It's the same as any other car purchase except that you don't drive the car off the lot that day.
I guess that was what I was getting at - timing. So ok, you turn in the car one week prior. Not really a big issue for me as I could borrow a car from the in-laws for like 6 weeks awaiting re-delivery. Thanks guys, deposit going down very soon!
Funny, my in-laws have a '89 5 series - should be nice getting used to that then moving into an F10 M5.
