Sad news unfortunately Getting another Gran Coupe just doesn't make sense right now as it under-teched and underpowered in comparison to the new 3 series or X4. If you spec a 440I Gran Coupe to match the X4 M40I, they are similarly priced with the X4 having a AWD advantage along with better exhaust sound, more power, newer technology etc..
You are actually in a good spot from some points of view..
You can get the 2019 x4 M40i in the summer, lease for 3 years then make a decision on suv vs gran coupe from the position of ownership experience in the suv... also will time out nicely year 2 of the new gran coupe and lease rates plus any random issues will have settled down from launch.
You may also be able to time out an order and extend your lease to get a 2020 M40i which I believe potentially will get the upgrade to the 382 hp motor from the m340
If you definitely want the gran coupe then just add mppsk port installed which matches the current 355hp M40i for power and exhaust in sport mode is dare I say a bit better than the M40i. Plus rebates on the 4 series should balance

Finally a new update after a long break. Like I mentioned before, good info is getting more difficult to collect.

Thanks as always, in your crystal ball.... Do you see options for matching diameter wheels on the M3? Or is staggered front/rear sizes the only way the car will be setup from the factory?

  • Some versions will have RWD, others xDrive; both manual and automatic transmissions will be available. The reports that it will be Pure+manual+RWD, base+auto+xDrive, and Competition+auto+xDrive seem plausible but I don't yet want to claim that no other combos will be available.
  • Pure and base will have 18" front and 19" rear wheels; Competition will have 19"/20" as standard (optional on the other models).
  • Standard equipment for all models will include M diff, adaptive suspension, M seats, Live dashboard.
  • Optional equipment will be pretty much the same as the regular G20, with the notable additions of carbon ceramic brakes (possibly M3 Competition only) and of course Merino leather.
Nice update. 2021 G80 M3 base xDrive for me.

I have received confirmation that the G30 530e will finally receive the xDrive version with MY 2020, SOP 07/19 in Europe (has only been available in USA until now).

I believe the reason for the xDrive version not being available in Europe is that the RWD version is 49g CO2/km rated but the xDrive version is 52 CO2/km, hence missing the vital 50 mark which just wont work in EU due to tax reasons.

One way to reduce these emission lower than 50 is to upgrade the batteries. I'm guessing here but could the reason for the xDrive finally being available in EU as MY2020 that they are upgrading the battery?

The upcoming X5 45e will have a range of 80 km and the upcoming 330e a range of 60km. The current 530e's 45km will hence be lower than even the 3 series.

Have you heard of a battery upgrade for the MY2020 530e?

And thanks for the info so far

No, though within a couple of years they'll get mild hybrid systems. However I'm not sure if we'll see any of that on our side of the ocean.

Will the G05 X5 45e be available as a 7-seater? F15 wasn't because of battery placement

Since they have already confirmed that the boot space will be 150L smaller than the combustion engine car due to the batteries taking up part of the boot space, I would say that there is no chance there would be 7-seater version.

Trying to be patient while waiting for G22/G82 news. I tried to time my lease so it lines up perfectly with the new models, but it ends in 9/2020 and I'm starting to think I may have jumped the gun

So, I was going to mention that X3M and X4M are just about to go public, but BMW seems to have beaten me to it.

Anyway, I estimate we'll likely have the official release some time in February, and certainly no later than March.

Read now the updates.

I'm really puzzled about the SOP of the New M3....nearly 2021 it's a long time in my opinion. I was wondering to see it by the end of this year, but probably, it will come at Geneva 2020 and into sales six month later in september. So nearly three years without having an M3 into production....I Hope that the new one will worth the wait.

There is always the ///M4. It's the better looking car anyway

And if history repeats itself, that'll be another year later after the ///M3. That's why I said i'm (im)patiently waiting for a solid update on when they will come out. I thought for sure 2020 since the G20 hit already, but it's like they just stopped at the 3 series and the rest of the body styles will come "eventually."

Minor adjustments to the expected M3 options: CCB on base, not only competition, carbon bucket seats (likely not available in the U.S.) as an option.

The new G20 is just arriving to US shores followed by the 340 latter this spring. With the F83 EOP 10/2020, I see the G80 release no earlier than 10/2020-- why, too many shared parts between the M3/M4. The upcoming X3M/X4M will fill the M3 demand for the next 20 months.

But, on the positive the initial M8 demend should have normalized by then with deals to be had. Just look at the current M5 non-comp incentives, less than a year into production. The M8 market will be even smaller. My F83 lease is also up 9/2020. BTW the G22/G82 is the convertible and G23/G83 is now the coupé.

Hi,

Thanks for this precious thread.

Any idea on when the F48 X1 LCI will be unveiled?

Do you know whether the hybrid powertrain will be the same as in the 225xe (active tourer) or could be an updated version of this ?

Thanks!

Man, I'm still hoping we (the U.S.) are going to get the X5 45e for MY20. My current lease ends February 2020 and I hope it's available by then...

Worst Case scenario I jump into a 6MT G80 for a few years until I can get back into a coupe. Best case scenario I hate how it looks/performs and have no issue sticking with my 440i lol. Maybe the Supra will help us get an easy bolt on turbo kit that'll tickle my pickle.
