M3-M4 are overrated. Get an SUV, be a man.

I actually think that too.

Can you guys tell me more about the individual options with Euro delivery. Do I just have the dealer set all that up.

Lol but an SUV is more practical! But seriously, I can't stand BMW anymore with their outdated designs. Have you thought about getting a Mercedes??


Edit: just did a quick search and the AMG C63 starts at $67K lol. It's more classier, bro! GET IT!!!

Definitely ask your dealer about it. Few things I recall.

When you do the European delivery, typically the amount you save on the car is the amount that you spend on the trip itself, maybe you save a bit more depending on how long you are there for. From what I've read, it's an amazing experience. Worth every penny and worth the wait as the order can take up to 6 months to be ready.

Secondly, the individual package used to cost $5k. I'm sure it's more now. A friend of mine just got a brand new x5 and said the individual was $7500. I don't thing BMW has the option online for the M3 but check other models to see if you can get an idea of what they are charging.

Personally for me, even if it's an extra $7500, I would sacrifice a couple thousand dollars worth of options and pay the $7500 for a sick color combo.

Pair that up with European delivery to save a few more bucks, and you have yourself a once in a lifetime experience. I say go for it dude. The time is now for you to enjoy the hard work you've put into stronger u

X5 was more for me and gf (winters) but after talking about it she said get what you want not what makes sense for both of us. We'll worry about an suv when her current car needs replacing.

I believe Euro delivery gets you like 7% off MSRP which would cover most of your trip, if not all. I don't like the newer BMW's but getting an M with Euro deliver is something i wanna do some day.

That means he will save probably close to 5k. That can well cover a long weekend trip and then some.

They say up to six months but it's usually much quicker than that. If you order now, you can probably pick it up in mid/late June, all depends on how busy they are. Spend a week there, drop off the car and wait another 6 weeks to have them ship it to you. I did ED for my Mercedes, BMW has a very similar program. Best experience ever, highly recommended, everyone should do this at least once in their lifetime.

When you were considering your options did you say to yourself "why not?"

I'll be here all night

a regular, non-"individual" order takes about 2-3 months on the fast end
so an "individual" order probably tacks on at least a little more time to that
