I have not heard anything but I would imagine that the E39 with the 2.8 l engine would be upgraded to the 3.0l engine starting with 9/00 production--same as the sedan. You still would be able to get essentially the same car but with more HP. Soooo, while its true that this particular config may be due for a change, you are not going to lose anything by waiting. Hopefully your broker is just confused and not trying to put a squeeze on you.
Sale of the Touring have gone up each year so I doubt BMW would eliminate it from the US market and most Tourings are the 528.

good luck
