Smile 2006 Paris Auto Show

Has anyone seen a press release or other information as to what vehicles BMW will be showing at the Paris Auto Show that begins September 29th for the general public? I believe the press preview starts this weekend.

Looks like BMW will be rolling out the 2007 X-3 and X-5, but no signs of anything else very interesting except the hydrogen/gas combo. Looks like the E-93 will have to wait at least a couple of more months, unless they surprise us.

Keep in mind there is suppose to be a "surprise" there... I am hoping the E93 is the one, but alas still no confirmation.

The show has not started yet, so fingers crossed. Also, they did skip the Geneva Show for the coupe and just released the pictures a few weeks afterwards. That also is a possibility.

Paris is going to be a disappointment for BMW fans, that's why I won't be going. They will be showing the Z4 coupé, new X3 & the e92, but that's about it. The new X5 won't be there.

Paul, your info is atleast missing two models. We know the Hydrogen 7 Series & new Mini Cooper will be there. You are correct the X5 is not confirmed.

However, last I heard there will be atleast one surprise for BMW fans. There a couple of ideas floating around (everything from X5 to M3) but I guess anythings possible. As with the X5, the 3er cabrio is also completely done. Eitherone would be "technically" show ready, and at the very least likely sitting in a back room during the show.

The show does not technically start until about 1:00a PST on Thursday and goes for 2 weeks. So we have plenty time to speculate about it.

A surprise would imply something we have not seen before, no?

So that would make it either the 3er convertible, the 1er three-door (possibly with the turbo?), or something else entirely new.

Nothing else would technically be a "surprise".

I think that perhaps threads like this are the reason I don't visit E90Fanatics or E46Fanatics anymore.

"Technically" the X5 is suppose to be revealed in November, seeing at Paris would be a surprise.

They could also try to pass off the 335i sedan as the "suprise" as its not planned.

Other likely candidates:
3er Cabrio
1er Cabrio
M3 Sedan
X5

Less likely candidates:
1er Coupe
M3 Coupe
M3/5 Touring
6er MidLife facelift
X6 (CLS competitor)
Z2 Concept

I'm willing to be it's the 3 series convertible as well. Makes more sense for them than showing a model already released. And with all the spy pics and such, that model would seem to be the obvious choice for them to surprise everyone with.

What makes it more obvious is that some of the shots are of preproduction units, as opposed to test units. In otherwords, it is practically done.

The car will be at the show... I can all but confirm it. Whether or not it is shown off though is another question. Its not unheard of BMW (or others) to bring "extra" models/concepts ready to be shown, and then end up not presenting them.

According to Car & Driver the E92 M3 price list was leaked to BMW forums. I am cautious of taking anything they say to be based off facts.
