Exclamation Can't order 2010 750! 2011 Around the corner?

Writing this in Jan 2010 - I was about to order a 2010 750 and was told by two dealers "we can't really do that anymore there are only a few 2010 production slots slots left, you may have to order a 2011". Needless to say i was surprised since the 2009 had a short model year. Looks like the 2010 will too - and they r going to shift to 2011 production in spring.

I guess that's obvious because even though there has been no 2011 750 announcement they have announced the 2011 Alpina, the 2011 7series hybrid, and just announced the 6 cylinder 2011 740s. So my guess is at the Chicago auto show next month they will announce the 2011 750.

Question is, Why wait? if i COULD order a 2010 what will i miss out on in the 2011? Well i think we have the answer: the 2011 5-series is stated by BMW to be a clone of the 7-series in many ways. They have announced all the options for the 5series - and the only things that go beyond the current 7-series options are the autopark, overhead view (which i think relies on the two new cameras on the rear-view mirrors), and more aggressive braking for adaptive cruise control. So if the 5 and 7 r clones, then it seems logical that a 750 produced this spring must have the additional options just announced for the 5. So hopefully we get all of that on the 2011 750 - and maybe we get SOMETHING in the 2011 750 that u can't get in the 5 series?

Anyway, looks like 2011 750s can be ordered in March for delivery in May (dealer told me that) - and HOPEFULLY i will be able to get those 3 new features - and anything else they add to the 750 over the 5.

Is anyone else looking at all of this and see it this way?

Not sure if they will announce anything at an autoshow as there will be no change, wouldn't a press release suffice?

Press release is fine but marketing people like to do this kind of stuff at shows because all of the journalists r there and they can talk to them - creates a buzz. But either way, as long as i can order by 2011 F02 in March i guess i am happy :-)

I am trying to order a 750 xDrive for European Delivery. I have been told it will have to be a 2011. Since pricing hasn't been announced I can't order the car!

Is it just me or is this a ridiculous.

Is it because it is ED? Sounds really early for this.

Confirms what i heard

maxsar,

Same thing the dealers r telling me here (northern california) - 2010 750 production line is shutting down to convert to 2011.

you can order in march for may delivery. Very surprising but i guess that's the deal.

Well then, looking forward to getting my loaded 2011 750Li in May!

I most likely will also order a car for May delivery if not later if I go with European Delivery (I have trouble shortening it to ED given the ads for the other ED), but I will also look around and see if I can find a good deal on a 2010. It appears I have some time before I will be able to place an order.

Yea i think they will deal on 2010s now. But I checked inventory nationwide thru a dealer and 90% of the inventory i would consider to be "strippers" - u can tell if the MSRP is under $100K then its missing alot of the options i care about. Plus color choices r getting limited.

Another reason to wait is additional features which the 2011s r bound to have. I am ready to buy now but i can wait for May delivery - just 3 or 4 months now.

I am with you. Most cars have few options. I can wait. The lease on one car is up in May, and I have a pretty nice toy that is a good daily driver if the delivery gets pushed out even farther.

The idea of saving thousands by driving the car on the autobahn is just too tempting. I go to Germany a few times a year. So not only will I get to drive my new toy in way I can't over here, but I will save a lot on car rental.
