Thumbs up Ordered my 2006 330xi today!

Hello all, I've only posted once before on this forum but I've been lurking and reading alot of the posts for the better part of a year now. Anyway, I've been procrastinating changing one of my cars for a while as I wanted to see how the new 2007 Infiniti G35 would come out, but from an overall style point of view, it's just not my thing based on all the photos and preview articles I've come across. So this morning I finally went to BMW and ordered a 2006 330xi I brought a print-out with all the specs I wanted as well as certain posts that I printed from here to show what kind of discounts people are getting. To my dismay though I was told that the factory stopped production last week so I'd have to find an existing car or wait for the '07 model. To keep a long story short, after 45 minutes of searching, one of the sales managers came across the EXACT car I wanted but with the status as "Sold", so he double-checked and found out that somebody ordered it and bailed out on the lease. I immediately had them put a hold on it while I finalized my trade-in, etc... and now I'm expecting to take delivery next Wednesday or Thursday! The specs are as follows:

2006 330xi
Alpine White on Lemon Dakota Leather with Burl Walnut Wood Trim
Sport Package (Sport steering wheel, 17" style 158 wheels, sport seats)
Premium Package (Logic7, auto dimming & folding mirrors, lumbar support, etc...)
Navigation Package
6-speed Auto
Comfort Access
Park Distance Control
Bluetooth Telephone & BMW Assist
6-disc CD Changer
Electric Rear & Manual Side Sunshades

I'm still in total shock that somebody would order such a specific configuration and colours, then walk away from it. The car is presently sitting at BMW's facility in Halifax so they said I should be able to take delivery by Thursday the latest, at which point I will promptly take lots of pics if it's not too dark out yet and post some of them here
