How many of you have taken the plunge and placed a firm E60 M5 order with deposit?

hmm....I guess I'll talk to the guy again. If you guys over there can place orders now, there's no reason that I couldn't.

I have a deposit on an E60 M5 and am # 1 on
the dealer list for it.

But the photos of the instrument panel are making me
think twice about the purchace.

IMO it looks like crap.

What's with the double binnacle.

Awful design.

here in the US, it all depends on the individual dealer. just like how some dealers try to charge over MSRP on hot cars.

When I ordered my 03 M5 last October, I also gave my dealer a deposit for an E60 M5. Although the E60 M5 will probably be excellent from the driving department, at this point I am not thrilled with the looks department from the inside or the outside. Now that I have my beast, I am absolutely thrilled with my M5 and now that my craving for a 4 door rocketship has been satisified, I may change the order. I have considered the M6 but that also is not scoring very high in looks, so right now I am think an M3 with SMG might be lot of fun or a 911 TT if the bank book cooperates.

We will just have to wait and see.

Regards,

T.

Put an order for M5 and M6 in January 2002. Will decide which I go for or neither once I have seen them in the flesh. Also had orders for RS6 and E55 but decided to pass on both of those.

Having heard of sticker prices in the range of 90k, i must hold off and prob go the way ofthe dark side. If, on the other hand, they seem to bring the price comparable to the e55, then we are in business.

I too, like most of you , would look at both the m5 and m6, but again, price is the question , as well as time of availability.

As soon as I head that a V10 was the proposed powerplant for the E60 I told my sales guy that I am number one of the dealerships list for the E60 M5. Although I havent put money down yet, they know Im serious about my position on their list

After seeing pictures of the regular 5 series, i might sell my spot and make some money out of it...who knows.

If the M5 looks good, ill keep it and have a new toy...although i might just sell my spot, and keep the money and use it for something german and more sporting in nature from Stuggart-Zuffenhausen

Ok. Went down to my dealer again and dropped a deposit on both an M6 and M5. I'm not sure if I'll buy any of them seeing how we still don't know much about either model but it's just insurance in case I'll want either of them. Or both.
BTW, I couldn't get a straight answer on why they told me that they weren't taking deposits two weeks ago, but I got the feeling that he was protecting the new guy which is the one who I've talked to before.
