Thumbs up Differences between model years?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Is there a thread that lists the updates or changes with each new model year for the 07-13 328i coupes?

07-10 were all pr-lci
lci was 2011

For 328 there was not much of a change.. So same slow shit, with a slightly different look.

A thread for year to year differences for all body styles would be nice too. I'm interested in an e91 and want to know the best and worst years and what interior/exterior differences for each year other than the 2009 life cycle impulse.

As the years went on the more bmw saved. The hooks behind the back headrests were no longer retractable (ugly constantly open). Eventually no nets behind the seats. No suede near the doors (changed to rubber or plastic). And I'm sure there were other cost cutting measures that bmw undertook.

And this was within one run on the E90's.
The F30 well they went back to steel control arms as a result handling and braking suffered.
Go BMW!

I know for the 11-13 LCI it was as small as some button changes (like changing how a button looked, position etc.) for the 328i/xdrive.

I believe for the 335 got the n55 engine.

2010 had a noted as a bad year because see link.

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...t=disappointed

Same stuff applys to the 328 for that year in the US.

Also no pre wiring.

Base stereo downgrade in the US lasted form 2010 to halfway
through 2011.
