Both of our cars were damaged somehow during shipment. My front bumper was damaged and Krispy's rear bumper was damaged. Hmmm... BMW won't say though. Latest word is that mine will hopefully be released from the VDC on Monday and Krispy's will be released on Tuesday after both of our damages are repaired.

But yeah thanks for the petition though. They technically owe us our cars by next Friday or they will be in breach of contract. And don't worry gents I already have my lawyer on speed dial. I will post an update here when I hear something tomorrow.

But yeah, today is day 185 since I actually put in my order for the car. Just wish I had gotten to enjoy this weekend with it as I have been given a 4 day weekend from the military.

On the upside, I just saw the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. It's pretty awesome! Hope you guys get to catch it this week.
Dave,

I'm glad you're finally getting your car, but for the others -- if you hire a lawyer to sue for breach of contract for not delivering your car "on time" be sure to show the lawyer the clause in your contract (the actual contract, not marketing materials, not catalogues, not anything that isn't actually written in or SPECIFICALLY listed in the document both you and the dealer signed) that said your car would be delivered by a SPECIFIC date. Words like "estimated," "normally," "typically," etc. don't create a contractual obligation. If your dealer separately signed a binding document to deliver the car by a specific date that would be between you and the dealer; the dealer can't commit BMW to a specific date.

Furthermore, you can't buy a car from BMW, BMW sells only to dealers. You buy the car from the dealer, not BMW. Because of that I would surprised to see a dealer give you a contractually enforceable delivery date. BMW will give the dealer an estimated delivery date but that doesn't create a contractual obligation you can enforce in court.

But given that 'shit happens' (my car has been at the VPC since Oct 28th) my advice is to try to work it out as best you can. Believe me, BMW has no vested interest is 'screwing anyone over.' But stamping your feet and screaming or threatening to sue isn't likely to get the best results you seek.

Thanks for the heads-up. I had not heard about this problem at Short Hills Mall, good to know.

The new BMWs dont actually have a cylinder keyhole anymore though do they? I dont think you can pop off the lock cylinder anymore. With my M3, when they popped out the lock, you could literally stick your pinky in the cylinder, turn, and it would unlock and disable to alarm as if there was a key.

I eventually replaced it with a capped cylinder so there was no key access.

Yea, dont park inside garages in NJ malls. Park near bus stops (Garden St Plaza) or outdoor lots with high traffic.

They also tried stealing my wheels at GSP inside the garage.

Here's the ad I posted in the newspaper.

Lost: 2013 F10 M5
Last Seen: LOGINOUT. Munich, Germany
Date Last Seen: Sept 7th 2012.
Reward: $10,000.

Hello, I lost my beloved M5. She has a black collar on her and inscribed on the inside is the name Mika. She likes to wag her tail when you turn her DSC off. She gets excited when you say the word Nurburgring around her and likes it when you give her 100 Octane to drink. She's a good girl, and I just want her back in my arms. I hope that I get her back soon.

Nope, my M5 just got to the dealer today in Santa Barbara! Woot Woot!

Hopefully will be picking up tomorrow!



I also had a long talk with my rep from BMW Customer Relations today. They are going to offer me compensation. I told them that a car payment or two would suffice. I didn't want to be offered ///M School, but they said they may have already mailed me a voucher. So we'll see.

I just want to know extent of the damage to the car.

It would be ironic when i picked up my car on thursday, the chip is still there.

Gentlemen, after waiting 188 days, the wait is FINAAAALLY OVER!!!!

OMG!!! Words simply cannot express!!!

As always Jon at BMW Santa Barbara was amazing!

Mika is exactly the way I left her. I had to drive her all the way back down to San Diego today, and it was an epic drive. I took Highway 1 on the Malibu Coast on the way down. I tried to get a couple of shots just as the sun was setting, I did the best that I could. SO HAPPY this is all over, now my life can live my ///M Lifestyle again! WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!

Finally over.

I am thinking i should drive down just to apologize to your car.

Haha. BMW still have not told me if my car was the one that bumped into you.

I was buried at work last two days and was not able to get the call from BMW.
