Cool E92 facelift impression, likely fairly accurate

This impression rendering is probably a fairly accurate guess of what the E92 coupe facelift will resemble, based on what we've seen from its spyshots.

don't like at all...maybe if they would've continued the line flow all the way around the entire headlight then it would've looked thicker and maybe better

headlamps looks rather weird on the coupe, and shouldn't the coupe score the same side mirrors like the sedan did?

Wow, they've accomplished the impossible. They've managed to make Pre-LCI E90 look better than the E92. That car looks hideous. It's perfect the way it is. This is exactly why i may pick up a E92 M3 instead of the next gen model. I've got the feeling they'll screw that up too.

Maybe the new M-Sport will look much better, just like M-sport E90 LCI.

Lower front facia looks like mix of the current 5, and 7-series models...not bad, but expected something more sporty.

Like the headlights.

Surprised BMW designers didn't do a creased hood.

Artist forgot to add the new mirrors.

like it or not.. that's it, the rendering nailed it... except, as mentioned, the mirrors, and look for a creased hood as in E90

wow, what an ugly facelift, this needs lines on the hood like the 4dr facelift, and those new headlights are HORRIBLE.
