GT LCI is coming ..

Hi fellas,

Look what I've found the other day:

F07 LCI spotted

I was considering buying a new one next month, but now I'll probably hold for a while.. As we know - the price of pre-LCI will be significantly dropped and this could cost a small fortune.. The only problem here though is that nobody knows when this will appear on the market :-)

What are your thoughts?

EDIT:

I just found some information here:

Quote:
The first F10 5 Series Sedan and F07 5 Series GT LCI (facelift) update prototypes have now been spotted. This will facelift the entire 5 Series lineup, including the F10 sedan, F11 touring, F07 GT, and the F10 M5.

We have information which shows production for the F10 LCI as beginning in July 2013, with deliveries starting in August/September of 2013.

Interesting article on PLug-in Hybrid powertrain and replacement for N55 in the 2014 LCI for 5 series. Also asserts steering changes for 5 series problems will also be applied to GT

Nice. I like the way they hid the BMW logo on the wheels. Like no one could guess it is a BMW.

So many "writers" predicted a Shanghai showing for the 5er LCI ... Some interesting details on the GT including assertion that sales begin "Expect to see the refreshed 5-series GT on sale in early 2014".
