imho... it's not that accurate. looks like they just PS'd some stuff onto a pre-facelift e90. the mirrors shown in the PS haven't been updated. the lower left and right grill are were not enlarged in the PS. the sideskirts were left untouched in the PS. and imho there's going to be a change in the way the headlights look (however the overall shape will remain the same).

/\ +1 The only thing accurate about motorauthority's PS is the kidney grills and maybe the hood IMO... today's 7/7 and no OFFICIAL pics

Has anyone entertained the idea that the test mule car may have an m-tech front bumper? That could explain the difference between it and the "official" sketches.(just a thought)

Oops, too much editorializing? Anyway, the mirrors WILL be different. Also keep in mind that in the U.S. we will now have the fugly bicycle reflector in the front fender. You'll never see that in the marketing photos (because everyone knows how ugly it is).

I'm still on the fence about the cosmetic changes, even though I'm considering a '09 E91. I like the loss of the chrome milk moustache in favor of a proper kidney grill, but I'd have to see those hood ridges in person, or at least better real photos.
the reflector in the bumper looks way nicer. Plus you can get a painted reflector which will make it look 1000000 times better that the ugly orange in my headlight now.

Yeah I took a tour through the plant about four weeks ago and noticed them too. They were unpainted and sitting around; made the pre-FL hoods look dull by comparison.

I love the new facelifted E90 ! But like most of you guys noticed the mirror is pretty ugly, but I guess if I were to get the new e90 I'd just change the mirrors to the M3 ones

That looks super f*cking official.^

I definitely believe it. It has reflectors similar in style to the ones in the X6.
