Coupe/Cab facelift

This was sent to me from bimmerfest - if you are waiting for the Coupe/Cab facelift, well, don't IMHO..

'wider kidneys, headlights/taillights to remain
unchanged they say'

Thanks Val!

I'm certainly happy with the one I have now. I'll update my sig this week to show the new clears and my "summer" setup.

Clears look so much better than the stock amber lenses that came on my 2001.

Whats the change? front air damn and side skirts, but clears already on 2002?

The front headlights don't look like they changed them to the sedan look. Looks the same to me. I might buy the side skirts and the front bumper from the club sport model though.

Theory is that they're masked out. So is the grille for now. I'm sure there's fogs, but they might be the pinlight fogs on the current 2002 sedan.

Man that sucks. I think that is a computer enhanced photo though so I'm not too worried yet. That pic has a different hood, and the kidney grilles are shaped differently but the headlights are still the same. I pray for no change so that I can have my car looking the same for one more year at least

I love it! it gets to keep the really agressive lights that make the coupe face so nice, but also the more beefy hood from the sedan... should look killer in person. I do agree with FTHM, the current front bumper is pretty sweet, especailly cause of all the addons u can put on it, but the new one looks like it could be nice, looks a bit thicker
