Hot off the presses BMW will be officially launching the car in the US on May 14th. Production for dealer demos starts the first week of March and those cars should be available for test drives by mid to late April. But the date that BMW will be officially selling the car will be May 14th 2011.

We also expect more news on European delivery very shortly.

Editor-This post has been edited to reflect Saturday May 14th as the correct on-sale date, not May 16th.
