2012 BMW 3 Series F30 Standard/Base Line photos and details

So much emphasize and publicity were given to the three new lines available for the new 3 Series, so much that one wonder that it is is possible to get the new F30 without the somewhat garish red accents in the dashboard, or without the bars insert at the air intake, and perhaps without the black side mirror? 

If you read carefully the on M-Sport package, it was mentioned that the package can be combined with the base model and the three lines. Yes there is indeed a base model mentioned. A quick dig in the BMW F30 brochure revealed a single photo (yep only one!) front isometric view without the bumper garnish surrounding the lower air intake.
Two more photos are available from BMW vehicle configurator. I cropped the photos of side and rear view. Well for me, they look absolutely fine without the Sport, Luxury and Modern Lines customization.

With no "Lines" specified, the new F30 looks more like a junior F10, with similar front bumper concept design.  The interior photo after the jump.
The interior photo shows a chrome-free on the steering and simple audio system surround without chrome accents. The only break to the monotone is the silver accents on the dashboard, gear console and door pull handle. 

Regardless of the Line-less, the F30 styling still admirable. How soon can it come to Malaysia then?
