You're right klier, looks like tail lights will have same shape, only graphic will be different - with LED turn indicators and LED brake lights, similar to 7 series or Z4. I wonder if it will be possible to replace current tail lights with LCI's rear lights on E92 (pre LCI).
Looks like the LED graphics inside the light will resemble the E90.
Are you sure? See below:
Oh, he meant that corner. I thought Vroom meant the outer corner where the turn indicator is located.
Yeah, the new E92 lights mimick the E46 FL in that way I think it looks great. Better than before even maybe...
I meant the corner closest to the kidneys
Sucks that BMW aren't changing that...
I hope this hasn't been posted before but here is a picture from Auto Motor und Sport (AMS). Link to the original article.
The headlights doesnt need any changes, its perfect right now and sexy agressive.
IMO current headlights looks better than those on photoshop. Similar to E46 Coupe, I think pre-face lifted E46 Coupe looked more aggressive and better than face lifted E46 coupe.
They're nice, but change doesn't hurt. I sure don't like them as much as you!
Oh no! Headlights are totally ruined... :eusa_doh: I hope AMS is completely wrong this time.
New photos :
Is there any reason why they're taking an eternity with this facelift?
Are the sales of the current 3er coupe/cabrio still strong that they're holding off on the facelift ? This facelift seems mostly cosmetic, so why the extensive testing schedule ?
It's just following the usual schedule. :t-hands:
Hmmm... must just be me. It just feels like, for a straight forward mid-life facelift, they've been testing this car for a while now. I'm sure there are some mechanical upgrades, but nothing that other BMWs don't already have, so it just seems strange that they're taking a while for something that's fairly straight forward.
On the positive side however, it's good to see that BMW are preparing an update M-package for the facelifted 3er C/C alongside the standard model facelift. Now BMW can release press photos which include both the standard model, and the M-package..similar to how Audi makes their vehicles seem exciting in their press releases by simply showing the car with an S-line kit.
I wouldn't rule out some new engines...
^ New, new? Or new but already featured on other cars (like the N55)?
Let's just wait some more weeks.
