F10 M5's. More imports that NZ new?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if there would be more F10 M5 imports than NZ new? I thought this could be the case from when the pound was weak when the cars were new?

Probably.  Both JP and UK imports.

I haven't seen many Jap M5s come in, most have been ex-UK. As for total numbers, that's an interesting question. I would say no, not yet but this will change as they get a few years older, especially in UK.

Just out of curiosty, I double checked the number of NZ new F10 M5s, and in total there were 111 of them over the whole life cycle. So I would be very surprised if there were more imports here than that number. In coming years there will be a few more imports come through I would think, but not yet. Getting the info for the used stuff is a lot harder, as people can register anything as an "M5" when it comes in as a used import, so you have to sort the wheat from the chaff and cut out all the "520i M5" and "M5" with "Engine Size:2,000cc"!

Wow, 111 is a big number and a lot more than I would have thought.  Do you know how many of those are LCI?  I’m on the lookout for one.

57 Pre-LCI, and 54 LCI.

Still looking for the import numbers.
