Good updates from South Bay BMW

First let me say that I generally think we know more than dealers. Often it is absolutely the case that we know waaay more and they are total BS-ers. Anyway I got these updates from my sales manager today and so far he has been a really good guy. Some quotes some paraphrasing and I added some comments:

No official news – but we are expecting the car in the summer of ’07. Maybe the guy at Irvine has more official info than me (see initial post)???? We just got back from Phoenix with BMW launching the new X5 and they gave us all kinds of scoops – new 1 series, facelift 5 and 6 series, hydrogen 7, hardtop convertible 3 series, diesel motors….. Nothing about the M3!! (we did get to thrash the X5 around Firebird raceway – fun!!) I will let you know if we get any official news.

New York, April, is a good guess for the cars debut (maybe he meant US debut not international)?

We should have official vehicle specifcations by Feb ’07?

Since SBBMW is one of the larger dealers they expect 1-4 M3s/mo after allocations begin.
