Of course Imp Blue looks awesome with any color as well!
Brown shoes on a suit???

The sophisto grey I think is too purple; the cinnamon to red. All in my humble opinion.

Does anyone know the answer to this? Looks like these go into production July 1st so how early would a US dealer be able to build and order one of these?
On a side note, once you get an order date and they start building the thing in Munich, how many weeks does it take to build one of these bad boys?

They build the F10 in Dingolfing. Takes about 10 days start to finish. Your dealer will have to tell you when they have an allocation for a build slot, i.e. Production Week 27, 28, etc. or they may not get a spot until Week 30, it all depends.

Of course brown shoes on a suit!!!!

My uniform typically goes:
Grey with walnut, charcoal with dark brown, navy with ox-blood (technically not brown, but certainly not black) or navy with walnut. The only colorI wear black shoes with is black. The brown always adds a bit of style and "pop" where black makes the same suit look a bit boring and stuffy.

I guess you could be right about sophisto. I've not seen it in person. People say it's very similar to DGII, and I've not seen much purple in that, it's more of a charcoal color to me. If it does have the purple hue, then I think you'd be ok going with a darker brown, but maybe cinnamon would be too light and clash.

my guess is June. My CA said he would have pricing in June. Once you submit your order, the production time depends on how far down the list you are but I've not heard of anyone being more the 2 weeks from getting their VIN. I think 90 days from order to delivery is typical. Maybe a couple weeks sooner if you live on the east coast.

Does anyone know anything on timing on these (Sweden)? It's SO silent around the LCI, you might start to think its delayed, postponed or later than we thought originally? Or is BMW just so good at keeping doors closed and people quiet?

The official info release for the MY 2013 was 15 May 2012. So I'm thinking (read hoping) we will have all the official info/specs/pics by 15 May.

I'm not planning on ordering until August, but the wait for all the official info is still killing me!!!!!

As I only want to get an auto I'm currently considering a 320d M-Sport because all of the 3 series auto's come in under 120. The current F10 as you will all know only offers the 520 ED manual with lower emissions than 120.

My question, probably for Ynguldyn who seems to have a lot of detail about the new engine.... Will any of the new engines 518d/520d Auto on the F10 and F11 fall below the 120kg CO emission level which is Band C in the UK? I deally I'd like a 520d F11 when I change again later this year but would be happy with a 520d F10 auto like I have now.

The current 520d Auto is only just over at 123kg so they don't have a long way to go?
Is answer to my question.. both the F10 LCI 518d and 520d Auto's will come in at 119g/km putting them in Band C (UK)... which is good news for me. as I can order another 520d Auto this Summer.

The downside is, this is only for the 17" wheel, so I don't think I'll be alble to get a Luxury/Sport/M-Sport etc.
