That really sucks. Sorry. Bummer you took your deposit back from Timsev, but I bet he'd take you back! I'll ask my dealer to see what they have available.

Yeah, guess I should have waited until the order went 150 before getting my deposit back.
If I went back I wouldn't get a car until May probably. It would have 19s, but 3 months away. That's if they didn't stick me at the bottom of any list they might have.

Well, not until it went 150, but more like until you got your name on the order as documented by a VIR. They can't screw with you after that without you raising hell with BMWNA. Anyway, that's really a bummer. I sent my dealer an email, so I'll let you know what he says. I checked with him about a potential discount on my car and he said MSRP by the way.

Sorry to hear this Epacy. My CA took my order today for what will probably be a May delivery. I'm OK with that as the weather's bad enough here that it's probably not worth having it before then. I can certainly understand wanting it sooner though.

Dude... don't do this to us or yourself. There's gotta be an allocation available somewhere.

Do you want my old (#4) spot with Newbold, it's still available...

Also, were you "for reals" about 150 status?

That's what he told me. He said he tried to call yesterday and this morning.

How much is the transport service you are looking at? Where are you going to have it dropped?

He tried to call...me?

Not sure on transport yet, I was going to try and have a courtesy delivery done. If not, I will have it transpoted through Horseless Carriage

I have heard nothing but positive feedback on these guys...

Uh oh, they misspelled collectors (coolectors) on the front page under "Enclosed Transport".
Doesn't look good...

I'll keep them in mind if I need such service.
Did you get a quote?

Hhhmmm...well, you do have to be pretty cool to call yourself a "private collector"

no quote yet, from all accounts they are reasonable though.

When I moved to Boston from SanFran, my employer ended up paying $1200 to ship my car.

I was referring to E's options. Yes, you should probably stay away from PCD. I have my SA checking for PCD openings, but I am not optimistic that he'll come up with something April.
