Yes, the UK spec sheet is out at dealers. Their ordering systems were updated as from today and able to register firm orders.
Here is the info the dealers have received:
The reason why the deposit is up to £5k is due to the messing around that occured with the CSL orders back in 2003. Since then BMW has mandated dealers to confirm they have received a substantial deposit from every customer on the order list for major M Division cars.
