A few weeks ago, new photos of the 2008 BMW 3-series facelift were in and today, we're ready to show you the touring version of the 3-series being caught on camera in Germany, during a test drive. 

The rumor is that the 2008 BMW 3-series touring wagon will be released in the third or forth quarter of 2008.

As the photographer points out, the spy photos show new headlights and tail-lights, with new bumpers on both ends.  New air intakes can also be spotted in the pictures.

BMW is facing some tough competition in the touring wagon market, especially from Mercedes' C-Class wagon expected for a 2008 delivery.  The new C-Class wagon will have an optional 3.5-liter V6 getting 268 horsepower with seven-speed automatic, or 3.0-liter V6 as a six-speed manual or automatic getting 228 horsepower. That's pretty impressive and tough for BMW, but in the same time, very good for the consumers that are looking for the best deal and perfect car.
