HELLO! GLAD YOU TOOK THE BIG STEP!
My dealer gave me the VIN# the day before it was to get built.
If you can get your dealer's order number you can call the Great Suzanne and ask her for status too, but beware... don't abuse of her kindness
I believe your car will be arriving Jacksonvile, FL around 04/20. MARK MY WORDS
Heh. Thanks. It was surely a big step. Sunlight Silver GT, no other options. I negotiated roughly $400 under MSRP and will be trading in my little brother's Protege5. He will then inherit my Mz3 when the MS arrives.
I've been debating the purchase for the past 2 weeks, basically bookkeeping and 'counting pennies' (not literally, but close) seeing if I could pull it off w/o significantly affecting the Master Plan
. I've got two accts at the bank, one earmarked for new home downpayment and the other for a new car purchase, both accounts pretty much grow linearly and are locked away in 6-month CD's. Luckily the car purchase CD matures around mid-March. Currently, I'm $2-3k short in the car fund of what I need to purchase the MS3...but with the estimated early May delivery (or should I say confirmed by leofaye
), I should have plenty
of time to save up that and drive the car off the lot w/o borrowing a penny.
Thanks again leofaye.
