But a dealer can still sell you a M3 at ED invoice + mark-up if he has an allocation and wants to move it. You will need to pay more markup than in the past; clearly the days of ED invoice + $250 are over for now -- but likely not the 5K markup USA port of entry would represent.
The best you'll get is a little less than ED MSRP.. that's if you get a dealer to work with you. Then add the price of the trip. At that point you're better off getting a US invoice price.
Unless you're planning to go to Germany anyway...
