F30 2012 3 Series Sedan World Premier thread

Athleticism is inbred in the new BMW 3 Series. Those looking for even greater dynamic character will find just what they require in the M Sport package, including many extra equipment items. Discover its benefits – from the third quarter of 2012 at your BMW Dealer’s.



The M Sport package with its innovative equipment features is based on the athleticism of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan with Sport Line and turns to the BMW M3 for its appearance. One constituent is the M Sport suspension lowered by ten millimetres with stiffer spring and damper settings as well as harder stabilisers.



Its dynamic character is emphasised by the exclusive M Sport body colour of Estoril Blue metallic, a special aerodynamics package with numerous body components, chromium exhaust pipe finishers, modified suspension settings and M Sport light-alloy wheels with a diameter of 18 or 19 inches. Front and rear bumpers, sill covers in body colour and a striking diffusor insert in Dark Shadow Metallic on the tail underline the sporting character of the M Sport package, exploiting its visual effect to the full.



On the inside, the M Sport package includes the M leather steering wheel with multifunction including short-shifter gear lever (for manual transmission) in soft leather nappa with M emblem and sports seats. The seat covers are in a characteristic fabric-Alcantara design. In addition, there are three further leather finishes. The decorative surface is designed in Aluminium Hexagon with blue accent trim strip. The M emblem decorates the entry sill and footrest. The M Sport package – made-to-measure ingredients for true sports enthusiasts.

Does the rear bumper look any different than the stock F30? The front looks way too busy IMO.

Overall I do think it is going to be a winner for BMW. There is a ton of new technology on the car for the average driver....but the real question is how it drives for an enthusiast. How does it handle the twisties? February 11, 2012 isn't that far away to find out really!

Not bad, they should've redesigned the front grilles, pretty plain, with some depth.

Interior hasnt changed that much they just cant come up with a new radio and all tha stuff, come on guys. Still has same side window line as e46, too many hood lines. /260 km/hr,

My E46 330i can still pass for design, still keeping up with the 2012. Best grill design is on facelift sedans (330) i think.

alot of pics here.. http://www.netcarshow.com/bmw/2012-3-series/06.htm

Nice change overall!

anyone else realize that in order to take the kidneys out, the front bumper cover has to come off?

and since the side marker is now in the mirror, whats the badge on the side fender? the trim line? thats a little gross.

I see they are slowly going back to their roots. The sport wheel greatly resembles the E30 sport wheel. Although I'm unsure of how much I like the look. I like the other sport wheels better, like on the 5-series.

The kidney grilles are too spaced apart. I don't like them. I can't wait to see how the coupe turns out; the sedan is very aggressive looking.
