When is the LCI F30 coming out

Hi everyone..

Like the subject says, any idea when is the LCI F30 going to launch in the US? I am planning to upgrade to an F30 but I want to get the LCI version.

Thanks!

Your going to be waiting a while. Long enough to where I would get a 3 year lease first.

The car itself is not even a year old. LCI is after 3 years. So yeah.

Model year 2016 because MY2015 will start in less than 18 months... that is too soon for an LCI, considering the F30 has only been available for sale for 12 months. 12 months + 18 months is too early for any BMW LCI. Most BMW LCIs are in the 5th model year of the 7 year cycle.

Thanks for the advice guys.. My 2009 E90 has 70K miles and I am thinking to lease the F30 for 3 years or so and then buy the LCI F30 model when its out.. do you think that's a good idea or should I stick to my E90 till the LCI comes out? I'm unable to decide and need some feedback/help. I was thinking that if I keep my E90 for another 3 years I'm anyways going to loose about $4-5K. The dealer in San Diego appraised my car for trade-in at around $15K as well.

The E90's first model year was 2006 and the LCI was 2009. Perhaps the F30 LCI may be available as a 2015 model

Has your E90 run into any major type of problems or repairs? If it is still running fine, I'd keep the E90 until the F30 LCI comes out. Also, it sounds like you drive a lot since you already have 70K miles on your 2009 E90, so it might be hard for you to stay within the mileage restrictions of the lease.

I don't think you'll see an LCI before 2015 at the earliest. They haven't even announced any changes yet for MY14.

Nope, 2005.

BMW cycles are always 7 years per generation, and the LCI always come mid-cycle. So as others have stated, 2016 will be the year... FYI the F10 hasnt even had a face-lift yet.

IDK about other countries, but 1st year of E90 in the US was 2006 not 2005

BMW released the E90 in 2005, so you have to count from then even though the US didn't get it in 2005...
