Original Post from 9-5-2012:
Yup... I didn't think I'd be this excited, but I am.

335xi
Alpine White over Coral Red, brushed Aluminum w/ black gloss
18" 397's
ZSL
ZDH
ZPP
2TB Sport Auto (wife will be primary driver)
Heated seats, no ZCW
609 Nav, no ZTP
6WA Extended Cluster

Should go in week 39... with a bit of luck I'll have it before Thanksgiving.

The hardest part was deciding on tires... I had it in my head that I'd get the summer rubber since I have a set of winters that *should* fit the F30... but I talked myself out of it and will stick with the all-seasons. I have a couple weeks to make changes, so I suppose I can change my mind.

Excited me is excited.

build, production, timeline, assembly, shipping, port, tracking, order, wait
