Following the sedan’s footsteps, the already perfectly executed 3-Series Coupe model will receive a mid-cycle facelift early next year. From the streets of Munich, the fellows at MotorAuthority are bringing us some latest spy shots of a prototype spotted during testing.

The Coupe and Convertible models will receive new headlights and taillights treatment, along with revised/redesigned front and rear bumpers, and new side skirts. A new set of oversized and less sleek side mirrors are being tested on the current prototype.

The interior design is also rumored to get a small upgrade, with improved trim and a new center armrest. Similar to the recently unveiled BMW X1, the heated seats buttons are now located onto the air control panel.

While BMW has never confirmed the addition of a new engine or other mechanical updates, MotorAuthority speculates that EfficientDynamics technologies like brake energy regeneration system and stop-start function will make their way into the facelifted Coupe.

The facelifted Coupe and Convertible models are expected to make their debut next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

    Where is the DCT for North America? they can shove this face lift up their …. .

  • bunker

    somebody help me with the changes, as I can’t see them, even though I drive a coupe…

  • AiRit

    Where are the ‘new’ head and tail lights? I don’t see them in these pics!

  • Austin

    I agree with Artmic! Put the DCT in it!!! That’s what we really want, but they won’t… it would close the gap between the M3 and the 335i that much more…

    I’d be surprised to see BMW roll out such high level technologies on a mid-life cycle refresh. Seems like these technologies would be better suited to the 2011/2012 next gen 3er?

    What are the interior trim changes, anyone speculate they will get rid of the middle hump, redesign the dash to look more like the other models, the interior dash is the only reason I havent moved up to the new 3. If not then I will wait on 2012 but if the rendering with the oversized grill is actually made it to production, then I guess there will never be anothere 3 for me.

    no drastic changes , everything remains the same…they are not MB which separates everything and everything is new and original thats why they will always be nr1

      @ viper, Have you driven a Mercedes recently or even looked at their resale value in the last 5 years? I’m guessing not given your statement.
