Almost certainly no more order slots. You can check with your dealer, but it was reported a couple of weeks ago that there was only one allocation left in the US. A quick trip to your dealer should tell you what cars are on lots now and en route to the US that are not spoken for.

Autotrader finds about 6 new space gray e90 M3's in the US.

Why don't you just go to or call your dealer? They can look this up for you in about a minute. And their info is basically real time (unlike Autotrader etc).

it's pretty tough now. they are available but you have to be pretty flexible with options...although it looks like most colors are still available. i just picked up a space gray E90 last weekend, and was lucky to get all the options i wanted on it. but i had to also get some options i didnt particularly care about.

New SG/gray e90 from Carrera BMW in Oregon on ebay motors. Looks to be loaded.

Has sunroof though. Is that a deal breaker?

Nice. Yours may be one of the very last e90 M3's.

Just out of curiosity, why is the lack of a sunroof so important? Interior headroom?

I can see the less weight (and aesthetic) argument if we were talking about an e92, but in an e90, does the sunroof really make that much weight difference?

I dont have sunroof in mine and dont miss it at all. I doubt it makes much difference weight wise. its more about convenience of it.
