love them both. Front end of the facelift is

Is it me or does it seem like they took a step back with the mirrors. e46 had the elephant ears we all love e90 preface had nice almost M3 style mirrors, now the e90 facelift has a mirror between the two.

give me a facelift e91 335 (i or d) and I will be a happy man.

So beautiful! Now if they'd only sell the 3 series cars over here.

Alpina always does it right, simple, elegant and classy...if only these parts were readily available here in the US.

You can get a lot of the parts in the US from KSK or you can import them, which costs less for some reason. You just can't get the whole 3-series cars here.

Wow, I was not happy with the facelift E90 but Alpina actually made it look good! I still prefer the pre-facelift E90 (I may be a little biased ), but we'll have to see what other companies start doing with it. I do love the new headlights though...I may try the retrofit once they're available in the dealer catalog (no amber on US spec headlights...finally!)

Nice job Alpina!

The mirrors are bigger due to new EU rules. Unfortunately you are going to start seeing larger mirrors on all new European cars. Looks like prefacelift mirrors are going to be the new mod.

That would be a beast I would love to have in my garage. Don't even need it in Alpina guise. Can you imagine this thing with BBS's? Wait nevermind
