ynguldyn do you still expect the x3/x4 to get the new dash in August this year? BMW issued a press release for model updates for summer 2019 and the new dash isn't mentioned.

Anybody know if the M340i merino leather options from the recent press release will be available in the US? Trying to decide whether to place an order now or wait for merino.

As usual you were right on.
Those x5 M50 upgrades are really nice. M dif and M brakes are standard...

So, we don't talk about BMW motorcycles here, which is why I'm not adding this to the top post - but have you ever heard of a BMW M motorcycle? Me neither - until now. Apparently, BMW wants to take their liter superbike, S 1000 RR, and make M 1000 RR. I mean, it's already a 200hp machine in a 200kg body, how much more hardcore can you get?

Looks like it’ll be December then - the press release says “fall”.

I wonder where they’ll slide the F95 (and F96 too?) in.

I've heard rumors of a power increase as well but everyone is saying different things.

Thanks a bunch

Looks like the press release was updated to reflect August production start

Not sure with Power, but for interior, I guess 2020MY X3 30e might be a good indicator?

I know this thread is mostly geared towards US models, but is there any information about when additional engine options will be available for the F40 1series?

They started with the base 118i and the top-end M135i, which has more than twice the power. That's quite a big gap in their lineup right now.

Early or mid-2020. You'll get 116i, 120i, 118d xDrive, 120d.

I know you don't post non-US models. But do you see any 530e Touring (G31) for EU for the LCI?

Not yet. But it's too early right now, will know for sure in a couple of months.

X3m is not at the dealrs and the launch is delayed till june 17? Why. They were made in April

I just noticed that the X5 50i and X7 50i are still available for MY2020 along with the new M50i models. This is surprising since, throughout the rest of the BMW lineup, M Performance models have replaced any similar non M Performance model. I wonder if the G06 X6 will also include a 50i model?

Interesting. I guess there's an exception to every rule. This is the first time BMW is selling M Performance and regular models with the same engine designation. Though in reality these are two different versions of N63 (the G07 ordering guide has a typo) with a huge gap in performance.

I wonder if they just made too many N63Ms and needed to find a way to get rid of them...

And no, X6 won't be in the same situation. Its full intro lineup is xDrive30d (non-US), xDrive30i (non-US), xDrive40d (non-US), sDrive40i, xDrive40i, M50d (non-US), and M50i.

You know engine specs for the models for X6?

Give them to Alpina and let them make a hilarious X3/X4

I noticed that typo too (typical from BMW USA, sadly), and had similar thoughts about the N63M3 engines. I would not be at all surprised to see the 50i models discontinued by the LCI or sooner.

That 30i model caught me off guard. I didn't realize BMW had four cylinder (non-hybrid) gasoline SUVs above the X4. Perhaps this was the case for the previous generation as well, and I just wasn't aware.

I guess that means there is an X5 30i available or on the way too, yeah (non-US)?
