Dealer Delivery Requests

Taking delivery of an M4 later this week...any annoying things that dealers did that I should keep an eye out for and/or tell them not to do?
Thanks

Ummm, not really, but what I'd would do is check your alignment (..my wheel is a tad off center and the dealer will correct it at my 1200 mile check-up), and check the molding around the windshield; in between the CF roof and the windshield. Mine is damaged, so the dealership will need to replace it. Other than that, I had no issues.

If you're particular about blemishes and minor imperfections, I'd look into the process the dealer has regarding cleaning & preparing new vehicles for delivery.

The people that make the least amount of money in the entire dealership, are the same individuals that are cleaning your vehicle for delivery - some take better care than others in the process.

Dirty car wash equipment, towels laying on the ground (used on multiple vehicles) and inexperienced personnel wielding buffers, can make your decision an easy one...

I opted to have my vehicle delivered as is and handled the cleaning & detailing myself - but I'm extreme regarding this type of thing.

Just my 2 cents...
