F80 M3 hit the scene as an MY2015 in early summer 2014, but the MY2016 F30/F80 LCI won't be here until summer 2015.

So yes, LCI comes second model year again, but the difference is the M3 hit early this model year - before the 3 did, even. So no one wanted to wait an entire year for some tail lights anyway. Now, for people planning to take delivery next year anyway - yes, they should take notice.

Plus, we've has multiple high profile discussions about this on F80.bimmerpost so people have had multiple opportunities to inform themselves. I tried to do that back in 2008 too, but I think this time the audience is more up to speed. We'll see soon.
