February 5 would make March 1.

1 week to get on a boat. 1 week on the water. 1 week prep/transport.

All are approximates, but ballpark. Decent ballpark.

I'm looking at your signature. Does your car have automatic transmission? Because if it does, I'm fairly confident you can be in your car by this Saturday, Monday at the latest.

What? How??

My car has Sports Automatic Transmission with paddle shifters which I can go without. I just got them cuz they looked cool..

You know a local dealer that has the same exact set up as my signature?

I don't know specifically, but I bet if you emailed a 50 mile radius of BMW dealers you'd find the exact car or something damn close.

Understand that every day cars that were ordered arrive at dealerships and buyers who were very eager two months earlier back out at the last minute. So it very well may be that someone else wanted a 328i M-Sport with the same options you have and its sitting on some dealers lot waiting for you to come and take it. And if you can't find the identical car, you will find something very close and then it will be up to you. Wait almost two months to get your car or take one this weekend minus a feature for less money.

BJ

oh I see. Thanks for the suggestion. I will email every dealer within 50 mile radius right now to find out. I think there are 5 dealers within that range but one I'm already done with.. Another most likely won't give good price. They said 1100 over invoice on a 3 series was an "extremely aggressive" deal that they can neither beat nor match.

I searched on the forums before for a good dealership around Houston and it seems there is none. All of them have bad reviews. But doesn't hurt to try.

Then do the entire state of Texas. Arkansas and Louisiana too. Something you can do in a day by car or plane, pick it up, and drive it back home. Email them the truth, give them what your paying, tell them you already have an order, tell them your inpatient and would rather buy the car closer to home. All true, all very honorable. Bad reviews don't matter unless you're talking about the service department. The sales department is all about volume. You already have a deal in place, somewhere in your geography someone will match it, trust me.

Lets save some time, get you in a car by Monday.

When two of them respond "We have your car but without the paddles, we'll sell it to you for $800 less than the one you ordered, you can pick it up on Saturday" what are you going to tell them?

Congrats.

It is customary upon completion to go to your BMW dealer and start shopping the accessories counter.

I would say yes! I'll be there on Saturday.
So far, I've gotten two responses back but both said they don't have one or a similar one in their lot right now.. hmm..

Also, I was approved by BMWFS to lease a vehicle from that particular dealership I'm working with. When I chose to move to another dealership, do I have to reapply for credit?

Thanks.

Thanks BJ,
It looks like you posted two of the same links though.
The car has M sport package, premium package, and Tech package but is missing some of the options that are must haves for me. For one, not having xenons is a deal breaker. I remember going to three local dealership and wondering why almost none of them have xenons... Is this common for all dealerships? I also really wanted dynamic handling and driver assistance package.

Thanks for searching the cars for me but I don't think waiting 7 weeks for a vehicle with the exact options that I wanted is too bad.

Also I prefer not to have to drive to an out of state dealership and drive back long distance on a new car. I personally have never driven long distance before but I have a friend who drove from LA to Houston straight for 25 hours last year. He took five 5 hour energy drinks and took one every five hours. When he got back though, his car was all messed up and he had to take it to the mechanic.

wow another dealer just responded and said, " I would love to assist you however there are only 6 cars in the country with the options and equipment plus some that meet your criteria. From CA to VA and it would cost approx. $750-1000 to transport these vehicles cross country."

Well, start negotiating and buy a one-way plane ticket.

If the exact car I wanted was in Chicago and it would save me 7 weeks of delivery time, I'd make a nice long weekend out of it, call it an adventure, enjoy the hell out of the car on the ride back home.

Cool. BMWUSA.COM is updated now and looks great. I'm getting the VIR report from the dealer now. I am eager to see if I get the M Steering wheel or not.

I am not sure yet. My e90 went to NJ. But I'm in PA. So I am right smack in the middle...I guess it could go either way.

What is PCD? I probably should know this since I spend so much time on the 'fest....

But honestly, I don't know what that means.

That's not the good VIN decoding site.

When I bought the E93 I could not find a dealer in the New York area that could get me one in less than 16 weeks due to the fact that they had all sold out their allocations for the next few months. It was late April and the earliest they could get me a car was mid September. I ordered from Braman Motorcars in Palm Beach Florida and had the car by the end of June. Flew down to pick it up, stayed at our place in Florida for a month and then had the car shipped to NYC. and flew back to NYC.

Cool. I'd do the same thing if I were in that position as I'm just crazy impatient and couldn't bear waiting 3-4 months for my car.

The one thing I've never done that I'm going to do for my next car is the Euro Delivery Program. It looks like so much fun, going to get away just the wife and I and have a long weekend over there in September 2015.

Thanks for your help. More dealers reponded to me today but none of them sound promising. Some just said we have a big inventory, come check it out. What time can u come today. Some said we have a similar car but cant sell it to u for that price. None of them said something along the lines of we have the exact car u want minus one small thing. We'll sell u for x amount less.

I think im like krash. I got a good deal with the right dealer and special ordered the exact car i want. I dont have an old lease running out or anything so no immediate need for the new car this weekend. I'm ok with the wait. Thanks a lot for your help though. I learned a lot in this thread that i can do better the next time i order.

Our previous car had been in an accident so while we were waiting we did not have a car. That is not a huge problem for us living in Manhattan but we were paying almost $500/month for an (empty) parking spot. In retrospect I am sorry we did not do European Delivery. The 750 was dealer stock so there was no waiting period at all and ED was not an option.

Took the E93 out last Sunday. It hadn't been driven since the Fall Foliage Run last October. The garage attendant attached a battery tender to it every two weeks. It started right up. I paid a lot of attention to the steering and still do not find it to be heavy. Neither did my wife, and this was after 6 weeks and 2500 miles in a C Class Mercedes that we had rented in Florida.
