Monsta, can you go back to the BMWNA lot, have that tech guy take one of the 19" wheels off, and weigh it? I know you can do this. Actually, you are probably only person who can do this.

If the VIR has been dated before the phone call you made to BMW to obtain the production week, you're set.

If I go with the BBS wheels, I'll send you my stock wheels that I'd be taking off, and you can put them on your current car and drive around while you are waiting for your VIR.

I did too. He hasn't trasnfered the spot yet. Apparently, still trying to find a dealer who wants to trade with him.

I have been calling dealers today. Lots.

Oh well, maybe I just won't get one.
