My CA said that he heard the same thing about holding on to the cars till the March 8th launch, but he does NOT think they will be able to do it because he is sure the customers will not be happy or okay with it.

We will be driving soon

Congrats!!!

Isn't that a bit obsessive to be chillin at the port wating for the boat to arrive?



Congrats!

It would be helpful to know what your timeline was. When did you go status 153 for example?

Yeah, I let this one go by untouched. Considering Xcellere wouldn't let me see it, that is pretty noble of me.

As far as quoting can be considered letting untouched, though.

Early cars are going straight to the dealers, which means mine should be at South Bay late this week or early next. BMW's policy is to get the cars in and out of VPC as quickly as possible being they have limited space.

You're new name is Poseidon.



BTW folks, I didn't take the pics. Someone more obsessive than me on Bimmerfest.org took them.
