It already has haunted my dreams!!!! I had a dream last night that I went to the VPC, and the manager there was a freaking maniac. He went nuts on me for entering the facility. After he kicked me out, this redneck family picked me up from the VPC and tried to kill me. I'm not making this up either.

I really need this car so this madness can end.

BMW should include pre-delivery therapy for M cars.

I think you need therapy, seriously, not joking here; maybe you need to speak with someone.

Yea, they sure do know how to torture the waiting customers.

Anything they can do to slow up the process, they have done x2.

On another thread, it was widely agreed that most regulars on this forum have OCD. So, we are in group therapy here. He'll live...

No, not at all. If I had an M3 coming, I would be equally excited, and I am pretty sure most car nuts his age would too.

I FINALLY spoke to someone who knew what they're talking about: the head of West Coast Distribution at the Oxnard VPC. He was a very nice guy and gave me tons of helpful info. He said that my car is sitting in storage and will be released to a transport on March 3rd. It should be at South Bay no later than March 4th with a definite release of March 8th. One word: w00t.

Excellent news! My CA has consistently maintained that he sees an ETA to the dealer of 3/6, but up until now I had not seen anybody here confirm that cars will get to the dealers before the 8th

That is great news!!! Maybe I can cruise to the dealership and check out your car before I fly to NM and pick mine up the week after. Then again, that just might make my wait feel even longer.

Speaking of that, Excellere, how old are you? Seeing as how you're attenting UCLA. You in grad school or undergrad? (I know, I'm off topic on this one; just curious seeing as how you're getting brand new M3).

I'm 23 and an undergrad. Long story short, I graduated high school and skipped college to help my father rebuild his company. He had recently gotten out of rehab after a fifteen year drug addiction, which subsequently left his company (a high rise construction consulting firm based in Brooklyn, NY) in ruins. After I finished helping my father I applied to UCLA, got in, and have been there for the past three years. I'll be graduating in July 09. You could say the M3 is a gift for everything that I've accomplished over the past six-or-so years.

Thanks Xcellere! Which dealer did you get it at? I am currently going to USC but I live in SM, so I'll probably be seeing you around. I just made flight arrangements to pick up my car on the 15th!!!
