I'll have to see it in person, but I am still thinking pre-face lift is better. Lots of mixed opinions on here.

To me the E90 and E90 LCI look like two totally different cars. The E92 to E92 LCI looks like just a minor upgrade.

My E90 LCI will stay up to date for awhile longer with the new E92 LCI front lights that are almost an exact match.

Pretty much the only thing I like about the LCI is the rear tail lights. I hope we can fit the new LCI tail lights on a pre-LCI e92.

Are the headlights any different other than the LED's on the corners and the 5-series eye lid? They look brighter.

Insecure pre-lci owners much?

I like the subtle side profile change, coupled with the new led lights.

The front bumper is a little more grown up without the paul wall style mesh grille.

I'm curious to know what the new color options will be...

lol seriously, newer is always 95% of the times better or else everyone would still be buying E36s. couple more years and its time to trade up the e92.

Most people will not even notice the changes. Dont care for the 2 silver bars on front bumper and the dumbo mirrors, but other than that its nice.

I agree. If not, why would BMW take the time of modifying an already high selling car?

I think I'm most amused by people referring the LCI as being "less angry/mean looking," lmao.

Unless it's an m-sport or has some kind of aerodymanics the stock 335 front end doesn't look angry, period-

i hate how when the newer model of anything comes out, you wanna just drop the old one and get the new one.

my car seems out dated now. lol i still love it more than anything though.

In my opinion the old E92 with the new led rear lights is the best setup !

are the dimensions different? Because the pre-lci seems much more narrow while the lci looks more square-like. I have a pre-lci and I don't recall it looking that slender. Either way, I like the pre-lci better. The only thing I like about the lci is the taillights.
