2009 BMW 3-Series To Undergo Plastic Surgery

Illustration for article titled 2009 BMW 3-Series To Undergo Plastic Surgery

Chief spy mistress Brenda Priddy's just sent out her latest batch of spy shots from her European slave labor photographers. It's looking like, based on these new photos anyway, as though the 2009 or 2010 BMW 3-Series will be getting a bit of a face-lift before the 3-Series gets a full refresh for the 2013 model year. That includes, as we saw in the last batch of shots, updated headlamps and taillights, plus what's being termed as a "tweaked" interior. Full spy report from Ms. Priddy below the jump and a high-resolution shot of the new look front-end here.


2009/2010 BMW 3 Series (facelift)

Although BMW will be debuting an all-new 3 Series for the 2013 model year, these pictures are evidence of a mid-cycle facelift - likely for the 2009 or 2010 model year.

Based on these photos, we're expecting a new front and rear fascia, including updated headlamps and taillights - as well as a tweaked interior. No word yet as to the powerplant, horsepower and fuel economy updates.

@Bento: There were some Mexican guys in an apartment next door to my old one. They had done just that. Red '97 Jetta on 19" chrome 3-spoke wheels, all BMW badging (including seats), and a big-ass wing on the back.
