Ladies and gentlemen, the replacement for BMW's best seller is now among us. Maybe the BMW 1 series with its angry bird face made more than one opinion inside Bimmer fans. But with the 3 series, the Bayerisch automaker had to do things right (we're talking about styling here). Now let's face it: BMWs are becoming bigger and bigger, but in this particular case, the new BMW 3-series has also become lighter. So it can only be a good thing, knowing that BMWs will always be terrific to drive.

After seeing the new 3 series, we couldn't be more excited to know what the new M3 will look like. BMW is cooking a very diffrent beast for us, the next gen M3 will be powered by a twin-turbo (possibly triple-turbo) V6. That means it will at least have the same amount of power as the current model but with a lighter body!

Talking about engines, the new 328i now has a twin-turbocharged four cylinder instead of the 3.0-Liter inline-six. BMW says the new engine is more, powerful, more efficient and allows a 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds! As for the 335i, it is powered by a single-turbo inline-six producing 300 Hp.

With the new F80, the customer will have the choice between four styling variants in addition to the standard version: the Modern Line, Luxury Line, Sport Line and the M Sport Package. An active Hybrid version version is coming next fall.

Let's take a loot at the styling elements from each variant:
