Last chance to order 2018 340i?

I'm thinking about ordering a 2018 340i. What is the latest date one can be ordered before they stop production? I don't want first year or two of G20. Let someone else work out the bugs.

F30 end of production is in October 2018. You'll probably want to order 2 months before to make sure you get yours in.

Thank you! I'm also hoping to order one of the last f30 340i's, and came here specifically to ask this question. This buys me another month or two, as I was planning to order in May thinking that July was the end of the run.

There are a few things that I don't like about the G20 based on what I have read and seen, so I want to get an order in to keep myself in a somewhat traditional 3-series as long as possible. Here are my gripes:

Major
1) It's going to be much bigger.
2) It most likely will not have a 6MT option in the US.

Minor
3) They are going to a digital cluster, so no analog gauges.
4) White interior lighting versus the traditional orange.
5) No more stratified air temperature adjustment (red-blue slider for the center vents). I use mine all the time, so that's a bummer.

I do not know how you can confirm the removal of orange lighting.

Also, you can control the temperate via idrive that hits your face. It's in the menu now, just not analog. My gf's 2018 X3 is set up that way. (Someone people will never figure out or use.
