Wireless charging seems like a must have.

So I guess stating that an 8-speed Steptronic transmission is standard implies no manual is available?

My bet is a big NO for the upcoming generation.
For the first time an X3 and X4 M will be available. Who really needs an M3 x-drive?
Why an M340i will not be enough?

I am betting we will see it with the G series M3/4.

Hybrid should follow.

Indeed. Like the F90 M5, multiple drivetrain configurations are under evaluation.

This could be more than just evaluation: both RWD and AWD M3/M4 could be sold alongside each other.

Something like:

- Regular M3/M4 AWD
- M3/M4 Comp RWD
- M3/M4 Comp AWD

But this is all very early, I'm not even going to put this up in the top post.

Yes still too early for sure. It was rather late into the F90 program before it was frozen. The central intelligence unit changed everything and it was a no-brainer.

Been meaning to ask, what was meant by an earlier comment on the G11 returning to NA?

What are you hearing about the manual transmission option in the next generation M3?

Only that there's a handful of US-spec SWB 750ix LCI running around. I have no idea what their purpose is tbh.

ynguldyn official G05 tech specs here:

https://g05.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1503179

Say the B58 is B58B30M1 and the N63 is N63B44M3. So does that mean these are the first of the new TUs? I notice someone even added the latter to the N63 Wikipedia page, specifically mentioning N63TU3.

Yeah, just like I said they would be. M50i will be N63B44O3.

Me, being bored and able to use an official document as a reference.

I would probably put all of my confirmed info there if not for the sourcing standards (of course, I could wait for other, more "reputable" sites to pick up what's posted here and use them as references, but that would be cheating).

Ok right, yeah, for some reason I had it in my mind for a minute that the new “O” motors would come at the same time as the TUs.

I wonder if the vehicles that get the N63 O3 in M50i trim will also start getting the B58 O1 in 40i trim next year?

O1 will be the M40i engine, so only G01, G02, G2x.
