More Details Leak About 2011 3 Series Coupe/Convertible
BMW Blog is reporting that several assumed changes are coming for the new 3 series coupe and convertible. Most reports have thought some front fascia and rear light treatments were bound to occur based on where mules where covered when photographed in early testing.
Here is a link to some details around the LED Angel Eyes treatment coming from spyshots: BMW Blog Article
Performance changes include power numbers for the N54 engine to increase in line with the new Z4 sDrive35is: "335 horsepower (340hp in Europe) at 5,900 rpm and 332 lb-ft in “regular mode”; an electronically-controlled overboost function can briefly increase torque under full load by another 37 lb-ft bringing the torque peak to 369 lb-ft."
The Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), which was currently only available on the current M3, will now be available on 335is models. I believe the new "s" added to 335i means "sport" package models. more.
