face lifting a e90 335d saloon

I just wanted to know from the experience of anyone on the forum if they had face lifted their e90

As far as I know these are different

lights all around
boot lid
front bumper
front grilles
wing mirrors

I wanted to do the same eventually once i purchase my e90, just wanted to know regarding the lights would u have to decode them to work or anything like that ? and if there is anything i should look out and ruff prices ? thanks

Yes you are right they are the exterior defferences. The lights would need re-coding on the rear and the front if you have pre-lci halogen headlamps and want to upgrade to lci xenon. If its halogen to halogen (but with angels) no coding is required.

Surely that's prohibitively expensive, unless you're buying a car that has those bits already missing/damaged and is therefore priced to reflect they need replacement?

Just the bootlid and bonnet alone must be hideously expensive, no?
Gone but not forgotten:
325i M Sport (E92), Black Sapphire, Coral Red Dakota, 19" 225's, Seat Heating, 6FL and de-badge

Replaced by 6.2 litres of AMG powered C class.

You'd be better off buying an LCI.
