This week, BMW is hosting the U.S. media launch of the new BMW 3 Series. Along with the 328i model we tested in Spain last year, BMWUSA brings out for testing the high-end 335i model.

All three lines, Modern, Luxury and Sport, as well as the M-Sport package will be available to journalists for photos and comparison. Our own Andrew Murphy will share with us the first driving impressions of the 335i.

The base price of the 2012 328i Sedan is $34,900 while the top-model, 335i, starts at $42,400. This represents a $300 and $350 base price increases versus the outgoing model.

The Modern Line (ZML) and Luxury Line (ZLL) will sell for an additional $2,100 for the 328i and $1,400 for the 335i model. The Sport Line (ZSL) will make you spend $2,500 for the 328i and $1,700 for 335i.

Stay tuned for more footage and photos from the event!
