The 2012 BMW 3 Series coverage continues today with a new and exclusive interview. At the BMW 3 Series launch in Barcelona, our road test editor Shawn Molnar sat down with Martin Delitz to chat on the new F30 3 Series.
Before jumping into the audio interview, here is a recap for US customers. The base price of the 2012 328i Sedan is $ 34,900 and the 335i Sedan is $ 42,400.
This represents a $ 300 and $ 350 base price increases versus the outgoing model. The 3 Series now includes standards features such as 6.5” display with iDrive controller, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/iPod interface, 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, Automatic Start/Stop, Dynamic Driving Control with ECO PRO Mode, Brake Energy Regeneration, and a 1” standard wheel size increase.
The Modern Line (ZML) and Luxury Line (ZLL) will sell for an additional $ 2,100 for the 328i and $ 1,400 for the 335i model. The Sport Line (ZSL) will make you spend $ 2,500 for the 328i and $ 1,700 for 335i.
