Any demo M3s in MI?

Anyone know of dealerships getting demo M3s that can be taken for a test drive in MI? Actually southeast MI is best but I would be willing to drive further.

The three dealerships I have experience with are Earhard in Farmington, BMW of Ann Arbor, and the one in Toledo, OH whose name I forget. I will definitely be calling those, but does anyone know of anything firm at any dealership yet? Does anyone already have an appointment for a test drive?

FWIW, Ann Arbor has theres in, and ready to drive. I am going to stop in tomorrow, assuming the weather permits. I'd go tonight but it won't fit my schedule.

Well that was a bust. It turns out there are not allowing drives, contrary to what I was told yesterday. Big disappointment. But they do have a fully loaded (yes, every single option) AW/black/carbon leather coupe if anyone is interested.

Thanks George, I'll have to go check it out.

^^^ Mojorisin - I already bought an M3.

I did call both Bavarian Motor Village and Erhard, but neither had an M-DCT car to try out. Ann Arbor BMW once again denied my request to test drive their M-DCT car, and it cost them a sale (which I was happy to tell them when they called me back a couple days later).

I ended up going to Yark in Toledo Ohio. They were very happy to let me test out the M-DCT car they had, and I ended up buying it from them.

I love the it! I just got my 1200 mile service yesterday and the drive home was very fun I must say. The car is extremely fast, much faster than my old M3. The added weight is definitely noticeable (vs. both my old car and the 335i), but I am simply unable to break my addiction to convertibles. M-DCT is also very sweet.

Next time there is a local meet, we should both try to go.
