The newly-redesigned 2012 BMW 3 Series was caught by someone quick with their camera while strutting about town completely undisguised well ahead of its expected unveiling later this year.
As we would expect, the 2012 3 Series looks like it's getting a lot of the same design themes as the new 2011 5 Series. The resemblance is especially strong in the rear end, the elongated crease lines in the hood and a similarly strong cut line along the sides. It's so much that we're wondering if we should just call the new 3 Series, "Mini Me."
Hat tip to everyone who sent this one in!
