I drove a 2000 540iT for six months and just happened to go by the dealership that serviced it to buy a extened warrantie when I saw a silver M3 on the showroom floor. Now about a week earlier I left a deposit check at another dealer on a white M3 that I ordered. I was told that my wait would be about 8 weeks, I was cool with that because it would have given me time to stack up some more chips for the down ( see the plan was to keep the 540 and supersize my rep with the M3)The dealership that I ordered from quoted me about 57k for a white, power package,smg,factory 19's and the HK stereo. Anyway I started talking to a good looking persian chic while waiting for the salesguy to write up my warrantie stuff, and happened to mention that I had ordered a M3 when she asked me waht I was driving. When I told her, her eyes got big and she told me she was a salesperson and asked if i would like to trade in my wagon. Before I could open my mouth she ofered me 30k for it and before I could respond to that she up'ed it to 32k. So I bit but the silver M3 was just sold so she took me to the back of the lot and gave me my choice of cardon black or jet black. I took the jet with the all the stuff I had orederd at the other dealership plus nav,xenon lights, back-up sensors, and the adj seat bks all for 60K runnin. I know some would say I got "bent-over and ran up in", but you see, I've got mine and a lot of others are still waiting.:bigpimp:
