Corner markers - not turn signals.

If they were turn signals, people wouldn't be painting over them.

So from reading this, I gather that March onward production E90 cars will have High Bean Assistant as an option? I think it runs $200 USA in the face-lifted E60.

Other Geneva Motorshow introductions
The new BMW M3 Convertible
The new BMW M3 Convertible is the fourth generation of BMWs open-topped M3 and the first M car to feature a Retractable Hard-Top. It is also the first car to feature BMWs new seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) as an option. Changing gear using either paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever, the new M DCT gearbox has the next gear pre-selected in readiness and changes gear in just a few milliseconds. The M DCT-equipped car also outperforms the manual gearbox car in terms of outright performance, economy and emissions.

The new M3 Convertibles engine develops 420hp at 8,300rpm and 400Nm of torque at 3,900rpm from its 3,999cc V8-power unit. When equipped with its standard six-speed manual gearbox, this engine powers the car from zero to 62mph in 5.3 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. However, even with these supercar levels of performance, BMWs EfficientDynamics programme ensures that economy is not compromised with the car delivering 21.9mpg on the combined cycle.

The new BMW X6
The new BMW X6 Sports Activity Coup is the latest in BMWs X family of Sports Activity models. Its also the first time that BMW has combined the safety and convenience of the command driving position with the on-road performance of a sports car, all wrapped in a coup body style.

In another BMW first, the entire model range is turbocharged with the X6 offering a quartet of forced induction power plants. The range flagship is an all-new twin-turbocharged V8, the X6 xDrive50i, producing 408hp. The configuration of the new V8 engine is unique too. It is the first engine in the world to locate twin-turbochargers and a catalytic converter within the vee of the engine.

The V8-engined car is joined by the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder petrol-engined X6 xDrive35i producing 306hp.

The X6 will also offer two turbocharged diesel-powered derivatives. The BMW X6 xDrive30d is powered by a single-turbocharged six-cylinder diesel engine featuring third-generation common-rail fuel injection and producing 235hp. The BMW X6 xDrive35d uses an award-winning twin-turbocharged six-cylinder diesel engine to produce 286hp.

BMW specification enhancements
From March, all BMW 1 Series, 3 Series and X3 models receive floor mats and front seat ISOFIX child seat fixings as standard.

Purchasers of BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring models now also benefit from navigation and visibility value-added packages. Media Package Business offers customers Business navigation (complete with map and arrow view), Bluetooth mobile telephone connectivity and BMWs ConnectedDrive Assist and Online for a package price of 1,645 (2,115 on ES). This represents a significant saving of up to 635 compared to the individual option pricing.

Media Package Professional upgrades Business navigation with Professional navigation (complete with its widescreen format and perspective map view), and adds Voice Control, all for a package price of 1,935 (2,405 on ES), saving up to 745.

BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring customers can also specify the Visibility Package. Ideal for motoring in the dark winter months, the package contains Adaptive Xenon headlights, Headlight washers, Rain sensor with automatic headlight activation and BMWs innovative High-beam assistant. Priced from 605, this package saves the customer up to 270 compared to ordering the individual options.

Buyers of twin-turbo BMW 123d and 135i models can opt for an automatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddles for 1,505.

Finally, prospective owners of 1 Series cars now have a significantly wider colour choice. Jet Black, Crimson Red, Monaco Blue metallic, Bluewater metallic, and Sparkling Graphite metallic are being introduced on Convertible models at its launch. Bluewater metallic will also be available on 1 Series Coup, 3 and 5-door Hatch models, with Tahiti Green metallic also available on the Hatch.

If you picture the part with the foglights as a grin or a downturned smile, just flip the foglights part so the "smile" goes upwards, then you have the full front facelift, I think. both 1 and 5 was given the "upwards smile" when they were facelifted.

They did this "turn the smile up" effect with the left and right front panels on the E46 facelift - where it meets the indicators

Do you have any pictures of the back of your car as I am considering fitting Black Line Rear Lights also to my LeMans Blue E90 and would like to see what they would look like on the car before I buy them.

Yeah, like that, but you have to turn the part below the registration plate upside again, then it would be like the facelifted 1- and 5-series.
The foglights themself might also be changed perhaps. 1-series had rounded and got rectangular... We'll see soon enough!

Quite significant differences are showing up for this facelift
Looks like the wedge on the left and right side of the hood has been given an extra edge, and two extra creases coming down the middle forming a sort of bulge. I like the new foglights and grille too - shaping up nicely

I'm wondering if this might be a photoshop though - the mirrors are the same
