I don't think we see this LCI until 1Q. Maybe the mirrors aren't final? Wouldn't mind the new rear lights, though; and the new voice control on iDrive update.

I would think they would call the March release a 2011 MY.

Either way, with the lift kit on the thing (what is this a Subaru Outback now) and the base model wheels, I'll still wait to see the final, uncovered 335i with sports package to give full judgement.

But this waiting to release it in March 2010 as a 2011 is just ridiculous on BMW's part.
It's a minor makeover for fuk sake. Should of been a 2010 makeover.
DCT better come with this version too, or I'm off to find a different car for when my lease expires early next year.

I believe all these changes will be unveiled in Sept production vehicles...

The "updated" car will also be at the Frankfurt auto show in September.
New air con unit will also come from Sept production to E90/E91. This is because X1 will have the same updated unit, so they will no longer produce the old model.

And trust me.. there is no LCI E92 production until March 2010. How do I know that... I spend my whole day today planning the damn LCI production.

I did think that the E92/93 will come out in March 2010, but then its quite early to see the LCI testing. The coming X3 is yet all with camo but it will be revealed in December 2009. So I still think the LCI model comes out in September and we will see it at Frankfurt, the reason, to boost up E92/E93 sales that were quite low.

BMW REALLY fuked up the 2010 e92 that's for sure.
Could of, SHOULD of been the LCI and no doubt put the DCT in the car like they did in Europe for 2009.

I'm sure they are holding off until the LCI e92 in March (as the 2011 MY) to put the DCT in too. Probably to help the sales of the overpriced and seemingly slow selling Z4 (which leads to their other mistake...not having a lighter weight fixed top sports version).

Oh well, maybe a C63 is in the cards.

It looks like the tails keep their same shape while the headlights change slightly.

Good news for a possible LED tails swap...

I know. I work at a dealer and have direct access to what is happening in september, and it is not a facelift.

So, for those who know more about this, will there be changes to the N54 power output ? Or maybe N55 replacement ?
