Following in the footsteps of its Sedan sibling, the svelte 3-series Coupe is due for a mid-cycle facelift towards the end of next year and today we have the new images of a prototype for the updated car rolling around the streets of Munich. Like the facelifted Sedan, which was launched late last year, changes to the Coupe should incorporate some sportier styling, reworked head and tail-lamps, and possibly a wider track.

The interior will get a new look as well, with improved trim, a new center armrest and a second-generation iDrive system with four selector buttons for commonly used features such as the stereo. The iDrive system will also sport a new 8.8in LCD display and an optional 80Gb hard drive music and navigation system.

Mechanical updates introduced in the facelifted Sedan, which should also make their way into the new Coupe include a brake energy regeneration system, an auto stop-start function, electro-mechanical power steering and tires with reduced rolling resistance.

Expect to see the car make its debut in the second half of next year before going on sale in most markets by the end of the year as a 2011 model.
