Sorry to burst your bubble, but I believe the sedan from Classic was picked up Monday if not Saturday evening, from what my CA told me.

It was picked up Saturday from what I remember a portal telling me when I was there Saturday afternoon.

Well my car is on a truck right now headed for Advantage Midtown. From what I hear it should be in Houston this weekend. I am going to have it shipped up to ND so if you guys want to get a look at it our just tell me how it looks that would be fine too. I think it will probably be gone Monday as I want that sexy beast yesterday!

That's great Domer. I'm going to try and get up to Mid-town Saturday morning to go for a test drive with a buddy of mine, maybe we'll see your car. My car is on the boat and should be here by early April. How long did it take for your car to leave Charleston?

I called your boy Ricardo at Advantage in Mid-town the other day and he had no idea you guys were filming the test drive last Saturday. He seemed to be pretty cool about it though. Hopefully, they'll still have a car I can drive when I go up there on Saturday. If Domer's car is there maybe I'll slip a big steak under his seat to compliment the trout and complete the Texas surf and turf

What time are you going down to Advantage? I wouldn't mind taking some more video/pics from a chase car perspective. Perhaps take some lower ground photos when you come into that curve by the monument.

Did you guys get on a WW ship or an NYK line? Thanks and congrats on the cars. I'm still waiting at the port!

I actually got on a K-line ship. And there was no way to verify my VIN# or track the ship itself. Very annoying

Gasman....I got on the WW ship "Integrity". My car was put on it Monday but the BMW OC and the WW web tracking didn't update and show my car on the ship until yesterday. Should dock in Charleston 3/29....then hopefully another week until she is here in Houston

I've got to get there pretty early...probably around 9:30. We just moved into a new house and I'm trying to wittle down my "to do" list. I'm going to call Ricardo this afternoon to make sure they haven't sold the demo. If they haven't, I'll be there at 9:30...hope to see you.

Thanks fellas. I'm actually hoping to get a K-line ship now as I have missed the Integrity that left on Monday. K-line ships sail to SC in 10 days vs 19 days for WW. Also there are more ships leaving each week.

One pro to missing the boat and catching K-Line is that the boat is smaller and faster.

I went and drove the e90 this morning and I'm really impressed. Apparently, another CA had a deal pending on the car so we only got a chance to putt around downtown but you can tell there is a beast that is just dying to be unleashed.

My buddy and I left around 11:30 and Ricardo knew a white e92 was to be delivered today but it hadn't arrived by the time I left. Domer...you are going to love your car. I still have about three weeks but getting a taste of what's to come made my wait a whole lot easier.

I picked up my car last night, and ooh baby im on clould 9.

i got to drive a red demo at the dealership, and they let me take it out alone. I really got to open it up. So now i have a taste of what lies beneath the hood. Meanwhile im putting around in my M3 under 3500 rpm. I cant wait to cut her loose.

I woke up this mornig and realized that my dream car is sitting in my f***ing garage...unreal.
