You can buy from a dealer somewhere else and they will deliver it to u if u want to go that route. Or t least u could show a quote to ur dealer.
I agree. I'm seeing around 2.5% or less.

I am hoping BMW will show M3 winning as this gen M3 is nearing its end and I have heard that BMW may release another special edition E92 M3 as a good bye.
BMW will do a country wide M drive on track with new M5 and M6 later half of this year. They will have 2013 X5 M and X6 M there too as pace cars and probably M3 as well. Event is usually by invitation only. So if you have an M car or BMWFS customer, you may get an invitation.

I am assuming that you are getting quote on 2012 X5 M as facelift 2013 will be out in late April/early May. 2012 X5 M will be even cheaper when 2013 is out. probably below invoice.

I am seeing $4900 off base MSRP (with no options) on 2012 X5 M.

Well I'll be waiting for my invite to the party. The limited edition cars we get in the US are boring. What BMW needs to do is release the GTS in the US . Want to talk about limited edition, that would be the ultimate E92 prize...............Phil

I had heard rumors of X6 M CRT edition last year, but nothing recently. Limited edition M3s are limited and hard to get....they will probably have 20 or 40 sold in 20 minutes.

BTW, worldwide sales of X6 M were more in 2010 then X5 M per the M-division sales figures.

I believe the answer is always "it depends". It depends on traction and the track. The X5M with all that torque and all-wheel drive explodes out of corners. Get a track with tight low grip corners and the X5M has a really good chance of beating the M3. Because of the power, it may do well on a track with long straights. The biggest downside I feel for the X5M is it's brakes. There is just no getting around the 5,500 lbs.

i have both cars and i can see how depending on the track it could flip either way but i deff would NOT say there is no way a m3 would beat an x5m 100% of the time

Autoblog posted this afternoon a video of Alex Zanardi at Laguna Seca making a similar pass in 1996 as the X5 M did at the corkscrew turn at the Laguna Seca video in OP.
