Dreams really do come true.

2013 BMW M3 Coupe, very well loaded. 6-8 week wait now begins. Current status is 112. Why is time passing so slowly!?

Pics to come when she comes in!

I just entered in my Production number into the tracker and it says my car is Space Gray, but my car is Le Mans Blue. Is that ok? Also, I have every package available, but I don't see the iPod integration. Is it standard?

You're fine! Congrats on the order... When I first looked up my car online it showed as an Alpine white 335. More than likely the dealer had a production slot and had a space gray car on order for general inventory. They gave you that slot though it will take a few days for your order particulars to show up. And don't worry about the iPod option, my car never showed all the options on my car but it was as ordered at delivery. To give yourself some piece of mind, you should have an order sheet with all the specs on your car. If it is there, you're good.

Thanks! Pics when she comes in, I promise! I don't see iPod adapter on my build sheet either and I have every package and almost every option available on the car.

Can you guys direct me to where I can get a license plate frame that hooks into the tow hook? I don't want holes drilled into the bumper.

Congrats on the new baby!

This will probably be the longest 6-8 weeks but sooooo worth it when you pick up the keys.

Looking at the BMW website and the options/packages available, they don't even list iPod adapter/integration as an option anymore. Assuming you got Navigation and the Premium Sound, it must now just be standard equipment...

congrats, welcome to M3 waiting hell. this is followed by M3 purgatory, where you actually have the rig, but can't open it up until your break in period is over.

Yet another good reason to take ED or PCD. By the time you get home, the car should be pretty close to broken in!

You do tend to go crazy waiting for the car to come in. My dealer had a truck in today and I could of sworn I saw it on there, even though it's been only two days I ordered it. LOL!

When I was at Bimmerfest last month, a vendor had them for sale. I'll try and find the card for that vendor and pass it onto you.

Rob

PS-Where in Maryland are you? I'm near Laurel. Are you getting the car delivered to the dealer, PCD, or ED?

It's very hard! The M3 has been a dream for me, so I'm a bit antsy.

I can only imagine, I have customer emailing me non-stop because the wait for a set or wheels is also 6-8 weeks and I can feel them getting more and more impatient and antsy by the day, but when they finally get those rims under their car they are the happiest people in the world! Can't wait to see pics of your car!

Insurance question, if I add the car to my insurance, even though I don't have it, will I have to pay for the weeks I don't have possession of the car?
