• BMW F30 3 series design leaked early?

      You should know by now the 2012 3 series is coming and that it will be referred to as the F30 generation. A lot of speculation has been taking place on how the car will look which is not really all that big of a surprise. What is a surprise is it would seem the design has now leaked out. Someone managed to snap some photos of the car basically completely undisguised and in its final form. Not the best pictures ever but they clearly show the 3 is taking styling cues from the 5 meaning subdued and restrained evolution.

        Not a whole lot different than the 5, I'm sure over all it will just be a smaller more compact version.

        It's a smaller 5 series, but I like it. It look more muscular and aggressive than the current gen, bring on the coupe version.

        Looks like a smaller F10, but I always thought the F10 looked like a big e90...

        Unfortunately, that seems to be where the design is headed.
