I realize I'm a tad early, but does anyone know when the 2012 model year will be available to order? I ordered my 2008 in early March of '07, so hoping at least that early for the '12.

I don't have the answer to your question. But what is the reason to order it so early?
Isn't it better to find out the changes and implementation week before ordering?
The 6VC combobox is a good example of why you may want to wait a bit.

The really interesting question is when should we expect bump up in power? I hear the rumor that MB is coming out with new engine for E500 which will have more hp than 550; also, many people are unhappy with 535 having the same power as e60 weighing 300lb more. And we do know that both n55 and n63 engines are capable of much more, so extra 30-40hp would not be out of the question pretty soon.

Mercedes almost always has more power than the equivalent BMW. Take the last E550 (382hp) vs 550i (360hp). I doubt BMW will bump the output for at least 2-3 years if they do at all. With the new CAFE requirements coming this might be it....

BMW introduces a brand new model early, ... then gives you a chance to buy the second year as soon as possible???

Stop fantasizing and prepare for the inevitable month of September 2011 before you see a MY 2012 F10. :rofl:

Wife got cold feet on buying a first year BMW, so we'll probably be waiting until next fall for a MY2012 too. That's ok though. Our ED trip in the spring due to schedule constraints was only going to be a long weekend (4 days), but waiting till the Fall we'll be able to stay a whole week and do a lot more.
