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 ;-)

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.

last time I checked Staten Island was part of New York, and New York not only gets a lot of snow but has been under blizzard conditions quite often recently. Even if it's not blizzard right now it's still winter.

So, surprise surprise, M5's don't sell like hotcakes in winter climates, and there's a couple on dealer lots. That will change when the weather turns nice and stays that way. How are sales in warmer areas? Oh yeah, they're awesome. As for the speed of the M5, every magazine and test report has shown the car doing 0-60 in 4.1-4.3 seconds. That's pretty freakin' fast. Maybe not quite "Lambo territory", but pretty damn close, and show me a four door, five passenger, $90K Lambo first -- then maybe that comparison will make some sense.

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.

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)
