Unfortunatly, theres nothing that new in these pics. What they do show us is that the facelifted E90 will include:
1) a new bumper design that is mildly changed, but more pronounced, with kidney grills that are more E92-like
2) a new hood, unclear what design they will go towards
3) very mild rear bumper change
4) new inner tailight cluster design, possibly going back to the original pre-production E90 tailight design (thats a trivia question for the newer E90 owners.. what was the original E90 tailight design that was nixed at the last minute
Here are the pictures:

BMW ANNOUNCES PRICING FOR THE ALL-NEW BMW M3 COUPE AND SEDAN … CONTINUED
BMW officially took the wraps off its first US market diesels since the mid-1980s today at the Detroit Auto Show. The 335d and exceedingly awkwardly named X5 xDrive35d are getting BMWs dual turbocharged 3.0L inline six diesel starting this fall. The 265-hp, 425-lb.ft. torque monster will make these vehicles among the most fuel-efficient and best performing vehicles in their class. They will also be among the cleanest being 50 state legal with particulate filters and a urea injection system that BMW is calling BluePerformance. So far no word on pricing, but based on the 535d that Autoblog.com drove recently, this should be a killer combination at any price.
DCT has long been projected as arriving with the E90/E92 M3. Well today we had a gift in the form of images of the E93 M3 Convertible which is also equipped with M-DCT. Two for one today!
Summary: $33,875 for 128i and $39,875 for 135i

This is one of the most stunning new tuner M3s I have seen yet. This car is worked up by previosuly unknown tuner (to me) Ericsson which is aparently Japanese tuner Amuse’s namebrand for its work on German cars. Not a bad first outing, although most of the beauty is because of the BBS wheels.
The upcoming PAS “Progressive Activity Sedan” from BMW has its interior photographed. While there is nothing unexpected here, it is a phenominal interior design worth a look!
Thanks to apw2607 for supplying the new M3 Owners Manual
