The 3er Coupe (F32) will debut in the early part of 2013 making it's debut in Geneva. The 3er Cabrio (F33) will debut in the summer of 2013 possible IAA 2013 debut.
Ok so, the coupe/cabrio timeline is moved forward a little this generation. However, what was the last order date for the E46 3 series and M3 coupe/cab? Wasn't it right up until July 2006 or so, perhaps a bit earlier for the M3 than the 3 series? If so, that should put the respective E92/E93 dates early 2013 I'd think. Though I could see how the M3 last order date could possibly be late 2012. However, at that point, will they even bother with a 2013 MY M3? Its a big question mark.

The Chinese market 3er Sedan (F34) will debut at Beijing that April.

3er Gran Turismo (F35) ( 3er GT and 3er Li share the same wheelbase)- the new addition to the 3er family will debut in 2013.
Thanks for the info on those, especially model codes. So, any chance BMW will pursue M variants of the 3 GT and 5 GT (and 1 GT for that matter)?
A gen-u-ine BMW eff-eight-zero with them tandem clutches in the transmission and that dad gum sun roof on the top-a da cawr.
