Arrow E92 Coupe Facelift is coming... first spy photos.

Doesn't look like too many changes so far... so far only the front lower bumper and grills... from what I can tell.

Perhaps more will start to be changed and covered up in the coming months.

So we are getting body colored kidneys, factory de-badging, and that's it?

My boss saw it at BMW event and said that it's really a minor facelift. Bumpers will be the only thing which will change...

*waits for all of the "I hate it, it looks like crap" posts*

I guess the back isn't changing, I would have figured LED taillights, but perhaps that is still an option, just not shown here as they might not have changed the actual shape of the lenses.

Same goes for the headlights, probably the same shape, but I would figure some LED's for turn signals. No need to "tease" them to us if they are the same shape...

PS: There looks to be an e46 ZHP wagon in the background of the 2nd picture, too bad americans hate wagons, we never get the cool ones.

I like the current coupe body (planning Euro D for next year), so I'm glad the facelift will be minor. How will the bumpers change?

We don't know what will change for sure. This picture could be preliminary with more changes to come like the headlights, maybe extra creases in the hood.

It's pointless to get all riled up how it sucks, it's not enough, it's too much, not what I expected. Save your breath until you see official photos.

the corners are all 'fuzzy', possible indication that they're hiding LED turn signals behind

+1, I'm willing to bet that they'll add the eyebrow to the headlights, the 2 central creases on the hood, LED turn signals + brake light, and thicker lighting rod in the tail lights. These are the corporate design elements that BMW has been putting in the LCI 3, new 7, and the new 5 PAS GT.
