Positive, it already cleared the VPC and should be at the dealer early next week.

That's my exact interior you posted, only mine has the M Audio speakers.

I'm going to let you know the day I'm picking it up, that way you can stop by, say hi and check it out.

Congrats Xcellere! Let us know when you pick up your car...my car is supposed to arrive at the NY/NJ port on Feb 25, and my CA told me I won't be able to get the car until after March 8. Is there anything in writing that your CA gave you regarding your pre-launch date delivery?

The car will be at the dealer early but I can't pick it up until the 8th.

That's going to be a long couple weeks! Maybe you'll have visiting priveleges? I'm, hopefully, only a week or so behind you.

bummer...but maybe the dealer would let you sleep in it until the 8th? you can pay up on the 7th, and at midnight, you can spin your way out of the lot!

That will be pure torture knowing it's at the dealer and you can't drive it. I have a feeling I may have the same dilemma with my car.

Sadly I'm nutty enough to do that.

And bad news: just spoke to the dealer, apparently BMW is holding the car at the VPC until March 8, which it will then ship to the dealer on March 8 and not a day before. He also said I won't know the lease price until the day I pick the car up.
