Any guesses on the first M2 ED?

Looking forward to the first M2 delivery report! I'm still a few years out from my next ED, so I appreciate living through others...

A M2 would be a fun car to drive on the Autobahn for your next ED.

I'll play. 60-90 days from the date the first cars hit the dealer's floor. That would be consistent with other M car ED's, save the F10 M5 when the ED door was opened almost simultaneously with domestic deliveries.

Well..... I can tell you that BMW will not allow the dealers to use their launch cars to be European Deliverers. I was number one at a dealership and wanted to do an ED. BMW nixed it. I am disappointed, but I fully understand it. I was told that their second allocation will be in June. My (our) fingers are crossed.

I was told that for MY16 each dealer will get 2 M2, and that BMW will only allow a certain number be ED's which I think is horible if you are going to allow ED then allow them on all cars built in Europe..

The earliest pick up date for M2 ED is May 2nd, so hopefully, a Fest member here will be the first to post about it at that time.

Go figure: May 2nd ~ M2. Lol

And why would this ED be any different than another ED? The car makes no difference.

You're right, no difference at all. Just two things have to happen. (1) BMW has to set a release date for American European Deliveries of that car. (2) You have to find a BMW dealer who will sell you one for ED on your schedule.

With dealers only getting 2 this MY it will be interesting to see what happens...

So it seems reports are mixed. My salesperson thinks no ED, the Sales Mgr doesn't know but won't promise anything, and rumors on both sides are flying. Anyone have verified and positive info?

I've asked my sales guy for specifics and a definitive word, and will share when I get it.

I've been told by by two different CA from two different dealerships that ED on the M2's are VERY limited since each dealer is only getting two for MY16. It's up to the dealership if they will do the deal, I'm thinking not many will do it and jack up the sale price.

shed some light on this subject, how many M2's is your dealer getting this MY? Also how many of them will your GM will allow to be ED?

My dealer is charging list, per their policy no matter how some other dealers do it. So my fully loaded price for the config above with all options is $57,395. Hardly cheap, but then again ;-)

It's not cheap, but then again, it could be worse that they add a market adjustment to the price..
