The lights in these pictures and all of the spy shots are the ones that the car will receive, they are not the same as the E92

I think the new hood will give it a different look and of course with the mustache gone also makes the whole front integration of the kidneys appear to be different.

I'm just kinda suprised that so much is being changed on the 3rd year and we have not even got to the inside changes yet.
It is a bit odd, but competition is increasing as is technology so the longer they wait to do a refresh the less advantage the 3 has and may not be best in class which could cause all sorts of issues.... like why spend $xxxx more for a car that is not the best?
With the new A4 getting ready for a US launch, this is a concern.

The last A4 refresh was also done after 3 years so they set the current quick refresh bar; as it were.

From what I hear the interior is moving up class as well, to more differentiate it from other models... but we have not had a single glimpse of that yet so who knows.

The overall changes are all relatively minor, with no significant changes to the SHAPE of the front and rear lights. Given the way the new 7 looks, I'm not sure what the designers are working on these days.
