    Does anyone have recommendations for a reliable salesman? I'm researching pricing for a 2010 M3 E90, DCT Tranny, virtually fully loaded. I want the new Gray BMW is introducing on the 2010. I would consider a 2009 but it must have everything I want on it and be a great deal. Any who, I'm trying to get pricing so that I can pull the trigger for a special order 2010 when/after the assembly line starts rolling in Sept. I'm dealing with a BMW salesman, who shall remain nameless, in Maryland, and this guy is passive about responding.

    I've had two dealers quote discount on an M3, special order, 3% off of the MSRP, is that reasonable? I should be able to negotiate 5%. All I want is a fair and reasonable price.

    I reside in Northern Virginia and I'm ok traveling within a 500 mile or so radius.

    Please advise

    You can still order new 2009's from the factory. I just did last week.

    Here's my dealership in Harriman, NY.: http://www.orangecountybmw.com/

    My sales guy Chris is also the business development manager:http://www.orangecountybmw.com/staf...ALT&iStaffID=2&CFID=28818154&CFTOKEN=40313596

    Contact him if you'd like. It certainly wont do any harm.

    With over twenty-five years experience in BMW sales, having founded a BMWCCA chapter thirty-years ago, and with some fifteen or more years of service on the BMW CCA national board, I'm always happy to help out fellow members.

    Call me anytime.

    The first mention of that was in a post from May of 2009 so I suspect it'd be old news by now, even if we knew what the original poster was talking about. Perhaps it was Space Gray (A52) but that was available for 2009MY (and 2008, to, for that matter). In fact, the standard order-deck colors for the 2009 M3 are exactly the same as the 2011 specs are right now. Interior colors, too.

    The original poster will have to tell us if he was talking about Individual colors or not. [IMG]

    The only "new" gray is Space Gray, and it... is... gorgeous. (never thought I'd say that to a bland color like gray, but there ya go...)

    "New" is certainly a relative term, since Space Gray has been available on the M3 since 2008. ;)

    Any BMW Individual order is on a case-by-case basis. I was ordering Individual colors (really just stock colors not offered on a specific model) on the first year of the E36 M3. I even managed to get the OnBoard Computer for a customer (RIP Harmon) before they became an option on the E36 M3. It all depends on the mood at BMW, the willingness of your dealer to navigate the rather indirect route it takes to get it done, and your willingness to pay a non-refundable deposit well in advance. What BMW NA wants to prevent is a car coming in damaged in an special color, or a customer refusing a special order. A good relationship with a good dealer should let you know exactly what you can and can't get, though even non-standard colors seem to pose a problem for BMW NA.

    I even had a customer who wanted beige seats in his E36 M3. BMW gave us a price for them...each! And that only included front seats. The back seats, door panels, and carpets would have been black! Not that's special. :)

    I wholeheartedly agree. II wanted a 1998 318ti Sport in Dakar Yellow II.
    After numerous phone calls I was finally told it would be $1500 and no guarantee when it would be built. For $1500, I didn't want it that badly and looking back, I'm glad.

    I also know someone who had M3 brakes installed at the factory in his 318ti.

    Precisely. Hence the quotes. :)

    So what Steve, I'm not exclusive enough to post in the E9x M3 section? Not cool. :p

    So sorry. A brief moment of elitism on my part. I'll try to keep in check in the future.

    No, I just think it was you hatin' on the E30, and the fact that I have a higher blinker fluid capacity than you. :D

    Actually I thought that it was implying there might be different color coming for MY2010 other than Space gray. Its certainly a great color, but as I have posted in other threads, I prefered silver gray metallic, as it is slighly brighter. Seems to have more bunch.
