[FRANKFURT] BMW expects a triple-digit million euro gain from currency and commodities effects this year, chief financial officer Friedrich Eichiner said on a conference call with journalists on Tuesday.

Separately, chief executive Harald Krueger said BMW would make a successor vehicle to the Z4 convertible, a car that has been developed together with Toyota.

BMW earlier reported first-quarter financial results, with operating profit sliding 2.5 per cent and slightly missing expectations due to currency headwinds and higher administrative and selling expenses.
