BMW Website Video LCI E90

I came across this video on the BMW website, it's an intro to the performance accesorie page. It shows the LCI E90 with wheels and rear M-Tech diffuser I haven't seen before and it looks great.

Wow, great find.

Looks like a new front and sideskirt. Not sure if the whole rear is new or just a new diffuser.

Holy crap!! what a teaser! Anyone else think those are some of the nicest rims BMW has ever made? Still unsure about the kit, as I think the M-tech may look better, but those wheels are ridiculous

Oh wow... these wheels do look good! And the LCI rear is certainly growing on me

Froze the frame for people to get a better look at the wheels.

Rims look good, but you have to have a BBK underneath or it'll look weird. Or are the stock brakes large enough now?

Those wheels look like a slightly larger (19"?) and polished version of the Canadian 135i Sport wheels...

Yes, very nice!

Rear bumper (and apron) and trunk lid spoiler looks a bit off (and busy) - think E92 aero kit rear and trunk lid wing.

The front looks promising (addressing some criticism over the LCI's bland M-tech front), so do the wheels It looks like the most ideal setup (for the E90 LCI) will be the performance front bumper and wheels and M-Tech side skirts and rear.

Looks like its going to be a full bumper/side skirts replacement (just like on the 1 series).

Actually they remind me a lot more of the old M-Parallel spoke 37 (E38 7 series wheels, also known as the "James Bond" wheels) but without the lip...

Agree, they remind me of the James Bond wheels (officially named Parallels I think).

I have always really liked that style, even posted a photoshop request to put them on an E90 but never got anything back.

FYI for anyone that likes that style, I think you could construct a set of staggered 18' reps for an E90 by using E46 application 18X8s for the front (35mm backspacing) and E60 application 18X9.5s for the rear (25mm backspacking).

I would really like to see a photoshop of this so if anybody can do it...

Great find. I guess BMW finally realized how big the aftermarket mod market is. Looking forward to it.
