$5-$6 off MSRP would technically be possible on a loaded car but I don't think people will get that unless BMW starts kicking in factory incentives. I don't think there is holdback on BMWs (I could be wrong) so $6k off would mean almost no dealer profit.

On that note, I really wish we had US M3 sales numbers for April and May. I know that info is available (JD Power sales data) but its not free.
