Is the G29 LCI SOP still scheduled for July 2022? I no longer see it on the front page.

See the top post introduction for that, in short: no public source.

The SONOS partnership is interesting, curious to see what comes out of it. SONOS isn't exactly known for their sound quality, better than average for casual listener, but they're known for their software so it will be interesting to see what they bring to the table.

They put out good quality for a small package so hoping that works well in the auto industry.... seems like it should be a good fit.

I just don't see what they can provide for car audio in the auto industry since their expertise is multi-room audio and that's largely done through their excellent software. I don't see how this can play a part in cars.

But still interested to see what comes out of this collaboration.

I'm not a true audiophile but do agree their main market strategy was the software. I have some B&W 600series towers etc for home theatre which are great, but still impressed by the sound range produced by the Sonos 5 speakers as well, just as good as any Bose stuff I've ever heard and I was only mildly impressed by Harmon Kardon in my F80.. the B&O in my M6GC has definitely been the best. Seems like sonos would sit closer to the HK or maybe between the two?

Like you said, will have to wait and see... definitely interesting nonetheless.

They will end up the 8 Series?
Including the GranCoupe?

They should have call it 6 and keep the same price range.
The Cabrio is too expensive and not very practical.
The Coupe is big, again not practical as only a masochist will seat in that rear seat.
The Gran Coupe is really beautiful, awesome car but victim of corporative greediness.

Still want to know if they will stop production for the 8 Gran Coupe.
If someone has more info, please share

My assumption is the SONOS integration is to provide access to their "SONOS Radio" streaming service. While I'm more a fan of Bluesound, I can see a SONOS user liking to have SONOS Radio in their car as well as their home.

Probably this - another app for iDrive 7. Totally forgot about SONOS Radio when it was pushed through an update not too long ago. Makes a lot more sense as they wouldn't have the hardware suitable for vehicle use.

Not really sure this works because you would need to be connected to your home network to play anything through SONOS in the way SONOS intended.

There is no reason to think they can't add a handoff over internet or that they can have a "continue from home" feature in the car and visa versa. Maybe BMW will include a Sonos app in idrive with access to all of your music services. The one thing they wouldn't need to include is seamless multi room audio with the car which is the part that requires the home network.

My prediction: Sonos will be just software so that your phone recognizes the car speakers as a Sonos device.

In other words, an alternative to Bluetooth.

So G87 M2 will be MY 23? With F87 SOP 06/21, there will be no M2 for one year?

And no X7M to compete with GLS 63AMG?

Yes, that's very common to skip a year. For example the gap between e36 and e46 M3 in 2000.

Surprised with the Sonos potential, I'd have never seen that coming.
They are good in homes due to their simple streaming effectiveness, sounded pretty good in shops whenever i've had a little listen. But, in a car sure is interesting. It definitely wouldn't be a typical competitor to the usual HK, Bose, B&W, B&O's, found the automotive world.

This is BMW's entry to cover that sliver of the market.
