5 Series LCI - Order

Anyone know when the BMW 5 Series LCI be available for order and when the online configurator will be changed to the LCI? Seems like most other Countries, except US the configurator has already been updated.

If ordering, are eta’s for delivery a couple months after production starts? Are there usually any type of incentives then too?

Not much talk about the 5 Series LCI on here.

In theory, the LCI is available for order now. You will need to find a dealer with a configurable allocation AND one who is not scrambling and short-staffed because of COVID and has the time to work with you. The May programs are extremely attractive, and most dealers I know are flat out trying to get butts into cars before the end of the month. You will likely get more responses if you wait 2 weeks.

BMWUSA has historically not changed the configurator until the new model is on dealer lots. People can use the configurator to see exactly what options are on a vheicle in inventory, and exactly what the costs are. Not at all helpful if you want to order an LCI but that's the way BMWUSA rolls. Your best bet is to use the Ordering and Pricing Guides that Jon has posted as stickies.

There are rarely incentives on an LCI model. There is usually more sales support on the outgoing, pre-LCI version.

And there is not much chatter about the LCI because (a) not much information has been released, (b) there doesn't appear to be much difference from the pre-LCI's, and (c) BF is pretty much dead. You may have more luck at the "other" BMW enthusiast site.

Thank you for the info. I have not found an Ordering and Pricing guide yet, so don't think it has been posted yet. Too about BF pretty much dead. This has always been a great forum.

Also - being that you can't even order a 2020 5 Series now, BMW should change the configurator like every other Country seems to have done. Makes no sense. Frustrating...

I am may skip BMW this time and go Tesla.

Deliveries are supposed to start in July. There are no ordering guides available yet but they can be ordered. I've ordered 2 M550's for clients already

I have all of the ordering guides now pretty much but for 5ers...



I have two LCI M5 orders in the system though! Cool new colors, a few changes.
