what the?! i called my dealer to ask about the x5 4.6 waiting list length and asked about the e60 m5.
me: you don't have a waiting list on that car yet do you? dealer: yes, we've got 7 names...
fyi, they've got over 100!! names on the mini waiting list!

The day I took delivery of my car (8-15-01), I asked my sales advisor to put me on the list for the next M5. He said no problem, and I became the 1st person on their list, which looks like it may be released just in time for my 3.5 year lease to expire!!

Can't wait!!

Hi all!

In my weekly Dutch carmagazine (autoweek, family to German AutoBild and English AutoExpress) I read about the e60 M5.

It has been confirmed that the enigine will be a 500 horsepower V10!! :rolleyes:

The back of the car is not supposed to look like the new 7-series, the bootlid won't be that prominent! :)


Can't wait for the first (non-computerized) official pictures.


Question: How many are most certainly going to buy one?

ME (in my dreams....:crying: )

If in fact they do put a v-10 in the M5 do you think they will also put it in the M6? I don't need 4 doors so that's my ticket.

Yes it is rumored they will!

Alx,

just remember who was doubted on the V10 rumors.

M6 coupe will also have it.

M5 and M6 will have SMG 3 and perhaps even AWD as an option?!!! (Id skip this but its been rumored)

M6 cabrio might not happen due to chassis issues- but the odds are it will.



as to waiting lists, well, get in line I guess. the dealers I deal with dont have any waiting lists on the M6 nor E60 M5. But I am promised a high spot on any such list :)

i am still in doubt that there will a v-10. i still think it will be a approx. 6 liter v-8.

but that doesnt mean i am not #2 on the waiting list at my local bmw dealership :D

Johnny D:

I did not have to give them a deposit. My dealership doesn't work that way....Never gave them one for the beast until the day I ordered it....Which was a year after getting on the list!!

deposits vary by dealer, though....

PS: They also don't go over MSRP Thank God....
