Does anyone have definitive information on when the new 3 Series convertible will become available in North America ?? The latest Roundel reports production of the current 3 Series will end in October 2011. One would expect the 2012 sedan and coupe would go into production shortly thereafter, followed by the convertible. There is speculation amoung some U.S. dealers that the car will be introduced during the Summer Olympics next year. Others claim it will be in early spring 2012. Any insight wlll be appreciated.
