just got an email from the dealer- i sense bullshit (i.e. we've got more expensive cars to process)- but i've questioned it:

Quote:
Yes has gone consigned but we need a day on it( not nessesarily tomorrow) before we can organise the V55.
When we get that I will need you to organise the Insurance but we cant do that yet will keep you up to date...
its interesting how he keeps saying he'll keep me up to date- not once has he sent me an email without me emailing him first

ask him what the delivery date is to dealer ,as that shows on his computer..
which should tie him down a bit.

feeling a little happier now. he's asked me to get the 7 days insurance- so i've done that, and spoke to him. they're waiting for a manual V55 document. they've got to take my registration plate off my current car, put the old one back on it, and move the new plate onto the new car- apparently this is a pain, but they hope to do it before delivery.

Good news is the cover note for the insurance came back within 5 mins, so there is no waiting on that.

tense times- trying to do everything possible to make sure that its not me that makes this longer than it has to be

insurance is valid from 31/05/2012. Putting the plate onto retention costs 130 and the dealer charges 100 to do the lot in one go- plus i dont have to worry about buying new plates for the old car and new car.

Apparently they manage to get it done in time. the majority of the time. Here's to me being the 1%

my dream date is 31st May- as i'm off work that day. hopefully the dealer can tell me soonish if it will be the 1st or not- as i'll book it off work, or half a day, depending on when my pick up time is

My dealer here in Oslo gave me a delivery date 4 weeks in advance. He probably included a day or two as a margin, but nevertheless quite well done.
Nice to have the mind set on a fixed day

Hi Steve,

Yep, definitely ok for Friday 1st June. Had confirmation from BMW that the car will be with us on Wednesday 30th AM, which will give us time to get the car gleaming for you!
