Considering a late 2020 G80 M3 ED - couple questions

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I wanted to poll people who may have more recent experiences with ED for individual builds and ED. I am currently in a lease with my M550i that will end late 2020. Wife and I were thinking of doing a European vacation for our anniversary and Euro delivery came up. Been wanting an M3 for quite a while. With the new one coming up, I'm kinda getting excited, so I started doing some research.

How early do you start the ordering process? I was also thinking of an individual build.

Is there a cap on discounts for ordering an M3? Been seeing some other people saying that incentives are not able to be bundled beyond 4% off for ED. Is that true?

Thanks in advance.

Prolly gonna be tough to do right out of the gate esp with an Individual build. I've done two EDs though and will do many more it's the best experience you can do. The key is to find the most knowledgeable SA in your area and reach out.

Not much is known about the car or SOP dates atm but my guess would be that timeline is too tight - they usually need at least 3mos before pickup date to put in the order for ED. They might not have the ordering system up with enough cushion to do that depending on your exact date in mind. But like I said once the car is announced find an SA and get on it!

There’s a good chance it won’t start production until 2021. There’s also a chance it comes earlier than that, late in 2020, but right now an early 2021 SOP for both the M3 and M4 Coupe is what I would guess as most likely.

This waiting sucks big time

I will probably get the X5M to calm me down for a while
Should start production in second quarter from what I heard.

M3 F80 stopped its production in late 2018, it will be too late if G80 SOP starts at 2021 or late 2020.
Hopefully I can have my ED in July 2020 (I have been waiting for so long)!

I bet everything I have that you won't get it July 2020

I agree that history support this and I personally expected deliveries to start summer 2021 but with the specific configurations and market specific options now being leaked it sounds like the possibility of a 2020 launch. Not sure what timeframe to place my bet on now.

Like the G20 2020 models in summer 2019. So mid 2020 for 2021 ? We can hope. IMHO one of BMW's most anticipated cars

My wife and I did a European Delivery for her Individual San Marino Blue M3 Competition Package with Individual Polar Blue stitching in July 2018. Our original target date was May 2018, which was pretty much planned around attending the Grand Prix of Monaco after the delivery.

We first approached our dealer in September 2017 and were told to come back in November. That would be ~6 months in advance. The dealer is not a high-volume dealer, but has done a lot of Euro Delivery and Individual cars. Unfortunately, they were not able to get an allocation until February 2018. (Allocations for an M car are different and harder to get than allocations for non-M cars.) The order went in and we were waiting for our desired delivery date.

BMW GmbH came back and told us that Individual interiors are batched by the third-party supplier and that they wouldn't be doing another batch until June, so a May delivery wasn't possible. (The Individual San Merino Blue wasn't a problem.) We looked at the F1 calendar and realized that if we waited until July we could attend the German Grand Prix at Hockenheimring, so we adjusted our delivery date to coincide with that.

Bottom line, you want an Individual color, and especially if you want anything Individual in the interior, you should be talking to your dealer in at least 6-8 months in advance so they have a clear idea of what you want and whether they will have an allocation that will meet your timeframe. High-volume dealers get more allocations than low-volume dealers and your order may go in earlier. (I had no problem finding a high-volume dealer with an existing allocation for my 2016 M4, but that was also a year after release.)

Euro Delivery pricing is different than domestic pricing. BMW takes 5% off the top for Euro Delivery, but pricing is generally calculated on Euro invoice price plus an additional amount, usually $1000-2000 for M3/4. For both my 2016 M4 and my wife's 2018 M3 we offered $1500 over Euro invoice price. There is lots and lots of information on how to do the calculations to determine Euro invoice price which you should be able to find with a Google search.

I just wanted to add for the OP that you can no longer use incentives on ED cars. 5% off is all there is.
