Just found out that ED F10 M5's are now going to come out of dealer allocation. I cannot reveal my source but this has been confirmed.

If you already have a production number you are safe. Any orders placed it the last two days may not make the cut!

Shouldn't make a difference if we have it. I assume it's for future orders

Emailed by CA to confirm. Thinking the same. Could be another move, along with the lease terms, to keep the car "exclusive?"

Wondering if BMW had not anticipated the large # of euro deliveries. Not having done a 1st year M-car purchase in the past, is the number of ED consistent with the E39 and E60?

My 2nd M5, 1st ED. Maybe one of the more experienced/wiser members can add some insight...

They're probably just running out of production slots because of all the orders placed so far, and this is just a way to limit the flow of new orders for a while.

Agree. I understand they were pretty pissed about certain dealers offering very low pricing to pull in high volumes of ED orders. Basically abusing the privilege of the ED program.

I have done a number of ED's over 10+ years. I can comfortably say that I think the number of M5s going out on ED is unprecedented. Probably well well well over anyone's projection.

Lol, seriously thats what it's looking like, dealers are gonna be giving people 2nd priority behind U.S orders. Plus this 48% residual is just crazy.

More than likely for a while, or maybe long term. They did this with the e60 M5's when they came out in 05. The residual was so bad, they made everyone buy it.

Glad I seized the day and got my order in while the terms were favorable.

I'm not convinced this ED pricing was a problem though, my sense is the ED demand was still a small fraction of total orders. Not that many people fly to Europe.

Why should the pricing logic for the M5 be different to the 750i. The 750i ED doesn't come out of dealer inventory and it is a similar price of car.

Remember that BMW M cars don't come of the regular production line. They are hand assembled by BMW M. There is limited capacity.

I suspect they took a lot of orders, and they are maxed out when you also consider US delivery demand. They don't want the dealers gouging so they a moderating demand through lease pricing and limited ED allocation. They will start pricing more competitively once the pent up demand dies down.

I suspect this is the most highly demanded M5 ever so it makes sense they find themselves moderating demand.

Hope this is true. I was aiming for a June 2013 ED. But with the current residual and with the M5 now coming out of dealer allocations, I may be looking at a 550 M sport...

It may take some time for the gloss to wear off. However June 2013 may be a good time, because demand slows when a new model year is close.

The LCI of the 5 series in general is probably 2014, so a lot of people will be holding out for a 2014 M5 by June. This should lead to better deals at the end of the model year.

Not true. Beginning with the E39 M5, production has been done on the normal 5 series production line. The E34 was the last of the hand built M5s.

E60 was not initially available for ED.

I believe it was not available until 07 and came out of dealer allocation from day one.

I am surprised there isn't more outrage on this forum regarding this topic. This is exactly the evil corporate behavior which makes me so angry. What does this mean for the rest of us who were planning on an ED in future?

You will probably end up taking a back seat to US Deliveries since the dealers will make more

I am very appreciative that M allocations were made available to the ED department. For many many (>30) years that wasn't the case. Considering BMW sells M cars cheaper to the USA than anywhere else in the world I for one am grateful.
