In particular, the 2009 3-Series’ reworked front end is more dramatic thanks to the sculpted hood, the new heavily profiled bumper, the revised headlights and the new grille that lost the chrome “eyebrows”. At the rear, BMW’s design team (finally) added a new set of tail-lights reminiscent of those found in the new 7-Series along with a newly shaped trunk lid and bumper. The exterior mirrors are also new.
Inside, minor tweaks include the new trim combos, a revised armrest and an updated version of BMW’s iDrive controller along with a new, high-resolution 8.8-inch color monitor. There are no changes under the hood as the 3-Series retains the same engines as before. -42 high res images after the jump
