I will definitely not be doing a custom delivery next time... not worth the agony ... hahahah ... ahhh who am I kidding.. I am sure it is worth the wait.

FYI .. waiting on a 2013 AW E92 M3, with all the bells and whistles.
Bummer. Just checked JAX radar and looks pretty clear off Brunswick, so not sure why the weather delay--after all, Brunswick isn't that busy a port, and seems well sheltered. Was hoping to pick up the car on the 25th before travel the next couple of days but might now have to hope for the 28th.

@Ditrasetman: I'm also now considering avoiding the wash, and am considering having OptiClear applied by a detailer, who also strongly suggested not letting them touch the paint or wash the car on arrival. My understanding is that the ceramic tints are more expensive but are great at heat reduction. They are often less dark, which is what I'm after but clearly not the look you're seeking. I would appreciate hearing how much they are quoting for standard tint.
