BMW has given the 1-Series coupe and convertible variants a facelift three years after their debut in 2007 and two years shy of the release of its expected replacement.

The main headlight units for both variants have also been reworked. They now have xenon lamps with integrated LED accent lights to serve as its daytime running lights.

Out back, the 1-Series coupe and convertible now sport an all-red LED rear light cluster like the rest of the BMW product line.

Adding more sporting flavor to the 1-Series model are the optional sports leather steering wheel with shift paddles and an M leather steering wheel also with shift paddles.

The refreshed 1-Series coupe and convertible are unleashed just after BMW revealed the 1-Series M Coupe. Given these options, which BMW 1-Series would you go for?
