got a message that their first allocation was expected soon and they wanted me to confirm if I wanted it. I told them NO. Between the specs, lackluster reviews and styling I just can't get excited over this car. I sure as hell wouldn't be the first to pre-order one test drive and sight unseen. Maybe if I get a chance to test drive one later i'll feel differently, but I doubt it. I think it's time for a new brand.

I turned mine down too, for the first time with BMW, I really want to at least sit in the car in person prior to making the plunge. I think its also rediculous that the price is such a mystery. Its delaying my next purchase. If its going to be around the 70k mark nicely equipped, I am going lightly used 911.

and get your money back. I am sold and will definetley order a M3 coupe. although I wont get one of the first ones cause I dont want to pay a mark up.

that's a total d!ckhead move to spec out and commit to an order then renege at the end. Some dealers will keep the deposit if someone does that and I think they should. Reminds me of that clown Bruce on the M3 board years ago. The guy literally spec'd out TWO new M3's and a 911 Porsche and walked away from all three orders.

out and then walk away. Give the spot to someone who will spec the car to their way and then who will keep it. I'm #1 at my dealer but I'm like Jason...I won't buy one of the first ones. I, for sure want the M DCT, and even when they get around to offering it, I still want to drive one before buying one. At a $75K price (I love loaded cars), I may look elsewhere. I just have problems with a $75K 3-series car.

I was lurking in the UK E92 M3 Forums and they were saying at one dealer there is a new M3 just sitting there for 2 months unsold....and they were discounting the car. It was a Silverstone color M3.

will sell the car to some other clown. I am only saying order it if you are REALLY interested in it.

use BMW Individual when ordering cars. We have to stick to the handful of crappy color choices and two interior choices.

today . I was frustrated with no pricing, but bit the bullet and updated my order today. #1 allocation is gone, so I should get one of the next ones, hopefully by
April. Personally, I'm excited about the car and the recent reviews have been anything but lackluster!

they liked the steering feel of the 5-series diesel WAGON better. I'm looking for something much better than that.

[...]"It was fearsomely fast, yet cruised well, suggesting it should be the ultimate all-rounder. But the driving experience was too detached to be truly involving and exciting. What were we missing?"

[...]"The ride is more cushioned than that of the other BMW on our fleet – a 535d M Sport Touring.

Comparing the two, road test editor Oliver Marriage reported: “The estate has a better driving position and purer steering. Engine aside, I didn’t enjoy driving the M3 that much more than the Touring."

[...]"We’re not confused any more – the M3 is simply not quite as dazzling as we had hoped." (

and your probably the first guy to complain about being jerked off by the dealership, when ordering a car not 100% sold on is the ultimate stroke.
