Car Wait Stories...

Hi all, new to the forum but have been reading a lot for a while. I've been waiting for my 335Xi liquid blue to be shipped from another dealer for a while... this is after weeks of waiting to pull the trigger on the car. ( I know, my own fault)

Yesterday my wife and I scheduled c-section of our second set of twins for next wednesday and then about an hour later I get the call form the CA... "hey your car will be ready next wednesday..."

Anyone else who felt like the Gods are against them at pick up time?

My car arrived when I was on an unplanned last minute business trip for several weeks. And then my flight home landed after the dealership was closed. That was a painful wait.

My car arrived in a record 2 weeks from when it started production. I was out of town on a family vacation. I got to drool over the pics my CA texted me until I picked it up a week later.

I like Estoril, but I'd go with Imola rather than Mojave.
