M4 on pre-order

Deposit down with Ty Vil at BMW Portland for one of the first M4s (had their first E46 & E92 M3s). Sure he'll give me a nice discount Now the ~1 1/2 year wait!

Still in rumorville. Regular 4-Series coupe comes out this Fall, I believe. Ty think it will be 1 1/2 years after that, but I think (hope) no more than 1 year after. Maybe by my 66th birthday!

Well, deposit IS refundable. I've been very happy with the last 2 (except for little E46 rod bearing blip), so I'm sure this one will not disappoint.

Won't know until I see the selection. Probably something other than white or silver, my last two.

Never understood the deposit thing..... In 2008 dealers were trying to give them away.

Once the specs are released, if I like the car, I'll just order it then.

But Congrats I guess.

Do yourself a favor and take European Delivery. One of the best experiences I've ever had with my F10 M5.

I agree. I put a deposit down on the E46 M3 and then waited like 15 months til I got the car! 5 months after getting the car a rod bearing went bad and I needed a new engine........swore i'd never get the first production run of any car after that. The E9x M3 was out for 2+ years before I got my 2010 E92.........just fine with me

Hey, that's cool. First on the boards, I think.

I don't know about the M3/M4, but I know my dealership had pre-orders of the new i8.... 1.5 years ago when I put in an order for my M3.

Given how much we love the E92 M3 car (which we plan to keep), we are also planning to get the new one - unless it's a disappointment.

08 was also a recession year, and all manufacturers were hurting. A horrible time to release cars.

Deposit thing is just so you can beat everyone else by about 2-3 months for a customized car. (unless you're willing to buy one off the showroom floor)

Yup. I got one of the 'launch' 08 6MT sedans before the DCT was even available. I got a pretty nice discount off the showroom floor because they just couldn't move them back then.

Nice. I am #5 on the list at STBMW for the ED for an M4. Checa didn't even need a check.

Jet Black just as soon as they come out.

Yes I was kidding. Price has yet to be discussed. I'd like at least a small discount given my 40-year history with this dealer, but it's tough on new model releases.

you better get a discount, considering you're giving them an interst-free loan for 1.5 years
