Hey all,

First time buying a new car, let alone ordering one, and I have a couple questions.

Just ordered a new 335i xdrive, and my CA dealer traded for a German build he states starts production on 11/19. I'm hoping to receive the car by new years, as I'm starting my first job. The CA seems to think the car could be here by mid-december and will definitely be here by new years. I'd venture to say I don't have much faith in him based on some hiccups in pricing and reluctance to get back to me in a timely manner... The BMWUSA website states that the order is still processing and tells me nothing more

Any ideas on a best/worst case timeline for this?

As a side note, I'm starting work at Ford R&D, so I suppose I could always buy a used Ford DD considering the 30 MI commute into Detroit...also don't want to get *&#$ from my coworkers for driving a better car
