We have just seen the photos of the BMW 3 Series E92 Coupe facelift and we are back with new spy photos, this time of the 3 Series E93 Convertible facelift. Courtesy of E90post, we have the opportunity to show you the first facelifted E93 model spotted in the old Munich.

Same as the E92 facelift, the convertible will receive new headlights and taillights treatment, along with revised/redesigned front and rear bumpers. Looking closer at the taillights,  it seems that new LED bulbs are replacing the white signal strip found in the current model.

The large mirrors can be seen on this test mule as well and there is no doubt that the final production model will feature them as well. Even though we’re not big fans of either these side mirrors or the ones found on the 335d Sedan, the new European pedestrian regulations are forcing all the car manufacturers to adopt a new styling.

Unfortunately no official information on the release date, but we’re fairly comfortable speculating that both the coupe and convertible facelifts will be released at the same time, which puts them in the early next year timeframe.

One thing that we’re working on finding out is if the new N55 or the upgraded N54 engines will make their way into one of these upcoming models.
