Dang,when did they(Military) start paying so well(my Dad is a Sergant Major Ret.)?:M5thumbs:warrenatc said:Scott, My dealer here in Germany says US spec/pricing information will be available in June for Sept/Oct 05 production. I am fortunately in the military overseas program so will hopefully get my US spec in late Sept. I am sure it will take several weeks to get the cars to the states so plan on at least October 05 for the first production runs to show up.

:cheers: Wow, i certainly hope that you are correct on that pricing, but I seem to think that it's going to be more like in the mid-$80's with your discount and in the low to mid-$90's without. Don't get me wrong, i really hope for all us yankees that your information is correct.warrenatc said:Unfortunatley nothing concrete. Due to a Canadian tax loophole, Military sales can offer the cars to us for 7-10% off MSRP. With that in mind my rep figures/hopes, for my sake, low to mid $70'sK. Without the discount, figure on low $80's MSRP.
LOL - excellent. And, thank you for your service and sacrifice for your (our) country and free countries everywhere. As far as I'm concerned they can't pay you enough!warrenatc said:Well, the M5 is not for the faint of heart! it is definitely a "lifelong" purchase for me. The pay is not bad overseas, we make a whole lot extra to combat the high prices of gas, food rent etc, so we tend to take the extra and use it to travel or save for the purchase of a lifetime! It helps not being married and having no kids too! I am only one of three that I know of purchasing an M5 out of the whole overseas program covering 10 countries! Some people I work with (Married with kids) would not dream of spending the kind of money on a car. I guess they don''t appreciate the kind of car an M5 is. Only an enthusuast with drive for life can understand that. We are only here once, so go for the gusto! Bring on the rahmen noodles, its back to college living if I have to do it to have my M5!
