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 shorter front and rear overhangs, which combined with the more bulbous wheel arches should give this car a very sveltte and modern appeal.
Stay tuned for more in the coming months!

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 from the BMW CS concept car. Many of those same styling cues have so far been translated to the latest iteration of the BMW Z4, 7-Series and 5-Series.
What is known is that this … 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 and the front and rear round lights are there merely for testing purposes. The real headlights and tail lights are completely covered underneath the cladding.
So far, info points to the F30 3-series sedan as making … CONTINUED
