Very unfair. They regularly put out press releases like this:

No, the point isn't that they don't make updates its good that they do, the point is they do a poor job of coordinating them and communicating them.
Some examples:
You have an x3m running a fully different operating system than the lesser models
It's unknown which engine the x3 m40i is shipping with and different answers from different markets (maybe they are different but that goes to the communication item)
Several models that have the components but not being updated to driver assist pro, staying on plus despite pro proliferation throughout the model line

Look if you feel bmw is doing a good job of communicating with you as a consumer then that is your opinion, I feel it is not very good. I will use ford as a good example in this regard every year they tweak the mustang lineup (new model variants/ option changes) a bit and all the changes are usually pretty clear on page one of the order guide and in press releases. Not saying they are perfect but overall that's a better standard to set.

It did. Note the model code change from TS33 to TY93. TY93 uses the new engine.

Ok, thanks for confirming that. Amazing how BMW NA keeps getting worse and worse at presenting the facts. It make me wonder who in the organization is in charge of product information and how they manage to be so bad at it.

It's even worse than you think. I've just checked bmw.de, which is normally more precise and up-to-date, its build tool still shows 265kW, even though you can see TY91 in the URL, and any lookup of a TY91 VIN will return "B58D" with 285kW.

Wow, the disease is spreading!

Why B58D instead of B58O? I guess this four digit identifier doesn’t use the same system as the formal engine codes (B58B0O1)?

Right, because B58O would be O0, and here we have O1. BMW now uses a new sequence of letters for the four-letter engine codes you might find for example in ETK. This started with N63 but became more systematic with the TUs of Bxx motors:

BxxA - K1
BxxB - U1
BxxC - M1
BxxD - O1
B4xE - T1 in UKL models
B4xF - T1 in CLAR models
BxxX - any hybrid using that engine
N63B - N63T3
N74B - N74U1

What's funny is that Supra crowd now talks about B58C vs B58D all the time.

G 23 Convertible

Ynguldyn-
With an end of production date of 8/2020 for the F33, can we assume that the new platform G series 4 Convertible will be available at the same time?

Thanks for the help.
