Default BMW 3 Series Coupe and Convertible Facelift

The E93 BMW 3 Series will make it's debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Modifications include a new front bumper, headlamps, LED rear lights and a new rear bumper.

i think the current one is better.

All LED rear lamps and front turn signal is the major change from what I can see.
The orange tint on the rear turn signal glass looks awful, I much prefer the clear look as in the current 5 series.

Nah.. not too impressive, however small the changes might be.
(OT: the driver in the 1st pic looks like he/she had to pump the brake to avoid hitting the car in front. Might just be my observation though.)

Not too impressive, the front bottom grill looks changed with the earlier one having a diamond-mesh with fogs sitting at the very ends and two vertical wings in the middle tilted at an angle ot deviate the front air intake.
Rest all things look same, like the side-indicators, front turn lamps. I believe the rear LEDs are also kept intact as the current model also has a white tint on the tails. Close observation may indicate some aesthetic changes in the side mirrors.
The metallic colors are also from the previous catalogue "Platinum bronze" and "Montego Blue".

Lets see how good the 4 door looks like. Most of the changes are masked though.
