Mine's just "leaving the paint-shop"...

Yippee, just had confirmation that mines definitely at the point of being made (at last!). Just leaving the paint-shop and should be out of the factory in the next 10days...

Isn't the long wait excruciating...

Congrats! I remember how great it felt to see the status change from "Scheduled for Production" to "Waiting for Transport"

Now mine is on a ship and I hope to have her in 20 days. Here's to JZB E93 M3's!!

Rumor on the block is that precisely at the point of mixing your paint prior to spraying your car, the fattest German dude imaginable sneezed in the paint. You will soon be the proud own of a Goober Green Metallic M3. Congratulations

Well done dar! Not long now - can see the finishing line! I have done my first 1k. Need to do 200 miles in a week before the 1200 mile service! But for some reason my car is still saying I have ~450 miles to go till the next service?!

I knew JzB could look a shade of blue or even purple, depending on the light, but never realised it could look green as well!

Hey Berb, how come it's taken you so long to do 1,000 miles? You've had your car for nearly two months, haven't you?

When I do eventually get mine, I'll probably have about 3weeks to do 1200miles in. I really want to be past the break-in service before our roadtrip through France into Spain...
