Nice looking ///M sir. The de-badged look is starting to grow on me.

The wait once the car got stateside was definitely the worst part. I took re-delivery on my ///M late January at Steve Thomas.

Yup, took delivery 12/1 and full tank of gas in the M5. Wasnt the case on my first ED (late 2011). Think I had less than a quarter tank that time.

BMW actually picks up the second monthly payment (and adjusts the Money Factor to reflect that).

In both of my ED's, the first payment was included in my amount due at signing.

:yikes: WOW nice color combo. I also went for Amaro Brown in my M5. Great choice.

I assume you had to special order that due to the Individual Leather and Paint Color?
