550 ordered-At Port (1/30)

My 550 just reached the port on 1/30, headed for California... Anyone else waiting for a boat?


Ready for it to be here already!

My 550xi is on the Carmen and in transit to Baltimore. Can't wait for it to arrive. Should just make it before I need to make another payment on the M3.

A number of reasons. Biggest was lack of space. I went from sedan to coupe. Initially I was fine with the change, but I do tend to shuttle executives around quite a bit and watching them squeeze into the M3 has never been fun.

The second is wanting AWD.

And finally, I think I've just grown out of the "racecar" phase. The 550xi - especially after I tune it - will be the wolf in sheep's clothing I've been wanting.

Garage List
Mine was loaded on the Toronto 2/2. Sat at port for almost a week before getting on a boat.
