The BMW 3 Series is getting a mild facelift and AutoGuide‘s spy photographers have caught the first photos of what the German automaker is working on.
BMW likes to do what’s called LCI models for its lineup, which stands for Life Cycle Impulse. But in layman’s terms, it’s simply a facelift in the midst of a model’s life cycle to keep things fresh. The 3 Series LCI is next on the German automaker’s list but the changes will be pretty discrete, for as they say, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

At first glance, it appears that BMW will give its 3 Series model slight changes to the front bumper and a mild change to both the headlights and tail lights. But overall, when the facelifted 3 Series debuts mid next year, don’t expect anything drastic.
