Thanks! Still crazy to me that I just happened to see your car at the Munich drop off - what are the chances.

That is a super short timeline! Probably the quickest turnaround I've read about through the various forums. The wait was miserable but I wouldn't change a thing and would do ED all over again (hopefully in the next couple years when the wife gets a new ride) - though I would probably wrap the bumper and part of the hood with something to prevent any chips in Germany prior to PPF when returning home.

Thanks - hope you are enjoying the car!

My friends who were with us also live in the STL area.
That's awesome! Absolutely beautiful LSB - when I was searching for my E46M about 10 years ago, I waited a year for the right LSB one to surface, but it sadly never happened - got impatient and settled with a Jet Black CPO with lots of Dinan goodies. If only the M2C was eligible for individual paint colors... mine would most definitely have been painted LSB.

Also - that's awesome that you were there with some STL folks! Hopefully I'll see them around town or at the local C&Cs next spring - there surprisingly aren't too many M2C's driving around here, so the chances are good.

That is pretty unbelievable that they didn't let you know the second it arrived - though, maybe it did just show up the day you took the drive up there? Either way, congrats and glad it made it home!!
