Hi All..I took delivery of my MW M3 yesterday.. I was bit disappointed not with the car but with the packages I had to purchase to protect the car in the longer run...As I didn't know price of these packages, I don't know whether I purchased them at the right price. Now I have start a thread to get some suggestions on these packages....Car is a stunner...MW looks more beautiful in person.....

While stalking my car through webcams, I discovered all these weird ship enthusiasts. They take pictures of ships and talk about them online. What a bunch of weirdos.

Agreed.

I honestly think your car never made it to the docks until the 21st of May and BMW knew and you were given the run around. Seen it happen before. I am glad you got your car and exhaust for your time but still I probably would have given up and went with another M3 from a different dealer.

My car arrived at the dealership overnight on Friday while I was on vacation. I got back Saturday with just enough time to check it out in the new car prep area. She looks beautiful! This week, the dealer will install all my Dinan stuff and the BMW performance CF rear spoiler and I hope to take delivery by Thursday. So excited.

FWIW, it looks like Tamesis docked last Sunday 5/19. My car went from in transit to waiting for a shipping vessel again on Tuesday. On Thursday, it went back into in transit and showed up at the dealer sometime overnight on Friday. My CA said it was there Saturday morning when he got in.
