Just realized

Just thinking now that I finally have my beast that not too many people can say that they have taken delivery of 2 2013 M5's......
Trying to find the silver lining

The silver lining is that BMW love you since they went all out to deliver your BMW before Dave, Krispy Kreme and I.

Almost happened to me, dealer said their backup plan for me and the frozen color debacle was to let me have the frozen until the non-frozen came in to then swap

I don't know how I feel about breaking in 2 cars correctly. It's a task in itself to have to try and not speed in this thing.... I can't rag out a new car even if it will not end up as mine

BarryB- seriously. BMW should more than bend backward to get your car delivery.

To have beast die barely 300 miles into european vacation, is ridiculous.

I am getting my car on thursday. Finally released today.

Still without explanation from BMW on what exactly happened to my car.

I am just worried when I pick up my car the paint chip will still be there.

Well lets get together Friday for a photo shoot.

BMW did what was reasonable under the circumstances to make it right. :-)

I'm definitely down. Would love to meet some other owners in the Bay Area once I get my car back from the shop. I'm typically free most weekends.

As for the 2 thing - one is my Dad's, but I actually purchased and took delivery of both. Does that count? :P
