Davo2003, have you heard from Angela? The last info I had was my 2nd week Feb build was pushed back to 1st of March. Apparently this isn't supposed to impact delivery dates? My guess is delivery sometime April?

My driving experience Break-in in europe

Would I be able to control myself and adhere to the break in period on the Autobahn?
Drive the M3 through Austria, through Switzerland and to France speed limits in all three) before Driving back up to Germany and you will have your break-in done and can enjoy the back roads the Swiss the Austrians and French have made, then open it up on the Autobahn

From Germany

I got a few questions I am just a little confused. I am having my M3 shipped to California. My home of record is California, I am stationed in Texas. Once I get my Vin number I know I have to pay for the car. Do I get any type of papers on the car before it is put on the ship that I can use to register the car in Texas get plates to put on the car, then go to California and pick up the car from the port. I know if I register the Car in California my home of record they will kill me on taxes.

You should get a purchase order with the VIN and final price on it. I would suggest you go to your local DMV in Texas and find out exactly what you will need and how much $$$$ it will be to register your M3 in Texas. Then make sure you get the required DMV paperwork from your CA.
