BMW’s 2016 3-Series And M3 Thrown Into A Mission Impossible Spot

Since the upcoming ‘Mission Impossible Rogue Nation’ movie is going to be a very BMW-heavy, what better way to showcase the refreshed 3 Series LCI than to insert it into the action.

It’s safe to say that the action sequences (especially the car chase sequences) are going to be completely nuts in this movie – and of course, the more stunt work the better, since we really dislike CGI when it comes to car chases.

BMW did a good job of inserting the 2016 3 Series into this trailer, making it look like it was part of the action, but a closer look will easily reveal that it’s just editing. In reality, the real action hero there was the M3, which is taking on bikes, narrow alleys and it even shows us its hang time at one point.

Of course, it’s easy to recognize the 3 Series LCI from those shots, as it features a sharper design with new front and rear styling cues, but most of all, a new LED headlight design – so that’s definitely one way for you to spot which is which. Other than that, good luck with trying to figure it out from a distance, that is, unless you’re circling around it.

And just so we’re clear, the M3 in the action sequences is likely the non-facelifted version, however we do suspect that they might have brought an M3 LCI for that stationary shot at the end, next to the regular 3 Series. But again, it’s tough to say for sure from that angle, since we’d have to be able to see the new LED taillight graphics in order to make the call.

As for BMW’s “To Drive” mission, we’re pretty sure just about anyone would be willing to accept it as long as the car of choice is a Bimmer. So there. Ethan Hunt can’t have all the fun, right?
