That is the way it was with the E60, so all you bargain hunters will have to wait about 3 years for ED. Or you can have a friendly dealership to work with.

I think that's the case anyway, regardless. You negotiate an agreeable price. Supply and Demand. I don't think it has anything to do with the friendliness of the dealership - it comes down to how much you want the car, and how much they want your business.

The E39 was the same too; but I was told yesterday I could do an M5 ED in July so I took the slot. The M5's are being held back for a couple of technical reasons and will be MY13. M6 verts are to be available first but I've already got an F12 in my garage - the M5 will be good company for the vert!

I took a deposit based on an email from BMWNA that I received stating they would be available. This was just a couple of weeks ago.

That's good enough for me.

I think you might want to check again, I believe that something may have changed. I was told the same thing by my dealer 2 weeks ago and then some new information became available.

My information was as of 3/2 from a dealer/CA who has done hundreds of ED's - and 3 of my own Mx ED's. If he tells me I can pick it up in Munich at the end of July I feel pretty good about it. If you're really interested in the M5 you might contact your dealer and get a delivery position.

At this point, I was only told that 640i Gran Coupes would have to originate from center allocation. As for M5's and M6's, I'm curious to find out. I'll ask for sure since July is the first production month for both models.

Still, I wouldn't be surprised if BMW changes it to a center allocated basis for ordering.

Adrian - if they are available without coming out of dealer allocations with ED pricing we are looking forward to another ED end of July. The 550 is nice but after getting used to M cars everything else is just too normal

Everybody - I can't recommend Adrian enough - after 2 EDs that were flawless. Rest assured you will get the best possible value if you chose him as your client advisor.

Thanks, Stavrs. You're too kind. And it's always been a pleasure working with you.

Unfortunately, the M5 will have to originate from dealer allocation.

You mean the Z4 M Coupe or the 1 Series M. I think you mean the 1 Series M. If so, yes, they had to originate from dealer allocation.

Ouch Adrian! So that means no ED discount right? Is this certain or things can change in the next couple of months?

If Adrian really likes you, as my dealer did on the E60 M5, he will give you a discount just not the same as normal ED discount. It changed to normal ED 2 1/2 years after I did ED with mine. New M5 is just too large to contemplate.

Is there ED discount (lower MSRP) if the dealer is willing to do ED for m5?
Thanks in advance.

M funf - I know. My first 2008 M3 was ED but came off normal dealer allocation without ED discount - still with Adrian.

I have an F10 550 now so the m5 is the most obvious way to go.

Thanks in advance.
It will be whatever you can negotiate with your dealer. I negotiated a good deal on mine (xxxx over invoice) for late July ED, but the pricing hasn't been announced yet. If you really want one for ED, get to your dealer soon and cut a deal.

I wholeheartedly agree with the above statement about Adrian. I highly recommend him. Outstanding service and a great value.

What a bummer...



I had hoped it wasn't too good to be true... Bimmerfest members ought to at least be eligible for a few extra allocations since we helped sell so many 750iAH's through this forum...
