Weird that the mirrows are so different on the e90 and e91.

I like the e90's new grills. That was the main reason why I went for the e92. The tail lights do not like them much, the white thingy it is just too white.

The ones on the sedan are old ones. All new and facelifted cars need to have bigger mirrors in the EU now. And I guess the touring has the new ones.

That new kidney grill for the E90 looks much better then before. My biggest complaint about the E90's were that the kidney grill looked ugly. Great Job!!! Now all BMW has to do is apply the same kidney grill to the 6 series.

I liked when the grills were part of the hood and to me, the front of the e90 looks like a Pontiac. It seems the hood has some depth now though with the way it was reshaped.

These are mules... not neccessary that they WILL look the same as the final production model. The mirrors on the e90 will be the same as on the e91 and the new bigger ones shown in the pics above

I luv the new kidney grill. That is the one thing that bugs me most about the front end of my e90 besides the orange in the headlight. Black grills are going to look even better now.

yea, a good number of people do not care for the current e90 kidney grills.

i like the current e90 grills since they're similar to the 6 series, which i also always liked. plus i think the all black aftermarket grills looks great.

I like the current grill as well -I think the current e90 is more aggressive.

Eh... The grille is great but I dont really hate mine enough to re-purchase. Afew tweaks to the bumber and hood. We'll see if any interior changes come about (colors/trims). What does intrigue me is the tail lights. Looks to me like that white piece could be artificial, might be a totally different shape in the end. Interesting tease..

I love how they went with the E92 kidneys in the front. I was never a fan of how the E90 has the top of the kidney on top of the hood.

How many threads do we need on the same topic?

I guess I'm now subscribed to all 3 that I'm aware of...

Here is my input, get over the mirrors, everyone will most likely be swapping to the M3 Sedan style anyway. And if you dont like the M3's, then find someone with an earlier e90 that does and get his when he swaps...

Mirrors are insignificant...

Also, I dont believe this is the final representation of the taillights, they are camo'ed and the bright silver doesnt make sense to me...

What is significant? The "higher horsepower" 3ers the 1er information manual refers too when talking about passing on the semi-LSD technology to other BMW's...

Just my .02

Sorry, can't see much of a difference. I actually like the grill i've got - i hope these are the changes becuase the new one will look barely any different.

is that the old one is round at the bottom and then square where it joins with the hood... does not look right. now is round everywhere as the e92

the designers must have been high when they designed it. again, just my opinion and taste.
