E92 Facelift ??

Who knows what and when its happening ?? I was told by a dealer on Sunday it is this Autumn

will there be new engines / gearbox options or just slight tweaks to the Body work

I am considering buying a new e92 but would want the new one or a big saving on the old version ,I have taken what i think is a bashing on my e90 and one reason quoted is its been facelifted and now there are massive discounts even on the facelifted versions.

Damage limitation as stealers always have some excuse to knock your current car

strange that dealer would say facelift later this year... would effect customers decision to place an order but maybe he's just a bad sales guy

Doesnt the new engine have an all aluminum block.

It will probably end up in the 3 series but isnt in it already.

There is 'talk' of a triple turbo with 360bhp that is to go in the new 7 & 5

Production schedules at BMW mean that the new models and facelifts are usually Spetember build and so late september for launch (22/9 for E92). March is then the build change date for minor tweaks like engines and software.

Given the launch was '06 it's a possibility for the autumn, but no pics with dumbo mirrors yet make it seem less likely.

I dont know what to belive

I had a call yesterday form my dealer (ex) who agreed the offer for my PX was very mean ,but said his hands was tied as the used car manager at dealer now prices the px ??.The guy concerned has worked for the BMW dealer for more than 20 yrsso he has seen just about every trading situation.I find it hard to belive he has no influence or movement ,It was strange on Sunday he offered me 18k but let slip when the guy advised on the value he was looking at the guide over his shoulder and it showed 18.5,so they shaved 500 off book for a what was described to me on Tuesday a very saleable 2007 but 2008 spec car with 6000miles mint car and booked at 19500 and we would be prepaired to move if you are serious sir ,Thankyou mr Barry kelly @ Knights BMW ! .This was after my local said it was 18k and if i ordered new form Factory prob take a month to 6wks to arrive would then be 17.5

TRY KNIGHTS BMW STAFFORD VERY SENSIBLE PX PRICES

He mentioned there sales director was at BMW yesterday to get all the latest info on the new sales pricing ,any offers ,etc.He was of the opinion that the current e92 would almost certainly be updated this autumn and as MJH stated it could be as early as oct 09.He draws this conclusion due to the highline offer and big discounts on any e92 sitting in stock BMW uk are pushing dealers to clear them with very big incentives.

He said he will keep me up to date with any info as he receives it

I think you will find if your read up top i was first to say when the changes are, and since there was facelift pics floating around since the start of the year it is very probable. But as you say they will want to shift current stock first and dealers arent always forthcoming with info on new cars as its not in there best interests.

How did it go with that car you were looking at, did you make a cheeky offer or are looking at waiting to see the new facelift.

The salesmen dont price the trade-in the used car sales manager has the final say so there is not much they can do as the guy says his hands are tied.

Yearly revisions happen week 34,

LCI usually happen week 34 or week 10 not always at September.

my understanding is no e92 LCI until march, this is inline with the fact that they launched M3 Edition model.
