One word: volume. BMW is moving over 1000 X1s per month. That's probably 5x the numbers of E91s they could move.

Everyone on enthusiast boards seem to be wanting a diesel wagon (not me), but whenever a car company makes one, nobody buys it in the real world. BMW is not stupid. They know americans have been brainwashed to think that they need AWD or they will DIE. So that's how they will promote this wagon. People will still not buy it because the wagon crowd is generally not the BMW type with the deep pockets. More like the Toyota and Subaru type.
It's not good enough, because you can't get a sport suspension in a Xdrive car. Why would I buy a BMW if I can't get a sport suspension? And no, the adaptable suspension is not a solution as the car still rides too high.

And actually, VW has sold a ton of TDI wagons. They come in manual too, but are FWD unfortunately.

European 320d can be outfitted with the blue performance option that will bring the emissions up to US standards. The power output is exactly the same as the 320d.

Mein Auto: X3 28i
Thanks, for the info.

Very interested in an X328i so looking on page 49 of the ordering guide I noticed several changes compared to the MY2013 packages. I have a question on the rear seat fold options. On the MY2013 the cold weather package gets you a 40:20:40 split rear seat but I don't see that split listed anywhere for the MY2014. Does anyone know if this split configuration will be available on the MY2014?

Option 465 is listed as standard for MY2014. This same option code was in the cold weather package. I am going to presume the split ratio has not changed. Although the description has changed from "40-20-40 split folding rear seats" to "Split fold-down-rear seat."

Somehow I think this is because the enthusiast boards are occupied by just a tiny fraction of the market. It is a small segment but most likely something you base a product on. If the lineup was based on what the enthusiasts want we wouldn't have BMWs that try really hard to appeal to more and more people that probably had never even considered the brand before.

Any reason why the X5 is not listed? I see the options for X3 but no mention of X5. But maybe I missed it. Thanks.

If it is not listed that means SOP for that model is still a ways out. These are imminently starting production.

Indeed. Everything that is SOP in the next couple of months has pricing already.

Has anybody checked the usual sources?



If you can't find it I will try to find time to put it together for you tonight when I am not busy.

Are you looking for the 6 Series Coupe or Gran Coupe?

Jon,

Thanks for the pricing sheet. Great news '14 pricing not increasing over last month's bump.
Interested in a 650i coupe for ED. Imola red/Ivory white. Msport/Exec Pkg/Lighting Pkg/373M wheels. Special order chrome trim not shadowline. Possibility B&O stereo ( working to find one in my area to sample)

Any idea when details of model year changes will be released? I know it will have the updated Idrive, wondering about soft close trunk and if they are releasing the all digital dash.

Thanks for your help.

Joe

I've just decided to go with a ED due to the USAA reductions, and will use a board sponsor - either Jon, Greg or Adrian as they are expects on the subject. Hope that answers your question.

Justin, sorry I didn't mention you. Of course from all I have read your a pro with ED as well. And I DO know USAA cannot be combined with ED - that's why my previous post states I am going with ED due to the USAA discounts being reduced (650 dropped from $6K to 2K) And Jon & Greg have confirmed the current $3500 discount can be used with ED as long as I finance $7500 through BMWFS
