BMW of North America got involved with a Warranty claim on my old 95 M3. I will not disclose what the problem was or anything else because of some papers I had to sign but read on.

Car started at a local dealership for a few weeks…. They couldn't remedy the problem. It went to another dealership with no resolution. That took a few more weeks. Then BMW NA was called in they looked at it for a week at the local dealership and descended that they needed to take the can to BMW's engineering facilities in Los Angeles. So they shipped my car there. For time passes… I was very helpful and non confrontational with them the entire time. I was firm but never threatening. So 3 months go by and I told them it had been long enough… I talked with a BMW big wig and convinced him to give me a new car (it was more involved than I lead to you to believe but still no lawyers involved :) )

The deadline for M3 orders for North America had already passed but I was able to get a special order in for a 99 M3. So I can honestly say that I had the very last M3 order for the E36 :) ….. But I am sure it was probably not the last produced. I was able to spec the car out just like I wanted it. Any option I wanted was OK.

So 6 months after my initial problem I got a new Silver/Black M3. O did I forget to mention that my 95 M3 was originally used for $30K

so to use caps, but i'm just read damn excited! after complication after complication, my car will finally be ready tomorrow. i can't wait!

my new problem is this. should i pick up my car tomorrow afternoon and miss one of my classes? or should i pick up my car friday morning and not miss any? i never miss any classes, even if i'm sick. so that's why i have this dilemma. hehe. =)
