I completely disagree. After traveling the world and having lived in Boston for 4 years, I believe Los Angeles has some of the best roads in the country. The ground never freezes, which is a primary cause of potholes.

You may have bent some rims, but noone even bothers with low profile tires in places like Boston. You would be throwing money away. I've popped 3 regular 17" sport tires driving there. LA is a paradise.

I live in Boston. Tell me about it!

I lived in CA for 11 years. The roads are like a dream compared to here...

IMHO Montreal is the worst city in NA. If I lived there I would seriously have to consider owning an ///M at all

It's already well established that Xcellere cannot get fat, hence he wants Euro seats.

So, think they have a rule about you getting in and taking a couple laps too?

Will seeing your car be somewhat torturous? I mean kinda like going to a strip club...fun to see, but can't touch it and probably won't take it home...? No pictures even? C'mon!

j/k Great news brotha!

Can't take pictures? Is that a joke?
What absurd reason did they give for that?

That's been the policy for like forever. Not sure why for sure, but could have to do with
1. Don't want competitors to see what's hot, what's not sales-wise
2. Random test mules arriving
3. Cars don't look overly pretty just off the boat

Just a guess...

Perhaps you could talk some nice person into telling you when its schedualed to leave VPC? I know your CA said it would be the 8th, but it would be nice to substantiate that story.

That's the policy, but they have allowed some people touring the facility to take pics under supervision, so when they hear your story, they might let you take pics of your own car only...

My trip got cancelled. Some higher up told my contact customers aren't allowed in. Oh well, it was worth a shot. Only 12 days away anyway.

They build you up and then they bring you down.

I swear this car is like a f-ing top secret mission.

Well, plenty pics in 12 days!

It will come sooner than you think!

BTW, your profile says you have an 08 M5 as well?

lol, darn!! I was just going to send you a PM and ask how you set that up so that I could go check out my car as well. Oh well, another couple of weeks isn't going to kill me I guess.

Too bad Xcellere. This will haunt your dreams.

Speaking of dreams. After I got my order in I had some dream about doing paperwork for my car or something like that. Isn't that nuts!! This thing is so ingrained in us it's affecting our subconscious.
