Any folks from Texas ordering a new M3?

Here's my upcoming build. Looking for other M3 folks in the greater Austin area.

I'm ordering from Austin BMW. Just waiting for them to allow me to order? They offered me the chance to buy a black M3 Comp that is due to arrive in March but I want the manual.

How long is the list in Austin right now? What is your order timeframe and when did you get added to the list? I am dying to see this thing in person, and hope to catch the black one when it arrives. Who do you work with there?

I ordered from BMW of South Austin, the Sales rep is Lucas. They've been really great, giving me a call as soon as they had allocations available. I believe they're getting a black M3C in, in a few weeks. They told me they'd give me a heads up so I could come down and take a look.

I work with Charlie Baze at BMW Austin. I was put on the list in July. He told me they will have an M3 Comp at their dealership in mid Feb and that it was currently at the port of Galveston getting inspected by customs.

Sticker price, no markup or discounts other than loyalty (I think). I'll definitely post here once it's in.

My car arrived at BMW of South Austin yesterday. They're keeping it in their showroom (locked) until they can release it. Snagged some pics after they cleaned it up!

Yes, Tanzanite. I was anxious it wasn't going to stand out since I couldn't see it before ordering, but it looks really good in person.

What time is your pickup time? I can't wait to see this color on the road. I have been debating a blue or Toronto red. I'm in austin area and hope to see you at a meet or something!

Ordering M3C in Houston

Going to test drive Friday and if its everything I've read and seen in the reviews, will likely put in an order thereafter. First response from the dealer that sold me my M2C said MSRP less loyalty discount. I've seen a lot of talk in the general forum about discounts of 3-5%. Anyone seeing that in Houston?

Planning to order M3C in Brooklyn Grey, Silverstone interior, CF interior trim, Drivers Assistance Pro, Park Assist, and ventilated seats. I'm sure I'll miss the manual transmission, but the extra power and a taller highway gear will be nice. Plus the interior looks a heck of a lot nicer and more comfortable than my M2C

What kind of deals are yall in Austin getting? Here in Houston they don't want to deal so far. Maybe worth a drive up there.
