Sorry to those shopping at BMW of Fremont

So i've had my car on order for a good 4 months now. It's been at the dealer and ready to pick up since this Wednesday. I just sold my car yesterday, but due to a checking issue, i'm unable to take delivery of the car this week. And this will be prolong by the fact that I'm taking a week long trip to NYC.

Because of this non-activity, I've gotten multiple pressure calls from my sales person and even the general manager due to a lot of public interest in my car. But I explained the situation to the dealer and they have agreed to hold the car for me until my return next Sunday. I just wanted to say sorry for the people that were interested in my car. And believe me when i say, there would be nothing else I would want more than to take the temptation away from your view .

My car at Fremont:
SGM 135i
-Sport package


P.S: I've told them to not let anyone test drive my car, are they keeping their promise?

It's your car....It should have a nice big red SOLD sign in the window. And no one should drive it anywhere except to the detail shop right before you pick it up. Anymore than 3 miles on your car and it has been taken out by someone.
and no one should be allowed in you car even to smell it.

I've worked at a dealer before. And I've seen cars with 10 - 15 miles on the odo off the truck. That's why I wasn't too worried when my dealer said there was 10 mi on the clock. My salesman said he was the only one that drove it, to the detailer. There's nothing i can do really, so I'm not gonna worry too much about it. I just don't to see anymore than 15.

Absolutely. Last weekend, I was at my dealer looking at the new M3, despite the fact the car was sold, my SA invited me to sit in the car, I refused as it wasn't my car and I wouldn't want anyone sitting in my car either. What's so difficult to understand. If it isn't your's, keep yer' shitehooks off the thing. Cranky?
