my M3 arrived at port on 5/28 and is being held up by "EPA requirements" --- is this just another BS excuse?

Doesn't really matter since you won't get it before the 21st anyhow, does it?

Just for everyone to ponder. When my car was being produced it would get held up for a week or so at a certain stage, but would go through the next 3 stages very rapidly. My car sat in the paint shop forever, and then sat on the lot at the factory forever waiting to go to the port. But when it made a move it made several moves. Keep the faith and I feel the same way in that our cars can't come fast enough. I have waited a year for my M4 (put money down a year ago) so I keep telling myself what is a few extra weeks. We are all so close, but it doesn't make it any easier.

You are correct, my car would have been finished production today but for the German holiday. Should be finished tomorrow and then it's just a lottery as to how quickly it gets on a ship to the UK.
