I seriously doubt that...

When I first saw the new headlights, I thought it was a 1 series car.
I do like the tail lights. But don't the current coupe's rear lights look like LED's (2 lit tubes) at night? Sort of a flourescent look. They kind of have the same illuminated look. Maybe when seen in person, they look a lot different. I hope so because if they are retrofitable, I'm sure they will cost a king's ransom.

I think that the new headlights are not present in E92 M3. Look the M3 GTS that will come in May. And if they'd change the front of M3 e92 they will have to change also the front of M3 e90 (2 restyling?? mmmm i doubt). I think the M3 e92 will mantain the same headlight and change only the taillight

What's going on with the wing mirrors? I TRULY hope that doesn't come anywhere near the M3.

And can anyone shed any light on the reason why BMW are introducing an LCI this late? Isn't the new 3er coming one in like 2011?

It turns out that you've been right all along. The M3 models won't get any of the LED tech found in the E92 LCI headlights, only the new taillights. Here's some more information: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...80#post6549880

For this reason, I edited the OP and deleted my earlier post.


Best regards,
south
