Erm, yes? Why would you add the car prior to picking it up/paying for it/completing the transaction at the dealer?

Are you doing PCD?

Nope. I just thought I could add it on and tell them when I'd be taking delivery.

Wait until you take delivery unless you are shopping for a new provider. Then you may want to get some quotes in advance...

Congrats!! A week to build, and then hopefully just a few more weeks to cross the pond. The anticipation is killer.

Great color combo!

Hmmmm.....moonroof?

I did not have the luxury of ordering my car. After an extensive search and deft car trading by Passport, I found my car 100 miles away in Pennsylvania. At the time a CF roof was one on the "must have - no compromise" list. Well long story short...after almost a year driving my M3 with a moonroof - ironically, I don't think I would have it any other way. Aesthetically, I like the solid billet of metal look my car imparts. Generally, I find that the moonroof enhances my M3 driving experience. I especially savor late night drives in the mountains with the roof open - stars blazing - wind rushing - M3 purring!

I'm reminded of an ol' Stones' tune...

No, you can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need

BTW what are the chances of encountering another E92 M3 with moonroof on Glen Road?

I'm off of Piney Meetinghouse! The only M3 I've seen in the area is in the neighborhood across from mine, in Palatine. It's an AW M3 with LED angels. His car looks real good. I actually ordered mine with a moonroof because I like driving with some sort of ventilation at night on cool nights. It also helps when you just want to hear the V8 roar.

That's what the recording told me on Monday. 4 more days and she'll be completed!

I will be sure to flash my lights as a sign of congratulations as I pass Glen and Piney Meeting House. Nice to have another M3 in the area especially since M3s are so rare, and Porsches seem to be ubiquitous.

What line? Give us the name of the boat... If it is a Wallenius Wilhelmsen boat you can use http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp or at least that used to be the website. You can enter the car's VIN and it will tel you the boat etc. If it's not on a WW boat, google ship tracking as there are several sites to track international shipping...

Shows the Integrity is currently in Southampton and is due to arrive in Baltimore on 10/13 so that is next Saturday...

Edit: Even better, here is the map showing the Integrity at the dock in Southampton UK...

Congrats. Man that was quick. Mine was on a boat on the 19th (before your build date), and if you get your car next week you may get yours before me.

Hope they all come soon This wait is killing my and my wallet. The parts pile keeps getting bigger and bigger the more I wait.

Looks like it'll be at least two weeks. If it lands next Sat, it'll be at the port for a couple days(Add on the CF spoiler) and by the time it gets on the truck, and gets delivered, I'm guessing that's another week.

You could get lucky. I've never had the add-ons at the VPC like you are having done but it has never taken more the seven days from landing to taking delivery. You could have it by the following Saturday, the 20th! Either way, you'll be driving the new car for Halloween!
