i'm not digging the front... it resembles 1-series... not as sleek as the current model year.

After looking at the pictures for awhile, I think the front looks terrible, the car lost it's elegance and aggressive look. However, I do like the new LED taillights and will most likely change mine if it fits. I'll definately need to see the car in person though

yeah we should start a group buy on the taillights, i might get one have to check it out at a local stealership first.
Yea i hope the LED TAILS and the SIDE ROCKER PANELS fit our current 07-10's. Thats about all ill be changing out first, maybe the paddles later.

One thing i noticed, since the LCI tails are entirely red minus the reverse lights, if we retrofit them in our pre-LCI's wouldnt it look weird. being that our signal / hazard lights would be red in the back and orange in the front? something to think about...

That lower front bumper does remind me a bit of this:

Even the new mirrors compliment the tougher stance.

Add the N55, which will hopefully resolve the HPFP issue and deliver better performance (non-tuned) and mileage.

The new to the 3 red, white and blue colors are winners the metallic white is sure to be number one.

Can't wait to see the LCI M-Sport.
There are (bad) pics of the M-Sport in this thread:

Im with you on the retrofit, but the red lights is exactly how it is on the E90 both pre-LCI and LCI here in North America.

The front just kills me. This is not something that will grow on me. The lights seem disproportional, and the front bumper looks like crap.

A lot of cars have red blinkers in the rear and amber in the front. That said, the LCI E90s have amber rear blinkers in Europe, even though the taillight assembly appears to be red when all the lights are off. I'm willing to bet that this will also be the case with the E92 LCI. That is, the entire taillight assembly appears to be red in both US and Europe, but the European blinkers light up amber and the US blinkers light up red.

Unless the price difference is going to be significant, I'll be retrofitting with European LCI taillights.

Twin tubos arent gone. They are going in the 335IS and will be putting out more power than the current 335 when they get there.

I wonder if those stupid silver things on the front are removeable? If so, it would look good.

It has been said many times that the mirrors are required to be bigger due to EU safety regulations.

probably, or it could be painted, that would make it look much better.

I don't really post here since I've postponed my 335 purchase for after grad school (trying to be financially responsible) ... but the bumper looks way too much like my Acura TL Type S. It's almost a direct copy, even the shape of the fogs are the same. The only difference is the middle part is open in the 335 whereas the TL-S is not.

Back lights are hot.

A regular 2008 TL (TL-S has the same bumper) vs 335.

The same great minds that are dictating the ped-friendly flat front ends. Fucking European regulations are screwing up our beloved Bimmers...

That said, congratulations here, BMW...on the taillights. The LED angel eyes are cool, too. As for the rest of this LCI, you really fucked up the front end. And the new rear bumper is too busy between the tail pipes.

Glad I have an '08!!

Damn I must be the only person who really is digging the new front end, I think it looks fresh and those front slats can easily be painted black.

Most of the people who are not liking it have current models I may add.

I just got my e90 MY2010 and loving it everyday.

After looking at the LCI for e92, I thought the pre-LCI is much better overall. The headlight on the pre-LCI is a perfection -- even better than the e90 LCI headlight (even though I still love mine). The e92 headlight looks bulky, almost similar to the 1-series. It's fine to have bulky, cute looking light for a hatchback, esp when my sister is driving it, but definitely not for a coupe e92.

I love the e92 LCI tail-light! I thought it looks marginally better than my e90 LCI, and waay better than the e92 pre-LCI. Overall, I'm still glad that I have the e90 LCI though - the sculpted body is soo cool...

I always thought that the pre-LCI E92's rear end was too boxy looking. The LCI fixes that.

Can't wait to see the M-Sport and 335is.

This will be a nice replacement for my E90.

Mid-model refreshes seem to do nothing more than 'busy up' the original design. Few LEDs here, couple more swoops and slashes there.

No thank you.

I'd wait for the completely redesigned next generation.
