Could it be some error on realoem.com?
It could very well be an error on realoem or info provided by BMWAG. I just thought it was interesting that the new rack is slated to begin 11/1/2012 and end 6/30/2013. This info on realoem.com could change in the future.
BTW, for previous posters, this 11/2012 production start rack is the 4th P/N revision for the F30 rack. Based on the latest realoem.com update it looks like BMWAG is pushing all 2012 and 2013 F30s (up until but not including 11/2012 production dates) into the 3rd revision rack (as replacement parts).
We shall see what MY14 holds. I'm guessing a rework like whats been leaked for the MY14 LCI F10 cars. I suspect BMWAG is tired of reading the magazine reviews for the F30.
