Re: US PRICING : INVOICE VS MSRP

I don't mind if the dealer makes money. In fact, I think a dealer should make money or else I wonder why he/she would want to remain a dealer. I think paying MSRP for the M5 is fair and acceptable. I just disagree with paying a premium for this car, or any mass production car, for that matter. Paying a premium to MSRP should be reserved for limited production cars such as the McLaren F1 or the Ferrari Enzo, NOT the BMW M5.

Correct--BMW has a 5% holdback (although they hate to admit it...), half of which is a given, and half is based on CSI ratings.

The M5 has the same ~9% margin that other BMW models have, and the 5% holdback.

At this point, I think it's a moot point, since--although supply seems to be keeping up well with demand--I think it will some time before we can go to the dealer and talk about how much over invoice we can buy the car for...

Re: US PRICING : INVOICE VS MSRP

Sorry but that is wrong...there is holdbacks...they have to give the dealer something. It works with the amount of units that you sell, along with yes CSI ranking, and the amount of advertising that each dealer does and YES, no one should pay over sticker for this car. The car is not as hott as the E39 M5 that came out...I believe, mainly b/c of the price and certain options should be offered at no additional cost. I do believe, and correct me if im wrong, rear-airbags were offered at no additional cost on the E39 M5?
