I should add, mine had an error, I registered with the production number and the website never updated, or even showed the correct model or color. I got the VIN and registered that and it had all of the updated info and I got the video 5 minutes later.

Only 5 out of 7 cameras worked on mine, but it was still awesome to see it drive under its own power for the first time!

I did register but didn't get anything e-mailed. Can I get it from the MyBMW site somehow?

Oh no! None of the cameras? Mine was only caught on 5 of the 7. Sorry, but at least you have your car before me.

Sorry it's probably my fault. I've been checking the production web site so many times, I've probably have shut down their servers! Hope they don't screw up my video. When my kids resell it in 50 years at a classic car auction they can include the video in the description. "One owner, production video included"

Car is on its way to the dealer and should be there tomm. Sad thing is I can't pick it up until early may.

I am wondering whether I should ask them to leave all the plastic and paper IN the car until I inspect it or let them do everything?

Watch them like a hawk. Use family, friends, or whatever you can. We had one for a month at a dealer before we arrived PCS and they were using it as a demo, driving it to lunch, etc. Wife went ballistic. Didn't blame her at all, stood back an watched them wimper . . .

Check on it, though!

Some money and bennies changed hands our direction and everyone left healthy. Wife was still not happy, though. I wouldn't have been either. Won't buy there again.

That surprises me, I have never heard of a dealership using a "sold" car as a demo. I have dealt over the years with at least 7 different dealerships and have never encountered that - not saying it can't happen, but I am astounded a dealership would pull that stunt..!! Seems like a very stupid thing, reputation-wise, for a dealer to do.

It was absolutely unbelievable. Was one salesman. Pretty sure his management didn't know, but don't really care.

The CA has promised me that the car will be kept on the side and away from the selling floor with the other cars on order. I hope he stays true to his word.

Car arrived today. Going to take a quick visit to see the car tomm evening and then the dealer will put the car in the back and the CA will lock the keys until I can pick up the car finally during the 1st weekend in May.

Any things to look for?
