Congratulations! Magma will look great in that combo! I did not have enough patience for a PCD and hence eagerly await the arrival of mine (SFR/Cognac) early June...

Congratulations on your upcoming delivery, great color combination, know you are excited. Didn't take advantage of PCD on my 35si and since first available date was 7/10, which happens to be my wedding anniversary date, I couldn't resist. Adds some additional delivery time, but will be very fitting. - Enjoy!

Borrowjon - You'll really enjoy the PDC experience! You'll likley drive their Z4 for the driving exercises...saving yours for drive home! Congrats! We just test-drove the Z4 3.0 S Drive...would certainly be a move up from our MINI Roadster!

We are really looking forward to the PCD, passed up this opportunity on previous 3 BMW orders. Am getting up in age, so thought I better do this now while I'm still able. Now have a VIN assigned and production started status, anyone know when the Driver's Manual becomes available to download?

Miata13 - Hope your test drive turns into a purchase. - Enjoy!

Not before it has been through the arrival port processing (VDC), probably not before it has been delivered to dealer. But you can always plug in a VIN from a similar car thatís on a dealerís lot.

I was able to retrieve the manual once production ended.

Status showed waiting for transit assignment from the factory yesterday. If I'm able to count properly, that's 18 calendar days from order placement to ready to ship from factory - not bad.
