They're comming soon to the US

I got an e-mail from my dealer today.
it read:


"We have our first one in our inventory. It's White. It will be built last week of January."


I know its not much but it just makes it a little more real. Can't wait to see it IRL. I'm guessing it will be delivered late Feb or early March.

First allocations

This from my dealer (Rasmussen, Portland) today,

"I have both the coupe and the sedan ordering guide. We received our first allocation today for the initial round of cars. We made the business decision not to have a demonstrator of this car. This means that all of our allocations will go towards filling customer orders."

I saw that 54 allocations were given during this first round for the new M3 in the whole US.
We need 10x that amount.

lol ok, i guess about 1/5 of the dealers will be getting 1 car, which in some cases they will use as demo cars. I guess we'll have to wait till 2009

maybe Epacy ment 5400, or hes just trolling

I'll take the DCT tranny since I seem to be so in love with it recently for no reason other than wanting something different. Any maybe some of us can meet and put a whole car together.

But you forget, it does not yet officially exist. Of course, US M3s do not exist, either.
