Newbs to the always changing BMW, it doesn't matter when you buy it, BMW will have something out newer, faster, etc within a few years (or even just a few months!)...
Did anyone notice that these "roll-out" dates do not include the new "touch" system? If you want that, you'll have to wait even longer. And those that get the "new" system will feel like theirs is already "dated" when the touch component comes out...
Bottom line? Buy the car when your ready to buy the car, enjoy the car as it is, these small techno-details do not matter to the overall ownership experience...
