we shall see.
The F10 came to market three years ago in spring 2010 as a 2011 model. As is common in recent BMW LCI history 2014 will be the fourth model year of the F10.

The F30 came to market in February 2012 as a 2012 model. Fall 2014 will come approximately 30 months after the F30 first came to market. It is EXCEEDINGLY UNLIKELY that the LCI will be introduced that soon after the initial model launch. A much safer and more reasonable bet is that the LCI will come as a 2016 model sometime between spring and fall 2015.

why do you think its unlikely other than your prior statement?
The F25 X3 came to market two years ago this month, February 2011. It is highly unlikely the LCI will be brought to market so soon barely two years after its initial launch.

In the spring of 2010 BMW changed virtually every model early to model year 2011, including all of the 3 Series models.
