That's _not_ what BMW does.  Check the delayed M3 launch; several years after
the 3-Series. And the world is still waiting for a new M5, going on three
years after the 5-Series launch.

Check their launch history and you'll see that BMW usually launches the bread
and butter (high volume) models followed over a period of a couple of years
by coupes, cabriolets, M-Cars, wagons and others, as the case may be.
