I have a question about the new E60 M5. I've read that the waiting for the new M5 at dealers can be anywhere from 12-18 months. Also, that dealers are marking prices considerably above MSRP. Are these two statements true?
If so, this leads me to my next question. Currently, I'm overseas in the Mid-East and the a local dealer here has 2 M5's on his lot, a silver and black, not ordered by anyone, fully optioned. If I buy one of these here, how much would shipping be back to the states (Texas). Has anyone shipped a vehicle. Will the US gov't standards require me to change anything in the car since its basically Eurospec'd?
Bottom line, is it even worth buying here and shipping back to states, or just wait in the US for my turn in a waiting list to pop up?
