2012 BMW 3 series illustrations
These look pretty realistic to me.
Again, the next 3 series, like all BMWS, will be an evolution of the current design. That’s how they like it.
The only big news will be the availability of a hatchback with the GT version.

I hope that they will be prudent enough to increase its size in both directions. It is kind of ridiculous to pay $50k for a compact, and I do not care how great it handles. For starters, make its length at least 185". Also, the badge effect to wannabes, " I have a Bimmer too" is wearing off, and with great models coming out from Cadillac, Infiniti, etc, the price should be more competitive.
Looks like a Hyundai Sonata in the back. Go back to the drawing board. Don't want to see that on a BMW.
Not sure about the rear, but I like the design overall. Unlike the first post, I do not want the 3 series to grow in size. If you want to spend 50k on the largest car you can find, buy a used Land Cruiser or Escalade or some other land barge. But if you want the best car, size really doesn't have anything to do with it.
Just add a few more wiskers to the lower bumper and you've got a really cute cat face. Never loved the current 3 series 4 door and this won't change things for me.

I've always thought the vertical lines in the BMW grille looked like nose hairs in a very old fat man. Cars shouldn't have snouts!

Are you a car enthusiast or a Honda marketer? 🙂 Increasing the size of the 3 series is about the last thing it needs in order to stay competitive!
There is a "good snout" on cars and a "bad snout." This is a baaaaad snout. Looks like a pissed off pig.
Thosee exhaust pipes thru the rear bumper are soooo cheap looking.
