found them on bmwinfo.com
it looks to me that the headlights on the spy car don't look like the computer generated headlights.

The car is not expected before at least 2005 but spy shots are allready available ... there are no details known at this moment.
The computer pictures below show how the car could look like ...

08-22-2003, 07:26 PM

i dont like it, its ugly, like the e46 better..........much MUCH better

I'm sorry but that car looks nasty!!

08-22-2003, 10:12 PM
I think it looks fine. I wish they would join the grill and the hood together as one though, like on the e46's.
I think people on here tend to forget that you can't judge the look of a car from it's spy pics. Most of the time the headlights, tail lights, mirrors, wheels, and body panels are covered up with faux ones. It's meant to hide what the car really looks like so competitors don't steal ideas before they're on the market floor.
The tail lights shown in these pics are NOT the real ones beneath :)

The fronts not to bad, but i hope they keep working on it, cause it still needs some polishing....i don't want to have to buy it and put a kit on the next day

The Touring version picture look alot like the B6 A4 Avants...

Here is the picture


The rear almost looks identical... I think the computer was trying to generate and Audi, but it ****ed up :P

The top 3 pics have no emblems....hopefully that won't be the next 3 series cause that is Fugly...IMO

Stop making the new 3 look ugly in Yourt mentality, cos when the real new 3 comes YOu will automaticly think it's ugly. and btw this hatred to Chris Bangle might be overated, ...ot maybe not because he is taking away some of BMW's classic lines, but after getting used to the new 7, his works are looking pretty good to me, like the new 6, the 5 maybe a little twisty but nice, and other computer generated models looks promising, I cant wait to see the M6

I think BMW should go back to thier square box roots everything is getting to round and looks to much a like
