Off the Boat!

My contact at the dealership (Baron BMW in Overland Park, Kansas) called me this afternoon to let me know my car made it off the ship safely and has been transferred to the cartage company. It will soon be heading for home. He indicated it should arrive some time next week, but didn't give an exact date. I'm getting more excited about it and looking forward to driving it for the first time.

I would also like to mention here that if you're in the Kansas City area and you're looking for a BMW, I can recommend a great salesperson. I don't want to mention his name here without his permission, but if you'd like to leave a comment with your email address, I can certainly send you an email with his contact info. He's a very nice young man, and he knows what he's doing.

Monday I will present more details on the accessories I ordered with my new car. Meanwhile, I have to figure out how to reprogram a garage door opener so it only operates one door at a time. (I don't know why it operates both door, but it does. It's a hassle when one is up and one is down.) Once I get it fixed, it will be easier to program the Homelink system on the Beemer when it arrives.

Leave a comment and let me know there's someone out there reading this.


  1. Nothing beats the feeling of excitement while waiting for your car parts to be shipped and delivered into your home. It's quite similar with wanting to see a relative or a close friend after a long time. By the way, you did a great job in choosing a dealership, as they surely provided you a timely and safe transportation of your valuables.
