The 2008 E90 m3 had old idrive and old tail lights. In 2009, new idrive and LCI tailights. I understand they are "improvements" but from a customer standpoint, its annoying and expensive to keep up with. We buy BMW's for luxury and performance and to own a high quality vehicles, not to have an "obsolete" model after 8 months. Am I the only one annoyed by this?
It keeps you always wanting the latest/greatest. Trust me, when I found out my 2006 550 with all the upgrades was only going to be an 8 month run before the NEW 2007 came out, I was not happy. But it made me WANT the newer car.

gehmjc21 - I know - that sucks. You still have an incredible car and will have an incredible trip.
