Smile I join the M3-> M5 club

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just cannot pass the invoice pricing and the incentives on the M5 (not the mention the 61% residual). I'm paying 1100 for a 120k car whereas the 80k M3 would cost me 1060. Just does not make sense and M5 is a much better car all around (at least for my use case as I have a wife and kids and don't track my car much often).

I have submitted my order and waiting for production number.

I'm still going to hang around here and most likely will pick up an LCI + ZCP M3 in 3 years when my M5 lease is up and M3 is selling in discount. I hope the M3/M4 works out for people who are sticking around.

Thanks.

NICE! I am in the club! The general sales manager at my dealership talked me off the M4 list about 4 weeks ago for various reasons (specifically because of what a bad deal it would be). My $104K LCI M5 is on its way to the port of exit in Germany now, completed production on March 1. $999 per month with less than 4K out of pocket (multiple securities, no cap cost reduction), 36m/12K miles including $1000 back from CCA! Also paid the last 3 payments on my current 550 with the pull ahead. No brainer deal! I RULE

M4 LCI, see you in 3 years! Until then........

It still has 3.5 years left, so it's right in the middle. MY2017 will be last one.

I think we'll see a lot more people doing this given the disparity in lease costs.

Base M3 with no packages or options was around 900/month. With exec and 20" wheels, it's 970/month.

If I wasn't buying, I would definitely consider the M5. Hopefully they will have similar deals in 3-4 years

Wow, somebody moved the thread to the M5 forum. Looks like nobody wants to see anything slightly negative about M3 or M3 sales. We can't even say M5 is a better deal than M3. Geez.

Only problem I see is F10 borders on old 7 series in size. F80 is close to my old E60 in size. Going from E60 to E90 was like stepping a sports car again.

I test drove the M5, it doesn't feel big at all. It's an amazing car. I wouldn't get hang up on the size so much. The old cars were small to begin with.

No I doubt that. Remember the M5 production ends when the 550i production ends. Then there will be a gap until the next 5 chassis is made into next gen M5.

I think 2 production years left for the F10 chassis. 2016 will be last one.
