pre facelift vs facelift

Recommended Posts

Facelift is "LCI" and came in April 07. All diesel models except 520d got new engines, the 520 got its new engine Sept 07, you can tell the newer engine as they have a silver cover on it. My 57 plate 520d is the old engine though, so dont think just because its registered on a 57 its the 177bhp version, it could be the old 163bhp unit.

From what i have seen the new auto box didnt come out until even later - have driven one and can confirm that they drive beautiful, nice quick change, similar to an SMG infact and nothing like what you would consider to be a "auto box" :)

Only Subtle changes overall....My favourite........."new light-reflecting edge in the rocker panel (side sill) optically

‘stretches’ the car’s side view".......??! lol

And the rear blade like lights are beautiful!!

The new style auto box gear lever was implemented (get a load of me) on 07 LCI cars, the new gear lever wasn't on the 520d until a 57 plate when the 177 bhp engine was introduced.

I have a 55 plate 525d msport,are these lights a straight swap or do they bring up errors?
