The salesman, Steve O'Brien of BMW of Fairfax in VA, said they don't have the prices nor the option configurations in yet, but that he will give them to me when they come.
Also was not able to give me a production number. Has anyone got a production number or date yet?
I'm likely to do this through Eu delivery. Steve said that for some high demand vehicles (eg the M3 or new 3 series convertable, BMW USA are not offering Eu delivery) but that the 530i is likely to still have Eu delivery available. He'll know in a few weeks.
So far the experience has been all positive. I'll post updates on how this goes.
