Nice choice! Thats actually the same interior I initially wanted then I did a complete 180 and got Fox Red. Also a side note your probably not as obsessive about the Cepheus's position but if you go to the panama canal website you can actually view live feed cameras. I caught this picture of a NYK ship that resembelse the Cepheus last night but I know its way to early for our ship to be there already

Question

Does anyone know if I can get a delivery of a M3 at the Performance Center on a certain date if I make a deal and order very early? Say four months early and be certain of a delivery date. I would like to plan a vacation around a Performance Center delivery and need to arrange time off around work.

Will they hold the car at the port or the Center for awhile just to be sure it is there when I get there?

I talked to a local dealer and I am not sure.

Thanks.
