mid cycle facelift, tbh i dont like how they've altered the kidneys.
I was just wondering when the coupe was getting a face lift.
The new kidneys are boring!:eusa_doh:
i hope they integrate LED's or the CELIS pattern into the tail lamps.
Overall this is a subtle facelift , so only some minor changes ,afterall it is still a beautiful car.
Kidneys on current E92 looks meaner than those on face lift... Im glad it will be only a minor facelift
I'm curious about the hood - looks like a sheet of metal over the real design. Furthermore, I guess the lights will change, imcorporating the new eyebrows.
Yep, but these little changes will make a huge difference. Just imagined the E92 with those awesome LED turning lights of the E90!! Must looks fabulous!
A lot more will change than we are seeing. This is just a decoy.
The backside is untouched, and the front lights will change too, with LED blinkers and probably eyebrows... And like Dunkel said, the whole hood is covered up too; it will get the lines the sedan has, the Z4 has and the new 5er will have.
I expect the same changes as E90. New bonnet, LED, Tubes in the rear. Better interior materials etc etc The shape of the rear lights will remain same and perhaps a new M-package.
Yep, I'm expecting something like that too.
Huh? The E92/E93 have had CELIS LED tubes/stripes from the start (it's E90/E91 that didn't have them before facelift).
they are just fake. E90 has the new generation and thats what E92 is getting as well. not the fake ones
Nope. They are not fake. :eusa_naug The stripes in the rear lights of E39 5er and pre-facelift E90/E91 were not using (CELIS) LED technology while the E92/E93 already are. After the facelift of the 3er sedan/touring there has been no model in the BMW lineup that isn't using LEDs in the stripes.
This was the situation before E90/E91 facelift (look at the box that says "LED Lichtleitstäbe Heckleuchten").
whatever the case is, you know what I meant. E92 is getting similarities with the E90 lights
Well, I just wanted to point out that the E92/E93 already has LED tubes (and not conventional light tubes like E39 or pre-facelifted E90/E91). :t-cheers:
But yeah, I guess they might update the rear light graphics (e.g. by adding LED turning lights).
I expect the facelift to include most of the things already mentioned by you and others (e.g. new bonnet, updated front lights (with LED blinkers) & kidneys, modified bumper, better interior materials etc.)
IMO E92 with M package is still the best looking Bimmer. I like it even more than new Z4.
Wow in fact I never realized the e92 didn't get its FL yet. It still looks so fresh and so nice that it doesn't need any FL at all (unlike the e90 which badly needed it).
I hope it won't change much, 'cause it's really beautiful as it is and hasn't aged one bit! That car was (is) really a home-run for BMW!
