LAST MINUTE QUESTION

I AM GOING TO GET MY CAR ON SATURDAY. THERE IS 2 CARS AT THE DEALERSHIP THAT I AM LOOKING AT. ONE IS DARK GREEN W/ BEIGE LEATHER. THE OTHER IS TITANIUM SILVER W/ BEIGE LEATHER. IF I TOOK ONE OF THEM FROM THE LOT IT WOULD BE ONE OF THESE TWO. I LIKE THE JET BLACK OR THE ARTIC WHITE, SO THE DEALER SAID INSTEAD OF ORDERING IT AND WAITING 12 WEEKS OR SO, HE CAN GET IT FROM CALIFORNIA AND IT WOULD ONLY TAKE 3 DAYS. SO I GUESS MY QUESTION IS DO I ORDER ONE FROM CALI. OR PERHAPS I CAN MAKE A BETTER DEAL FROM THE ONE THATS BEEN SITTING ON THE LOT. WHICH COLOR COMBO'S DO YOU GUYS PREFER.

I LOVE my jet black, but it's what I have, so it's personal opinion....I had an AW e46 before this, I love black or white.

The color is up to you but the titanium is hot, the green looks better on a 5 series in my opinion

Apples and oranges, and erroneous info.

You may very well be able to get "a better deal" on something the dealer has in stock, but what's the use of saving a a couple of bucks if it's not the car you want?

Ordering a car from BMW does NOT take 12 weeks. I ordered my car on 2/23 to my exact specs. The car is on the water as we speak and I am anticipating delivery first week in April.

dark green is also more "classy" looking, especially with beige leather. look at the deep green color thread , i think the color looks gorgeous.

Agreed. I would be willing to wait (and did wait) however long it takes to get the exact car I want. However, some people are not patient and want instant gratification so they are willing to sacrifice the options they truly want for the ability to drive off the lot without waiting 8-12 weeks for delivery.

The OP is in LV so he is a West coast delivery which takes about 12 weeks.

If you're not leasing, I'd go with the TiAG silver / beige...easier to sell down the road. Are you sure you won't consider ordering the car? Part of the fun is the wait

What about Performance Ctr Delivery in SC...you'd take delivery sooner 5-6 weeks (from order to final VPC) and LV is only 32 hr drive back .

I'd wait... what's a few days when you'll have the car for years?

Get the car that you want, otherwise you'll always be wondering if you did the right thing.
