I thought it might be interesting to have a direct comparison between the pre LCI E92 and the LCI E92 next to each other.

We believe this to be an F30 3-series in testing, though Autocar claims it as a F30 body on top of the future 3-series GT’s mechanicals. According to them:
New info about the soon to be announced E92 / E93 LCI facelift models has come to light, including a performance iS version w/ DCT transmission option.
