Will follow X5 by a year. Also, it's boring, since it's the same thing as X5, just in a different body.

I just realized the M8 is F91 which means there can't be an F91 M5 Touring

I like how the 2 series chassis code doesn’t start with an F4 like the 1 series. That’s another comforting sign.

How is the non-M 5er a G chassis and the M version an F chassis?

M Division decided to use up the final range of two digit F model codes for their G generation-based vehicles before moving on to G.

As much as we all love the concept of an M wagon, it'll never happen. The wagons apparently don't sell well as it is, thanks to the invention of the SUV

Ew no. BMW's model lineup is already too bloated.

The 4GC lives on! Is that confirmed?

The 4GT replaces the 3GT, makes sense as 6GT replaced 5GT.

4GC/GT swap last digits. F34 replaced by G26 and F36 replaced by G24.

so in other words, they will cram in, dilute down and "differentiate" the M brand further by making a M for everyone?

No. The product list is exactly the same as it would be if they had instead decided to start off with the M5 at G80 and gone from there. The choice of codes has nothing to do with the choice of which products to produce.

Now, whether the M brand is more diluted by the addition of the new models this generation (which is really only the X3 M and X4 M since M8 picks up where the M6 left off) is another discussion entirely, and probably best for a separate thread. Objectively though, the real sprawl to the M brand is all of the new M Performance models coming this generation. Every single product line appears set to gain an M Performance model (some gain two where diesels are sold). You won't see this fact exposed by a chassis code list though, since M Performance models just use the same code as the other models in a given series.
