i got a beef with the new M5s
 
i just picked up a 750i on lease, while i was there i was lookin at the M5. I jokingly said i would get one but im not gonna wait 2yrs for one. Dealer lights up and says they have 4 in stock and will happily intercept whatever i wanted. I looked at him with shock!!!!!! WHY ARENT THEY MOVING THESE CARS? Dont believe me? http://http://www.prestigebmw.com/in...aspx?newused=n

They list 3 new, the 4th is a black demo. They also said they would give me 6k off one? WHAT THE ****????????

i asked about the new M roadster and they said that is a 1yr wait list!!!!!! some one needs to explain this to me. (and yes i did take one out) its an incredible car. Just so good, im not a huge fan of SMG but the 7 speed kicks ass.

Hmm..seems like it wasnt because they jacked up the price.

I have heard that older M5 owners arent happy with the new M5; because it has very E46 M3 (read:top end) power characteristics. It doesnt have that effortless pull of the old M5 or the AMG cars.

You should take that m5 over the 750i any day ;-)

i almost did except for the fact that i cant lease it, if i do its 1600/month w/ 3k down vs 999/month w/1000 down

and i need a "client limo"

socalled "technical problems".. refer to M5board for more infomation

tipsyhemi 03-22-2006 09:15 PM

explain?

there are a few new M5s on the lot at dealers around here.

there was a new available M roadster (red on blk iirc) at leith bmw in raleigh.

my dealer has 2 in stock. They aren't selling becuase they are leasing out like a $110,000 760i. BMW overpriced this car into 750i territory. Most wealthy businessmen opt for the 750i or 750li, becuase they are more luxurious and get better gas mileage, have a true automatic, and have a higher quality interior. I drove a E60 M5 and it is fast, but not as fast as you would think it is from all of the praise it gets. When you can get a 750i (BMW flagship let me remind you) with every option for $350/month cheaper than an M5, anyone with common sense will pick the 7.

That's a gross assumption. You're not accounting for areas where the vehicle is moving like hotcakes. They just aren't selling well in your particular area. I've seen a shitload of new ///M5's around OC/LA.

Agreed!

Jeuprx-8 just responded with a very opinionated statement. I for one don't think it's necessarily as fast as people think. It is a very fast car for its size and characteristics, but it's no lambo. (which is obvious to most, I hope)

Nor is it trying to be.

tipsyhemi 03-23-2006 04:20 PM

Im sorry there are a SHITLOAD in my area, but it just SHOCKED me how many M5s are still on the dealer lots.

Because they are ugly.

Amazing car but ugly. If you were going to spend $85K on a car wouldn't you want a nice lookng car?

I think the M5 is amazing, but I can't get past the Hyundai look.

That dealer has three ///M5's. Big deal. You make it seem like they have 15 sitting stagnant on their lot.
