Any visual changs to the 2012 F10

There is a lot of talk about the price and package changes for 2012 F10s. Wondering, is there anything visually different.

How would you spot a 2012 vs 2011?

Optional ceramic shifter and iDrive knob could be a minor difference.

2012 - extremely clean & shiny. As for the driver - there is a big, big grin on his/her face
2011 - just clean & some shine. As for the driver - The odd grin on his/her face.

Downside, you can't order ceramic controls with 2TB (Sports Auto Transmission). I guess they haven't made the sportier shifter in ceramic, but why can't they simply use the other shifter instead? Weird!
