They actually had the almost exact car I wanted ont eh lot in stick too, but it didnt have premium package or else I would have a Jet black, on black 330ci. :yikes:Matthew78 said:i'm ordering it via Euro Delivery.
ordering seems to be the ONLY way to even get a manual transmission in these so-called 'ultimate driving machines' these days.
:dunno: That makes no sense. Let's see, with BMW's you order, pay full boat since the dealer doesn't have the car, and you get to wait a minimum of 6 weeks to get it?mc said:so long as I'm in the fortunate position to do so, I will always order my car(s). Even if they have exactly what I'm looking for on the lot, there's really something about the experience of piecing together your own automobile and the anticipation of the arrival:thumbup:
yeah, i agree that if the dealer has to trade for a car, they will be less likely to discount, but with orders it really makes no difference. if anything, it should be beneficial for them, since they don't have to allocate storage space for the car cuz as soon as it comes in, it's sold.Jano said:

I ordered my last car ONLY because the 330 wasn't out yet. The wait was horrible and the dealer cut me very little slack on a new model. I would never comprimise on a car that cost 40k, but if they had exactly what I wanted on the lot, I negotiate like crazy and use the difference for mods! A dealer will almost never do as good on a car they have to order or trade for.
boy ain't that the truth...............fonzer said:order...
theres wasnt a single 5 speed silver 325ci on the lot...actually ZERO 325/330 stick cars. i had to test drive an auto...and take my chances that the stick would be to my liking
