In Reply to: early MY2000 rumors posted by Bruce on December 24, 1998 at 23:19:18:


: i hope to get the excel file that this came from soon...i highly modified the email i got to make it fit on the page

: NOTE: "specs due from marketing" is most likely when the DEALER gets the info and not us (the consumer)

: NOTE: as of now these are RUMORS, if you told your dealer this most likely 1) they would deny it (they wanty to sell you a car now) or 2) they wouldn't know about it

: my observations:
: 1. MY2000 production begins in APRIL on all Z3s except the M cars (this correlates VERY well with the fact that i heard artic silver production ends in April and titanium silver starts then)- 5 series in June, 7 series in March (BMW getting an early jump on having 2000s in the showroom??- smart marketing IMO)
: 2. 2.8 and 3.2 (M) production in the Z3 roadster and coupe and also on the E46 (but not on the E39) ends in June and July of 2000- might we being seeing the 3.0L and 3.4L replacements soon after??? i think so
: 3. new models- starting production in September is the M5 and E53 (SAV); in December the E46 convertible and the Z8 (also BMW is adding the protection models to the 7 series)
: 4. no info on the E46 M3 :(

: Bruce
: 98 M roadster
: 01 E46 M3 (no specs- well except that is will be 3.4L and about 350hp)
