Surprisingly, the camouflage is nearly gone and the BMW 3-Series is getting ready for its mid-cycle facelift. As is easily seen, the front fascia will be slightly re-designed with a new bumper, modified fog lights a new and sculpted hood, and new grille. The chrome "eyebrows" above the grille are now gone.

In the back, we'll be seeing new taillights, and we also expect an updated cabin and - as our sources in Germany are claiming - cleaner-running engines.

The update will also bring the launch of the twin-turbocharged 335i Wagon. Although the wagon is the only body style BMW doesn't offer the M3 package on, it appears as though those craving cargo room and performance won't have to wait much longer.
