The LED headlights look good. It's about time considering that they were on the 4 series concept so long ago.

If the LED headlights are std on the 340i, they better make them std on the m3 also.

Making the HUD a separate option is a nice move. Only thing I don't like is the name 340i :/

I hope that BMW wil not become just a factory of headlights (changing only the headlights design doesn't mean facelift! This is the way of thinking of Audi)

The M3 have 4-Series front end ... like when E90 had E92 front end. That why no update for the M3 front end. Actually it already looks good.

Guess correctly: Platinum Silver Metallic is part of the range. The survey I did a month ago so worth it!

I had voted for Platinum Silver color because it is unique and stylish! Winner

I like the new changes to the front of the car, but I'm still not sure how I feel about the changes to the back.

Honestly the only thing here that makes me jelly is: Redesigned electric power steering

And even still, I don't mind the steering of my car.

Also, I wonder if they actually are using white LED's for the backlighting in the AC now, as the pictures suggest. They do this on the BMW website on some cars too, but its not actually how they come.

Seems like they would either do it this year or with the G20. Unless they're going to do them both with the 4er LCI which IIRC should be in 2 years, which would only give them 1 model year of new engines in the F30/1.

Although I like the LED headlights, something doesn't look right. Maybe it's the execution of the little bar towards the grill?
The tail lights are terrible.

I don't think they look terrible, but I don't like how far they're getting from the traditional BMW round head lights. First they chopped the top and bottoms off, nice change but still the same identifiable character. That I liked, albeit with initial hesitation. But now they chopped them in half and they're getting more like Audi's LED's. Too far IMO.

To me the most important question is: how this that new electric steering? More road feel or more isolation for the Chinese market? :

I agree and maybe my wording is exaggerated, but I think the current leds look better than the LCI with that horizontal led bar.

So...
Tha buttons for parking sensors, Traction Control, departure lane, and so on are in the bottom left side? How dumb is that?

First you must look in that direction and that means distraction, and second, if I am right handed and used to keep always the left hand on the steering wheel, I will have the non logic task to adapt to this crap.

Is like the heated steering wheel button behind the wheel that you never see if is on or off.

WHO is the idiot behind this decision? That central console was nice before and practical, now the commands are spread over? Some things should stay where they belong...
I don't even like the new central console; it doesn't give you that techy image anymore, nor the flow with the shifter section.

What about putting the rain stick behind the armrest? that will make sense....

BTW,the headlights are ok but in the end they look like a chopped identity.

Some things should stay as they are.

Wow front looks so much better with those lights. Pitty the M3 didn't get it. Does that mean the M4 also won't get the new head lights? Anyone know?
