Longest wait in history...

Well, it looks like I will finally get the M3Cv I have been waiting for for almost a year... We ordered one last April for July delivery that never happened... not sure what was up there. Ended up with a '12 650iCv that spent more time at the dealership than in my garage due to a passenger seat sensor issue that took 14 weeks to resolve. The dealership was remarkable and did everything they could do for me but the lack of communication with BMW Regional Manager () ticked me off so much that I traded my '11 535 and '12 650iCv on the MB S550 just to distance myself from BMW for a while until I calmed down... My wife held on to her X5 because she absolutley loved it... The tide has now turned.. This weekend, she is trading her beloved X5 on a GL550 (GORGEOUS!) and I am finally getting my '12 M3Cv... It's a bit early for a 'vert in the northeast but the deal we made couldn't be passed up... If you are in Central PA and you get passed by a white blur on I99 or I80... It's just me... All I can say is Hallelujah!

Pics to follow next week...

Nope... we washed our hands of it when we picked up the 650... When I found out that the Western PA Regional Manager that refused to talk to me didn't cover the Eastern portion of PA, we changed dealerships. We will be more than happy to give our business to a new Regional Sales Manager... It just sucks for the original dealership... We REALLY enjoyed working with them and the treated us VERY well. WE bought 6 cars in 5 years from them... C'est la vie...

I would not have ordered another one unless I knew exactly where the other one went. Strange.

We didn't order this one... The dealership knew we had been looking for one and called us when it came in... No fuss, no muss... no commitmenrs, no stress.. Called us on Tuesday, pick it up Friday!

But was it the same dealership? I am trying to figure out how I would act if I ordered a specific car, tracked it's progress and then it just never came in. Did they just say, "Hey, your M3 disappeared somewhere, but here is a nice 6 series"?

Sorry, for the confusion and glad you are able to enjoy one now, but I cannot understand the transaction here.

Different dealership and most importantly, different BMW Regional Sales Manager (or whatever his title is!)
The one we ordered last April went thru several different status updates with it even getting to a status 112 - "Production date set" being June 7 - 12 but ended up bouncing back to a 105 - "out of production period" status for some unknown reason. I actually loved the 650i (I know, "it's mot an M3...") but the seat issues were an enormous pain... 3 different OEM's for the seat sensor and 14 weeks at the dealership till they got it right. Got it back on a Friday at 2pm, traded it on the S550 at 6pm. Works out in the end...

Well, after the Regional "D-Bag" wouldn't speak to me, email me or in any way, shape or form reach out to me, I figured that he really didn't care about it very much so I opted to take my business elsewhere. Two major issues with deals the first being the "it's in production, oh wait, no it's not" scenario with the M3 and the seat mat sensor issue with the 650... PLEASE! If that was one of my clients I would be on a plane to see what the hell I coould do to make it right... Instead I got a "we'll give you new car as soon as we can get one built for you..." Yeah, just what I want... C 'vert in December in the northeast... Just in time to put it away for the winter... I'm done venting now...
