It's official, she's home and built to the right spec!

After what seems like an eternity, she's finally home! The folks in Greer, SC were super nice. Thanks to Steve Thomas BMW for being my advocate. As of now, I am being taken care of; airfare and a free performance exhaust for the trouble.

I decided to take a little detour driving back to Washington, DC and do a section of skyline drive. FYI, weekday evenings are FANTASTIC! No law enforcement, and I only saw a handful of cars in my hour+ on the road. GREAT drive!

Please ignore the image artifact seen as a bumper blemish in the photo below. It's a problem with my iPhone and I forgot to grab my good camera!

Congrats man, the car looks beautiful. I am really happy to see that BMW threw in an upgraded exhaust for you. You deserve it.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Congrats. This one looks so much better than Atlantic blue.

Needs Euro license plates though. I'm tired of our 4:3 plates. Why can't it be an option? :

Glad it all worked out. Why SC? Just curious since the DMV area has a few BMW dealerships.

The BMW factory and performance center is located there. Originally, the 3 options were Euro Delivery, Performance Center Delivery, or Steve Thomas BMW deilvery. I was planning ED, followed by PCD.

Since I live in the DC area, SC seemed the easiest this time around.

After the whole color debacle, I'm sure I could have demanded a local dealer, but it is against conventional wisdom to attempt delivery at a dealer other than the one who sold you the car.
