The larger kidney grill is a good update, but I prefer the M-Sport LCI e92 pics posted elsewhere.

Dont like it. Dumbo Ears. Front lights are a no go. Looks like the current e90 ones with eye lids.

Imo, the E90 was improved tremendously with the LCI E90. It seems like the E92 LCI is just a change for change's sake....just to make (the better looking) pre-LCI look older.

I am 45-55 in favor of the Pre-LCI E92...not too much difference there.

have to see it in person, but mirrors look better and everything else looks at least the same, so good.

Thanks to southlight for posting the comparison. When I look at the cars side by side, the new version looks a bit overdone.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to show and compare the LCI and Pre LCI. At first, I thought I preferred the LCI tail lights over the current model and did not like any of the other changes. After seeing them side by side, I've changed my opinion. Pre-LCI all the way!

Nicely done. The subtle changes definitely give it a fresher look.

I'm a BMW fan and have owned 3 (E36 M3, e46 328, E90 335) but I'm continually surprised about how much $ BMW spends on mid-cycle changes that most consumers will never even notice.

This is another example. Most people won't even notice. And for the record, I think I like the pre-LCI a little better.

True, but what I think is important to also take into consideration is that apart from BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and a few others, most other companies have 4 to max 5 year life cycles (Japanese, American - typical cars with biggest market).

Because of their high R&D costs, and because they are general ahead on design, performance, and technology, the higher-end companies keep their designs for a longer period, and I think they need a mid-cycle refresh to keep the line going.
