Hahah. That's not exactly true. Some states actually allow you to purchase a car in that state and you don't have to pay sales tax if you are in the military. SC is one of those states. Just make sure you're HOR isn't the same state.
So, if I decide to go and do the Performance Center Delivery, perhaps I may not pay sale tax because my home of record is in Florida? They will just give me a Temporary South Carolina tag.

BTW, what is the website for Pentagon MSP? I've been working with FIRST Choice MSP.

Still haven't figured import tax.
Last time when the car arrrived BMWNA asked me to send a copy of my passport before it could clear customs.
Some people in Europe are on PCS orders and have the car delivered to Europe and then the military pays for shipping home when they transfer to their new permanent duty assignment.

I asked about Performance Center Delivery and was told it was not avail at this time for the M3 from my sales guy at Pentagon Miitary Sales. Also asked about individual colors...I love that yellow that the e46 M3 comes in. He's still checkin on that but unsure if BMW will offer it yet.

I think you must have a different definition of "order" than the rest of us.
I understand that...I have a base car ordered...when options and prices for them come out I will be able to add which ones I chose. I DO have a deposit DOWN and paid to with Pentagon Military Sales (got my Mastercard statement today and for sure as hell its on there!) I have an allocation and order # with Pentagon Military Sales, a verfied commitment letter for funding from my Bank and when they get options and final prices and my turn come in their allocation line (I assume there are a few folks ahead of me!) then my vehicle will be built. I guess that clarifies it..pretty much!

Yep, I did my order through Mathias at Pentagon in June and have an April allocation here in the sates. I was told that individual colors were not available for US allocations.

However, keep in mind that the 49K base that Pentagon is using is an estimate and subect to change. Dont be surprised if the Military sales price goes up to 55k. This information is in the paperwork.

That being said I was told that the 49K was given to Pentagon by BMW as minimum price required to secure allocations. So, its probably a very good estimate and gives some insight into US MSRP. Probably 55-57K MSRP.

Yeah I think even if the base MSRP for mil sales ends up being 3-5k higher around $55k it is still a hell of a good deal compared to what retail stateside will run you for an M3 within the first 24months after its release I bet. Sure by late fall/early winter you'll be able to find one or two here or there on the CPO and newly-returned market but I suspect they'll be far and few in between and you'll definately have to modify your choices for options and colors in that aspect if you get one that way. So I am not complaining especially if Mil Sales keeps their estimated $49k base.

I'm not sure that's true. You have to be stationed in SC. You have to go to the county tax office and provide your orders and an LES with your HOR on it, and if you can prove that you're stationed in SC and your HOR is some place else you'll only have to pay like 35 dollar road fee and your the fee for your tags when you register at the DMV.

If you're just taking delivery in SC it's not gonna work.

Not sure what you are talking about when you say ruining the program.. who wants to ruin the program..


The Military Sales programs that exist for BMW, MINI, Audi, and all American auto makers are awesome!

The Numbers have not changed but they may

I am close to the top, very early production, but BMW may adjust the MSRP upwards, especially in light of the dollar hitting record lows against the Euro
so we will see


The price includes shipping back to the US Port.

I attended the M3 Experience and you want This car


I want one thats for sure

Well if you read what I said!! You have guys on here stating that they are going to purchase their m3 and resell them, and I said that they are going to ruin it....as a former Marine(in the 80's) I always thought BMW's would be a car I could never afford,and BMW has this Military sales program ..so people who don't or didn't at one point could afford them...now you have these guys who want to ruin it by trying to make a quick profit...whats going to happen is they are going to stop offering special cars like the m3 or kill the program all together because you have people taking advantage of it the wrong way....is that clear enough for you. I remember getting a check for 450 bucks as an E-3 in the Marines I could never own a BMW...now I'm alot better off finance wise but I'm able to purchase and I love it..don't let some ruin it for all of us because of greed.
