There is not much wrong with the car as it is now. I wish the mirrors were a tad bit bigger, but even that I got used to. For the first time since I got my first BMW in 1994, I have not felt like I want a new one only couple of years in. I love this car. You can add Mtech or M bumper if you like to change it. I'll probably get the LEDs when they make them, but thats it. Maybe I am getting old.

Meh it looks the same other than the headlights and the front bumper. They forgot the new mirrors. It doesn't look any better in fact i think it looks worse. Kind of pointless imo.

Looks like they basically took the lower front end directly from the LCI E90, it's the exact same set up, just doesn't look good. My favorite part of the E92 is the lower front grill. I don't like the drop in the corners of the headlights either.

For those who crap on the new mirrors of the LCI E90, believe me, they are 100x better that pre-LCI IMO. My Dad has a pre-LCI E90 and they just seem way too small compared to the LCI mirrors I'm used to.

+ 1. The headlamps were the one of the sexiest things going on the e92, they were absolute perfection.

I'm with you, every time I get a loaner from the dealer I feel disappointed when I get mine back and can only see half as much behind me.

I guess that kind of lift can be expected. The E46 saw a little "angle" added into the light, too during its LCI. I'm pretty down with it.
