So you've got to have the new 2004 5-series when it comes out.
Well, get ready to pay...
Sources tell the Spies that there will be little if no discounts on the new 5 for the first six months or so...
And get ready for this...Dealers in hot markets will be market pricing the 545, so look for the ugly stupid tax (premium over MSRP) to rear its ugly head again.
Auto Spies perspective: We suggest leasing one of the current 2003 5-series car (run, don't walk to your dealer),*with the discounted lease rates and artificially amplified residuals for a couple years and then pick up a new body style five, once the furor has calmed down.
