Garage List
2008 328xi  [5.00]
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+does+bmw+lci+stand+for

People have converted a pre-LCI car to a LCI car. The majority of the differences is the body panels. I think the list is for a e90: new hood, front bumper, trunk and head/taillights. There might be a few other body differences but I never fully looked into it. E92's have new taillights and not sure from that point on.

on here for the conversion.

easiest way for you to understand this, is to just go find a 2009+ e90 and park next to it. apparently you're still learning how to use the internet.

lci has LED coners on the headlights.
hood has more arches and curves
Front bumper is curvier and m-tech is more aggressive
grilles are one piece. not 2 piece mustache style like the pre-lci
tail lights are smaller. they took out the white portion and made it more triangular.

there.

In addition, a lot of the features in the pre-LCI were removed in the LCI car.
