As to what looks better, that's all subjective. I say LCI E90 looks better, but pre-LCI E92 looks better.
What they removed was:
-under hood insulation
-smokers package (front ashtray with cover and cigarette lighter, rear ashtray)
-vented cup holder in the armrest
-storage net behind front seat backs
-cloth wrapped sun visors (now plastic/vinyl)
-clear outer lens for the map lights
-keyhole on the trunklid
-green tint strip on top of windshield
There might be more I'm forgetting...
