Not big differences

I like F30 front(single big good differences). I prefer E90 interior.

Nice!

I'll take the E90 steering feel, size and interior over the F30, not to mention Montego w/black kidneys, but that's just me.

I'm holding out for the 4.

Enjoy those rides all the same!

No I agree too. I prefer E90 as well. I think some choose the F30 due to the relative "newness". Fresh always grabs extra attention.

Nice photo comparison. I'm liking the F30 more.

You are right, with blacked out grills the E90 looks stunning

I think LCI e90 looks slightly more premium than the pre-LCI f30. I think it has to do with the e90 having LEDs all round. I'm looking forward to the LCI f30. I sort of dislike how the current f30 has the grill connect to the headlights. If I had a say I'd keep the overall design of the f30 front end and add LED marker lights and disconnect the grill and headlights like the LCI e90. I think that would look sharper. Just my 2 cents.

I wish Both cars were in the same color to be a bit fair.

wow that does look pretty awesome.

i'm sitting here staring at this, as my 2010 A4 is being warranty repaired for the 2nd time. (i am currently driving a rather pimp yaris)

and thinking, i need to hold out 1 more year to get an F32. That does look damn nice though.

I like the chestnut interior better but other than that the F30 looks sick!

F30 is a slight improvement. Bumpers are more aggressive, more "M" like and both headlights are still hideous. E90M3 headlights made the car look so much better IMO.

F30 FTW!
The F30 interior blows the E90 outta the water IMHO.
The front of the F30 looks awkward from some angles but from the A-pillar back it's a much cleaner cohesive look.

But I may be biased

My dealer is going to fix that for me. They knew not to drill it but the new prep/lot guy got over anxious to prep it. At least they are going to fix it and make it right!

Wow, look at the size of those grill openings on the F30. Watch out for your A/C condenser. My E90 MSport just got hit by 1/4" piece of debris and is costing $1200 to replace. Yes, I'm having to foot the bill for this.

I just can't get over the beak of the F30. For me its too busy, with many lines. I prefer the more cleaner look. I don't like the heads up display, yes I know it's the new way for the automotive industry. I like the rear, and the side profile up to the hood.The F30 for me has too many gizmos. I prefer premium pkg, sport package, xeon , and heated seats. The less electronics, the less annoying things to go wrong. I Prefer to keep it simple on the outside, and the inside. I LOVE MY E90.

Looks great! The darker F30 color hides that awful line between the hood and the front end much better vs the lighter colors. Also, in spite of the darker color, the F30 looks pretty large

E90 is way more classy inside and out. F30 is trying too hard and as someone else said... it's too busy everywhere.
