If the E9x 3-Series was selling badly compared to the A4 and CLKs then there would be a case for fast-tracking but that doesn't seem to be the case from the figures.

Rushing a new model to market is risky - especially given the importance of the 3-Series to BMW.
Out only a year? It has been almost two 2.5 years since the E90/E91 LCI came out. If you are talking about the E92/E93 LCI, then yes, it has been out only for a year.
