Will follow X5 by a year. Also, it's boring, since it's the same thing as X5, just in a different body.

I just realized the M8 is F91 which means there can't be an F91 M5 Touring

I like how the 2 series chassis code doesn’t start with an F4 like the 1 series. That’s another comforting sign.

How is the non-M 5er a G chassis and the M version an F chassis?

M Division decided to use up the final range of two digit F model codes for their G generation-based vehicles before moving on to G.

As much as we all love the concept of an M wagon, it'll never happen. The wagons apparently don't sell well as it is, thanks to the invention of the SUV

The 4GC lives on! Is that confirmed?

The 4GT replaces the 3GT, makes sense as 6GT replaced 5GT.

4GC/GT swap last digits. F34 replaced by G26 and F36 replaced by G24.

so in other words, they will cram in, dilute down and "differentiate" the M brand further by making a M for everyone?

How do you get that impression from an internal model designation?
