so here's my day...

I arrive at my dealership,

Reworked the numbers including the holiday credit, even better deal....go to finance...sign all the papers, cut my check...

My CA comes to get me, M3 floor mats in hand, we walk out to thel ot to my car (forward facing in the parking stall), he give me the key fobs and I unlock the doors for him to put in my floormats. I stay at the the rear of the car, snap a quick pic of the badge (for a quick fb upload ) and then open the trunk to put my messenger bag in the trunk. I come around to the driver side, open the door....see the steering wheel and notice there are NO PADDLE SHIFTERS....I quickly look over to the center console and....IT'S A MANUAL.

So, I let my CA no I ordered 2 clutches not one....we go upstairs and check the order and build sheet. My order started out as a DCT but when another customer wanted to change his E90 M3 order from DCT to manual on the same day my order was put in (about 5 minutes apart) the production numbers got swapped and mine got manual and his got DCT....


So where does that leave me....currently my CA has located an almost exact build E90 M3 to mine locally...he's contacting them now to try and see if he can get that car for me (it has sunshades and heated seats, my order did not). The extra cost my dealer will eat if they can get this M3...if not...I'm putting in my order again and extending my lease E60 lease with the holiday credit getting factored into my cap cost...

will keep you guys posted.....

gene - that really really sucks. So much anticipation and then finding out it's not perfect, Oh man I would have been pissed! I hope they are able to get that other M3 for you and you don't have to re-order.

that seems a bit too long, have you talked to your CA? Is it stuck at the VPC or something?

I'm still waiting as well. Mine has been stuck at the VPC since 11/24. Nobody can tell me why either. I'm going down tomorrow to harass my CA into finding me some answers...

Mine's ordered through Stevens Creek. I finally got answers as to what is happening. There is a problem in the wiring harness going to the passenger side mirror which is requiring a new harness...apparently this is going to take 3-4 weeks to get and install because the new ETA for arrival at my dealer is Dec 24!!!

I'm thinking this might be a new record for longest VPC wait ever.
