Regular X3/X4 will get them in a couple of months.

Can you clarify for me when the EOP for US M2 Competition will be? Will they be produced concurrently with the CS model in 2021?

CS production will have no effect on M2 Comp lifecycle. The EOP is in the top post.

Many thanks for your continuing flow of vital information! It has been key to my forward planning.

On the F36: Would you know when the build will start for the final MY2021 models?

F36 model year is July through June. MY2021 therefore will be July 2020 through June 2021. Right now I don't see anything that would suggest an early end to F36 production. However, BMW is under heavy pressure to accelerate its EV plans, and if they manage to get G26 BEV ready sooner than currently planned it won't surprise me to see the switchover happen early. But I hope to learn of that ahead of time so that everyone here would be forewarned.

What about the F34? There have been reports in the german press that it would get EOP'd next year due to space constraints in Dingolfing and plans to build electric drivetrains there. That doesn't sound very logical to me, but?

With the G22 m440 leaning xdrive only do you see any plans to kill the USA only m340 rwd? Obviously this piece of data would tell us the m340 xdrive is doing the lions share of the sales.... I can't imagine the biz case to sustain one platform variant for one market (albeit the largest one for this car) would be strong?

Both of these questions are hitting in my blind spot: I know how long each model _can_ exist but I can't say if that potential lifecycle is going to be shortened by external factors. For example, when BMW stopped selling F06/F12/F13 earlier than the original EOLs of those models, it was as surprising for me as for everyone else because that was driven by sales and/or Dingolfing constraints, that is the same factors that could affect F34 and M340i RWD.

In the case of F36 above I can answer with more confidence because I know there's a direct successor to the model and I know when it's planned to be introduced. There's also no plant change: the same production line building F36 today will start building G26 two years from now.

Going back to M340i RWD, there's one thing that makes me think it's here to stay: it'll be built at SLP. That plant is focused on the U.S. market so the models it builds can be unique to the U.S. without creating too much inefficiency in the rest of the system.

Also - as long as y'all keep buying it, BMW will keep building it.

I am very interested in X6M

I loved mine previous model and I can imagine how much better will be this beast.

I think this will be mine 25th Bmw in 10 years

I can answer this three different ways:

1. It will come from BMW Dingolfing plant.

2. It comes with the latest update I made a couple of days ago.

3. See the second FAQ question in the top post.

Few months ago I got the GO5 X5 for family and will replace it with new X6M

And YES, G80 CP for track. Will go under heavy modification on that one

Any specifics on LCI for F90 M5 to include live dash and iDrive 7.0? Specifically if purchasing in 2020, when start of production with these features would be expected?

July SOP. Order in June for ED in August, or, if you don't know what's good for you and decide to pick it up at the dealership, September-October US delivery.

Update: first hard data on iX3. The big news here is that I can now confirm a U.S. market model.

Have you seen the new m3/4 or 4er? If so, do you think the long grille works?

I don't have access to actual pre-production cars. Official PR is the first time I see new models, like everyone else.

No 6MT for G22 either which makes sense but xDrive only for M440i? Interesting.

6MT is truly only for M3/M4 now (I hope...)!

The M340 is only offered in xDrive variants outside of the states, so this makes sense to me. I'd say the USA M340 will go the same direction by the time the G20 LCI hits (if not before then). Remember, the M340 being offered in RWD for USA only was somewhat of a game-time decision.
