Here is the consensus and I do believe the markup will be higher than the M5 because it is a more affordable car thus creating a higher demand population
SoCal markup - at least 10K
NorCal markup - at least 15K
The reason why I only state CA is because they are going to be getting 90%+ of the allocation. With the exception of FL, there is NO state that compares with the # of cars that CA sells and thus they are going to get ALL the cars.
Therefore, if you have a #1 spot in Ohio or Virginia, you probably won't see a car until mid next year. This is a fact, I sat down with the branch manager and went over allocation statistics from last year with him.
