Can someone PShop the new 2009 Taillights on the E90 M3?

Any Photoshop guru out there who would add the just released 2009 E90 LCI taillights on an E90 M3?

Thanks,

Looks like they took the trunk from one model and stuck it on the body from another? Besides not lining up, each section has different design elements. Weird.

So to all the 2008 haters who said the current lights were a dealbreaker and they'd wait for 2009 to order, I have to ask, Was it worth the wait?

I think the tailights look quite alright actually. Would love to see them on this photo for instance.



Additionally, if they are offered in black line like this guy on E90post pshopped, it would look even hotter...

I can rig one up later tonight. You want a Melbourne Red E90 with them, or some other color?

That would be great! If possible, I am also interested in Sparkling Graphite and Silverstone II.

THANKS!

Off topic, but I agree. Seems like it would look a lot better if the pieces lined up. I like 2008 lights much better.

i hear ya fellas. after seeing these tail lights i am soooo glad i got my 08. the new idrive would be nice, but i like the one i have now. and if the new tails is the trade off for the new idrive.....i would rather have old tails with old idrive. lol.

and as far as the front.....well.....im glad the e90 m shares that with the coupe. looks like somebody stuck a candle under the middle of the bumper and just let that sucker melt.

oh and for some strange reason i like the wagon better than the sedan in those official pictures floating around.

i like the new tails. +1 on the wagon looking better than the sedan. the sedan just doesn't do it for me, i think it is the rims.

why has the facelift E90 not got the E92 headlights like the E90 M3? BMW are really confusing with this design lifecycle.

I like it. Thanks!

On a different topic, I am slated to test drive an E92 DCT tomorrow morning. This is the one option I am not sure about so I am looking forward to it.

Will the E92 M3 experience any body changes for 2009 versus the 2008 model?

Looks awesome. Can't wait for the other ones.

Looks to me that the sections on the trunk lid are a bit longer as the license plate opening was narrowed a bit (i.e. the perimeter taper around the plate is now a bit sharper to allow more flat sheetmetal on the vertical section of the trunk lid). Still great work!
