I'm sure you will be sleeping in the dealer all this days.

I'm guessing you will the first member with speed cloth. Can you take some pictures?

Unfortunately the SO won't let me - too much shoveling to do! But she did OK my crazy-ass drive in really nasty conditions to see the beast!

Congrats on being able to see your car. I just saw a IB/Silver M3 at the dealer but because of the rain, they weren't allowing test drives. Rain is much better than snow. The waiting will be hard but at least you know you are close to getting it.

I know your pain. I have been unable to pick up my car since March 6th because of the weather upstate NY. Hopefully we will get a break on Monday. Hang in there. Your car Looks Fantastic.

^ what's your buddy's name, the god of the winds?

That looks like a pretty crazy storm, rvacha. sux you can't grab it.

I just got back from my receiving dealership where I met up with Xcellere who, unfortunately couldn't take delivery today either... his paperwork for the car, enroute via DHL, was stuck in possibly the same storm!

I did get a drive tho... words don't do it justice.

I was wondering where your car was. Great news; congrats!

How is the Jerez looking in person?

Maybe Epacy can broker a deal with the weather gods?

Looks OK, but the dealer's garage lighting was very dim and not so white. I have a Carbon Black M5 and Jzb did not strike me as being bluer as some have reported, but I think I need real sunlight to make a final conclusion

I failed to pick up my car today for the same reason: that stupid storm in Ohio. DHL's processing center is in Ohio, and my paper work was sent from New York. I'm picking my car up on Monday now.

I still think P is behind this...

The wait gets twisted and the anticipation is upped for rvacha and Xcellere. Hang in there guys!

I couldn't leave the house as I'm in Ohio as well - Out the door and I was past my knees in snow, unreal. I would have NEVER imagined that our storm would have stopped x from getting his car, especially as I was picturing in my my mind the fun he was having on the other side of the country.
