2018 or 2019 M5?

Hi all,

After a brief stint with Audi, I've decided to return to my first true love, BMW. I've been seriously considering purchasing the upcoming M5 and have gone as far as placing a deposit with a SA to secure an allocation for February delivery. My question is this: if given the opportunity, should I (A) take delivery of a 2018 M5 with little to no incentives/discounts offered and no knowledge about any/all possible bugs/issues that may need to be addressed on the first-year production run? Or (B) wait until the MY2019 is available, hope all said bugs/issues have been addressed/rectified and possibly save a bit of coin with incentives/rebates? Your thoughts and opinions are much appreciated.

Paul

Congrats on putting a deposit down on the new M5!! Super exciting! Is there any urgency to get rid of your RS7? If you are really sick of the Audi and want out, then go for the 2018. Regard waiting for the "trouble-free" 2019, I bet it will take more than a year for BMW to acknowledge problems and get them solved for the 2019 model. I honestly would be too excited and would want the 2018 model....

p.s. I was at Bimmerfest East this past weekend and saw a few RS7s racing, and WOW THEY ARE FAST!!! Great exhaust "music" at WOT!

Thank you, Matthew. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely excited about getting behind the wheel of the new M5, but as you touched upon in your reply, I'm in no hurry to get out of my car. I believe Audi did a phenomenal job with their RS line, but I am eagerly awaiting BMW's rebuttal.

Has BMW announced pricing for the new M5 itself? Pricing for options?

Not to my knowledge. This F90 launch is completely asinine.

i think the f90 will be a reasonly good build since the engine s63tu2 in the f90 is an improvement over the s63tu, which has has been tested and proven in the f10. regarless, you dont seem to be the type that will keep the car 5-10 years down the road so if anything goes wrong you will be covered under new car warranty?

Beautiful RS7!

With respect to incentives, discounts, and dealer allocation for European Deliveries, I only waited about 6 mo after release to get my 2013 M5 when they came out. Using a board sponsor, I was able to get a nice discount on a European Delivery vehicle that did not come out of dealer allocation. You may not have to wait a full year, but past performance may not be indicative...

First year of new model is a good question but I don't think this is something that has plagued BMW or Audi as best memory suggests.

Other than the dead on center electric steering LOL. I think they fixed that?

My M2 2016, no issues after 20k miles. My Audi RS6 2003 (was a later build but first model year nonetheless) but no issues other than the crazy poorly designed DRC suspension and the known issue with the On-Star battery (LOL).

The 97' M3 if I recall was the first year in the US for that engine (3.2), no issues on mine accept for a rear strut mount that broke at about 50k miles (took me an hour to DIY replace).

I am looking at 2018 M5's as there are a about a dozen or so listed on Autotrader. I suspect they don't want those car's sitting on their lots too long. My local dealer is pretty low volume so they get dribs and drabs of M-cars. Got my M2 out of town as well, but they still take good care of me at service time.

Mike
