at least they are gonna keep the side view mirrors the way they are. The facelift E90 looks like X5 side view mirrors... ugh...

I dont like those headlights at all. They look squished together while the current headlights are sleek. So far I see nothing that current MY owners should worry about. Also the lower grilles seem to be color matched.

headlights? they look like the current headlights to me..

I'm not worried about my car being outdated. Heck, the stock bumper looks boring as hell for the current E92, and it'll probably still be boring, even with a facelift.

Not a big fan of the area where grill and hood meet. Looks like it wasnt made right and is too flat on this photo.. Then again I am not a big fan of that on the older E92 even mine. The gap is too large and inconsistent from car to car. I like how the E46 grill was part of the hood. That was cool and always looked good.
Looking at the way the hood and the top of the bumper dont match up in the curves, I would guess that this isnt the final version of the hood. it will probably look like the LCI
Looking through the perforated lowers on the front bumper it looks like the same mesh shapes from the current version with a bar running across the middle on passenger, while on the drivers side has a panel behoind the mesh.
Based on the notches in the plate covering the lower pat of the bumper I would say that the lower center opening is going to be wider like the M rather than continuing the same line from the top section.
I hope it comes with the pop rivets in the front, they give it that home made industrial look I have been looking for.

That will be very small face lift. And current E92 won't be dated at all, especially those with M package. Kidneys on current E92 looks better - meaner. But 95% of people won't see a difference, so there is no reason to worry that current coupe will became dated. It is still one of the best looking cars. Taillights will stay same, there will be only some graphic difference.

I don't think that's all they will change.
At least the dumbo mirrors will come on

interesting... at this point it doesn't seem that pre-facelift owners will have much remorse
