Did you get a good deal ?
Seems every dealer I have been to, offers the same deal. Namely 7k£ off regardless of the list price.
Problem is that the list price has increased so much this year, gutted!
would have ordered earlier if i knew

Mines currently at the checking stage in this country, having been shipped beginning of this week. They say it'll arrive at my local bmw centre soon.

Any ideas on how long that tends to take? :lol: impatient!

I think it depends buddy. Mine seemed to take 7-10days or so from entering the country before being sent to the dealership :D

I ordered an M2 a few weeks ago, was supposed to be a week 22 build and in typical BMW fashion it all got pushed forward. So it's now been built for nearly 2 weeks and still hasn't crossed the sea yet. The dealer just said there seems to be some delay of around a week or so getting them over??
