BMW AG says it won't change its marketing plan for the next 3 series despite an Internet leak of official pictures and details of the redesigned car. Usually automakers release some teasing details about a new model first, then make selected photographs available and hold an official press launch. "The finely tuned strategy to unveil the car has come tumbling down," a BMW source says. BMW did not plan to begin its publicity campaign until late this year. Details of the car, to be introduced next year, appear on germancarfans.com, above, and other Web sites.
