New F30 on Island

As of Wednesday evening the MV Mokihana is in port at Sand Island with my car. Waiting for Matsonto release to the dealer. I am hoping they do tomorrow.

No news yet b/c it is still 0730 on Friday ;-)

328i
Jet Black w/ Sport Line
Black Leather w/ Red Highlights
Cold Weather Package (Yes I know, we are in Hawaii, but I am headed to the east coast at some point)
Parking Package
Premium Package
Adaptive M Suspension
Sport Paddle Shifters
35% ceramic tint from BMW Hawaii

- Going to Ron's Auto this morning to grab a license plate inspection sticker mount
- I got the Simoniz Ceramic paint sealer on Ebay for $20, and will be applying it immediately when I get home
- Going to take care of it with Zanio products

Svache, any chance I could trade you a six pack(s) of Longboard for some coding help?

Im sure Svache will take care of you on coding. Cool guy.

No need to explain on Cold Weather Package - Svache has it too. :-). No Xenons? It will be nice to see a black F30. Never seen one in person. Hope you get it this weekend.

Haha no kidding, the cold weather package is one of the best packages I have.. I LOVE my heated seats

One thing I seriously disliked was the automated headlight washers.. it's set to wash the headlights at a certain interval of regular screen washes (you can't do this manually), and when driving this will spray your whole car because of the wind.. plus, needless to say, it empties the water reservoir pretty fast.. Thankfully it can be altered in the code, I simply disabled it lol

Haha no worries, I don't drink anymore (well for now at least, sadly.. stupid stomach) but I'll help you out, no problem

One thing though, just so you know, I hope I will be able to get a newer dataset of the software because it seems that some of the current builds are not able to get all the stuff done (such as the corner light delete, or the headlight washers). So when I code your car, it's possible I am unable to do some part of the things that you may want because of this (unless someone leaks the newer version)

LOL... whoever buys your car from you is going to read through the owner's manual and think, "WTF?!? The car doesn't work like this at ALL!"

I know, I changed so many little things now haha.

I think if I ever sell my car, I think I'd best just put my original backups back into the car so it's as if nothing ever happened (or I could offer a free coding session on the car as sales pitch haha)

The coding session would totally be a selling point!

I went with the Adaptive M Suspension instead of the Xenons.

Looking to do at least 3 coats of Zaino to start.

I stopped down at BMW earlier this afternoon and no luck yet. They said that Matson has no more than 4 days to release the car. Today was day three according to the manifest they pulled up. So if they were able to get it tonight maybe Sunday...

The suspense must be killing you lol...

I'm already going crazy and I have to wait till September. Can't wait to see your car with the zaino on it. Should be shiny.

I hear ya. Just wait until it starts production, it goes to paint, then sits waiting for transport....

I almost wish I didn't have so many details, then I wouldn't be anticipating it so much.

I experienced that last wait from Matson to the dealer as the worst wait of all.. My car arrived on April 4 (Wednesday) in Honolulu with the same ship, Matson would not release the car until April 9 the earliest, which indeed happened. I finally would take delivery on Tuesday, a day after it got at the dealership. I'm kind of thinking it might be similar in your situation

So my CA obviously has no clue what is going on. My car was never on the Mokihana. It was loaded on the Manukai on 27 June and is arriving today 1 July.

I am annoyed that he has been telling me that it was on the Mokihana and also that they were trying to pick it up.

I got the real scoop from Jim, one of the managers. At this stage with the holiday, I am not holding my breath and expect Friday/Saturday to drive out of the lot.

My survey is going to reflect.

A little more patience buddy! It will be so worth it once delivery comes. My car took a month from Cali to Oahu.

Who is your CA? I remember mine was always up-to-date and gave me print screens of what he could see in his system so I knew exactly what he knew

My ca is Howard. He is a nice dude but...

I figure I shouldn't be upset about it too much, then I think oh wait I am dropping 45k on this car, do I get to be :-)

Honestly, I am enjoying riding my bike everywhere and not paying for gas right now!

lol at least the weather isn't too bad over here

But I agree, when you spend a lot of money on your car, you should receive some service in return as well
