Of course, they still love the car and it's definitely not a deal-killer; but why not wait a little bit longer and most likely get better pricing and better build quality (hopefully)?
Where I live(Atlanta), you won't see $100+k cars all over the place so the 'exclusivity' factor will be there whether I get the first one off the line or the last one. YMMV.
I live on the water right across from Manhattan - i swear I see more Bentleys and Lambos than M5s. The M5 definitely is exclusive.
