The next-generation BMW 3 Series has been out stretching its legs before its official debut, and our tactical team of spy photographers was quick to snap a few photos before the vehicle returned to the automaker's lair. These photos give us a more complete look at the new 3er for the first time as its shed more of the psychedelic-swirl camouflage than in any of its previous outings. We can clearly make out the rear fascia in its entirety and we've been given a good glimpse of the vehicle's LED tail lamps as well. Those rear lights look an awful lot like the hardware found on the newest BMW 5 Series to us.
In addition, this particular mule shows off the vehicle's new headlights as well. Those rigs look to be rocking the same squared-off LED shape as the latest 6 Series, which means we may see the diodes spread to the rest of the German automaker's lineup. Check out the full gallery for a closer look.
