Lightbulb E92 Interior Tweak Photoshop. Im sure you'll like this.

I gave the e92 a minor e46 tweak. the e92 dash seems too too flat so i tweaked it a bit. i would really buy the e92 if the interior looked more like this Enjoy

Ok..I am going to be honest! I like that alot more! I am really feeling that bend you put in! Only thing is it makes the interior look so much smaller!

Nice chop, but I'm a bit indifferent to the change.

Very nice. I like the E46 blended tweak a lot. If we can get this improvement plus moving the navigation screen similar to the location on 07 X5 dash, then it perfects the E90/E92 interior.

Hopefully, BMW is serious about E90/E92 mid year facelift to incorporate the interior changes you made. It is still a few years away, BMW definitely got time to make these changes for mid year facelift.

i didnt want to change much of it. im just so used to my e46 dash that when the dealer gave me a e90 loaner it felt as if there was something missing. so this photoshop is what i would have liked to see. some will agree, some wont. this photo has mixed opinions. actual e46 drivers would most likely understand me more that non e46 drivers. you have to sit in it to know what i mean.

i really like it, the change is just perfect. especially if u quickly flip between the 2 pics. it keeps with the new design but better follows classic bmw interior elements. thanks to Alpine325ci what would we do without his chops!

If it is that simple to bring that centre section forward, then why the heck did they not do it? With the iDrive being between the seat, a passenger could easily change the stereo, although I doubt many E46 passengers have had trouble adjusting the radio either.

i dunno why they didnt do it but sometimes when they want to change a look they over do it to where it looks either pretty bad or even better. in this case all except for the navi location, everything else looks pretty bad to me IMO.

well they should start with making that e92 rear look more similar to the e46 and keep the rest the way it is. that and the dash that i made should have been made that way. there are alot of things e46 drivers would want to keep on the e92. i'll wait and see if they ever change it again before i buy one myself.

you're absolutely right bro, I still love the solid look of the E46, the rear is perfect !

alpine that looks sweet. but i think if we overlayed the images, we would realize that setup would be physically impossible. the concept could possibly be made, but i dont think it would look that close to the pic.

Common sense; any bent form of material will be more costly to produce than a straight one. BMW killed one of the best features of it's autos to save (make) more money.
They did the exact same thing with the hood on the new Mini. But, at least this time they admitted the reasons!
