It's all pretty much the same except for a few different options packages and the equipment in them, Navigation with touchpad idrive, optional M Sport brakes on the M Sport line

M Sport brakes are an option in the US now?? Interesting...
I also saw the press release about launch control and sailing. As I understand it, that means that there will likely be an HCC within the ZF 8AT, which would be awesome.

I'm kinda glad I waited to order... do you know when the first allocations to order a 2014 will be available?

We should be able to start ordering them in next week or two. I'm debating myself on whether to switch my order to a 2014

This is from a May 6th BMW press release...

Quote:
BMW EfficientDynamics: ECO PRO Mode now with sailing function and anticipation assistant.

Thanks to new functions for the ECO PRO Mode, which can be activated via the Driving Experience Control feature, BMW is increasing the possibilities of achieving better fuel economy through intelligent energy management. From the summer of 2013, all model variants of the BMW 1 Series, the BMW 3 Series and the BMW 6 Series equipped with the eight-speed automatic transmission or the eight-speed sports transmission either optionally or as standard, will feature the new sailing mode. At speeds of between 50 and 160 km/h in the ECO PRO Mode, the drive train is disconnected as soon as the driver lifts his/her foot from the accelerator pedal without applying the brakes. As a result, the vehicle is able to ‘sail’ without engine power, thereby also achieving maximum fuel efficiency. Fuel economy is now promoted even more intensively using the optional navigation system Professional. When the routing function is activated, the new anticipation assistant informs the driver of the ideal time to slow down when approaching bends and stretches of road where speed limits are in force in order to obtain better fuel efficiency. For the first time, BMW EfficientDynamics technology and BMW ConnectedDrive technology will be networked with each other within the framework of the intelligent energy management – with the effect that further fuel savings will be achieved in ECO PRO mode.
