There were also "confirmed rumors" the new X3 was coming early and even though it needs to come early it's not. I see no reason for BMW to alter their seven year model cycle for the 3er.

Think about it - the facelift is just now coming for the coupes and 'verts as 2011 models. BMW brings coupes and 'verts one year after sedans and tourings. If they brought the F30 next year (2011) as a 2012 model and then brought the coupes and 'verts the next year (2012) as 2013 models they would get only two years out of the E92/93 facelift. They're not going to do that.

The F30 will come out some time between the spring and fall of 2012 as a 2013 model.

Honestly, I cannot understand why the mods even created this sub-forum.
