The rendering was influenced by the recent spotting of an undisguised 2012 3-Series at a photo shoot along with some input from BMW insider known as Scott26 who has seen the new 3-Series design.

We see the angel-eyes headlights which are becoming part of the new BMW design paradigm but on this 3-Series the headlamps flow right into the kidney grilles. This styling cue has been seen on some concept models but the 3er may turn out to be the first production model to feature.

Bimmerpost also reports that the F30 3-Series will likely be unveiled later this year and launch officially in Europe at the Geneva auto salon next March and go on sale in the United States in the spring.
