Like the subject says, any idea when is the LCI F30 going to launch in the US? I am planning to upgrade to an F30 but I want to get the LCI version.

Thanks!
Patience is a virtue. The F30 just got here.

Agreed. I would say the 2012 model year doesn't really count. Both the E46 and the E90 had their LCI in their fourth model year, the E46 for model year 2002 and the E90 in model year 2009.

BMW did a weird thing by introducing the F30 as a 2012 model. It would have been expected that there would have been a short 2012 model year for the last E90/91 and then an early beginning to the 2013 model year with the F30 in calender year 2012. The way BMW did it there were actually only six model years for the E90/91, rather than the typical seven.
