i am not waiting... about to sign 3-yr lease for 2013 X5d. That will put me in pull-ahead program around Dec 2015, which means a few things:
1. Bugs will be worked out
2. Holiday discounts (typically $2500 cash)
3. Diesel will be available
4. Whatever features which didnt make the 1st year production, will hopefully make it in.
The other reason I am not waiting for 2014 is because I dont expect any good deals in the first coming months.
And lastly my current lease expires in July, but I am going to be close to 50K miles by then, which is then warranty issue and not much opportunity to wait an extra month or so when they will start delivering 2014 models to the dealerships... which is expected around August.
