E, find another dealer. Didn't you see the post by a new guy who called around until he landed a 112? That was a few days ago. Just before that there was a dealer on here advertising his 112. It took him a few days to fill it. Call every single BMW dealer around the country, and I bet you'll be in a better spot than the one you are in now. Good luck man.

Find dealers in no-name areas like Kansas or South Dakota that probably have no M3 sales yet. To start you off, try this:

Well, they say BMW pulled the allocations back. If true, I don't see how they are at fault for that single occurence.

just seems like they are running you around in circles.

My SA also told me I would have the first M3 from my dealership. Yesterday I go in and he shows me that 2 are coming in, one for the Boss and one for soem rich guy that payed 10k over. So be it mine will be a week after his at MSRP. Gvieing you a different allocation number means they replaced you. Carful you dont trust them to much that they can toss you around without worries.

The worst part is not only the black hole we're in, it's not having a line of communication open while Newbold and NA get on the same page.

Ep, Have you called that KS dealer Xcell posted... I'm all over it if you haven't yet.

South Dakota... Idaho, New Mexico... I guess I'm gonna burn a whole day on the phone tomorrow. This car's costing me just to get it lined up...

Woohoo! My SA didn't know the name of the ship but said that it is scheduled to arrive at port on the 27th!!! The only bad thing is that I'll have to wait for it to travel to New Mexico before I can pick it up.

Call BMW NA today in regards to my status. Although he didnt say the status has changed he did mention that he can not tell if the car is already on a boat or not. But he did sound like he was holding something back.

could it be we set sail today or tomorrow???

Have you found it through NYK Lines site? Where? When I search schedules for Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme it cannot find any results.

didnt get taht info from NYK Lines. From doing more research BMW ships with other carriors as well like K-lines and this Ingolstadt

But again this is all speculation.

What I heard from my SA is its going to set sail today no ship name or anything yet but I am just doing my own reasearch trying to find out all ships leaving Bremerhaven.
