The wheel gaps are annoying to look at... this car should be lowered at least by an inch, and the wheels spaced out, make it look tight...

Look at the cup holders, they have a little sliding door to cover it up. So much better than the removable tray they have now. Overall i think it looks similar and i like the lci headligjts and tails.

Cool, they finally installed a cup holder cover that retracts. I hated the old pull out one that they discontinued.

Sad that no one popped the hood to take a look at the new engine.

I like the cupholders but it looks like that could be the power socket in the middle and don't think liquids so close to that is a great idea

The worse that could happen is a fuse blows, nothing major IMO

I believe so. BMW tend to save LED brake lights for the LCI's.

These cupholders make me laugh. I've always read and heard about cup holders being a tad funky in e90 to normal in center under radio for f30. Then, they had separate cover to put over cup holders in f30. Then, the following year they get rid of that separate cover completely. Now, f30 has a sliding cover. All this progresses makes me smile because I've had my 2005 Acura RSX since 2005 and it has sliding cover cupholders.

Agree. I own a car the same color.. but this looks almost closer to Jet Black , which I love FAR better than Diamantschwartz on my E30 M3 and BSM on my 1M

That's how the F10 is. It's not high-voltage or anything, and normally capped off anyway.

So did my 2001 BMW X5. It's not progress, just changes in design.

The cupholders in the E90 (and E60) were the worst part of the car. If your Starbucks cup was empty, they might fling it into the back seat if the spring-loaded mechanism got hold of your cup the wrong way. And, have you ever seen the cupholder design in an E63? Comically designed as an afterthought:

Possibly. But the E90 LCI was not given LED brakes, just turn signals. The E92 received both LED turn signals and brakes.

Hopefully this was given the LED brake lights.

Overall, this looks quite beautiful IMO

My idrive-equipped 135 has the same cupholder. Best one I've ever used and beautifully designed, IMO.
