Well, as typicaly, a bit of both. Nothing is actually "confirmed" until BMW makes a public announcement. Even if BMW has firm plans, they could change them for any number of reasons between now and then.

I've heard it from multiple sources, including my Sales guy who, over the years, seems to have accurate information.

So my personal confidence that BMW is planning to launch the 2011 MY in March with a facelift is about 90%, and about 80% that they actually do it with that timing.

There are other rumors that the twin-turbo gasoline engine might also become available at that time, but that is more of a speculation, with my personal probability of that happening at about 60%

The 2010 models are being delivered now, mine is schedule to start production in the next few weeks, I think. I base this on a 4 to 6 week lead time, according to the dealer and the regional BMW rep. I can see it in the system, but the status is '111' or 'ordered'. It needs to move along faster!

Production number is 7457633, which began life as an already ordered dealer allocation for a Vermillion Red/Beige Letherette stripper (no options). Order hasn't been updated yet to show all the options and differenct paint/exterior choices, I am told this will happen soon.

I'm debating on taking a 2010 or waiting on the 2011. The delay on the 2010, plus the early 2011 make it a valuable conversation for me. I do find it odd that BMW would have such an early release after a semi-late one. Maybe they aren't making many 2010s?

Did you take any of the options?
I am going to wait and see if I keep the car past the warranty before purchasing the extended warranty (I am told I can do it later).
I have never lost a key (I am told they are EXPENSIVE!)
I garage my car and live in a very safe, small suburban town and work from home (ie, passing on the Lo Jack, as nice as it is)
I have bent a few wheels on my 535i this summer alone. Hmmm.
I can't remember ever getting a ding on my car.
I have heard that the clear bra is really great for snow belt states (I now live in one...). Anyone have any experience with this?
Simonize...uh, no.

Thanks for the list, I have to go sign the finance contract one day this week and I forgot they always hit you with this stuff.

I have 'til next week to decide. The extended maintenance can be purchased any time during the 1st 4 years......I'll likely wait on this. I live in Walpole, so I'm on 128 alot, and I fear for both the tires, and the leading edge getting too much road debris........I'll shop around for the clear bra locally, as I also plan to get rear windows tinted...... still pondering the tire/wheel insurance.

the paintless dent removal sounds interesting, but I think I'll pass.

No-Jack, No Simonize, I've never lost my phone, nor my keys, but do they offer coverage for sunglasses ?

I'm a full time single dad, how about coverage for losing my mind?

Sucker play, especially now. See how your brakes are at 49,900 miles and decide then. Indeed if you use an indy, the cost for all maintenance should be well under 2500. I've seen extended maitenance as low as 1495, but this was a while ago

This is NOT "real BMW" coverage, right? Only plan BMW has is OOP. Beware of the term "warranty like"... definitely want to shop this, and you can up to 50k miles

Usual caveats apply: does the wheel need to be damaged to where it 'won't hold air' or is just bent OK? Is this really a "BMW Plan"?

Pay the $50-75 per dent yourself!

I'd get a clear bra- just find an indy (which is what the dealer does anyway)

The BMW tire/wheel plan was their brochure, as was the BMW extended vehicle protection. They also had BMW GAP insurance to cover what insurance doesn't.
All these brochures were dated 7/09.

The other was dentwizard.com..........why wouldn't you trust a Wizard?

Anyone familiar with how PCD works with a MA registered vehicle?
I kept the plates from my 535i because they had a low number. Can I just have the dealer register the car before I pick it up and bring my plates and registration with me?
Or do we have to get temporary registration from SC?
Just curious as to how this works.

I've never heard of any BMW plan except the OOP which is the CPO coverage to 6/100k. I *have* seen aftermarket plans with the dealer's name and logo printed on the brochure. Do insist on an actual copy of the policy or 'sample policy'... a legal requirement in some states.

Wizard?? Why didn't you say so? Of course I trust wizzers.

You will bring plates to SC with you. I don't know about your state. Here we have to have a temp tag until the new tags arrive. The dealership gives them to you prior to your departure for SC and you hand them to the delivery team there who will install them for you.

FYI the cost of the maintenance for the dealer on a diesel is closer to 2100. You can purchase it right now for $300 off from BMW of Annapolis for 2195 (-300) till 10/31.

Why on earth would a new BMW (with Premium Pkg) need LoJack? You already have stolen vehicle recovery...
