New M3 and 1 series buyers - BEWARE
My Apr '08 Car & Driver issue mentions about this BAD TRIP - "A ship carrying a load of BMW M3s and 1-series listed severely during its trip to the U.S., damaging more than 370 BMW cars. Many of them will be scrapped; others that suffered less damage will be repaired and sold."
I suspect this means delays for those who were expecting their order to be delivered soon. But worse, some will get repaired cars. Ouch.
