F12, thank you so much for meeting me last Monday. Loved your car and it looks so much better in person. Congratulations once again!!

And I can't wait to get my hands on my MY16 M2 scheduled for production Week 24.

Franklin, as discussed, let's try to meet up during lunch as I'm just a block away on the 1500 block of Louisiana.

Glad to hear the Houston crowd is getting closer to getting our F87.
I am #1 at BMW WEST, my car is on the boat I think. My sales guy is not very talkative. Status from MYBMW said "en route to the US"

Specification:
AW
DCT
EXEC
M Performance Exhaust, titanium tips
CF spoiler
M graphics
CF interior set
(have parts ready to be installed at my race shop)

Signed up to drive COTA for the 4th time. Have not been this excited about an M product since taking delivery of my e36.

Do you remember your scheduled production week? And would you mind sharing it? I'm trying to gauge how accurate their production scheduling is ...

Tried calling BMWUSA this am but the wait was too long -18 min. I am glad that you know more about the whereabout of your M2. Our local BMWCCA chapter is going to tour the Galveston facility on June 3rd. We may be able to spot your M2 there!

Cool, sounds like a fun tour! I hope it's still not there and already delivered to me by then

But i heard from my SA that the new Galveston facility is pretty slow right now at processing cars

Congrats Franklin! It sure has been a longer wait than in 2011 when we got our 1Ms. My PCD is June 13th , car is at port since May 14th.

Gents,

Congratulations Franklin and Art. I'm #1 at BMW of The Woodlands and expect my car to go into production on the 24th Week of 2016. It would be great to get together once we all have our cars delivered.

Do you guys know anyone with LBB yet? I have a hard stop on any more modifications on Friday, May 20th.
