Very nice, Timbo! Mine is in the paint shop. The scheduled completion date is 4/20, but maybe mine will finish early too.

And you're right about the wait... I'm thinking we're still at least a month away from seeing our cars.

Thanks Runedub. I was gonna ask how yours was coming along. It should be done soon too. Think mine was only in the paint shop for a couple days before it was complete.

The wait sucks....but oh well. I got myself a diecast scale model of the M3 coupe...pretty cool. Something to play with while I wait for the real one.

So Timbo, any news on your car? Is it almost here?

I just heard from my CA this morning that my car is finally on the ship. It was sitting at the port waiting for a vessel for almost 2 weeks. He said the car should be ready for delivery by the end of May. Haha, I guess I'm coming down the home stretch now. I can't wait!

Hey Runedub. That's good news on your car. Mine is scheduled to port here on 5/8 on the Rhea Leader! I'm super excited! I still expect it to be a few weeks before it goes to the preparation center and then to the dealership.

The wait has been rough. I just keep finding more stuff to buy. Got a long list of mods I want already and I'm about to spend over $500 on things for cleaning and detailing it.

Very nice, Timbo! So close!

I hear you on the list of mods and the detailing items. Trying to prioritize what to get first LOL.

Got my M3 tonight!

I can't believe the wait is finally over. I picked up my M3 today and it was well worth the wait. Got everything I wanted on it. Here are a few pics. Feels great to drive...such a tease not being able to floor it or pass 5500 rpms...but I still love it. Taking a long drive up to Santa Barbara this weekend to break it in. Should be a sweet ride. More pics to come!

Congrats. It's a beauty.

What did you finally do about the alarm situation, by the way.

Thanks! I ended up making a deal on the alarm and install...should be getting it done next week with my 1200mi service. They guaranteed the car came prewired for it...so any additional work they have to do is on them. Still paid more than the $400 it would have been if I order it initially...but oh well. Car is here!! I can live with paying a few hundred more.

Nice: I'm 'green' - still have 13 days to go. Yes, reckon the 1,200 will go fast but you're right: it's a tease.

Good stuff....13 days isn't too bad. It will go by quick. Reading as much as I could on this forum kept me busy.
