That's how I got my car. March '08 build, arrived at dealer in September of '08, sat there for 18 months until I bought it in April of 2010 with 280 miles on it, 10 of which were my test drive. They got this car allotted to them along with half a dozen loaded or nearly loaded cars over that 18 month period, and in keeping with the times the haves had to have, so the ones who just wanted all the options on the latest and greatest M car snapped up the loaded-up cars within a few weeks of arrival but my car with only a couple of options sat there waiting for someone who appreciated less idrive and more headroom...
