Hey Potatoe what dealer are you #1 at? I am at Sonnen in San Rafael.

Yo TheoIam, my deposit is at Concord BMW.

Did Sonnen promise you MSRP?


Thanks all for confirming how orders work. I'm surprised, actually. In @ '97 Mercedes told me "you can get anything you want, but most changes affect the schedule. The factory only builds one color at a time." And, Lexus simply said "we don't do special orders."

Probably, MBZ and Lexus have improved since then, but this BMW approach is perfection, it seems to me. The salesman says they even have an online database with daily updates so that it's possible to watch as the car is built and shipped. I know I'll enjoy that.
