Big Dilemma

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I am planning to do my ED in March, but now that we heard about LCI starting production in July I dont know if I should wait few more months. I already got rid of my e60 and the e39 will be on the market in couple of months.
DO you guys think the LCI will provide significant value to make an argument to wait few more months? I cant make a decision and at the same time I am not the patient type. Thanks for your input.

+1 ... the moment you take delivery of the car, the next batch of upgrades are already in the works.

Is the updated steering for the M or non M's only? I saw some threads on that.

According to Scott26 the M5 isn't getting many of the cosmetic updates that the standard 5 series is getting. However I would say wait just to be safe.

decisions decisions. I just spoke with my friend who is a GM at one of the dealerships and he said more news will come out prior to my original order date. I really like how the current f10 looks like and the only time I would wait is if the car gets a major upgrade like steering update. The processor might be worth the wait as well. I remember the difference from my 08 e60 to my 11 e90 with the idrive and it was a huge upgrade.

I thought M5 is at least getting the LED lights? Nothing is confirmed though, it might even get nothing at all.
