Most who have taken Performance Center delivery have given glowing reviews. The performance delivery includes a paid night at the local Marriott and dinner for you and a guest. Following day they cover your breakfast then shuttle you to the delivery center where you spend the day doing three things. 1. Tour of plant/museum 2. Mini-autox and playing around with similar car 3. Delivery of your car. The Vehcile Preparation Center is right there, so if there are any problem they can fix it on site. You do need to pay your dealer about a week before taking delivery, however.
Another advantage is you KNOW your delivery date well in advance. You ask for Performance center Delivery as early as Status 111. They accept the order, and recode it as a 9 to ensure that it gets to them in time. This happens about 56 days (8 weeks) before delivery. The the PC contacts your salesman with the earliest possible date, and then you accept that or request something later (to match with other life items, like work). Once you agree upon a date. THAT is your delivery date.

Great info! Now I can bother my dealer again. Do you think the similar car will be the new M this spring or E46 M3's for a while longer? Love the E46 but would like to get feet wet in the E92.
