It's all good...I felt left out hahahaha

Enjoy your ED!

Justin in all seriousness, I would be glad to work with any of the 4 of you. I am in Gainesville,FL and am thinking of doing a ED/PCD , so the location of the selling dealer is not a issue. Be glad to have you quote me on a '14 650 coupe once all the details are out.

Thanks, Joe

If you have questions I have one request, and that is to please post them here (rather than emailing me directly).

Thanks for your consideration.

I did not see the F30/31 information in the guides you included. Did I just miss it?
Thanks

i'm a pragmatist, but i still agree with this 100%. fine, you say wagons won't sell in the US w/o AWD. then why the hell do you sell a crossover with RWD???

it just makes no sense... the whole point of a diesel is fuel economy. there's no other reason to sell one, particularly in the US where it's a niche powertrain. why BMW, why...

actually... i guess the reason they sell the X1 with RWD here is so that they can advertise the lowest possible starting sticker price and market it as the aspirational BMW, sorta like the benz CLA. mehhhh.

I don't disagree with you, but put it in perspective-although the awd version of the 320d touring uses 9% more fuel than the rwd version, the awd still acheives 46 mpUSg combined fuel economy (albeit with the uber optimistic European fuel economy calculations). Point is that it is still pretty darn economical.

Again- this is a business decision on BMWs part. If their market research indicates a huge demand for a rwd diesel wagon then it will eventually be coming over. I'm just happy they are starting to deliver a variety of 'd

Is it still possible to get a 2013 BMW active 5 hybrid Ed for June? I'm just curious if the Eco and 5 series 1,500 dollar incentive will stay till end of march so I can sign and lock it in for 60 days. Can anyone chime in? Thanks

Hopefully will...I saw in the past that you could take delivery of the previous MY even after they end production.
But just FYI, you could lock in for 90 days using one of the sponsors... Jon or Greg for example, and then do VPC delivery. This is what I did last summer...all paperwork signed with Fedex, absolutely no hassle.

Any official word on the SOP for the next M3? Is it officially not until 2014 now?

228i SOP

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I see the following:

228i CP 11/13
228i CP S 03/14

If the S = sulev, does that mean in CA I have to wait until March for a 228i?

Thanks in advance.

S might mean South Africa?

No it does not not mean you will ned to wait. Not all vehicles sold in CA are SULEV.

Manual 328d?

Will we have to wait for pricing to know what transmission options are available? Specifically I was hoping the 328d sedan would be offered in manual, though it seems BMW is not offering any of their diesels in manual at this time. Such a shame. Also a shame there does not seem to be a 228d coming to the US. :-\

All the 2 series production dates include "Cp". The 4 series info has both "Cp" and "Cv" variants and I'm guessing Cp is coupe and Cv convertible. If correct, it would appear there is no 2 series convertible production planned for 2014 - is that correct? Will 2 series convertibles not be until 2015?

Correct. IS models usually come out as a midcycle update.

Well, I sure hope the new 435i has >= 320hp. Otherwise, it will seem kind of odd that the previous generation lower series has more hp (and is faster).
