First allocations...

Hi to everyone.

I was wondering when did the dealer received the first allocations for the coupe. I was searching the forum, but couldn't find any information.

Early December for many dealers (my dealer got their first on 12/3, second about 12/23).

Does this mean that all the dealers already know how many coupes they are allocated for 2008? Why does my dealer claim he doesn't know how many cars they will be getting? I have a deposit on the coupe--4th on the list. Thanks.

Garage List
2008 M3  [4.75]
First allocations referred to the "demo" cars that the dealers will be getting, some dealers decided to sell these cars to the customer instead of keeping them. I dont think every, if any dealer will know exactly how many coupes they will be getting for the whole year but if you are 4th on the list i dont think you will need to worry.

Your dealer is telling the truth. Allocation predictions are not issued by BMW AG, especially this early in production.
