My F30 328i M-Sport Build

I put down my deposit yesterday at BMW Peabody with my CA Jamie McCoy on a 2013 328i M-Sport. Originally, I had been promised a November build to be delivered in December. However, it turns out there are no South African build slots remaining for a RWD M-Sport vehicle for any US dealers, so I was pushed to a December build with January delivery. The majority of my dealer's builds are SA builds these days so there's not much I can do about it. Thankfully, my dealer is willing to honor the $1,000 Holiday credit and $750 loyalty credit, regardless of when I take delivery. Anyway, below are the specifics of my build:

328i RWD
M Sport Line
Alpine White
Black Leatherette
Aluminum Hexagon Trim w/ Black Highlight
Lighting Package
Sport Automatic Transmission w/ Paddle Shifters
Heated Seats
Sirius Satellite Radio

Total MSRP: $44,680
Purchase Price: $42,400
Trade Value: $19,000
Down Payment: $2,000
BMW CCA Credit: $500
5-year note @ 3.29% APR

All in all, I'm very happy with the deal that I got. My monthly payments are where I want them to be, I got more than I expected for my trade and my CA made a little coin as well. Win-win as far as I'm concerned. Now begins the very long 2.5 month wait until my car arrives. Less than ideal to receive a RWD car in January but, what can you do! Anyway, I'll be sure to keep this thread updated with the progress of my build! If anyone has any insight on tracking a car from South Africa, let me know!
