
Inside is some new insight and information from Scott26/27 regarding the next generation 3-series’ design and entire 3-series product line.

The 2012 (F30) 3-series test mule has been spotted yet again. An E90 shell sits atop the F30′s widened track for now. The new generation 3-series is expected in 2012.

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)
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
