According to the place where we someday hope the lovers, the dreamers and me can all find a connection to cars, the next facelift for the 6-Series will be "mild." As evidence, they're pointing to shots they've procured taken in Munich that suggest a new front air dam will be repositioning the fog lamps and it'll be getting a bit more newish nose. That's in addition to some new head- and tail-lights including what's being described as

"the taillights have three gill-like protrusions sculpted into the outer lens, adding a little visual interest."

Visual interest is good, and it appears that it's the best we can hope out of what's traditionally a very cautious automaker when it comes to their mid-cycle refreshes.
