Yeah, I know how you feel. I'm just going to ask if they could knock off a few bucks because of the wait, but the reality is I'd get the car regardless.

Can't hurt to ask.

I agree. I would just ask and use the wait time as the reasoning. I did not order my car. My dealer found it on the boat for me. I was quoted 2/6 and I am still going to ask for a small reduction. Never hurts to ask.

Mine too! What dealer are you buying from? Crevier? Mine is heading to Mckenna around where I used to live but I recently moved to OC.

Yessir. I hope to pick it at Crevier before the weekend! If that holds, opticoat on Saturday!

Btw: if you need parts, see Jesse. He has been great to work with. I have black grilles and black chrome exhaust tips awaiting my arrival.

My status also now says "Finishing Touches". However, under Selected Options and M Sport Line, it lists Adaptive M Suspension (right under M sport suspension). We did order M Sport, but not Adaptive M Suspension. Probably wishful thinking if they added this option for the long wait. Anybody else see the same thing?

Mine also says adaptive on the website. I highly doubt they installed it. Might be an Internet error. Would be nice though!

Where is a good place to get opticoat done in OC? Any special discounts or pricing? Are you doing the whole car? Bimmerpost won't let me send PM yet.

You should be able to send PM after a couple of posts. When you can, I'll send you the company I am using with details. A gentlemen down in Del Mar used him as well and raved about him. I am doing the entire car and rims.
