It appears that the facelifted (LCI, or Life Cycle Impulse) BMW 2 Series range will be revealed sooner rather than later – Bimmer Today has published photos of the revised M2, which the publication says were lifted from the iPad version of the Belgian BMW website that inadvertently carried the images.

From the looks of it, the revisions are of the usual BMW blink-and-you’ll-miss-it variety, limited to new full-LED headlights that replace the previous bi-xenon option. The corona ring LED daytime running lights, which were previously round with flat bottoms, are now hexagon-shaped – gaining a design previously seen on the new 5 Series and facelifted 4 Series.

The tail lights have also been revised, and now utilise LED lighting technology as well. Otherwise, the M2 looks to be unchanged, carrying the same aggressive front and rear bumpers, flared wheel arches, broad 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels and quad exhausts.

Mechanicals will likely be unchanged as well, with an M-specific chassis and a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six punching out 370 hp and 465 Nm of torque. A more hardcore chassis setup is expected to be introduced on next year’s M2 CS, which like the M4 CS should also see an increase in power.

Expect the new head- and tail lights to also be offered on the cooking 2 Series models, along with revised bumpers and interior trim.
