Bored of the Wait
« on: January 10, 2018, 08:52:11 PM »
Apparently my M50d has now made it to Germany & awaiting a boat to the uk.  I'm bored of all this waiting around now & just want the beast to play with! >:D  I'm banking on the weekend of the 27th now for the grand handover.

Apologies for all the comments on everyone else's posts until then, it's keeping me going until I have my own one on the drive!  :P

The wait will be worth it!
I remember checking out the boat it was on and watching where it was and how long it was to go - SAD :(
If the vehicle is now in Germany going through quality assurance I would think it will be sooner than you think.

Sounds promising. Earlier would be great but will assume the worst for now.  :)

Hi

From what I have gleaned from other who bought the M50d it was worth waiting for and will put a big smile on your face  :) when you drive it.

Just to put it into perspective, in the mid-naughtiest the E53 RHD models were a ‘special order’ and only produced in batches.  Mine took 10 months to arrive (thanks to a Dealer Assist as the normal wait was 14 months)!

I’m very much hoping that’s the case!  :)

10 months!?! Wow, that’s a serious wait for a car and it would take some commitment to wait for that!

I’ve actually just found out it’s on the boat over from Germany. Still looking good for the 27th.  :)
