Going to take delivery on 28i today!

The weather here in the Washington DC area is pretty miserable today, but my day was made brighter when I received a call letting me know that my 28i was at the dealership and being prepped for delivery! I will be out there late this afternoon to pick it up!

Not the street machine that a lot of you posters have or are purchasing, and a little stripped down in comparison to others (28i, Premium Package, heated front seats, satellite radio, Xenon headights, BMW Assist/Bluetooth/USB), but it will more than suit my needs. Vermillion Red Metallic/Oyster Leather/Fineline Wave wood trim.

Congrats SoxFan! My X3 is now in the "Finishing Touches" stage! It just got updated today. How long was yours at that stage before it went to your dealer?

Amazingly enough, the website it is still showing the "Finishing Touches" stage, even though I have already put about 30 miles on it since closing the deal early this evening. Apparently, it is not quite as accurate or precise as UPS or FedEx package tracking.

The BMWNA website put it into "Finishing Touches" sometime on Thursday, and my sales rep called me this morning to report that it had come in on a truck early this morning. I am in the Virginia suburbs of DC, so the transport time from Spartanburg to here is on the order of an overnight trip. So, for me,, the time between "Finishing Touches" on the website and delivery to me was 48 hours plus or minus. Thank god I got my financing in order this past week!

I did not discern any rush preparation at the dealer, although I am sure that they wanted to get the car delivered by the end of the month. The car seemed ready to go. Maybe I will find some evidence of a rushed delivery, but so far I am very pleased with the process, and the first 30 miles have been fun!
