bad experience...

As some of you may know I've been waiting for my car to arrive which was supposed to be here at the end of october. It hasn't been shipped cause of the port strike however i'm very disappointed in the service that i'm getting from my dealer. The news that I get from them is whenever I call them on what's happening, for example I found out about the strike on the forum and then I call the dealer which is when they tell me that my car is stuck in Halifax. I would at least expect them to call me to say that my car would be delayed in the shipment. During the strike I called and my CA's assistant checked up on my car because i wanted to know if the car would be shipped through another route and the assistant said that the car was shipped to Edmonton which was awesome. Now with the strike ending 2 weeks ago, my dealer calls me today after my dad called to check up on the update of the car because it should've been here from edmonton which approx. take a max of 1 week(called parkshore dealership to doublecheck) and thats when I found out that my car was NEVER in edmonton and its been in halifax ALL ALONG!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: Receiving updates on the car ONLY when I call and getting information that even isn't correct? This is probably the worst experience and I'm very very disappointed.

i feel you man, same thing happened to me cause of the strike. thnkgod for this forum or i would've never have known what the problem was as to why my car is so far a month and a half late.
you should give your dealer another call. i called mine and theyve assured me that i can go in on wednsday next week to pick it up. but ofcourse they assured me i could go in to pick it up first week of october...
nevertheless the poor sevice of never calling to tell me, nor explaining why my car was delayed. they def wont be getting any thankyous from me when i go to pick up my car. nor will i ever be going back

There are some things you can change and there are things you have no power over. Try to relax and spend your time thinking about other things... I know it's hard but the day it gets here will arrive faster if you're not obsessing about it. You know the saying, boiling water takes longer if you watch it.

wc19, the wait shouldn't be much longer. Chances are you car is already local... and possibly awaiting transport to the dealer.

A little more patience, it's almost over.

BTW, I'll be getting mine early next week. I'll be so relieved when I get the call to pick it up.

lol even though im a 328 and not a 335 like you big players, a e92 meet in vancouver is a awesome idea. I'd definitely be down for that.
btw, i got my 328, and there were a whole bunch of 335's and other 328's being/done prepping at brain jessel. call your dealer and see if your cars here yet!
