When I ordered an early F10 (535i), my deposit allowed me to take a car allotment they had and replace color, options, etc. with my choices.

This is global; does not answer the question above - "... in USA"

M550xi in USA

Any guesses on price?

I read somewhere that the estimated release date was "March 2017" (delayed only a month).

My 2014 Acura MDX buyout was $33k and it was originally for sale for $39.9k, but the market is very soft now.

The BMW was the other direction - $40k buyout and I think it sold for $35k.

Not exactly.

The F10 and F01 aren't as related as, say, the F07 and F01.

Yes, there are similarities. But it's not precisely the same modular platform.

Both my iPod Classic (80GB) and second-gen iPod Touch have charging issues; they don't work in other cars' USB ports, and I thought BMW couldn't charge 12V. Guess I was wrong.

Yes, let's lay on the sarcasm.

I expect that a connected system will work for more than three years. Period.

Two 535i's (F10) - 2011 and 2013. Both nearly identical 22mpg - drove total of 75,000 miles split between cars.
