Pre-Delivery Questions

I have a few questions that I want to address to my CA prior to taking delivery of my vehicle.
From reading these posts, I want to make sure my list is complete - as I am sending him an email later today.
1) - The iPOD/USB Cable - Some said they were not receiving
2) The DVD being the 2008.1 release
3) The floor mats, and having the //M ones.
4) DO NOT install front license frame
5) Financing. I am trying to get them to match penfed or my banks interest, which is the same 4.25.

Anything else that I am missing. Thanks to everyone for the help.

its kinda hard to help out here given that we don't know your specific situation and what questions you should potentially have. i'd also tell them to keep the damn mileage low!!!!!

A diaper for when you poop your pants when you sit in your new car.

What other bank is offering 4.25%, as I want to try to get the dealer to match that rate and only telling them about PenFed might not be enough.

We we have a very good relationship with Bank of the West and they are offering this as an equity line on my home. Yes I know its completely different situation but it can't hurt to ask.

Anyone have any thoughts about whether to let the dealer wash or not?

I picked mine up yesterday 4/19. The guy that detailed my car at the dealer was totally into his job, in fact when I walked back to look at my car in the service area, I ended up talking to him for about 10 minutes regarding detailing, etc.

He did it all by hand and my car looked perfect, no swirls or marks of any type.

Some folks on here are a little more anal about this stuff then I, however I couldn't have done a better job on the detailing if I'd done it myself.

Get them to thrown in a quart of oil as well as a BMW oil bottle holder.
