Our spy photographers spotted this black E90 with a disguised grille and bonnet and concealed tail lights lapping Nurburgring yesterday. More details inside!

With the introduction of the 3-series Coupe, Convertible and M3 in the past year - BMW's standard four-door E90 Sedan has been on the market for nearly three years since its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005, and it's about to get a mid-product cycle facelift.

Our spy photographers spotted this black E90 with a disguised grille and bonnet and concealed tail lights lapping Nurburgring yesterday. In usual BMW facelift fashion, expect new headlights with accentuated "light rings" a.k.a. 'angel eyes,' a new range of fuel-efficient engines as well as a reworked interior. In June 2007, BMW announced its action-packed formula for reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the launch of an all-new 204 bhp four-cylinder diesel engine with Variable Twin Turbo technology, and we anticipate this "138g CO per km" air purifier to be placed under the bonnet of the facelifted E90 Sedan and E91 Touring early next year.

Furthermore, the disguised front grille and tail lights indicate that there will be some modifications in the rear end, possibly LED lights, as well as a revised and heightened engine hood with a wider front grille. The facelifted BMW 3-series Sedan and Touring will appear at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007. Stay tuned for more details! More pictures on the right!
