Tailights, hood, front lights, mirrors......Think that's it. All cosmetic.

MSport is a must on LCI e90's.

The Front fenders are plastic, on Pre LCIs they're steel. Rear bumper has minor changes.

vented cupholder, glovebox flashlight, and hood insulation are gone. LCIs built from March 09+ are no longer prewired for alarm.

Cant think of anything else at the moment

Most important change apart from cosmetic is the new i drive - much much better than pre LCI, also the front and rear tracks have been extended.

Do you care about a vented cupholder and a cheapo flashlight? Decide for yourself..

And if they took away hood insulation (which I have never heard before) they can keep it - maybe that's why my LCI sounds so much nicer than pre-LCI cars.

Its true, My sister has an 07 E90 and she has insulation under her hood.
And i was just thinking that second statement when i was on my way home when in another thread you mentioned that the LCIs engine sounds different than the Pre-LCI

I thought the plastic fenders are only on the E92? E90 have metal fenders.

Mine is a 2010 LCI and it came with hood insulation. The wider track is noticeable.
