M3 time is highly relativistic

Time is not a constant, as Einstein proved. In one of his lesser known proofs, he was able to show that time slowed in direct proportion to the desirability of the car you have just ordered.

T = f(cg)^3, where cg = car goodness factor.

As car goodness doubles, the perceived wait time increased by a factor of 8, according to Einstein.

Here are a few cg figures:

cg of Toyota Corolla = 1.3
cg of BMW 335i = 3.4
cg of M3 = 9.3
cg of Bugatti Veyron approaches infinity, but those able to afford this car have the means to warp time and thus get the car more quickly than you or I might think.

My M3 was completed on June 23 also, but I live in Arizona. Should be interesting to see which gets here first, my SA said the same thing - end of July, beginning of August. I think the east coast if supposed to be quicker. Anyone know what route the west coast boats take?

I read through the sticky: The Ultimate Order / Ship Tracking Guide!
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43692

It seems like it only takes about a week to build the car and the rest is just shipping. The car waits to be transported to the ship, about 11 days in the ocean, wait to get to the Prep Center, a week or two at the Prep Center, deliver to your state, and then a check up at your local dealer. Yeah tell me about it -_- Knowing my car is done... now the wait is just excruciating hahaha
