Click either image for a high-res gallery of the 2009 BMW M3.

We've only had a few months to get to know the new BMW M3, but the 2009 model has already gone under the knife. For 2009, the M3 sedan gets the revised taillights that originally debuted on the 328i and 335i, but the nip and tuck up front won't carry over as the M3's fascia different from its lesser siblings.

In addition to the new iDrive controller that's filtering down from the 7-series, the 2009 M3 will be offered in a new color, Le Mans Blue, which has only been available on other models.

Check out the gallery to scope out all the revisions.

Thanks to all who tipped in.

      In a post about a facelift you'd think one of the in-line pictures would be of the lifted face!

        Facelift is a generic term in automotive parlance. It just means the vehicle was lightly refreshed.

        As clearly noted in the text of the article there are no actual change to the front of the cars. Therefore, there is no reason to include a picture of the face inline with article. In fact, it indeed makes most sense to show the rear of the sedan since that is the only visual change.

      Don't care for the wheels at all. They look cheap.

      I think BMW should learn ( not copy) from Audi. Less sometimes... is more. I reckon they are putting way too many unnecessary curves to the car. The coupe looks very sweet but the tail light of the sedan is really poor. Like previous comments have said... it really does look like they took that like from a korean car or one of the new Nissan's. Wheres German elegance.. detailed but not over done.. This "tail" lift didn't really improve the car's appearance much. So... why waste the money, effort and time to redo the molds and everything just to make a change that doesn't really contribute to the car's appearance in a positive way?

      That tail end was boring when they used it the first time... on the 97 honda civic.

      Everyone hates BMW changes, and they keep breaking sales records. This is a very successful line and they are evolving them.

      Everyone hated the Audi Bassmouth but now its successful and others copy it, and are successful.

      guards red or corsa rossa or whatever german red BMW uses.
      And a ragtop rather than the pig 600lb hardtop convertible.
      And fix the sound system....I've got a rental Charger V6 with a better one while my S6 audi is in the shop (yeah...Audi is German for In-the-shop).

      The rear of the sedan still doesn't do it for me.
