Just because you don't have your car yet, doesn't mean you couldn't come out!

dclee1 - Dude, how'd you get an April 19th ED??? My dealer told me they "can't do ED because they won't have the program in place for another 6 months." They told me that when I put a deposit on mine, first week in March. I ordered my passport and everything!
Did my guy lie to me? WTF?

Great! The 1-er is going to be a great car to tune and mod! Our 335 is just awesome!

We'll give 1addicts members 10% their initial visit on all LABOR! Springs, exhaust, downpipes, and so on... We can't wait to get our car!

Yeah, they lied. Or at least your CA was misinformed, or he was referring to the fact that that specific dealer wasn't going to do it for 6 months. I called several places when I was shopping around in December, and many of them didn't want to do ED at all, or at least for the first few first few months after launch since the 1ers would come outta their allocation.

I'd confront your guy about it though...it may be too late if you're on order already but at least you know what kind of person you'd be dealing with in the future...

Outta curiousity, who's your dealer?

Well that's lame. I got it from Knauz in Lake Bluff. My car's already in the "awaiting transport" stage, so yeah - it's too late. I guess I'll just do ED on my next Bimmer.. the autobahn will have to wait a couple years before it gets a taste of my driving skillz.

Hmm, Knauz usually gets pretty good reviews as a dealer. I ended up getting mine at Fields in Northfield.

Hey, at the very least you'll be one of the few 1ers around chicagoland at the start of driving weather (finally...).
