Congrats and I'm a big fan of New Order as well. Did you get the Bizarre Love Triangle themed floor mats?

Still waiting on approval for production. Seems I've seen others say 3 weeks has been par.

Sounds just like mine except I opted out of the I phone / Sirius / Stereo stuff and included ZCP. Also, I went with the Fox Red / Black / Black interior and fold down rear seats. You might want to take a look at the rear seat option - provides lots of utility for not much $$ and it can't be retrofitted later.

Like you, I couldn't find a local dealer interested, so used Irv in Chicago for ED w/ PCD. Pickup in Munich confirmed (6th ED over last 25 years) w/ final delivery again in SC some time later.

The really good thing is you can change any options right up until a few days before the car actually enters production - food for thought (and the ability to obsess over your choices :-)

Now the wait begins!

Thanks. "Have spent far too much time reviewing options" according to my wife.

Didn't love wheels on ZCP package. Have had a 330i for 5 years and have been ok without the fold down option. But can see why some would like.

When I find out when I get approved for production, how much time is there to make changes before the actual build?

Also one last silly question. For those who have found defects at time of pickup how does one resolve when you're in South Carolina and do local dealers balk considering you've purchased somewhere else?

bad choice, we all know E90s are not real M3s. notice they don't have the M3 stamp on the underside of the hood.

I didn't like the ZCP wheels either which is the only reason I didn't go ZCP. Also they weren't forged.

You have quite a bit of time before production. However I wouldn't make changes past a month before build. It only takes 1-2 days to build the car, so you have time. But depending where the car status is in, it becomes more difficult for your dealer to contact people at BMW to change the config. If the build date is June 1 I wouldn't be making changes after May 1... unless desperate.

I had one issue when I picked the car up... but they fixed it right at the Welt in 10 minutes. Of course I was in Munich... so does not apply for you.

Go 6MT! You'll get so much more enjoyment out of your ride than simply mashing buttons.
