The Car Connection
Not for the U.S., but rapidly gaining for Europe.

These photos show BMW's new 3-Series Compact, featuring a dedicated sports package developed and designed by the acclaimed M division.
The special exterior features include: a dedicated deeper front skirt with larger air intakes, circular fog lights in the front skirt, sculpted sill extensions, a dedicated deeper rear skirt emulating the front skirt design, chromed exhaust pipes, a set of uniquely styled multi-spoke wheels shod with ultra-low-profile tires, and a lowered suspension.
Inside, expect sports seats, upholstery trims with two-tone color schemes and M logos in the main dials, on the steering wheel and the gearshift lever. This prototype might have the 3.0-litrer engine from the 330i.
