Same time as the diesel option being offered on X3 (also use F10 5 series as an example - diesel will be offered in Q3 this year same time as the LCI).
Agreed. Heck BMW themselves released official Z4 LCI photos in December. Here we are in FEbruary and not a nugget on the X3? Also, when looking at the ordering guide, don't see anything substantially different besides a few options packages. That, combined with the release of the new X5 (makes more sense to start with the flagship redesign and work your way down vs the other way around) tells me that at this point it's probably a bit safer now than a couple months ago to assume the LCI will be 2015 and not 2014.
