If you take a look at the interior picture, you see it has the new air con panel (as in X1). Heated seat buttons are now located there. This same change will be in all E90/E91 from September production.

Info I got was that E92/E93 would also get some grooves to hood, as E90/E91 got in LCI... interesting to see that they are not visible in those pictures.

Otherwise as it can clearly be seen, there is no big changes coming. Passive eyebrow as E90/E91 LCI has, some new bumpers and thats about it. Couple of new colours are coming as well + some new upholstery combinations. I also heard that the 335i will get a minor power increase.

I wonder if this car will have the updated front and rear track widening? The LCI E90 got a slight track widening to give it a bolder stance.
My one major complaint of the current E92 is that the wheels looked too tucked inside the car's body.
From the pictures above, it looks like they may have actually increased the track on the LCI E92.

i call it as.. new side skirts, new front bumper, new rear bumper, new mirrors, new lights, and new tail lights.. so far no new hood. How is this so much less drastic than the e90 facelift.. i don't understand the comments. The tails, hood and maybe front bumper were the most noticeable changes. On this car I'm sure the tails are gonna be much more different.. probably elongate the e90 tail lights just as the pre lci did. I really hope that the front bumper doesn't look like the x1 lol. it should look like an integrated mtech bumper.

Plus, i can't wait to see the aero package body kit.. I'm sure it will look more different..they should definitely include a performance package aero kit for this car as well. (as i think they will from this point on)

btw, i can't believe you guys can tell a big difference in the headlights? where is the difference?

the pref. steering wheel could just be a hoax. it could be an added padding or some shit, so dont get your hopes up. this isnt any surprise. Im assuming changes to the bumpers are going to be absolutely minimal. fog lights might have bolder outlines. Am i seeing a pop out texture on the rear lights? think thats gonna be how it is? cause im not diggin it.

okay so what's this new trend to towards larger side rear view mirrors?

they've already done it on the LCI E90...

not to mention the hideous Lexus IS side mirrors as well as the larger than necessary sides mirrors on the current C klasse...

I typically like the LCI changes but not this time. The headlights and mirrors are going backwards in terms of style, but the tail lights and front bumper may be promising.

What's with the lights? They look like halogens with angle eyes. I'm guessing that the final product will have xenons.

I see BMW is now offering an "off-road" suspension package for their e92s. It’s good to know I’ll be able to traverse some pretty big rocks with that kind of ride height.

Eyebrows, LED front side markers, and new LED tails that tie into the X1, Z4, E90, F01, and upcomming 5er design schemes. The side skirts look different too, although it maybe just the shot, or shadow. Same crap truckster/SUV mirrors they slapped on the LCI E90. Thanfully they aren't as big as the Benz C-Class mirrors...It was only a matter of time.

This facelift is pretty much the same as the LCI E90 minus the hood. I too wonder if they widened the track a bit. I'm sure it will look nice in person like the LCI E90 did, minus the mirrors, and 4X4 status...

They're scalloped along the bottom towards the outside. There is a slight dip along the lower edge.

Has to be since the 3-series is getting a re-design in 2012. No point in doing a face lift on the E92 if it's only going to be for one year.

Not really... the next version 3-series is expected in MY 2012 and, if previous coupe intros are any indication, we can expect the new coupe for MY 2013.
