Been there, done that, but with my Alpine White E90 Msport, also manual. We picked ours up at the end of our European trip in May 2011 and only got to spend about 24 hours with it. I had my wife and daughter with me, so I didn't want to make the trip all about the car.
Our wait time after dropping it off at the Munich airport until the car showed up at Global Imports in Atlanta was only about a month, so you might luck out. Great looking combo and I know you'll love the low-end torque.
