I took European Delivery of 3-series convertibles in 2001 (330ci?) and 2007 (335i) when these were available only in RWD. (I highly recommend Euro Delivery at the new BMW Welt, btw) I'm ready to do this again if the convertible is available in AWD. I'm Denver resident and AWD makes this a 12-mo. car here.

My local dealer can't even confirm AWD for the 4-series convertible :dodgy:, but I see forum members ordering or expecting 428ix? Does anyone have info on if/when AWD 428 and 435 convertibles will be available, and when available for Euro Delivery?

I'm answering my own inquiry? :dodgy:
BMW Customer Relations, like my dealer, claimed no AWD 4 series convertible. Together they must star on the BMW Sales Prevention Team. I found an October press release from BMW announcing AWD in 428i convert, with 435 convert to be RWD "at launch"...suggesting maybe later?

The 428i Convertible will be offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or with optional xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, while the 435i Convertible will be available at launch with rear wheel drive.

Complete press release can be found here:

Below from BMW Customer Relations:
