Default Spy Shots: 2010 BMW M3 sedan facelift

Quote:


The BMW M3 sedan only made its debut last October and itís still not on sale in a number of markets around the world, but despite this prototypes for a facelifted version of the performance sedan have already spotted ahead of its sale launch early next year. The changes are in line with the midlife update for the regular E90 sedan, due later this year, and entail a number of very minor revisions to both the exterior and cabin.

Most of the car remains unchanged although there are a few differences such as the updated headlights with new LED details, which double as daytime running lights. Up back will be a new bumper with a modified diffuser and redesigned taillights.

The sedan model will also be offered with the ĎSpace Grayí color option that was formerly limited to the M3 Coupe.

The carís 420hp 4.0L V8 is likely to remain unchanged although it will be offered with the new seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch transmission.

I guess it makes up for not refreshing the E46 M3.

I like everything except for the bulge in the middle of the hood.

That being said, I hope the M3 is more rugged than my dad's 330xi which turned out to be a bit of dissapointment.

C'mon, you know it's a phallic symbol to display one's car manliness:
