Yes they are, but my target was E36 and E46 and I was more interested in cars that did not make it into production, not future cars. However they are new models that are in the [A-Z][A-Z]\d{5} range.
PM me your email, I'll send you my db dump.

Don't know how accurate this is but I just got news from a BMW dealer that the 4-series will begin production July, 2013. Thoughts ?

That is correct, production begins in July, as we've been saying:

yup

its called the n55hf. its in the 740, and the 135 coupe and m135 f20 as well

one would assume if they followed the new naming scheme, that we'll get the n55 in the 435i, the n55hf in the m435 if they release it (to replace 335is) and that will be that.

they know they will sell, and its simple. i'm going to figure this simplest explanation is the most likely occams razor and all.

Makes sense. Those will be premium vehicles worthy of a new motor.

Technically speaking, the N55 is more advanced than the N54...that engine is long gone once the 335is/135is/etc are out of prod.

That production date is for a prototype/demo/mule car. Not consumer production.

Minor correction - the 135is uses the N55, it is the Z4 35i and 35is models that still use the N54 (in addition to the 335is as you say).

Your conclusion is spot on though; once the models that currently use the N54 go away so too will that engine. The B68 and S55 will be along soon to make people forget all about the N55 though. It won't be missed for long.

Not sure what you mean? You realize that BMW might build dozens of demo/prototype cars, and we may only see/photograph a handful?
