E92 M3 New Headlights

The current E92 320D and 335i have head lights with eyelids on them. Does anyone know if the 2013 final production run M3s have them too? I noticed the recent M3s have the new updated LED tail lights but still using the old head lights.

Yeah I had noticed this also...

I'm no expert but when the LCI was introduced, the normal 3 series range had a freshen up of the interior tailights headlights bumpers mirrors etc.

The LCI headlights are a different shape, along with the bumper.

It seems the M3 was still 'fresh' enough, so they kept the existing front bumper and thus the 'old' style headlights (they would have had to design a bumper to suit the LCI headlight)

Since the LCI tailights are simply a bolt in affair obviously they carried over.

One of the biggest upgrades for the appearance of the M3 I think is what these guys do, if you want eyebrows, red eye, blue eye they can do it. The rings are enhanced with LEDs. The turn signal indicators can be replaced with 10watt LEDs. Results are amazing

Thanks for the info DaveDee. Not sure if I'll be heading down that path but it's great to know the options are there
