Yicchh!

The front looks OK, but those tail lights look completely wrong on the sedan. For some reason they look great on the wagon. They're very Japanese looking on the sedan (not necessarily a bad thing, but on a German car?). Could be a Nissan product from behind. If it weren't for the BMW logo it'd be difficult to distinguish this "premium" sedan from any other Japanese (or even Korean) sedan.



However, the new iDrive looks fab!

Alright now we know what will become of the E90 sedan for the next few years.

Can we begin to speculate on the E92? I'm still madly in love with the design of my car, so the thought of them changing it in a year scares me. What could they possibly do? Im guessing tweak the headlights (even though they're perfect)... the taillights are beautiful, so they'll probably screw those up... seriously, any thoughts on how the E92 can be any more beautiful than it is right now?

Nothing special.

Only BMW fans would see a difference, not the the regular person.

Just a typical BMW mid-cycle refresh.


Lights are the only big change, really.

BMWUSA has official pics of the new 7-series up in their Future Car section and the car pictured has AMBER gauges??? The picture is clearly taken at night. (photo with brownish leather)

Perhaps BMW is doing blue illumination for the day and amber for the evening. Would make sense.

Just thought I'd let everyone know that.

the older side mirrors were much sleeker, but I love the more modern looking head light internals. Overall, it's ok.....and I'll see how I like the new hood when I see it in person. And damn, the 09 iDrive

I'm guessing they'll change the yellow turn signal portion of the E92 head lights to be more like all face lifted 5, 6, and 3 series. They'll probably add some sort of LED's to the tail lights

Hum.... I am not sure about the front bumper, and the new side mirrors look bad.... The headlights are okay, but it's definitely a plus that the orange reflectors are going to be on the bumper (which means easier to get rid off)...

i like it a lot more... the new grill (no more mustache), l.e.d.'s in the headlights (no orange markers), the eyelids, the muscular definition on the hood, the front bumper with all the intricate details, the updated i-drive with the shortcut buttons and most of all the mean a$$ looking tail lights!! A+

The front is way too small. That color is repulsive. The wheels are also very ulgy. I'm not sold on this until I can see it configured with options.
