The dealer I ordered mine through told me it would be here end of May or early June. Yes pricing has been listed, there is a few threads on here that show pricing.

Congrats! Do you plan to put anything on the roof? I am deciding between getting one of the lines (which come with flush roof rails) or just the SE (which does not come with any roof rail). The problem with the flush roof rails, versus raised roof rails, is that the Yakima rack system (Whispbar Flush Bar) i am eyeing does not support flush roof rails. BMW's own base support system supports flush roof rails but they are not as aerodynamic as the Yakima Whispbar and don't look as good.

BTW, love your WantAvant name. I am seriously considering ordering a F31 for European Delivery, thanks to Audi's decision not to bring the A4 Avant to the US - the taller allroad is not a replacement for Avent.

Thanks guys, I am getting the flush black rails, they come with the Msport package and I like the look . I wouldn't mind maybe throwing a color matched roof box on there for all my sons hockey gear in the future, but we will see when the time comes. Coilovers and wheels will be the first priority though

Thanks, haha. I had wanted a B8 Avant for years but never had the funds, and I feel the same way about the Allroad, no thanks. I just went through a divorce and I have wanted a new wagon forever, so I figured now is the time!

Very nice! That was my second choice behind White, but Space Grey would have took #1 for me too! Now we have the long damn wait. How is the A4 holding up these days??

The A4 is still rolling. Startup idle is pretty rough and the CEL comes on occasionally, but I think it should hold up for a few months...

I've been researching fitment for these cars and have a decent understanding of what should work, though it will definitely help to get the car and measure.

I'm curious if you were able to get much off of MSRP for the F31 or if the newness of the car and its limited supply limited your ability to "wheel and deal." I'm hoping to order one soon but am thinking I should wait a while.

Well my dealer told me he would for sure get me 1k off when the car gets here and we have been talking money down, payments, etc. He knows where I need to be and he says he can and will get me there. I will be leasing the car so I won't be putting too much down. So I guess I am not much of a help, but that is where I am at.

Have you been in touch with Jim Mannheimer at BMW of Salem? He was able to quote me a pretty good price on an European Delivery MY2013 F31. I want my pick-up date to be in mid-September so it will be a MY2014 F31. The MY2013 F31 has an end of production date in June.

congrats on the order!

Since you're leasing, what's the residual %?

Thanks. I will call Jim tomorrow. I emailed a bunch of dealers with what i wanted but haven't back from many yet. I hate talking to dealers but may have to get the F31 ordered.

I ordered my F31 today at BMW of Salem. He didn't have an allocation for one, so hopefully he can trade one or I'll likely have to wait until new allocations are issued next month.
