New details have emerged about BMW's facelifted 2011 3-Series Coupe and Convertible (E92/E93).
The latest round of E92 coupe facelift spyshots, which looks to include mostly minor tweaks to front lights (including a new kink in its shape like the new F01 7-series and F10 5-series), revised front and rear lower bumper, and LED rear lights.
The interior dash is also slightly revised per the X1 layout (i.e. seat warmers are now on the air condition panel).
More importantly, BimmerFile is reporting BMW will offer a new "iS" model for the United States. It will boast a double-clutch transmission (a 'Sport Automatic' will also be available), an aerodynamic body kit, and several M styling cues.
As our previous spy photos have shown, the updated 3-Series will feature modified bumpers, new LED taillights, and revised fog lights. Other changes will include new colors choices (both interior and exterior), Anthracite Bamboo wood trim, and revised paddle shifters. The M-Sport package will now feature 19-inch wheels (instead of 18-inchers) and automatic high beam assist will become an optional extra.
BMW did not stop there, there will be an “iS” version (US exclusive model). This ultra sporty version will include a transmission choice of the DCT or a Sport Automatic as well as special styling and aerodynamics. Certain M Sport items, such as a steering wheel will be included. Expect similar engine tweaks to the inline 6 N54 twin turbo as have been found in the 7RR package on the X6 and of course the recently released Z4sDrive35iS.
