Talking Dealer gets our batmobile on 8th January !!!

My husband called the dealer today in order to get some info about the winter tyres and... the surprise is... it appears that our new baby (the batmobil) should be here ALREADY the week nro 2 in January !!! That, my dear fellows is, NEXT week !!!

So, if the car gets in Luxembourg on the 8th Jan, the paper work etc takes +/- 1 week which means that we should be driving our own little M3 before mid-January !!!

okay, I just needed to share this information with someone who might understand how I feel right NOW and the logical place is the m3 forum, right ? I think I won't be able to stop smiling for the next 48 hours at least ! Sleepless nights here we come

Thanks ! Yep, it's all black - that's why the dealer promised us the batman hood to go with it when we go pick it up (I should really get the black catwoman gear instead)

Thooooorgal, cheers and YES call your dealer BTW, did you order the carbon fiber roof ? When we ordered ours (end of November) there was an 8 week delay on any orders with the carbon fiber roof due to supply problems at the manufacturer who makes them. Hopefully they have resolved those problems by now and the production is back to normal. We got the sunroof, that's probably why ours is supposed to be here already next week !

I'm sure the item in question is obvious and I'm just tunneling right now...

But elaborate on what a Batman hood, and catwoman gear are please?


Oh! And congrats on the great news about the car. I expect pictures of every sort!

The thing is - I absolutely LOVE driving. This might be due to my Finnish origins, in Finland driving is almost like a national sport - after all the F1 champion Kimi Raikkonen (+ the former champions Mika Hakkinen & Keke Rosberg) are Finns as well as the rallye drivers Gronholm, Vatanen etc.

Driving a car like the M3 is pure so the only thing the arrival of our new baby is going to do to our marriage is that we'll be sitting in the car and arguing about who's driving instead of sitting on the sofa and arguing which TV channel to watch

Very impressive that Bastet knows not only about Kimi, but Mika and Keke also!!! Being an F1 junkie I can appreciate that. Congrats on your car. I think this will be the first jet black car on this board and since that is what I'm ordering I can't wait to see your pics.

Cheers to all F1 junkies I grew up watching F1 and still am a bit addicted (at least as long as there's Finns driving). And now Kimi is at Ferrari - THAT is just fantastic IMHO !

Minor correction though, our baby will be Jerez black so sorry for the disappointment when you'll see the first photos.

Thanks for the correction....I'm still looking forward to seeing pics!! As you can see by my avatar I'm a huge Ferrari F1 fan and hope that Kimi can repeat!

It has arrived !!!

Yes, yes, yessssssssssssssss!!! The car has arrived to Luxembourg ! Our dealer confirmed us the chassis and our new license plate numbers today.

I know this "thread is worthless without pics" so please don't start that just yet. We still need to get the paperwork sorted for the VAT exemption and that takes roughly 3-4 days so probably we'll get it only in the beginning of next week. (+ one minor detail which needs to be taken care of also => payment of the car)

You know the expression "so close and yet so far" ? Well, that's how I feel right now. The car is HERE and yet it seems to be so far still... Never mind, patience is a virtue (that I unfortunately don't have ).
