Is there an official word, or at least some confirmation other than from a dealership, that the March changeover will be called a 2011? Recall that for the E46, the March '03 LCI M3 retained the '03 designation, while the 3 series ci/cic changed to an '04. While that may have led to some confusion, it seems like having an '11 e92/3 M3 next to a '10 e90 M3 would be even more confusing. This is partly why I had thought they might just leave everthing a '10 this time around. Maybe they will call everything an '11 (incl e90s) instead?

Not that this changes purchasing decisions much, except perhaps the resale value issue ('10 vs. '11).
