South... where did you get this information from? I remember Scott quite explicitly mentioning less than one month ago that production on the e92 M would end in 2012. See below.

The M5 will be available as it joins the X5M and X6M with the M6 Coupe coming later in 2012. This leaves nothing for the compact-medium segment for M Division. The same problem when the previous car was introduced , the M3 was just about dead and nothing to support the larger M5 and M6 models.
