Given some estimates of less than 5000 new M3s to be produced this year, and the kind of average waiting list at each of the roughtly 300 dealers in the US (like between 50- 100 or more), that implies that a 'demand' of 15,000 to 30,000 new M3s. Is this unusual for this kind of car? Does the M5 have the same problem? Or are there many 'lookie - loos' out there on the waiting list with no intention of buying?<p>If everyone is serious, some people will wait 3 years for theirs! Is this unusual?<br>

My dealer says he expects people to drop off, and there are only 13 ahead of me (small dealer though).<p><i><br>Given some estimates of less than 5000 new M3s to be produced this year, and the kind of average waiting list at each of the roughtly 300 dealers in the US (like between 50- 100 or more), that implies that a 'demand' of 15,000 to 30,000 new M3s.

In '96 there was a partial year of M3 production, if memory serves it went Mar or Apr - July<br>< 4000 M3s made (I think like 3800)<br>Either way it comes out to <2 M3s per dealer per month average
