Is it a timing thing?

Again, just curious, as that's the reason I'm keeping my car for an additional year, and ordering a 2021 M550i next Summer...
A lot of it is timing: people coming off lease, totalled car, tired of what they are driving, etc

As far as LCI is concerned the info available is that most of the non-body changes happening have happened this year and next year will be primarily body changes only.
Not 100% sure until cars show up but it looks like 2020 iDrive7 implementation is not full featured. And not all the driver assist pro features either in 2020. I suppose those may arrive for 2021 along with the body/interior updates.

Looks like 2020 has no:

Reversing assistant
Drive recorder
Remote start

I swear I remember reading it would have the drive recorder, but the dealer info did not mention it. I'll have to dig some

Ok, FWIW this post has the press release from BMW regarding the MY 2020 changes and mentions the Drive Recorder. Oddly, it mentions Drive Recorder is available in 3 series, 7 series, 8 series, X5 and X7 - but it mentions in the 5 series PR. So either they should not have included that section in the PR or the 5 series is getting it and they neglected to mention it.

2020 5 series online ordering is available in some markets. I've not seen drive recorder mentioned. However I suppose it could come through the Connected Drive store if no hardware is required.
