If you're anxiously awaiting the unveiling of the 2012 BMW 3-Series, here's a couple of spy photos to tide you over until Friday.

Looking modern and fresh, the cabin is completely redesigned with a new dashboard that has a wide swath of wood trim. There's also a new audio head unit, a two-section center console and a freestanding (or possibly pop-up) iDrive display.

As we have previously reported, the car will be slightly larger than the current model and have styling influenced by the 5-Series. A variety of engines will be available and we'll have full coverage of its debut on October 14th.
