There is a face lift (minor detail changes) for the exterior of the sedan in 2009. This is the only thing so far. The main basic platform will be used for several more years. The facelift is equivalent to what the 5 series sedan went through this past year. Hope this helps

I think the model life cycle is six years with a facelift midcycle. So 2012 for a new body and 2009 for a facelift as nathand mentioned above.

Here are the recent model year cycles for the 3er:

1992-1998
1999-2005

The current one would be:

2006-2012

So expect the new total redesign to come out as a 2013 model.
Hmmm... 2013, isn't 13 an unlucky number?

Wow I don't think I'd want to launch such an important car in 2013. If I were BMW I'd move it up or down a year.
