New spy pictures show a facelift BMW M3 Convertible. Changes will be in line with other upgraded 3 Series models but the engine is not expected to change.

A facelift BMW M3 Convertible was spied driving in Germany. It follows cosmetic upgrades to the 3 Series range announced in 2008. Changes will include new rear LED lights as well as interior modifications such as a new iDrive system and pearlescent chrome light switch cluster.

No changes are expected for the engine which remains a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre V8 making 309kW (420hp) and 400Nm of torque. It goes from 0 - 100km/h in 5.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250km/h.

The car should go on sale in early 2010 equipped with the likes of a 6-speed manual transmission (7-speed M-DCT optional), bi-xenon headlights, dual climate control, DVD changers and a full leather interior sold as standard or optionally depending on the market.
