Yo! MORE MANTIS CAR DRAMA

20k+ posts, let's see if you guys know me well enough

I went to dealer to order a car. I said hook me up with a M3, he said first batch was totaled in the vessel that tipped, and if i want a good deal i gotta wait 6 months to get a good deal. He said he could get me a M3 E90 (sedan) at MSRP. i'd take that, or even if 2k over MSRP.

So that's option 1. Option 2 was a Space Gray 6MT 335i E92 with all options that i want ready at another dealer. he said i can have it today or tomorrow with 2k off MSRP

Option 3 is a AW 335 same options i want, 6mt, e92... etc. will be at his dealership in 3 weeks.

Option 4 is that i order my montego blue 6mt e92 335i with all those options and wait 8 weeks for it.

Now guess what my decision was
