Thanks for the heads up I was wondering when they'd get around to doing the GT...

Compared to the previously published order guide, it's missing Integral Active Steering and the base price is $2300 more.
NEVERMIND. That configurator link is for an xDrive 535i. The 2013 non-xdrive 535i GT has an I in the NAMODELCODE parameter but the 145I page is not available yet.

It's gone as a separate $1000 option from the entire 5 series. Now it's bundled with Adaptive drive and Anti-roll in the DHP package.

Ok, this will seem waaay out of place but the $1000 figure just jogged my memory and I hope to jog someone else's. See if your local dealership is offering the Ultimate Drive allowance for test driving their BMW's. I got 2 invitations from 2 dealerships within 2 months and went to one. It was very nice! Hot, prepared food on the spot by chef wannabes, beverages (no beer, gee I wonder why?) and a great atmosphere. I test drove a 7 series and a Benz S550 by myself for a few rounds each, going ungodly fast on city streets. And... I got a $1000 allowance to put toward my GT. Woohoo, can't beat that with a stick!!

My Ultimate Drive event $1000 said you had to take delivery by Oct 31. My CA still hasn't been able to enter my order and he says BMWNA won't be taking US delivery orders till October. Does your UDE have a different date?

Ooh, I need to find that invitation card with the details. But yes, Oct 31 was the deadline. I thought that you could put in the order by 10/31 but don't quote me on that. In my case, I was zeroing in on a 2013 model so it wasn't an issue. Of course, if any of you do receive an invite, read the fine print and clarify with your local dealership.

Btw, I'm guessing that I got an invitation because I was looking around Truecar.com, Edmunds and several BMW dealerships and corporate figured they had a live one that they needed to reel in with this UDE. Haha, it worked...

Its an oft discussed misconception in the Ask-A-Dealer forum.
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=692073

After take the drive and get your coupon, the fine print is there. The UDE is for new 2013 and 2014 cars that deliver by Oct 31. ED not included. Buyers of 2014 5GT are SOL.
