I'm only on week 1, so any advice from the veterans would be appreciated!
Week 1 & 2:
A) Read manual front and back. (see thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17829
B) Start tracking your vehicle. http://oc.bmwusa.com
or 1-800-831-1117 (vehicle prod. # or VIN # needed)
Week 2 & 4:
Week 5: Engine/Drivetrain/Exhaust Mods
Look into the forums to see what you may want to add to your car, start ordering to avoid rush delivery charges, etc.
A) Exterior Mods:
i.e. look into tinting, %, pricing and local tinting.
(see thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3093
B) Confirm insurance and adding the car to your policy
Week 1: Butterflies from the order
Week 2: Post Whore on e90. Kicking myself
Week 3: Trying to convince myself that I can be distracted from thinking about the order & car arrival. Punching myself
Week 4: Stabbing myself
Week 5: Can barely deal with the excruciating pain that is waiting for your BMW
Week 6: Take delivery. The world can continue, I get back to work, Post whore on e90, my friends and family start to wonder if I am missing since I am out driving
