E90 Facelift -> Facelift E90 M3

Hey Everybody,


I have already ordered my e92 M3, but just looking over the Sedan pictures, a though occured to me.

Is the e90 M3 going to get the facelift of the regular e90 in the fall? If so, aren't some of the e90 fans going to wait another couple of months?

And if the e90 M3 does not get the facelift; aren't you going to be upset to be deprived of improved rear lights, etc?


Just curious, any thoughts?

CSL

You said improved ????

Those rear lights are ugly.


At least in my opinion.

Aight, fair enough. Let's say "updated" or "reworked" then, eh?

Best regards,

On the contrary, it's my opinion that the E90 Sedan will be updated to more resemble the new E90 ///M's face lift ala E92.

Those lights in the spy photo are mostly covered (the entire part on the trunk).

It's hard to tell what it will look like fully uncovered.

i don't think the e90 m3 will get a facelift.

in general, don't m3's not get facelifts? Ala 04+ 330ci lights compared to 04+ m3 lights.

i remember the e46 getting LED taillights, or maybe they weren't LED but there definitely were some new taillights. not sure if anything up front ever changed really.
