I want to order an 06 - any dealers w/ allocation?

I am cutting it close to the wire here. I want to order an 06 coupe, but I am having trouble finding a dealer who still has allocation. can anyone help?

Dealers have already received their last allocations (May production). As with our dealer, I'm sure many others out there have already placed orders for their last few allocations. You might find one, but you might also be limited at this point to a car that is already built.

All Canadian E46 M3 coupes are now scheduled for production - no amends possible. April was the last month up here. Cabs go into May...... (semi hijack for Canadian readers........)

Nooooooooooo, I was going to order one soon . I don't want the new M3 as it will have a V8, the current m3 already has dismal mileage for a 6 cylinder. Not to mention it'll be more expensive than the e46. Excuse me while I go .

I can still order you one but you will have to get on the ball,I believe I only have a few weeks left before they cut-off any modifications to any order.

I am Special Ordering a Sonora colored 2006 with special tan interior leather & (fake)wood trim tomorrow. If you order an M3 over the Internet, Candace @ Brecht BMW of Escondido might give you a $1K discount: http://www.brechtbmw.com/home/index.htm , 760-745-3000. I cannot say whether they have any M3 allocations left or not.

I have seen quite a few low mileage 2005's on the Internet as well. I would be buying one except that I do not like the current color offerings from BMW NA.

KIT?

VR,

Ron.

Check with Prestige BMW in Ramsey, NJ. Ask for Kevin Paglione. I was planning on ordering one around the 1st of April, he said the allocation would not be an issue. Of course that would have been two weeks ago, but it is still worth a shot if you are getting desperate. http://www.prestigebmw.com/

...saying that the deadline for Special Orders had passed. They told the dealer that they woul not allow the leather color or paint, but that the wood color was OK. I was told that the dealer had tried every contact they knew of to get it OK'd, but that I would've had to order it NLT 4/7 to have it approved! Bummer! I am getting my deposit deposited back into my bank account, of course.

If I wanted a standard color, I would get a low-mileage used one. It wasn't meant to be for me...
