OLD 1 LOOKS BETTER...but i guess wait untill we see their aftermarket kit's , i'm thinkin' you could make this lo0k like the new m3 easy, as for us we have to change ho0d,fenders,lights,ETC...Wiht this body should be easier.

I like the new one. Every refresh you have current owner bashing over the new design and new buyer raving over it.

I could do without the quads and the blackline-esque look to be honest. I'd just drop the thing, give it some wheels, black out the grille, tint and be done with it.

look at the 100%-zoom below, where you can see the orange stripe at the outer front-fender. What is not viewable in the pictures is, that it had red rear-LED-flashlights.

I really really dislike what they did to the rears, I prefer the pre-LCI.

The headlights are a nice improvement, and I love the DRL Angels.

BLACKLINES

People, seriously, these new taillights are LED's. If someone were to make "Blacklines" they would most likely be VERY expensive...

Just wanted to put that out there. That PS is NICE, but I doubt we'll see LCI Blacklines introduced, I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time...

PS LCI e46 owner here, love my pre-face lifted e90's, but the LCI is where its at. Now, c'mon BMW, bring us an e90 ZHP!!

I think just a little more tweaking we can now compete with the behind of an 06 Civic Sedan. Even the blacklines version looks a lot like Honda. Don't get me wrong but I like Honda/Acura. I used to drive them plus the wife has the 07 MDX and I love it, but it's a different league.

You guys must be kidding me. The rear of pre-facelifted looks like STT, it is too weak and looks more like a girl's car. I purchased e92 because of that. The front was a real bad design. Overall, e90 prefacelited was a failure.

Now, blackline was hype a year ago. Now, we are into new technology (i.e LED). Blackline will be outdated within the next year or so. But LED will still always be there, at least for few more years until the next generation. Remember few years back when everyone smoked their rear light. Now, that STT ain't look good anymore.

Of course, with aftermarket mod any car can look different. But we are talking about stock.

The new e90 is definitely looks better in any way, both front and rear.

i made up my mind - black lines look better than that back.

BUT blackline photoshop of facelifted rear lights looks amazing.

it is not a favorable design. the front "e92 style" grill and the rear "e92 style" lights are lame, make it look like a "donkey".

if you squint really hard, the tailights almost look like the current taillights.
