HMM that's even worse than. We know they are being manufactured now with old tech. If no switch in August -it means x3M will stay behind the rest of x3 models
- no I drive 7
- No Assistant drive Pro
- no remote start, etc.

Yes, it will fill the void left by the recently departed 640i.

US product strategy:

1/2 family of products - B48 only (coupe excepted)
3/4 family of products - B48/B58/S58
5/6 family of products - B48/B58/N63/S63 (no B48 in SAVs)
7/8 family of products - B58/N63/S63 (N74 dies with the G12)

And before someone asks if there will be an M7 next generation - I have no idea. But they really should, right?

The BMW X3M and X4M have their World Premiere in Shanghai this week.

An M7 would be cool, although the grill would ruin it, but what engine would they use? The V12 is already in the M760i, and a V8 isn't as cool as a V12, plus they got the Alpina B8 which is the closest they'll ever get to an M7. Maybe they should try and make a V16 again, so the M gets the range topping engine




They should also include the double rear intakes for the radiator as well, I'd love to see how people would react to that!

I figure they'd have the same lineup as the 8 Series - an M7 with the S63 and the 750i would be renamed to M750i to replace the departed M760i.

Since June 29th 2017 until April 10th 2019: 78 X4M cars have been at least build. this is what I was able to find out by writing down the VIN code of the car showed to me last week. Unfortunnately, I reached the end of the sequence and I have no idea which VIN are applied on new ones currently been produced from April 11th. Driver's guide for X4M is online.

Have you seen the number of X3Ms/X4Ms produced increase to the level you would expect for a new release yet?

So in April 2020 we will see the X3M/X4M updated to the tech, the normal X3/X4 get in August 2019 as MY2020 plus maybe some M-specific things, or will they get the MY2021 tech already, that the normal ones will probably only get in August 2020? Probably won't be updated in April and August, right? Any information available on what will be new apart from LiveDash/ID7? Also when will we be able to order them?

Yes, the current count is in the hundreds.

There won't be any significant MY2021 tech change so that question is kinda moot. As for ordering, it's best to talk to your dealer because it all depends on the order lead time.

They can, corporate can sell M cars without it though so they do it to save money. Lame, but I like the current motors quite well regardless. The ttV8 in particular is nice, bar overheating issues

So, I have a request for whoever has connections in the Supra circles. Please tell those guys that all that BS by Toyota engineers about 335hp being just the right amount of power for the car was just that - BS. The 385hp version (matching the US Z4 M40i) is coming. It will be sold in the U.S. and the countries not subject to Euro emissions regulations: Korea, Japan, Russia, Gulf states.

That’s getting closer, but the car needs the S58 + 6MT setup rumored for the entry G80 M3 to achieve proper recognition as a successful modern rendition of the Supra.

Guess this is the GRMN version that people keep talking about, e.g. here: https://www.motor1.com/news/249504/t...lopment-rumor/

Posted your quote over on the supramkv forums.

Edit: Also, we have known this was coming, the question is when? Do you have an estimate?

Months, not years. The First Edition will be good to show off but not to own for actual performance driving. Unless you're in Europe where the same restrictions as seen with Z4 M40i will still apply.
