Question Who's on a Waiting List?

Just got back from my dealership. Made my deposit, and I'm on the waiting list for the M1! Unfortunately, someone beat me to the punch and I have the #2 spot.

Another Euro Delivery is being planned for next year, except that this time, I'm heading straight to the Ring.

No, it's just a waiting list. Theoretically, when the car is released for ordering, some schlub off the street can't walk into the dealership and get his order in before mine. Basically you're paying for first dibs. It worked for my current 1er, as I was the first to place my order and one of the first to do an ED on the 1er as well.

Lawl, I did that before. Before you throw some money down make sure there's written agreement no mark up at a minimum.

My dealer doesn't have a list yet. They are not putting anyone on it until it receives official announcements. I am probably more ready to change towards late 2011, so it would be better for me to wait for a 2012 build.

I'm aiming for the first M1 ED, but I'll probably be beat since there's no way I'm going if the temps aren't ideal for a nice run on the Nordschleife.

i'm confused... you guys are putting money down on a car that has not been officially announced yet? seems a bit premature for that.

Your deposit is refundable, it's not a big deal.

As much as I want the car, I will wait until all of the hype is worn off and buy one closer to dealer invoice vs some huge amount over MSRP like most brand new M cars go for.

This was at least my experience when the M Roadsters came out. I bought mine at full MSRP used 1.5 years old. You could not find them new or used. Then a year or so later the market got flooded with lease returns and the price dropped like crazy.

This is the same as when the E46 M3 came out, and the E92 M3. But, the intial hype on the E92 did not seem to last as long...maybe the economy.

If I remember correctly people were selling their spots on the waiting list on eBAY and places like that for $1000s on the E46...hmmmm...maybe a way to make some money.

I didn't realize that folks paid more than sticker, ever. I have never seen my dealer slap extra amounts onto ///M cars, but then again, they usually don't have more than 1 or 2 on their lot.

I just asked the sales manager at my dealer to put me on the list--apparently I am first. He didn't even ask for a deposit.....

I've been on a list for a couple months now, but I won't have to put the deposit down until official announcement from BMW.

I agree, let's plan a meetup at the Welt for those doing Euro Delivery. I'm about 90% sure I can/will be taking that option.

As long as it's in May. There's no way I can get off work until then and I want the track to be above freezing before I try hauling ass wearing high-performance-summer-tires. I'd like to keep my M1 in 1 piece!

The more that I think about it, how friggen cool would that be having a good size group of us take delivery of our M1's all at once. Now that would be a nice scene at the Welt, with every turn-table mounted with M1's. They might even film it! We can dream, yes?!
