This may also help others as they try to get M's.
I don't want to speak for cchrisv, but it seems he had already been working with a CA, as he mentioned he was looking at ordering some other cars, when the M3 lease deal popped up. His CA apparently had an allocation for the M3, so it seems he was the recipient of a helpful CA and good timing.

That's not to say others can't get close to the same deal, but it's just not as easy. Known customer and an allocation you can sell - makes it easier to do. IMHO.
