Question 7th on the dealer's M5 allocation list (US) - good or bad

Spoke to a local dealer and they are asking me to put a refundable 2k down to be 7th on their list to order the m5. Of course they have no idea how many they will get but they are "claiming" that they are one ofmthe bigger M dealers in the country, not sure if i believe that but any1 with exp that has done this before or maybe the canada folks, any idea hiw good/bad that is or if the wait would be too long

Hmmm. Let me guess the dealer. Does it start with an "H"? Are they out in the middle of Long Island?

I'm #5 on the dealer allocation spot. They told me that I should have a car by the end of August, but that there were no guarantees. I went ahead and put my money down (though I only gave $1500). I want an M5 and this seems the only way to get in line for it.

Nah its actually in jersey. 5th and end of august ill take that anytime. I wonder how many spots they would get on avg. I might put the money down tomorrow if i dont find anything better at diff dealerships since its refundable.

By the way when i spoke to the women at the bmw booth at the ny carshow, these people have no idea wtf they are talking about. I asked her about spots and she told me "oh mo people have been placing orders already and should be getting them june/july" i was looking at her like she had 10 eyes, no clue wtf shes talking about.

A couple of dealers have told me that they don't expect more than 1 or 2 (at most) per month and even that is unlikely until next year. The ordering wait (and having to wait for the options list) is really sucking right now since I started with my deposit early last year.

I've put a deposit down for a #1 ED allocation with 1 dealer and we've already negotiated the price a few weeks ago (not exact numbers, but based on a fixed uplift that the dealer wanted). I'll post more info on that once my order is actually in and it's confirmed.

So they are adding a markup to the MSRP?

Not exactly (but won't know for sure). We decided to go ED Invoice + markup. We'll see once pricing is out.

Take it with a grain of salt, but my dealer claimed that they would be getting approximately 10 M5s due to their special status as an M dealer.

I didn't really believe it, but I had to get on the list somewhere so might as well go there.

Start calling small towns like the dealer in Tucson, AZ. I was number one and took myself off the list when I brought a new 750I... There was only one other person that is waiting....

That's awesome you found a #1 spot. Southern California being the top M market in the world is a curse when it comes to this. The big dealers all have big lists already.

Anyone know yet if European delivery will come out of a dealer's allocation?
