Never change a winning team. It’s sound advice that BMW clearly kept in mind as it pulled together the 2011 facelift of the 3 Series Coupe and Convertible.
The new update of the Bavarian success formula give these models a sportier presence, though the changes are subtle. That’s no surprise, since the big changes are still in the works, coming with an entirely new generation of the 3-er due out in 2012.
The 2011 BMW 3-Series Coupe and Convertible are most readily distinguished by their longer hood and longer front quarter panels, a widened kidney grille with vertical bars that are not as flat as before, and LED corona lights around new, almost grim-looking headlamps. Also the LED tail lights are more easily recognizable at night.
