Pretty sure it's going to be made in the US along with all the other X models, but I could be wrong

US

They are expanding the Spartanburg plant to accommodate its production. Because I believe it is running at max capacity right now, or at least it was not too long ago.

If I recall Scott26 said the F80 would premiere at Shanghai due to the high amount of "M" sales in the China market- just like the M5 premiered at Shanghai in 2011.


What happened?????

The F32 should be revealed in the off season, the F80 should show up in Frankfurt, and the F22 should be in Geneva.

I would also expect F10 LCI info any time now.

F33 and F23 coming next season too.
I was expecting X6M LCI in Shanghai

I'm surprised how good the active tourer looks.

i8 and i3 - these still look like prototypes to me. Are they really going to build them looking like this?
