Fantastic Xcellere!

Looking forward to the first member review of a US spec car...You know, how does it deal with American pot holes and asses (it seems that ours are bigger than Euro asses so the seats are different) and that sort of thing.

Did you see your car being unloaded? Could you see how many M3s were on the ship?

No Pot Holes in Ca ? Are you kidding me we have the most pot holes in the world. You usually know something is wrong with the roads when you have the most cars in the world clogging up the highways.

Don't tell that to your illustrious mayor...

Xcellere: Nice, man. Good to see the boat (and hopefully the car) made it over safe. Almost time!

My car was loaded on a boat on Feb 1st, but I was never able to figure out which one. My sales person was tracking it for me. The 800 help line told me that it should be in the US by the end of this week or next week. MY CA said it should be in my hands by the end of Feb.

Seriously His whole plan to fix every pot hole in the city is crap. I have bent three sperate rims and broke one completely in the last three rims. It sucks running on low pros in this city.

The first confirmed West Coast customer car landing! I hope I'm only 3 weeks behind you. I've heard the early cars will be held at VPC until just before March 8. Any info on that?
