US Mil sales or German? If US, what price were you quoted?

My Mil Sales guy is not finalizing my order until he can give me an actual price and options list which, according to him, is not confirmed at this time. However, he did tell me that DCT was not available until a June build for US allocations.

Hopefully your rep isnt jumping the gun. You are truly lucky and you must be at the top of his list.. looks like June build and July/Aug allocation for me in CA...

Thanks for the info...

Are either of you going thru Pentagon Mil Sales? I can FIND my rep now..am back stateside and would hate to call an annoy him if he has no info for me yet (order and deposit placed end of last summer) however I can't even get an email response and that is troubling. I've seen other posts of Mil Sales buyers stating the same...and just wondering why the US dealers seem to be getting some info back to their clients thru their CA's while some of us Mil Sales buyers are in blackout mode!

I just got an email from my salesman. Some cars in the military sales program already have Feb build dates and that his dealership will buy the cars from the customers if the final Military price comes out too expensive.

Unfortunately, I am no longer in the market for the M3 Sedan. My wife and I are now expecting twins on top of our newborn. The guys on the other boards say that there is no way to put three childs seats in the back of the E9x series. It's amazing how few vehicles there are that can handle three infant seats.

Looks like a Jeep GC SRT8 and a R class for us, although the Range Rover military discounts look pretty good.

Yes I am using pentagon. Honestly I dont think there is any new info out there. My rep has always only given me concrete info. He has been pretty quiet lately because there is still now Mil Sales price and or option prices for things like MDCT.

Take care,

Jason

Do our (MSP) orders show up in the US Owners circle database for tracking?

Only four seats. I need five. Maybe the 4 liter TT will make it to the X5 the following model year. But the X5 is just too overpriced IMHO. I can get a Range Rover Sport SC for less.

I wish I could find a used AMG R class for a reasonable price.

Has anybody else heard from their dealer/CA? My guy at Pentagon Mil Sales isn't even answering emails anymore? Who should I call for a status update or would you guys just let it slide until they contact me? My PO says I am due a 30 May 08 delivery date but maybe that's slipped? No order info or nothing yet from them. When I see all of you guys getting info it make me a little nervous as this is my 1st time doing this mil sales deal.

Thoughts?

Yes that is very nice. I called and left a message. It is not the wait I mind but being ignored by Mil Sales Rep which I DO mind. Especially after I placed my order and placed my deposit. If the car comes in May or Aug is not as much of a big deal but I do like to have info flow both ways especially if I am paying $50k+ for something.
