Exclamation 2011 E92 / 93 LCI updates - iS version & DCT coming

As reported on E90post Homepage.

points of interest:
Quote:
First, things will get sportier- new bumpers, LED lights and slight interior tweaks. 335i models optionally equipped with the M-Sport package or with the Sports Package will have 19″ wheels, this is a step up from the current 18s
Quote:
These refreshed models will be some of the first to optionally offer the “pull/pull” paddles (like ///M in the past) for transmissions without a third pedal
Quote:
BMW did not stop there, there will be an “iS” version (US exclusive model). This ultra sporty version will include a transmission choice of the DCT or a Sport Automatic as well as special styling and aerodynamics. Certain M Sport items, such as a steering wheel will be included. Expect similar engine tweaks to the inline 6 N54 twin turbo as have been found in the 7RR package on the X6 and of course the recently released Z4sDrive35iS.
Note: the DCT transmission will only be available on the iS version.

Just saw those on the Bimmer file website

Hoping they offer engine tweak across all models. Would like to see an extra HP boost for the 6MT drivers as well.

Awesome. These are kind of the same changes that happened to E46 in its developement lifecycle... optional SMG, LED Tails, 19s, etc...

hopefully 1 series gets a boost as well.
Not sure about manual.. Read somewhere manual can't handle additional hp/torque per BMW.. its a shame...
LED lights would be a welcome improvement.
uprated N54 is a good edition (Infiniti G has around 330hp with more less torque)
Hopefully new M-sport has nice wheels and aero visual.

Good stuff. I'm actually quite shocked they're putting the DCT in an E9x for the US market. Figured they wouldn't bother until F30 comes around.

Nope, it is a coming. Just keep in mind that the DCT will only be available on the "iS" models. The new 19s for both the ZMP and ZSP are welcomed as well. It is much like the E46 LCI.

I was thinking the same thing. They have to increase the price gap between the 1 and 3 series.
