But nothing is 100%, and this might have been one of those cases where plans changed. Or the information was some how misinterpreted.

Also, like you say, we still don't have M4 CS info, so perhaps they'll show up there.

666M in black... I hate those wheels, but when people powdercoated them black, they were slightly more tolerable.

A welcome updates I'd say with changes to respond to criticism from the market:


Good things:
  • Latest modular engines (better performance/economy and refinement)
  • Better percieved interior quality with chrome/electro plating, stitched dashboard.
  • better rigidity for steering feel and handling (hopefully, especially for steering feel)
  • latest lighting designs with finally LED front/rear as standard (Finally, even econoboxes have had that before BMW!!!)
  • More colour choices: nice blue, grey and italian "cuoio-cognac" leathers. finally a brown and red offered for the M3/4 (!)

BUT, some misses:
  • NO configurable digital instrument display for the top of the line M's(??????).
  • NO touch screen like in the latest 5 Series (why???????)
  • No Oled rear lights offered as optional for M cars. BMW knows to offer options to their cars but have missed a sales opportunity here. even if it's an expensive option, there would be plenty of M owners who would pay for this exclusivity.
  • Interior could be better: big black plastic console around the shifter. Air vents look cheap (no metal finish like in many high end cars).
  • Design wise, I have to say that the round fog lights look very poor and are not well integrated to the design. Why not have an hexagonal shaped fog light?

The TFT instrument display (for M cars) and Touchscreen for me a the 2 major big misses and IMO unforgivable in the LCI.

Time to do a M4 GranCoupe render with these LCI's, just to show the community what we have been missing (IMO the Gran Coupe should have been the 3 series).

I always notice the gran coupe 3 series on the road, up front it looks similar to the 4 series, but the body shape is much sleeker an lower (looking) than the 3 series and still different enough from the 2 door coupe to be distinctive. Subtle but noticeable differences...

Anyone want a new set of F80 LCI 1.0 LED headlights? So new, in fact, that they were just installed today. Car will be here in late Feb.

In all seriousness, I do like the cleaner look of the turn signal on new LED headlights. Mostly indifferent about the new angel eye shape.

I love it. I'll probably pick one up one of these days. I've always been a huge fan of LCI E92s. I feel that they add just the right touch to them. Big fan of the new headlights and tail lights. I'm even more excited about the instrument cluster - just think of what things are hidden in E-Sys!

"Enhanced perceived quality?"

So it's just perception that quality is better, it's not actually better???

Did the engines change? Maybe some of the diesels were updated to the B47 or B57? I don't keep track of those too closely. I know you guys probably get at least some of those as options down under.

Are you referring to the pics on m-power.com? I saw the new brown on the F83 (or at least it looks new to me), but is there a new red? I think the featured F82 is Sakhir.

But what about the M3? Is that Tanzanite or Azurite or something new?
