The latest spy photos from‘s spy photographers show both the 3 Series sedan and wagon with updated styling, though it’s not a radical departure from what we’ve come to know on the 3 Series over the last decade. The updated model will benefit from adaptive LED headlights, which were previously only available as an option on the 4 Series. Expect the front end to get mild changes including updated kidney grilles and front bumper while we also get a look at how the M Sport aerodynamics will change for the new 3 Series.
