A Moment of Whining

Hello, all -

I posted about a month ago, telling you all about the new 330i I had just ordered. I've been reading this forum ever since, absorbing all the comments about the new E90. Turns out I'm probably going to be more of a lurker than a poster, but that is another story. The point of this post is:


I have gone through all the posts in this forum (185 pages worth, at this point). I have read all the magazine reviews posted here (some more than once). I have read all the E90-related posts on bimmerfest and have even tried to find information scattered amongst the roadfly pages. I have looked at all the pictures posted here, read all the electronic details, downloaded/looked at most of the available videos. I have even read the ordering/shipping forum for details. Truthfully, the only specific topic/forum here I have not looked at is the one about the engine, because it would be all Greek to me. In short, I am obsessed.

My car is in the country. It has been here since 13 February, but I don't get it until 22 February. I have finished all the required paperwork, now I just have to wait for the dealership to schedule/finish the customs paperwork, registration and the UK light conversion (have to do that with an American spec. car).

Meanwhile, I drive a Rent-A-Wreck that is much … different (was going to say inferior, but that would be rude ) than my [now sold] Z4. Selling the Z4 so quickly is the only positive in this post, but…

In addition, the folk at work are sick and tired of my "when I get my car" and "ooooh, that one looks like mine except I have a different color/trim/wheel/etc." I think they are considering shooting me…

I can't take it anymore - I am going to snap! I want my car! I don't want to read any more stories of people telling how marvelous their car drives, looks, responds or how the electronics/ergonomics are wonderful. I want to brag on that myself!!

I want my car!


Okay, that's the end of the self-absorbed whine. You may now return to your regular programming…

I think 95% of people on this forum felt or feels the exact same way you do. I just kept telling myself over and over.. the day will come, it has to.. time will keep going. Eventually i will be driving her home from the dealer. Its a bitch to wait, but it will be worth it. Good things will come to those who wait... -however i would have no idea what that means, cause i lack that virtue

marilyn - have you started dreaming of her yet? I used to wake up sweating thinking that my car had been stolen (when it was still being assembled). 3 days will fly by... post pics when she arrives!

All I an say is...been there done that. I finally got my 330 Wednesday evening. It was SOOOO worth the wait. When that baby was unveiled on the showroom, I felt like a virgin on prom night. I had goosebumps and everything. And, oh by the way, patience is over-rated. Hang tough!

You guys are better than me. I would never have considered ordering a car. I would have driven all over the Southeast until I found a car I liked sitting on a lot. Thankfully I loved the one at my local dealership. In fact it was the only one I even looked at.

She's waiting

The wait is agonizing....

For me (a first time BMW owner), I have finally realized that it wasn't just the 1 1/2 months, really.....I had been waiting all my life for a car like this. This is far and away the coolest thing I have ever owned. On my first day to work, I wanted to skip the exit and drive to New Jersey.

I amin the exact same position as you.In fact, it kind of worries me that you say your car has been in the country since the 13th and that you will get it on the 22nd. My car has been in the country since the 6th and I haven´t got a date yet :-( Well, it was march 5th, but I am pretty sure I will get it sooner. The only thing I´m worried about is that expactations are "just a tad" high...what if I´m like "this is it?!"
