Mein Auto: 2011 M3 sedan
M3 production end

Dear all,

When does the clock run out to order an M3 from the current series?
I heard that production will cease sometime in the summer. Ideally I would be looking at some in July, but I guess that is too late?

Any pointers welcome, thanks.

EOP is 06/2013 for the Coupe and 10/2013 for the Convertible.

I would say you want to get your order in by April/May for the coupe.

I think you mean EOP (end of production)
SOP= start of production

Not many more months and I can't imagine allocation will be plentiful...

OP, while EoP is scheduled for June, I suspect the date could change based on a few variables including parts availability. As referenced by Ty_Vil, you would also be up against allocation. I would suggest starting the process now and ask for a delay in delivery.

when production winds down there will be LESS cars and still more buyers................... remember no more normally aspirated V8 engine .. EVER... and there will be a least a 1+ year gap until new car comes out... This is a supply and demand thing.
