That's why I was easily able to claim it but it's been sitting at port since 12th. CA said I'll definitely get it sometime next week but with Monday being holiday his best guess is Wednesday.
Are you picking up your car this weekend? I would love to see some photos once you get a chance. I love my new 135i, it actually has exceeded my expectations and I have not even exceeded 3500rmp yet due to beak in period. I am sure you will love your 135is

Congrats man. I am happy for you and I think you made a good decision. Keep in mind that the exhaust will get louder and more aggressive sounding over the next 1000miles. I have noticed that my throttle response has got considerably better after a couple hundred miles as compared to new. My wife's 335i was the same way, the exhaust sound, throttle response, and gas mileage improved considerably after a couple thousand miles. My 135i exhaust sound has already improved after 300miles. Are you going to clear bra? I am having mine done Monday. Enjoy the exciting day, you got yourself an awesome car

She arrived at the dealership on 9/23 and I collected her on 9/25. She is everything I expected except for the exhaust tips - I expected regular chrome and they are back chrome. I can already see what a problem brake dust is going to be, so I bought a can of Meguiars wheel wax on the way home.
