^^Sounds to me that it is possible however you will have to find a dealer who would be willing to take it out of there personal allocations. That could be tricky. M3, M5, and M6 didn't come out of the dealer allocations up to this point so they were ok with doing it. Now that they have to come out of the dealer allocation you may run into most dealers opt not to do ED sales since 1. it is a lot more work for the dealer and 2. they don't make as much profit as they would a US sold car.
Its a bummer, I wonder what caused BMW to stop this? must be such a demand that it is putting a strain on supply.
