F20 m140i production query

Hey peeps,

Just wondering if anyone knows when the f20 m140i will end production (as in the last month)? I have been looking for ages to try and find a production schedule...

Many thanks, cheers.

I've got 2 Dealers tracking this for me - and also enquired of BMW UK (Farnborough) 'Genius' chatline .... they are all tight-lipped about dates - and interestingly the Dealers have different maximum Lead times they can specify on an order ... apparently the Order System is astute enough to reject ridiculous Lead times, but wont default to an EOL date ....

Why would they stop producing the M140i this summer when the F40 won't debut until sometime next year? (And the M135i possibly even later.)

"F4x is coming July 2019."

and this:
https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/spy-sh...hback-spotted/
"Given the current-generation 1-series' recent facelift, we won't see its successor for a little while yet; CAR understands that mid-2019 is when it'll reach the market."

and this:
http://www.bmwblog.com/2018/01/10/20...d-nurburgring/
"BMW will debut the F40 1 Series in 2019."

and this:
https://www.carwow.co.uk/news/bmw-1-...ease-date-3558
"Third-gen 1 Series is expected to be available in 2019"

and this:
https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/n...ng-nurburgring
"Given the time between now and the 1 Series' launch in 2019, details remain scarce, but a 2019 Frankfurt motor show reveal is a prime candidate; it'll be the biggest motor show of that year."

Yep 2019 is quite common knowledge ... but pragmatically one wants an indication of M140 end-of-production-life date to be able to plan ... & not get told - "sorry my lover, all sold out..."
