2012 Changes? LCI?

Are there any changes to the E89 for 2012? When is the LCI/face-lift?

I have my 2011 35is on order and hope there isn't anything too significant in the pipeline

BMW hasn't announced yet if they are going to do an LCI update for 2012, but I think I read in a car magazine recently that they will be doing an update for 2012. I know the 4-cylinder turbo is replacing the 6, but nobody knows about any other changes. They usually do an update every 4 years, so 2012 would make sense for a face lift. That may be why they are offering such good lease deals on the 2011's.

BMW usually does LCI's after 4 model years ... and then the last 3 years of the model are the LCI version. The Z4 was new in 2009 ... so the model should stay the same through MY2012 and then will change to the LCI version from MY2013-2015. An all new Z4 should be MY2016. This is what has been done for the E9X 3-series and the E70 X5's.

New engines haven't not necessarily followed the LCI schedule.

Oddly, the E71 X6 should have been LCI'ed for MY2012 following the above pattern, but it wasn't ... so I guess you never really know.

I personally don't think we will see any physical changes this year ... plus, we probably would have seen some spy-shots of one in camo.

I wonder how the turbo-4 will feel in comparison to the current NA 6 with a 6-MT. Having driven a N54 E90 for 3+ years, I highly doubt (and hope) it will have a lag similar to the Audi 2.0T... with Porsche coming out with a new boxster as well, its going to be an interesting year ahead.
