Congrats on the beautiful car! Sounds like you had an amazing time, next time i get a car it will defiantly be this way.
On a side note... Your video = kinda lame. Brand new M3 and you follow a mini van for 2 minutes? I was hoping with that music and that mini van we were in for a fly by, guess you were taking it easy on her during break in? Redemption video is most certainly necessary.

I had a friend that did PCD on an `01 3er coupe with his dad, I've since been jealous.

How far a drive home would PCD still be worth it ?

a interesting question brought up on how far a drive home would a PC delivery still be worth it.

Some interesting read are here

... but on the side note poster blacksapphireZ made a good point

No, as far as I know. It is a delivery program just like European Delivery is. Factory orders only.

So when you do this, does it mean that your car is American made?

Mine is made in Germany and being shipped for PCD.

The ship docks in NJ and the car gets a truck to the Performance Center.

Are you really only given one date to accept for performance center delivery or can you change it?

Never mind, I just got word...

"In the event your customer is unable to take advantage of this date, you have the option of canceling the reservation or you can provide us with 3 alternate days that meet your customerís schedule. Alternate dates must fall within 10 working days (Monday thru Friday) after the original assigned date above. Again, dates are assigned according to your customerís production number and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. For obvious reason, Fridays are typically the days that fill up first."

I'm set for 6/11/10...
