Mein Auto: 2013 535ix M-sport
I think they would need to revamp the entire line to introduce that into the 550. That is probably way they did not do it now. The 445hp comes with better efficiency. It would eat into both the M5 and 535 markets. Right now they have a nice predictable porfolio distribution on the F10. If they intro the 445 now, they'd probably stock out quickly. My guess is 2014 with full line LCI. It will be interesting to see what happens, my guess is they will need to drop the hybrid, upgrade the 535 and 550 and leave the 528 alone. They will need to prep for 550 sales going up substantially with respect to the 535. Just my guess.
