BMW 2012 3 Series F30 US Press Launch Video

BMW 2012 3 Series F30 US Press Launch Video

COMMENTS

As you've seen from our recent coverage, we were just in Monterey, California for the US press launch of the 2012 3 Series sedan (F30). We were given an opportunity to test all F30 lines (sport, luxury, modern), in both 328i and 335i, on the track at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, as well as the breathtaking roads of the Monterey area, including Big Sur. We've already shared with you some photos and videos, but we promise more materials, as well as a review.

This video was shot in Big Sur to represent the F30 US press launch.

Nice vid. Nice scenery. Nice music. Ok looking car.

I do like the new angel eyes & the shape of the headlights. But again, I dont like how they're too low to the ground, look like an SUV from distance.

This kinda of music is awesome for sex btw!

Sure glad it's a press video cause it sounds like an electric car. I mean it does not make a sound.

Nicely done video. The F30 looks great out there on the Cali coastal roads.

Are they trying to prove that the F30 is a slow, boring car? I almost fell asleep watching it.

Wink you got it wrong guys ...

Sometimes we just want to enjoy the beauty of the car, the esthetic of it, the fluidity of the car in its environment, those serene moments of pure bliss, that splits second of pure heaven in the chaos of it all, the peaceful silence provided by such ultimate driving machine...

And that's what these videos do: to give us that sensation, taking out all the regular engine music or mechanical sounds... just for a few minutes ... to allow us to observe the cars timeless physics.
