2009 X5 Information?

Does anyone have any hints or rumors or facts for that matter about possible package changes or timing for 2009 X5's. I am about to order a 2008 and wondering if possibly I should wait. Specifically 4.8's

2009 will get MyInfo (Google Map integration with BMW Assist for NAV).
2009 will get a diesel engine choice.

Other than that just speculation on other items (TT gas engines (slight chance), new iDrive controller (slight chance))

As gas prices continue to rise the 4.8's will be more difficult to sell and hence the dealers will be more inclined to discount. Waiting might be a good idea.

I tend to agree about gas prices but possibly anyplace but up in the Seattle area. With only two dealers and our micro economic conditions in the Seattle Bellevue area. the economic conditions in the rest of the country are slow to make its way in the Northwest. Still no inventory on the lots of X5's and nothing to be seen in the future. But my 2008 Cayenne for a trade isn't getting any more valuable either.

Well, you could always come down to the SJose Bay Area where there is a plethora of dealers to bid against each other and ample stocks of unsold 4.8's. Your Cayenne would probably be worth more here too since they have become very popular. Just a thought.

Is this something we will get when we buy a 2009 navigation upgrade DVD?

My X5 is an 08 and I've already noticed some of the maps are no longer correct due to some recent construction - thank you TIA.
