I got my delivery month confirmed this morning. May build for July delivery.

I've gone for Silverstone/perforated black with aluminium with ventilated seats. Pretty much everything else is standard on Aust spec cars.

Can't wait! :M5thumbs:

Thanks Mark,

Found out last week I was 4th on their list & thought that was a bit low as I signed up March last year but it seems you & two others were "super keen".. Oh well, I ONLY need to wait till October.. Haven't converted that to "sleeps" yet though.. :)

Provided I can get the "right" price on my M3 I certainly will be. They haven't let me down B4 so there will be either an Interlagos Blue or Indianapolis Red touring the streets also come October..

The dealer asked me not to mention as only grade B dealers got allocation and they dont wanto make waves. I have been on the list for over 3 years. When I got my 2001 M3, I orderd the M5.:cool: It is in the south of jhb so work it out.

I finally spoke to the dealer today, he has been chasing me for the last couple of weeks, thought it was regarding a 7 series, so was in no rush, same deal July/Aug delivery, wants me to come in and select options. Dealer is Melb BMW, I am 6 on list, but their initial allocation is for 8 cars.

Hadn't even thought about it actually, thought it would be a while yet. I only ordered the car in Oct last year when we bought the new M3 for she who must be obeyed.
To be honest, I'm not even sure I want to take delivery of the car. The S600 has been chipped, so is more comfortable and significantly faster, I'm having a blast with the 550 at trackdays, so I don't know that there's room for an M5 in my life right now.
Ah... it's tough being a perfromance car enthusiast these days isn't it?!!

Stephen, I didn't recognise the handle!

I agree you are well catered for at the moment. Good to see the 550 is getting put to good use. :)

Maybe when it arrives I'll fall in love and trade the MB. With the S being superseded next year, I'm keen to get out of it, if I can find the right car.
