Essentially the same. There may be some colour option differences, and some minor differences in part numbers for some things. If you've found a nice 2010 that you like, don't pass on it because it's not a 2011.

Thats not correct.

If you are referring to the sedan yes 2010 amd 2011 are LCI models

If you are referring to e92 coupe then there is a big difference between 2010 and 2011. Engine wise 2011 is a n55 vs a n54. Also 2010 is a pre lci while 2011 is lci models

You can always google lci vs pre lci and n55 vs n54

Ummm.... I'm pretty sure the 328s the OP asked about have an N52......

I'm a sedan guy and forget that the coupes have a bit of a delay in the model release and LCI year.

Yes coupes were actually manufacturer all the way to 2013 while the sedans only to 2011.
