Have MPE in my garage waiting; want to drive it a couple weeks OEM exhaust to have something to compare it to...

Quick side/unrelated question: I didn't know about individual color choices when I ordered but are those options always available or does that depend on a variety of factors?
Someone more knowledgable may correct me, but I believe the individual colors are always available; if you want to pay for it, large. I think it has to be a color BMW has offered/used in the past (?) and it takes MUCH longer to get the car too. I briefly considered Laguna Seca Blue but it was $5,000 option; some others may be more.

to elaborate, yeah the individual paint option is available to customers who order their cars at an additional price. it doesn't always take longer, but can. there is a standard palette from custom colors from you to choose from and they're all roughly 5k a piece to have done to your car.

but, they're not all available to you. it depends on a variety of factors at the time you order. some of those factors can be the dealer and CA you order from. some have more pull than others to get things done. there's a member here, PrimoM3, he wanted frozen brilliant white....from what i understand that took some doing. a lot of time and pull from his CA.

other factors can just be timing. take me for example. i wanted frozen brilliant white, but was denied it because FBW was already being used in a limited edition run in the USA. as a matter of fact, i couldn't get frozen in any color white.

you can also get colors that are not even on the palette list. this can be done at an considerable expense, though.

also, everything i just said about paint here also goes for interior leather, stitching , trim and....i think head liner, too.

any color BMW individual produces has a code that can me ordered through any body shop, i'd imagine.

individual stitching can be ridiculously expensive. why? i don't know...but, it is.

if you saw the quote, you probably would've chose to spend your money in another way. you may have some peace of mind in knowing that.

look, i can't calculate your lease deal. someone like GOLFRR can on his thread where people bring there deals to verify if they are any good or not. i think he can help you there...

BUT, i can say that all the variables of your lease...at least the important one are spot on. you have the best money factor, your rebate is being applied to your drive off ...as it should be and your residual is 62%( this doesn't change depending on what accessories you do or do not have). all that is on the up and up....so you should feel real good about that.

ALSO, prior to your CA putting the order in on your car....wasn't the particulars of this deal worked out for you. your CA should've told you what your payments were going to be. seeing that you have all the info on the variables of the deal, i'm surprised you don't know that.

just by looking at your MF, it looks like a very transparent deal....you should be able to call your CA up to get that calculation worked out for you.

i hope i'm understanding your concerns correctly....





oh, and i'll take you up on those beers anyway...anytime

So at some point the residual numbers I got from my CA went from 61% to 62% (but then I subsequently removed the MPE -- so wasn't sure if it went down again)....
i keep forgetting that you jumped in on this deal, when someone dropped out.

ok...here's the thing, if you're leasing an E92 for 36 months at 10k miles a year, the residual is 62%. If you get accessories that add to the residual, fine. a higher residual means a lower monthly payment for you.

but, you can check with your CA again....i don't think that accessories, even the MPE would lower your residual.

it's a good thing to check whatever deal you get from a dealer against other sources. at the very least, it gives you peace of mind that you're doing the right thing. you can check with GOLFRR or any of the other dealers on this site to calculate your figures for you. they're all real helpful here.

BMW config won't always be accurate because there are some of those tiny fees that the site doesn't incorporate. like dealer prep or some administrative fee.

MSD is another thing that i can't tell you about. i'm going to look into that myself when it comes time to sign papers.

now, you haven't put a deposit down on the car. so all you have is the salesman's word that he's getting this car for you? maybe someone in sales can jump in here to answer this....but, i'd want to put a deposit down on the car to secure it for myself. i wouldn't want a dealer to sell the car out from underneath me. i'd ask, if you haven't already, to see what assurances he can give you that guarantees this car for you....beyond approval from BMW financial.

BTW, why did you want to get rid of the MPE? are you going for a different exhaust?

At the very least you probably want a copy of the VIR report signed by you and the dealer (with your name at the top of the report, and entered into their computer systems) to make sure it's yours if you haven't signed anything else other than the BMWFS paperwork.

Just talked to my CA and my name is all over the M3, so i am good.

- As for the exhaust, I went with the Akrapovic Evolution exhaust because I loved the quality on my previous C63 and figure that it will have a higher resale value than an MPE.
ahh, i see. it's probably marked as a "sold car"...and, thus has your name on it. good to know!

as for your exhaust...that's a great choice. i don't know about resale value....but, that's a high quality exhaust.i know it sounds good and you get significant HP gains but, i love the way it looks. those adjustable tips are neat,too.

i can't wait to see pics of all these June E92s on here. it'll be cool to see them all come to fruition.

it probably mean that the truck has arrived...but after dealer prep and maybe them having paperwork ready for you, that they should be good to go by 2:30,4:30 or 5:30

why don't you just call them and ask?

this may seem a bit dim but here i go anyway! I know you can surely add all of these cool aftermarket extras to your car but Can you with a lease? ive never leased a car so forgive me but i was under an ASSumption that you couldn't add things like a tune or things that arent factory. I understand you can take these things off when you return it but are you going to do that for every service appt? please enlighten me, i may lease mine instead of buy if it sounds convincing.

don't think that will happen....it's just one of these weird situations where you have a perfectly good car at an awesome price that just sits there....it's like it fell through the cracks for anyone out there shopping for an M5.

either way, glad someone finally took advantage of that!

Well I wasn't expecting this. They parked the boat in Chesapeake Bay off Annapolis and have missed ETA by 12+hrs.
Anyone know if late means you miss a dock spot or maybe they don't do this at night? Just curious (and impatient )
