Spotted this "disguised" facelifted (edit) 330d on the 401 WB near London (on my way to a speeding ticket trial - I won) early this morning. I gave the guy the "*th-up*".. then whipped out my phone for a pic... he noticed and slammed on the brakes. WTF?? Oh well... their "secret" is on maX now. The front end is easily noticable by the verticle creases in the hood (more-so from a distance). I wouldn't have noticed it was a facelift if the emblems weren't (so obviously) covered with black vinyl-tape.

the car doesn't look that much different than the previous version, why the tape on the BMW emblems, everyone has been staring at this 3 series for more than couple of years its not like no one can tell its not a BMW ..

btw, I'm glad they changed those white reverse lights ...

Why slam on the brakes im sure the 428 ft/lb of torque could have gotten him out of sight faster.

On side note. Does anyone know how to get a job driving one of these bad boys around.
I know you won't release the secret because there are a lot of BMW groupies on here*shiner*. But just to let you know, what separates me from them is that I'm willing to do it for free;)

can't really tell it's a facelift in a sense that the (facelift) car could have been introduced looking like that and then facelifted to the current (pre-facelift) look.

it looks good, though not too much difference from the older one.
