Saskatchewan M5 owner

Hello folks, just confirmed that my Alpine White m5 with silverstone interior is status 82, which apparently means built and released to carrier they are expecting a mid may delivery date! Can't wait!

Coming from a highly modified 335i and x6 3.5i I think im gonna miss the room the x6 had to haul my 3 bulldogs and the xdrive for the winter.

Might have to buy a winter truck...

Anyways just thought I'd say hi, and I will post up pics as soon as it arrives!

Congratulations, my M5 is built and waiting to be shipped I hope this week, the dealer has not told me a status just keeps saying not yet shipped. My car was built week of March 26.
I have a friend on the forum who had an early March build and he is seeing his at the dealer tomorrow hopefully.
Best wishes.......

Congrats. I'm coming out of a heavily modded 335 as well. Almost back to stock now, need that down payment money. Can't wait to put my order in and switch it up a bit. Let us know how it is at delivery!

Nice to see SK economy picking up! The gentleman who sold me my 1M says he is expecting a new M5 mid to end of May. Might have to go up to Toon Town to see it. Have fun!!

Congratulations, and I don't think you will miss any room from X6.

Just confirmed with the dealership it's on the boat, expecting it to show up May 31st which is forever haha

On a side note does anyone know how the 335 and m5 offsets compare?

Haha I went through this in 07 when ordering the 335i. Just gives me more time to plan modifications! I had the Vishnu chip for my 335 4 months before I had the car haha

Ha, ha, it's always winter in Sask! I owned the Kindersley CT during the winters of 98 and 99. I NEVER want to be that cold again!

I pick up my black M5 tomorrow. Congrats to you!

Odd. You ordered then you negotiate price. Is this normal selling in SK ? What happen if the dealer says $0 discount. In Toronto, very little or no discount is given.

I guess if you really want the M5, it's PRICELESS !

If dealer says no discount then someone else buys the car I guess. Sales manager is a good friend so im not worried about not getting a good price. More worried about what the used manager is gonna offer on the trades!

I doubt it's normal anywhere but that how it's going down!

Final price will be 111,814, so getting 4700 discount which is pretty decent I think!

Getting more excited everyday!

can't wait to see this combo - I think AW on Silverstone will be the cleanest look of any color combo.

Congrats on a decent discount. I guess when I am ready, I will ask my local dealers what's their best # would be.

Can't wait to break the car in and see the real power! Gonna have to make a road trip somewhere!

Also been looking at tunes for the car, wanna be able to run down my friends lp560-4!!

So far pp performance is looking decent! Hopefully someone comes out with a piggyback system like Vishnu had for the e92!

Well it showed up tonight at 10pm!! I camped out for a couple hours waiting for it to arrive!! Meeting my friend/mechanic at 8 am and he's gonna do PDI, then rolling on dealer plates all weekend and doing up paper work on tuesday!!

Maybe if I don't like it I won't buy it haha try and rack up as many kms as I can this weekend.

Here are some pics, it was raining out so i didn't get too many. Will get better ones tomorrow and some interior shots!!!

Congrats! I'm sure you will love it. From all the delivery post. NO ONE has said that it wasn't worth the wait. Be safe they all say it's a beast :-)

DrewBert,
Where are you!!!??? Perhaps driving... We need some pix and some stories!
Congrats on the new car, and good luck finding some corners in Saskatchewan. (I suffer the same challenges in the Edmonton area.)
