i don't think so, bro. i'm expecting mine no later than 10 days from today, 14 at worst, not 21 days.
let's make it interesting if you don't agree, bro.

Talking Triton Leader - Position 11-6-2012

The TL is just passing Oceanside CA with the next stop Port Hueneme. My new beauty is very close - even got a call from my CA that her new rims are being powder coated with gloss black as I write!

How did you manage the paint (powder) job on the rims, did you buy a second set?

Hah, wow, so it *did* stop at Long Beach. That's where my car is getting unloaded... and this means that the extra trip up to Port Hueneme put my car at a 1 day delay, so far.

Oh well.

No worries. I still appreciate the excitement.

Now to clear customs and get on a truck heading north... The wait can be agonizing.

Talking 550i GT - Complete and at Dealer

Hey guys, nice tracking our deliveries with you all, I hope your cars arrive quickly and in beautiful shape. Here's the final update from a new GT owner, I will post photos and would love to see the same from this group.

Well, the long voyage and the wait have nearly come to an end, my car is at the dealer receiving the final preparation steps now necessary to complete delivery. I am having his windows tinted, the wheels installed and afterwards the detail.

Interesting though, I think they had some difficulty firing up all the systems on the car as the vehicle electronic system is put in "transport mode" when being shipped. Upon receipt of the car, the Team at the dealer ran into difficulties doing so and had to obtain some sort of update for the software - hopefully this is not a bad omen, but instead just means that the "James Bond" options I had installed require attention, just kiddin, no ejection seat or weapons have been installed.

I will post pictures of the new addition this week as I expect to see delivery on or before Wednesday. I think I will put custom plates on the car, something to the effect of "Charley Bucket". For those of you who are fans of Willy Wonka, you may recall that Willy greets Charley and states simply "...And you. Well, you're just luck to be here, aren't you?" that's me.....

Talking 550i GT delivered!

It's been a long journey, but very enjoyable. I picked her up last night (has to be a her as she is so damn sexy). The delivery took a bit longer than I expected, but I ended up having the dealer install a converter (to power a PC) and just to be sure I'm covered, I had them load a 4g hotspot in the her too.

Drove her into work today and WHAT A JOY! She is very quick, a little more bulky than my 850i or our 528i, but that's to be expected with the room and luxury she provides. That said, a combination of the luxury and downright get up and go she has clearly places her in a class to be admired.

I recognize we are on a M5 forum, but I thought I would share a few photos with the hopes that you folks would do the same. Great tracking our deliveries together and I wish you all Godspeed.
