M3 Adjuster (one of the "Original 12" - "The Lucky Dozen" - http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=458238) reported about this finding when he took delivery of his 1M (ED):
http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10397037
"To date [Sept 11, 2011]... I am the only one of the original 12 that has opted for the car, a fact that is a bit disappointing, but not surprising, given the fact that the pre-drive 12 are all normal people, and to be honest, although we all LOVED the 1M when we drove it [November 2010], none of us are independently wealthy, and while we all instantly wanted to own a 1M... we all also realized that there may be challenges in selling our current cars and making such a big investment.
Since I wasn't smart enough to listen to my own advice and plunk money down on a deposit right away... I entered the fray to purchase a 1M in May [2011]... and through assistance from Papethova (who is currently on his own ED experience) I secured an allocation, although not without a lot of heartache and concern. Finally my allocation came through in July and my ED date was determined as 09/01/11 and I set about making plans for the trip."

Agree with all of the above, maybe it was because i had the money in my pocket and did not win the trip Either way the original 12 sure had the trip of a lifetime and who knows maybe some of us will be lucky next time

Entertaining reading the contest winners individuals posts concerning their group experience.

I never signed up for it because I was sure I probably wouldn't win, and if I had I knew I would want the car something bad and the timing for that just wasn't right.

So now more than 2 years later here I am with this special car anyway, kicking myself that I didn't enter the contest.

If nothing else those jackets the winners got are boss.

Are they available on-line anywhere, or were they just for the contest winners and M elite employees?

The jackets and vests we received are awesome, and the memories are ones i will treasure for ever along with my euro delivery experience. I haven't seem them elsewhere. It looks like they were custom made for the event for the 12 and the group of engineers and photographers that were there.



As far as entering the contest, one of the 12 encouraged his flat mate to enter and that person didn't enter, and of course he was extremely disappointed with himself.

I was very close to getting one myself. The problem was that my allocation came up late in the year and I was also under contract on a house. It's never a good idea to take out other loans and affect your credit score before the deal on the house is done and the paperwork is all signed. Ultimately, the house had to win out, though I do sometimes regret net getting the 1M. I suppose I could of bought the car and waited on the house, but the home prices in my area have recovered a bit so I would have ended up paying more on a house had I waited. On the plus side, my 135 has been paid off for a while now and it is so nice not having a car payment.
