I'm gathering you mean the exteriors. Its the same except new lights, fog lights and colors.

On a side note, I didn't see anything in the press release regarding the revisions to the V8. The 6 in the M perf. pack gets a power bump from software (which will no doubt be avail. for retrofit from dealers), but I read elsewhere that the 8 was getting valvetronic and maybe even twin scroll turbos (which the present 6 cyl. and M V8 engine already have).

As powerful as the 8 is, its got a decent amount of lag by modern standards.

Hopefully the LCI will address that.

I'm surprised there are no idrive updates? When was the last version of idrive released? 2009?
