The 2013 US M5 and 5 series have it now, but the UK 2013 5 series does not. It's a matter of production capacity - BMW doesn't have capacity to roll it out for all models at the same time, so some markets get it first and others get it later.
Hi Jason, thank you for your swift reply, and for confirming my fears as to the non-existance of a UK release date. Arnsbrae's comment regarding September production for the F10 matches with what I was told also.
So, it looks like I'll just stick with my current situation unless things change between now and October 8th when my 320i xDrive MSport enters production.
