Is it just me or does the new m6 already look outdated? The headlights remind me of the last gen m6. :-/ I feel like the LCI took a step backwards

And I can't stand sedans. I prefer two doors. But the m6 gran coupe actually looks really good. The 4 series gran coupe not so much.

^ I agree. Headlights look like last gen. I like the current LEDs better. Aside from the headlights, it looks like the majority of the front fascia changes, below the bumper, are on the non M-Sport which no one will see because the M Edition savings are still in place. And the M-Sport fascia seems the same.

I have fineline wood in my 2012. How is this new?

It just goes to show, it's hard to improve on perfection.

No you are not alone. I think BMW is going crazy now with their formula of finding something to change with the lights at every possible moment.

These look terrible in my opinion and I much prefer the pre-lci LED's. They also don't have that badass eyebrow. First time if have ever preferred the pre lci lights on any car.

I was just thinking that. Even the interior looks dated allready. Bangle cars look hideous at first (I always liked them my fav bmw of modern times is the Z4 just got me a Z4M) then weird, then ok, then great and now even chris harris likes the bangle 7!! The point is cars under Bangles design still look interesting 10 years after they came out (so 13/15 years after they were designed).

oh and BMW, the only way you can make panel gaps like that is with Photoshop. Because in reality you can probably fit an original mini in your panel gaps (new X5 bonet comes to mind)

I like it,it was already a good looking car so you didn't need much change but isn't it going to be a my 2016 at least here in the US,first model year was 2012 so 4 model years would be 2016 not 2015 right?

Agreed. I liked the brighter rings but definitely not the headlights as a whole.

Beautiful LCI!

But the misaligned front license plate on the white 650i GC is bothering me just a little.

I'm sorry...but I don't find this to be any different from the previous models to really call it a LCI Facelift.

They normally don't change the bumpers on M-Sport non-M cars and real M-cars during LCI's.....my last generation M6 didn't change any of the bumpers and I don't believe the F10 M-Sport changed, either....

I think they change the headlights on these models (M-Sports, M cars) because otherwise there would be literally nothing changed to justify buying the LCI models (and for 99.9 percent of people....lights aren't enough to buy the new model anyways). I also think the LCI headlights are ugly....

There are some differences. The angel eyes are not continuous now, they are interrupted.

I just filmed a 0-200 km/h sprint with ‪BMW‬ ‎640d‬ Gran Coupe xDrive http://throttlechannel.com/bmw-640d-gran-coupe-2015

You can see the new headlights design in the video and pictures.

I like the LCI changes - especially the new head lights so much so that I picked up a F12 16 over a 15..... another nice reason was the 600 horses in 16 with Comp Pack.
