In case you missed the article on BMW Welt delivery of 2009 BMW M3 Sedan facelift, then I strongly encourage you to take a peak. One of our readers has put together an amazing story of his pick-up process at the Welt, along with some of the first 2009 BMW M3 Sedan photos. 

Within the same article, Jakaya, another reader has linked to some more photos of the new facelifted M3, this time, the car was spotted on french soil. 

There is really nothing much to add to the M3 discussion, other than the fact that this is probably the most successful BMW facelift, so now I will just let you focus on the photos.

    What can anyone say about this car? This car is “money”! I have one complaint about the company though…

    The date the M3 sedan came out was too close to the 3 series sedan facelift, and consequently to the 2009 M3 sedan facelift. If I was an M3 sedan owner I would be definitely disappointed! BMW has to be more careful with their product launches because, with such practices they devalue their cars (second hand price of the car when someone wants to sell it). I am not implying that buying a car is an investment, but it is one thing having to deal with the “aging” of the car and another thing having the car company devaluing the car.

    Too bad colours aren’t correct everywhere, but otherwise those are stunning pictures. That’s Bluewater Metallic, right?

    the colour is space grey,its new to the sedan.

    The more I see the E90 M3, the more I like it over it’s Coupe brethren. I like the Q-car-ness of the E90 over the E92.

    So what else has been brought over from the e90 facelift besides the tail lights?

  6. Fiery says:

    Clara: slight interior changes, new iDrive — I guess :)

    I think that’s the point, they wanted to push as many M3’s out before the facelift so that they can get a facelift out straight afterwards to maintain high sales volume. Quite frankly, I don’t think they care about the resale value of their older M3’s at all – which is highly irresponsible of BMW. I can just imagine those M3 owners up in arms, thinking they made a good decision purchasing the M3 and now BMw comes out with a better (new) one. I guess those customers will not be returning for the M3 again – maybe to another brand or just a 335i. ad this is something BMW did not foresee and will be punished for.

    I would also like to comment on the rear lights of the new facelifted sedans: I think they are so blood red and the entire thing is red, it looks kind of evil. I think it would look so much better with a silver strip like the X5, X6. It’s a pity though. Does anyone agree?

    I love the car, BMW does just the right amount of M trim on the cars…

    @Lance:I think BMW should have used the 3 series coupe front for the sedan facelift. This would be consistent with the M3 coupe front they used for the M3 sedan front. I agree with the rear that it could have been better by using the silver strip or even sticking with the 3 series coupe rear. But I really don’t know what the cost impact would have been.

    To be frank I am really surprised that they even made these changes. It is a bold move that shows that BMW is listening to its customers. I see the facelifts in MB and Porsche-VAG cars and I laugh. Does anybody even notice them, why do they bother making facelifts?

    @Clara & Fiery: I think also the DCT is know available in the facelift sedan version, which was not available when the M3 sedan was originally launched.
