Tuesday, August 5, 2008: Today, German automobile manufacturer BMW revealed the completely redesigned compact sedan, the iconic 3-Series. Being the most popular of all the luxury four-doors that the German brand has to offer, the all-new model sports well-incorporated styling cues from its biggest brother, the 7-Series, especially in the front, where, as compared to the previous 3-Series, the signature kidney grills are much more upright and forwards. This arguably legendary compact surely can win customers with its speed and looks, but with gas prices on the rise torwards four dollars and beyond, can this hell-raising sedan keep up with the miles per gallon?

The 2012 3-Series, due in showrooms mid-2011, may place respectable numbers in performance, but does it sip or consume? Will the 3-Series do or die? Here's the answer to a question a lot of people could ask: the new model features 22 city/26 city, so there certainly is a round of applause due here for this ferociously popular car.

Although the new BMW 3-Series may have tamer looks, it is no debate that the luxury marque's top-seller will stay that way.

The image must've changed, b/c when I 1st opened it to use the image, that is what came up, not the 1 ur saying.

08-05-2008, 09:59 PM
really, hmm, well talk to ben, I am sure you can work something out, consider yourself lucky, the new photo is a nightmare. :o

08-06-2008, 01:36 AM
well here is my mediocre entry, a bit rushed, around 3 hours of work.

(in caase the image dies or stops working rawr, its up here: http://ascariss.deviantart.com/art/BMW-7-Series-Wagon-94018620)

initial plan was to make a coupe of some sort and use perhaps the x6 top, but due to the angle, that was not going too well, so I made this, and even though I found a donor, a 5 series, I had to remake everything from scratch. It has mistakes but oh well.

edit due to otheres using the other original image, perhaps my entry should be removed, not fair for the others.

08-06-2008, 02:01 AM
Its okay, I should've checked again. Your entry is very nicely done, btw.

08-06-2008, 02:24 AM
lol i've already started chopping the 7er image (the one that MarioBro88 use for his entry)
because that's the image i voted for. i didn't notice the 7er image has changed. Thanks for pointing that out Ascariss. :)

08-06-2008, 02:44 AM
we can always extend the contest? or I can redo my image lol :O

08-06-2008, 09:24 AM
I actually aren't sure either of those are the one I chose... :sad2:

Guess NetCarShow have been having some problems or whatever.

I will allow any new 7er pic (so your entry is okay MarioBros88) because of the problems but the deadline will still be August 10th.

So it's been a minor cock up but we have entries at least! :fear:


08-06-2008, 02:24 PM
Thanks, MOORHOUSE! Really appreciate it!

08-06-2008, 03:30 PM
In that case, here's my entry:

IDK what to call it. It's a hatchback; 4er perhaps? :)

Progressive Activity Sedan? Very nicely done, although the contrast seems somewhat strong.

How's it going everyone!? Here's my entry, BMW CS8


08-07-2008, 06:31 PM
interesting, now that I look at it, the cs face wouldn't work that well on the body of the 7 series. Great chop theo.

08-07-2008, 08:28 PM
I'm back for this one.

My old PC broke, so I was borrowing a laptop for a while, but now I've got a new laptop and have loaded up my software and passwords etc.
