the launch date seems set now. Even the delhi dealer is going to show me the car in 2-3 days when it comes into his stock yard. Let's see how much water the F30 actually holds.

Cheers !

I doubt if I can beat you on this one.

My astrologer once told me that all is decided by eclipses and star combinations

An early spec sheet would be great. Waiting...

Hey Guys,

Just spoke to BMW executive. Pre-Launch function at Cochin showroom on 20th and 21st of this month. I am told that all details except price will be available during the function and the cars will be available for test drives.

Staff training to be held at Delhi around 18th of this month. The launch, according to him, will be around the first or second week of August and the pricing details will be available by then only.

- Regards

Ooh that's the 328i ! And I don't think they'll be testing the car that is so close to its launch.
I think it must be a demo/publicity car used by navnit motors for the car to gain some attention from the public.
Also, I can see those QR barcodes on the car (those square barcodes similar to those of bbm). Many car companies use such barcodes for advertisement wherein the consumer can scan the code using their phone and experience the car by taking them directly to the car's website or something.

Saw an Advertisement in Hindustan Times, Delhi Edition, Dated : 14th July 2012, Page 1.

It mentioned "Ultimat3" and the Word and Font were same as the Test Mule captured in the pictures. It also mentioned about a site : THE ULTIMAT3

The site has a timer which says 19 Days to go Until Launch. So BMW New 3 Series F30 will be launched after 19 Days. Guessing the date is 3rd August.

Attaching a screenshot of the Advertisement from the e-Paper.

Yesterday I saw these car near Raj Kumar Road. Seems like more or less publicity to me. As the vehicle was just going around the same place and was stopped at one place for some time.
