...you should try waiting to pick it up when it's sitting there ready to go home.

Our new 330cic arrived at our dealership late Friday night. The dealer's prep group doesn't work on Saturday, so we couldn't pick it up that day. They promised to have it ready to go this afternoon (Monday).

However, my wife left on a business trip yesterday and won't be back until late Friday night, so we went down to the dealer on Saturday evening just to make sure the numbers all looked correct so that I could pick it up today alone (visions of the car have clouded my mind to the point where $700 a month looks about the same as $7000 a month, so my wife wants to verify everything herself). Everything seemed fine, so we left there Saturday night with me knowing I only had 48 hours to go. We contacted our insurance company yesterday and had them start coverage today.

Well, my salesman just called and said we have a little problem. Since the financing paperwork went through BMWFS with both of our names on it, they need both our signatures before I can pick up the vehicle. They could simply re-run the credit info in just my name, but the rates changed the first of May and we were locked in at the older (better) rates. Of course he should have realized this Saturday, but I also should have very specifically asked "so you don't need her signature for me to take the car home???"

So now I have to wait 5 more days to pick up the new wheels, even though it's sitting there ready to go this afternoon. Keeping focused on work this morning was bad enough, now I've got 4.5 more days to wait.:bawling: :bawling:

Any suggestions on what to do to pass the time? I can only read the owners' manual so many times.... :cry:

That's rough, man. My car rolled off the truck at 3pm on a Thursday and I told my salesman I would be in at 5pm to pick it up so it better be ready.

It was. :thumb:

I was in the same situation as you since both my wife and I had our names on the paperwork. My wife wouldn't be available until the following Monday and I told my salesman that, after waiting 2+ months already, there was no way I was waiting another 4 days. He sympathized and mobilized the troops for the final inspection. I got to the dealership right at 5 and the car was waiting out front, ready to go. They earned my repeat business with that one.

I can't give you any suggestions on how to dull the pain while you pass the time, but I would suggest you go write down the current mileage on you car, then inform any salesman within earshot that if ANYONE test drives your car there will be hell to pay!

I pay particular attention to this because while I was shopping for mine one of the other dealerships let me test drive a car that they were "waiting for the final paperwork to be completed" on. I thought to myself, "good God, I'd be pissed if I was the future owner of this car".

Of course, I drove it anyway. ;)

I was careful though. I didn't violate the break-in rules or anything.... but most drivers wouldn't be so thoughtful.

thanks for the suggestions...

This actually crossed my mind this evening - I may shoot over there tomorrow and take a look. I'm not sure whether to worry about someone else test driving, or the fact that it will probably sit out in the sun and rain this week in the back of their lot. I wanted it to sit in the sun and rain in my parking lot.... :rolleyes:

IMO, holy shit that's a lot.
Hmmm, I guess you and my wife would agree on this subject.

I'm not sure how one would go about getting a lower monthly on a $48K car though....:dunno:
