At M they are classified as "Volume Sellers" because they sell in large numbers. In some countries they sell more /X5M's ,X6M's than M3's.
Hence why Audi and Mercedes are fast-tracking similar SAC Concepts.
X5M and X6M even surpassed E90 M3 sales again in 2011, just like 2010.

The X5M and X6M will receive replacements under the (F15) and (F16)
Before that a special edition X6M will appear.
As others have suggested, selling a lot of a vehicle doesn't make it an ///M....well at least it didn't before Marketing and Bean-Counters took over ///M. Glad to see it is making you guys money, but let's see what you do with the new M3....a tuned n54/55 will not due. I have faith, but the soul of ///M has resided in its engines, with it's balanced chassis being its backbone. Hopefully, the soul is not gone.

Cheers,

Did you mean E92? If so, then probably. If you meant F82, then not before September of 2013, and possibly longer.

So If im reading into what he is saying correctly.

E32 would be announced around the Sept' 2013 time frame for a MY 2014 release.

which would put the new M3 E32 (coupe) at a summer or fall release of 2014. Which would sell as a MY 2015? am I correct with this thought process?

What do you guys think?


I'm playing with the idea of leasing a E92 M3 now. which would if this holds true. Give me the option to A. buyout the E92 M3 if I don't like the new E32 M3. or B turning in for the new E32 M3.

how confident are we that the E32 M3 will be announced in late 2014?

You mean F82, not E32.

The general consensus is that the F80 (M3 sedan) and the F32 (non-M 4-series coupe) will debut around September of 2013. The F82 (M4 coupe) will probably debut around March of 2014.

If the E9X M3 and F10 M5 launches were any indication, the F80 and F82 might be Europe-only for their first year before making it stateside.

Either way, if you do a 3-year lease now, the F8X cars will be out by the time you have to make a decision on your car.
