I think it's all about the expectations of making money on a specific model. I don't know the internals of this process but it seems like there's a gate ~6 months before a model's intro to the market where BMW decides if the market will take the car (by then, the car itself is ready for production, so it's not an engineering decision). If you go back in the history of this thread, there are several other examples of the same thing happening at approximately the same time frame, with much more mundane models, like for example the planned but never sold US F45 2GT or most recently US iX1.

It still boggles my mind why they cancelled the iX1 for North America. It would have been a good competitor to the Audi e-tron Q4 or Mercedes EQB within a similar price point.

It looks like the 30d wont be offered on the G60 at all? Looks like it’s coming close to the end of the road for the B57 and they won’t make a sucesssor?

There will be a B57 with SOP 07.2024 (they are calling it 540d but its more or less the same as today's 530d)...

Added some F74 details and the timeline for Highway/Motorway Assistant availability.

Anyone has good suggestions on where I should dump the info on MINI?

ynguldyn Do you have any information on a possible F40 LCI? We have been seeing camouflaged 1 Series prototypes on the road for a year now but it seems a bit too early to be testing the F70 – and they look too much like F40s?

F70 is coming out in just over a year, there's no time left for any F40 updates.

Just saw some 2025 X3 spy shots that show the M50i (?) - it has quad exhausts along with a charging port. Im thinking the next M40i upgrade to the X5 50e powertrain. If there was an M350e I would hop on that so quick - love the around town electric option with my 330e but would love it paired with the B58! So I hope this is correct

It's a conspiracy. Instead of making the same car, BMW keeps updating their models. Almost as if they want to stay competitive and make money.

Yes spookey stuff I think the conspiracy is they create a back log of orders they know they cant truely fulfil to make sure every last vehicle in the current model is sold , with contract terms that make it difficult for customers to pull out , before they announce the new model. Smart business
