Did you order or buy off the lot?

Per sdorn's suggestion, here's a poll for us.

Did you Order, Buy off the lot, or have a car located for you?

Off to lot. Dealer had the exact car I was looking for and I got a good deal out of it..I needed a car within 2 weeks and I really couldn't wait 1-2 months.

I think the third option is for dealers who found cars through other dealer's lots so it should be valid

Yeah, I knew some people would gripe that I didn't have their exact situation listed.

I leased the first and only one I test drove. I have a feeling I will special order my next one and ED it. I could see myself getting an M3 or maybe a 335 coupe when my lease is up.

European Delivery and Performance Center Delivery is the same thing as ordering your vehicle.

See! The third option is totally useless and only detrimental to your quest for numbers.

Whatever!
It's an AWESOME poll and the results will be statistically sound with a margin of error of less than one. I'm doing this to publish it in Newsweek next month, to which they will then quote it as The Bible and fact handed down from God himself.

definitely ordered!

i also tend to incline to those who say 2 & 3 options are virtually identical.

Well when i found mine, she was already on the ship. I purchased her about 3 days before she arrived at the port. So technically, i ordered.. had to wait about 2 weeks.
