Just a data point - the X5M is now on Carmax's website listed at $66K; $6K / 10% over what they paid me. Someone will get a nice X5M, but it may take Carmax a while given one can buy a brand new X5...

Individual Colors **almost** always impacts the production schedule - as a rule of thumb add 60-90 days. Just going through this myself on an Special Color B6 for ED

The best and easiest way to get an exact number is simply ask the dealer - most reputable dealers will show you their ED invoice.

Yes, had several cars serviced there - and taken deliveries of ED there pre Freimann and pre Welt.

You really can't do better as far as service than Frankfurter Ring :thumbup:

My first BMW ED was in '88; wasn't offered a free hotel in '88 or the 15 subsequent BMW ED's. I did get a free hotel night with MB and Audi ED's though.

You may get some sage advice from locals, but I suggest you contact Greg Poland @Pacific BMW, Jon Shafer @ SBA BMW and get a data point from each of them... maybe David Aviles at Steve Thomas too.

AutoNation offered $59.5K sight unseen, so the bad ass X5M is now on CarMax's lot. Surprisingly, Carmax coordinated with FS and I walked out with a check for most of my MSD's :thumbup:

That's the way I'm beginning to see it too - I save 9 payments at $1,140 plus $500 on insurance between now and 12/29/15. Even at CarMax's slightly low offer of $60K I'd be cash ahead.

CarMax offered $60K; I'm thinking about it. They allow 7 days to consider their offer. If I thought BMW might enhance the pull ahead program "soon" to include M cars I'd be better off to wait.
