The problem is and that i've said before any new car that comes out will have large mirrors on them people will just (need to) get used to them.
Also the pre LCI has the same mirrors as the LCI, but i know you mean the older mirrors with just 1 crease across them not the 2.

Only a little, I had a go afterwards and I must admit, for a big ol' car like that, it's got plenty of poke in it and it doesn't feel boaty at all. The car pulled to 80 odd without a hint of hesitation while sounding lovely!!!

Yeah, am I correct in saying that the newer, larger mirrors are due to some EU legislation?

I dont think the size itself is a problem, they just need to be styled better! Though I guess due to the increased size there's only so much you can do!!

Great pics. A good update for the E92. Liking the Msport and also the 225 style rims?! (What are they???????!) I do agree though about the wingmirrors. Much prefer the sexier original ones.

313 is the new wheel code on the Msport.

Carlos,

A couple of those pics are of a pre-LCI car which happens to have the newer mirror style but the old 225 wheels.

The M-Sport 19" wheels on LCI cars are the same as the 313 Performance (minus the Performance branding).

Love the back end on that 535i but im still not sure about the front end. Well done to Anneka for arranging that - shame it wasnt a great turn out, maybe the weather stopped a few from showing up?? I would have been there but i was up in Lincoln. May pop to Sytners for a nosey this week.
