I'd only consider the M-Tech package because I think the new front is hideous on the regular E92/3.

LED tails are nice, sure but that's about it. Hate the new grilles and the "upwards" tilt of the front end. Add in the dumbo mirrors to top it off and it's pretty ugly. The E90's facelift was a drastic improvement, this is a downgrade IMO.

Oh BOY did they fuck up a perfect formula.

At least they got rid of the dumb-assed thong line on the hood.

I own a 135i so I dont have much room to talk about front ends (even though I like my front end), but the new 3 looks weird. I cant put my finger on it, but the hood slopes too much or the lower grill looks incomplete. Also the mirrors look like Shrek's ears and I hate how the side panels thin toward the front fender. To me this looks like the are going backwards with the evolution of this current model. Say what you will but I think it needs some Bangle lovin.

im happy i ordered a 2010 335i coupe. I don't like the LCI. Its very girly, with a tendency toward the elegant market sporty-wannabes and not to the sport enthusiasts.

Looks like they've softened things up to blend in more. It's like cars constantly get watered down to satisfy the masses.

I came out of a love/hate car in the WS6 Trans Am, so I'm kind of into different styling.

The front is too feminine, most mainstream but lost its edge. LED angel eyes are over due.

2010 3 series says, "I would like you to meet my gay brother, the 2011 3 series". Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Did the sedan/touring already get the new HVAC cluster and multi-function wheel? Or will they?

Some e46 owners "blacked" them out at the same time they did the kidneys, I would bet a lot of LCI e92/3 owners will do the same...

I agree the front just doesn't work.

Weaksauce. Seriously, it's M-sport/ZMP/iS or bust. And who wants to wait for the 8-speed step? Brake regeneration?

I think it looks pretty good. Love the new front and rear lights. Will the front PDC finally be available for the E92 on the US models?

I don't get it. You put these pictures up in front of anyone and 90% will say
"something is wrong with the front"

=

"something IS wrong with the front".

What are the guys at BMW smoking? This is not another "subjective" matter. This is a clear statistically mathematically engineering-ly artistically undoubtedly democratically scientifically non-arguably chemically definitely righteously mechanically aesthetically ergonomically kindergarten-ly error in design.

ok, whew, done venting...

I am in the market for a new car as of this spring as my 2006 is coming out of warranty and I usually keep cars for about four years till I pay them off. I didn't realize that they would be changing the engine like this. Isn't two turbos better than one? Maybe some experts can answer this for me. As far as the looks they look alright to me but I need to see the car in person before I can really judge it.
