BMW M2 in Houston and surrounding areas

Has anyone received their M2 in Houston, TX or its surrounding areas? I'd love to come see one since I'm currently awaiting production start in June. Thank you!

Few weeks ago a BMW rep from Houston drove down a pre production M2 to the dealer in Austin. No idea what dealer he worked for but he drove the car back to Houston, might still be at one of the dealers there.

That car is probably on its way back to NJ, to be crushed. Think the guy is from BMW NA...didnt let anyone drive it but took salespeople for rides.
That car unfortunately was riddled with hail damage (from San Antonio)

Thank you .. thank you .. and thank you. Franklin, are you in Houston? What part of Houston? I'm on the NW side but work in Downtown. Would you mind meeting up once you've picked up your M2? I'd love to buy you a beer or coffee just so I can check out your new ride. Like I said, mine is supposed to go into production week 23. Can't wait ....

Thank you so much for your response F12M6MD. Congratulations! Can I come and take a peek at it? I live in Spring/Tomball area but work in downtown. Would love to stop by and look at it. Coffee or beer would be on me if you're up for it.

My apologies. I thought you already had the car. Yup, will wait for your response. What color and transmission did you go with? And the dealer if you don't mind sharing ...

Franklin and F12
Did you both purchase from Advantage?
Im # 11 on their list doing ED and was told I should have in sept. Just checking if they are receiving their 2 allocations per month.

If I may ask, lease or finance?

I am #1 on Advantage Midtown's list. I met #2 not sure if he's on bimmerpost. Not sure when he's getting his. #4 at midtown is one of the SA and he expects his in July/Aug i think.

Wont be leasing.

LOL. At lease vs finance ..

That's not really a question is it ?

Hint- if you haven't looked at the lease rates yet...
