E92 M3 production end date (month)?

My current lease comes up in July of this year. The best information I can find online is that the current M3 is confirmed through "mid-2013". Given the proximity of my lease to "mid-2013", I'm wondering if anyone has a more tightly defined production end date?

I'd kind of like to get my hands on a V8 M3 before naturally aspirated V8 M-cars are a thing of the past.

I think this is correct. Certainly, it is not Q4 2012, at least not for the Coupe, as I ordered mine in late October, and it should be arriving in the next week.

I think the Sedan was sometime earlier this year, and I don't know about the Convertible.

a lot of it has to do with allocations, once all the allocations are gone there wont be any to order, you will be stuck buying one on a lot if you can find one.

No it does not. Just get in and order now. You can get out of a lease early in order to get into another BMW lease. I have done it twice. The last day of the month right before they close at night always does wonders.

Get in NOW if you really want this car.

Try to work something out with your dealership to secure an order. I'd have that discussion now to see what options you may have. Do it, this M3 is something special. I hope it works out for you.

When do you think the first allocations will be dried up? March? April? Appreciate any inside info, even a ballpark/estimated figure. This is for Individual as well.

(P.S. I'm already getting quotes from Checa, but I just want to know how much time I likely have, i.e. weeks or months. Thanks!)

If I had to guess I would say as long as you get your order in and grab a allocation by end of may you would be safe. That may be earlier then necessary but I am a firm believer in getting in as soon as you can so you dont have to worry and leave it hope.

We have seen a slight increase lately in orders which makes me think that it will rise again at the very end from people trying to grab the last of the v8's!

That's exactly what I'm worried about.

This is pretty bad timing for me. Yes, I could try to do an early lease turn-in, but unless the finance company is offering an early turn-in incentive, the extra payments have to go somewhere. Anyone who believes they can "vanish" is fooling themselves.

I'm normally a very patient car buyer. We don't have any children, I work from home, and we have an X3, so we can easily survive as a one-car household. It's really nice to be able to take my time in the car buying process. Dealers can smell any sense of urgency, and your negotiating position is instantly diminished. I may just take my time and wait for the M2... but that's a looooong wait.

Another option I'm considering is taking someone else's lease on swap. I've found a couple of lease swap websites that look legit, and it appears that in this economy, there's always someone in FL looking to get out from underneath their $1k M3 payment. Many offer significant incentives to take over the payment.

I'd really like to own a V8 M3 before they disappear forever. That's what's really motivating me. I love the way a turbocharged engine feels -- the torque is awesome -- but I've never owned a high-revving, naturally-aspirated V8, and their time is coming to an end.
