In April of 2021, I placed an purchase for my 6th M5, an Particular person M5C, as the lease on my 2019 M5C would be maturing in September of 2021.
The only concern that crossed my brain at the time was the possibility of the new car or truck arriving prior to the lease expiring on the present car or truck.
What would ensue can truthfully only be explained as Insanity.
I am happy that I remained client during the pretty much 1-year procedure and caught to my unique purchase as spec’d. I would have unquestionably regretted eradicating selected options in trade for the auto arriving quicker.
Some “need to haves” for my spec were being CCB’s, Particular person Paint, Bowers and Wilkins and Total Tartufo Interior.
After having experienced largely Dim Grays and Blacks on my earlier M5’s, I was seriously searching for something lighter and narrowed the listing down to Nardo, Chalk, Fashion Gray, and Hockenheim Silver.
I lastly settled on Hockenheim Silver and encouraged my CA this was my Remaining option, and he current my order. A couple of times afterwards, he informed me that BMW discontinued Hockenheim Silver and was not prepared to approve our request and, as these kinds of, turned to the three other colors I had initially picked.
I discarded Nardo as it was a little darker than what I was on the lookout for and that still left Chalk and Vogue Gray. Soon after looking at a Chalk 911 Turbo S in individual, my mind was created up. This is just one of several colors exactly where photographs only never do it justice and performs incredibly effectively at complimenting the all-natural strains of the automobile.
Right before I get into the actual spec here is what my timeline appeared like …. I figured this would give a lot of some colour on what to hope timing-intelligent. Acquire it for what it truly is well worth as this is seriously a frequently changing predicament.

•Anthony O’Brien (BMW of Rockville) was amazing to operate with. Not only did he get quickly get me a 22′ allocation but he provided me 7% off MSRP and that by no means transformed in spite of the market place considerably altering all through this period of time. He also held my lease payment as initially agreed inspite of my initial offer expiring many moments. I realized through this system that many things are out of the palms of dealerships (shortages, creation delays, eradicated solutions, trustworthy information and facts from BMW) so my measurement is dependent on the factors they handle.
