Wow sounds like the 2 is a huge hit. Should be. I loved it and am thinking about it to replace my 2006 IS250 next year. I've always loved pocket rockets. And that was just the 228. The M235 must be a...

So if you plan ahead, order a BMW say 2-3 weeks before a scheduled event which you attend, you can't use the $1000 on that car you ordered before the event? Sounds as if that pretty much rules out...
