2014 5-Series Order Guide Release Date?

Anyone know when the 2014 Ordering Guide will be out? Debating waiting to get a 2014 model or going for a 2013 once incentives get better. I heard last year the order guide for 2013 was released on May 15. Wonder if it will be the same date this year?

Are they changing the model drastically for 2014? I am about to purchase a 535 in the next few days, so I would like to know if its worth waiting until next year?
Thanks

No official date yet, some say July while others say "before the end of the year", the LCI will only be minor changes.

Production supposedly starts in July. I'm still waiting for the ordering guide as well.

Excluding the most definite EPA hold that occurs with every new model year. It happened to me. Mine arrived at port early August and I didn't get it until late August (~3 weeks additional). Still worth the wait

It's May 15th. How "early" are we talking?

Drastic? No. But a lot of little changes that I would wait for, including better steering, updated iDrive, etc.

I would also bet that the touch pad iDrive controller will come as well.

Yeah I saw that, I'm just a little confused as to why ordering guides and additional info isn't already out. It's now less than 6 weeks away from SOP and we know nothing.

Milking current generation for all it's worth.

I suggest you wait: cos the most important is the "reworked steering" without details of what this entails. If I were calling the shots, I would change its suspension - yes, I know this is not "steering" ...

Better steering and updated iDrive are already here. My 2013 has all of this (as compared to the 2011), including a drastically improved drivetrain and iDrive 4.2. The 2013 car feels 20-30HP more powerful across all transmission settings than my 2011.

Touch pad iDrive is already available in China-market cars.

The last remaining thing is the full LCD instrument panel (6WB). But (a) we don't know if the USA will get it, and (b) it still has the metal rings, so it won't be as crazy as Lexus or Audi concepts.
