Heard a similar statement in mid-December; we too were visiting Munich and BMW was having an event in the "showroom" (not sure if it's permanently BMW) behind Max&Co off Karlsplatz. There were several X1's on display, and one of the reps there described a MY2013 US entry, post refresh.
So, unfortunately there's still plenty of fuel to debate whether "2013" means next year or when the MY2013's start production. It's really hard to believe BMW would wait another 1+ year to introduce this model in the US, particularly with the Q3 officially on the way. The X1 we'd configure approaches 50k, and while BMW seems to think they'd be cannibalizing X3 sales there's no chance we'd go for the X3 (just don't like it as well).
Regardless, we won't be waiting until late next year for an X1 if that's the case.
