: Finally here! (Well, almost...)

I'm thrilled! :freakdanc I got to see and try my new X3 today! It took 7 weeks to arrive, well worth it!
I ordered it in Braman Miami although I am moving back to New York. I couldn't resist; I also figured I could save some time. I am also glad I did, the Sales persons there were very professional and courteous even friendly. There's a little more paperwork involved because I ordered a NY tag. They were a little puzzled at first when I asked for the weather package. They don't get it often here! :D They were suppose to ship it directly to NY but since my sales person couldn't get a hold of the Service center in Manhattan to coordinate the final details, he decided to have it shipped here in Miami, have the little extra work done in his center and then truck it to NY. I had him installed the chrome kidney grilles that I got on EBay and the chrome exhaust pipes (See links below). I also added the Satellite Radio. He threw as freebies a set of rubber mats and gave me a set of key just in case the truck driver lost them. I will pick it up in NY in a week. Thanks to this great site and its members I got a lot of tips to make this happen smoothly! :thumbup:
