It will eventually replace the N51/N52 I6 in all applications. SCOTT has said the F10 would be one of first - for MY2012 as you say - but BMW has yet to confirm anything officially.
Personally, I suspect that the two vehicles in which it will debut first in the US are the 528i and Z4 28i for MY2012. The X1 will get it too, but I don't think that vehicle has been confirmed for certain in the US for this year yet. There was some talk of another delay, so I could see it coming in March 2012 instead, for example.
