Depends. For now they have their RWD component platform, but ultimately we will see if it is viable to produce it in a way it can fit 3 - 7 series(I guess Lexus is currently in this situation with their new RWD platform and the IS/GS), or if the customers accept the (currently very driver oriented) 2 series as FWD; then I could see first the 3 series go FWD (of course first top models would be AWD), and then the 4 series to follow.
After all tehre are quite a lot of rumors that the C-Class might go FWD as well, and given how accepted teh FWD platform is in very expensive cars like the A45 AMG or CLAs, I can see the thinking behind that rumor...
