I would again caution folks to ignore posts from other members who claim to have information about production or delivery timelines without any established track record for accurately supplying such detail.

Most of you don’t need to be reminded that rumor control is of utmost importance when managing a website where anyone with internet access can come along and make bold claims. Sometimes new sources of legitimate information appear, and we always welcome such contributors. On the other hand, when members make false statements, contradictory statements, or are hostile and/or antagonistic, those sources must necessarily be treated with skepticism and information must be filtered. It’s no different from how, as an individual trying to make the best choices in day to day life, one disregards input that does not quite register high enough on the credibility meter.

Thankfully, with such great contributors as ynguldyn, SCOTT, and plenty of others, plus many additional trusted sources who contribute in less public ways, we are able to provide you information ahead of other media outlets. And most importantly, we have created a platform on which you can consistently rely to cut through the rumor and provide the truth in a no-nonsense way. All this while other sites ask you to wade through their click-bait, sensationalized stories, botched facts, and rampant unfiltered rumor spreading.

Now, as always, keep tuned into this thread and this forum for more great G8x M3/M4 coverage. We are excited as you are to hear about the next development in the story.

Is there a new ETA for when we expect them to show a final uncamo'ed car?

Any major shows coming up, etc? Do we think we will get a reveal prior to the close of the year?

No. BMW has the 2 Series Gran Coupe and M8 Gran Coupe making their public debuts in LA. We won't see the M3 at an auto show until sometime next year.

At M Track Days last week I was told my a BMW Marketing person the G80 will debut in LA next month. For whatever that's worth.

Sure, why not? I mean it isn't impossible, so I'll leave it up to the individual to decide.

That said, if you told me L.A. 2020, I'd be totally on board. Of course, even if that turns out to be the case, we might see a concept (either M3 or M4) sooner, like the one they had at Pebble Beach in 2013.

They just revealed the new 2er GC so the new M3, 4er, and M4 should be next in line. The anticipation's real.

Hey, that's fantastic news!

But don't keep us in suspense - how did you unearth this little factoid? We'd all love to know.

Edit: Unfortunately the user was merely spreading rumor to get attention. Predictable behavior from this individual, but I wanted to give the benefit of the doubt anyway. Hopefully credible information will surface soon.

What he said was not an opinion and when asked for his source he was a smart@ss ... so forgive us for becoming long tired of these charades.

And more of a marketing/sales driven event so there are people attending more informed about the product road map than an M school instructor.

Enough to know the launch date of the G80? Maybe but not something I would make plans from.

She was introduced by Bill Auberlen (THE Bill Auberlen lol) as the marketing guru who could answer any questions on any BMW products...but you are correct, not someone high up enough to make plans based on their word. She was, however, emphatic it would be November.

Nice, sounds legit. Though if she represents BMW NA and not from AG I’d still advice some caution.
