Do the M5 prices go down after a while?

Hi guys

I am new here and I (still) don't have the M5 and I am trying to figure out something. I suppose you can help me from your experience.

The current price of the M5 base model in BMW Germany is 86,500 EUR. Is this price going to stay like this or is it going to fall down in a while? If it is going to fall, when can this be expected and how much (in percentage) could it fall?

Thanks a lot for the info!

I will buy one from Germany (although I live in Switzerland) because of VAT issues (I will get the 16% VAT from Germany back and have to pay only 7.6% here in Switzerland). So I am interested in the price in Germany. The US prices are very different (and amazingly lower) than the European ones and maybe the price politics of BMW are not the same
I would have no worries buying a EUR 20k car in Germany, but I doubt buying a M5 in Germany. Do you get BMW Service Plus, Free Service up to 100'000 km and so on?
Not to talk about the case you have someting with your M5... for instance a broken engine... will you go to Germany to deal with them? Of course you get a European warranty... . Nevertheless, I personally admire a good relationship to my BMW dealer here in CH. Believe me, it is worth it!

Under the bottom line I don't think you will have any advantage. However, it is your decision.

Yes, I know about the Service Plus, Free Service, etc. I also checked what can be saved by importing from Germany. It's about 9'000 CHF for an M5 that costs in Switzerland 139'000 (so German price is 130'000). Do you think the Service Plus is worth 9'000? I don't know how much the service costs for a M5... For my 316 E46 I did not save more than 1000 CHF from service....
As I wrote before, it is your desicion and I don't want to hold you off from your way.

But... don't forget it is not a normal 4-cyl. 1.6 liter BMW we are talking about.
It is a BMW M... a V10 5 liter engine... and this for 100'000km....?!?!

PS: At my E39 M5 I got replaced the front brake discs three times because of vibrations during braking down from high speed.:flag: If I would have had to pay this every time, well....grrrrrrr
