    Fully loaded (minus the extra onboard charging capacity) P90D ordered yesterday. I'm going from a 2013 F10/M5 that didn't treat me very well:
    1. Subject to the engine factory recall (ok, whatever - new model - it happens - the price you pay for early adopation)
    2. Dash glue goes bad resulting in multi-week wait for replacement from Germany only to have the dealer order the one not cut for the HUD
    3. Turbo leak
    4. And the deal breaker - won't go into park - BMW says new transmission required
    As my warranty expires, I cringe at the battle I've done with this car in a mere 13K miles.

    But, at least here on the westside of Los Angeles, there are so many of you. So - so - so many. Thus, I will need to do things(TM).

    I've been driving my bosses boss P90 for 4 days. I love it more than the M5 for many reasons and like it less for others. But, it's a fun car with a high degree of practicality. Don't be like me and fence sit too long. Get it done.

    Congrats! Can't wait to see pictures. You will LOVE your car. I still have the "Tesla Grin" every time I get in the car...

    Funny. I too traded my 2013 M5 but did not have any problems with it. The MS certainly lacks some of the features of the M5, I do think I will like it more. It was delivered earlier in the week but apparently an interior trim piece is scratched so I can't take delivery until it's replaced. Loved the M5 though!

    You used a referral code correct?

    Thank you for your kind welcome and the Referral code! I've asked my "owner advisor" how to apply that.

    And former M5 owner Prachatice ... nice to meet you. I feel less lonely and afraid now. ;)

    You may need to cancel your order and re order. I'd recommend doing so to save $1,000 as it doesn't necessarily mean you'll get your car later. Your owner advisor will have the official answer of course.

    Lots of YouTube videos on Teslas if you want to entertain yourself while waiting. Everyone from delivery experiences to road trips.

    Congrats! I'm going from a 2014 550i M Sport with 17k miles to a P90D. I said the other day, "I can't wait to get rid of my BMW soon enough". I've had ZERO probs with my current car, it's been a gem, but once I drove the MS I was bitten by the bug! :)

    FWIW - my owner advisor said he was able to apply it. :)
