Only speculation at this point. Rumor is bigger engine for the 335. New hardware for Nav.

I'm sure some optional features will be included as standard.

new updated nav is probably for sure since the AH3 and 6's and 7's have it already.

No. Just the NBT nav with the massively improved hardware (more than double the performance). The Touch variant will be based
off this platform.

Doubt that will happen immediately, that will take some time to trickle down as its a top of the line enhancement.

Are you sure? I'd like a new engine in the 335i. You think maybe 330hp? Or 350hp? Damn. And what about mpg? Ha. Yes!

I don't think the bigger engine would be standard or would replace the n55 in the 335i. It would be introduces as a M335i which has been talked about by BMW. It'd kinda be like the S4 is to the A4.

maybe, but I think its more likely to put the newer engine in the model that is more mass produced. the m335i will have limited sales, cant see it getting a brand new engine.

Price increase, less standard features, better nav? I don't know. I'm on the fence right now.

I think it'll just be fewer restrictions on lines and options combinations

Based on some finds on bmwvin.com (see: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=797907) it *may* be that there is no engine change for FY2014. Please commence buying the 2013 models.

Close to the model year change. So late June or early July for the F30.

I would say even earlier than that. FY14 cars start being built on July 1 (or orders placed then) - so info about model year changes will probably be out more like May or early June.

May is not unrealistic, but June is practically guaranteed. With some models, they only announced it the first day of the month that the cars changes production. So it's anyone's guess.
