Exclamation 2009 LCI facelift E90 sedan - official press release + pics!


PRESS RELEASE HERE --> http://www.e90post.com/goodiesforyou/new-e90.pdf

Official BMW Press Release: (Full PDF Above)

It is the epitome of sporty flair in its segment and for years it has maintained the leading position as the mostly widely sold premium vehicle in the world. Now the BMW 3 Series sets out to extend its lead even further. Specific design modifications, a further refined interior design, the new generation of the optional operating concept BMW iDrive, new services provided by BMW ConnectedDrive, a revised range of engines and innovations in the areas of drive technology, safety and comfort make both the new BMW 3 Series Saloon and the new BMW 3 Series Touring more attractive than ever before.

With rear-wheel drive, harmonious axle load distribution, outstanding steering precision and highly sophisticated chassis technology, the BMW 3 Series sets unsurpassed standards for driving dynamics in its segment.
More than ever before, this unique driving pleasure can now be combined with an awareness of economy and minimised pollutant emissions.
Thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics the new BMW 3 Series achieves significantly
lower fuel consumption and exhaust emission levels with each of the ten engine variations available than those of the relevant competitors in the premium segment.

The new features in the powertrain field include the further optimised electronically controlled all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive. This intelligent all-wheel drive system which variably distributes the drive force between front and rear wheels to enhance driving dynamics as well as ride stability and traction can now be combined with five engine types. The new BMW 320d xDrive is available as a Saloon and Touring model.

Another new feature for both body versions: the BMW 318d - by far the most efficient vehicle of its category with an average fuel consumption of just 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres - is now also available with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Parallel to the market launch of the new BMW 3 Series Saloon and the new BMW 3 Series Touring, a new 7-speed sports automatic transmission with double clutch will be presented for the Coupé and the Convertible of the series. This allows further improved acceleration figures in the models BMW 335i Coupé and BMW 335i Convertible, and combines this added dynamic performance - as compared to the standard 6-speed manual transmission - with the comfort features of an automatic transmission.

The 7-speed sports automatic transmission with double clutch shifts without interrupting traction.

No surprises here, the final product is as per speculation/photoshops etc., as discussed here.

I'm still kinda iffy on the front bumper (too organic (?))and the rear tailights (too much red) - E91 looks better as a result. The headlights are as per the new 7 (might be a new signature element).

Hooray for LEDs!. Also applauding the new better quality looking switchgear (headlight switch, cupholders etc).

The front is OK. I think I might actually prefer the the current E90. There are too many lines on the hood and on the front bumper. It just doesn't seem to flow as well as the current sedan.

I like the headlights, but don't like the completely red tailights.

wow. very good looking. specially those tail lights. cant wait to see them illuminated. the angel eye rings are officially better than the e92's. clean and no break in the circle at the tops!

edit. actually, hard to tell. the new silver lining is in the way.

I like the current model better. The new one looks a little off but then again, we didn't like the E90 or the E92 when the first pictures were released but then fell in love after seeing them in person.

E90 will get the new iDrive. . .It's official? Nice.



However, I have to say the lines without the iDrive are pretty nice.

The headlights indicate that there will be an orange reflector on the wheel arch for the US Spec for sure. I'm glad for that. Overall it looks good, but I do like the front with the current bumper, less organic and more rigid lines, for me current looks more "strong" there.

That front looks kind of lame as well as those side mirrors.

Cool interior and front/back LED lights though.
