I'm so screwed.

Okay. This is it, dealership told me I was moved too far down the line. I have a family, and I only have August to go to a totally crazy road trip without them, and the M4 will not be here till then apparently. Yes, it could work as the daily later, but I've been waiting for years for this, so I'm not going to take something awful for my holiday.

So, specs. Has to be available before August, Power, rwd, manual (this is the deal breaker), and I have eyes.

I stood at the lot full of M5 and M6 models, and those are not the answer. I'm not old enough, and I want to have a fun car, not something to park at the spouses office lot.

Sedan, Symphony, Ake, and the mean folk, go crazy.

I'm desperate.

Wah, STFU, you just make fun of me again. I'm not going anywhere for fun in that Audi.

Cheers Clan. I want to be told, that I don't give shit about driving a stripper (hihihii), less is more. I'm just now so on flipping edge now.

Land of cheap gas, almost free cars, and I end up driving an Audi. Life is too cruel.

If manual is a must (excluding dual-clutch variants), I think all you have left is:

M3, S4 and CTS-V.

Could pick up an E90 M3

I spend the spring looking for one, and found zero.
Thanks, this will kill me, I'm just fishing if anyone has any new ideas, since this time the timing of the hick up is really going mess up my epic plan.

LOL, I'm not gonna make fun of you. But damn... I can ask about that M4 hornet at my dealer. DCT FTW!! E92 M3 won't be so bad, but we all know you'll cry when you see an M4 drive by.

Haha, I seriously don't give a shit about the color. Pink would work the best with my plan to mix in.

Manual. That's the main thing, and I think I'm not getting the M4, if not possible to get the other early slot at my dealer. I'm going to be so pissed, if after all this time and effort I'll end driving a Porsche. That will kill me.

I have a month to just cruise around alone, and I made the spouse to get his leave for the M4's arrival. The thing is, that next summer I'm once again shopping for houses and other idiotic shit, so I really don't have the time then. I can't make the in laws change their plans to come here for August, and so on, so the timing is locked. I'm a bit now.

Dct is a manual just without a clutch pedal. Learn to paddle shift.

Hmmm, find a demo spec you like at the local £tealers and liberate it for a month You might need to leave a large bag of cash in a locker just incase.

Failing that though yes, you're in a spot of non BMW bother, pants!

At this point I don't give a shit if the fucking russell moves into my car. I'm seriously not going to make fun of anyone after this, this whole car, is messing with my head way too much.

I can't drive with two hands on the wheel. I feel like an idiot, and if I take it back to Europe, a manual is a must. Winters suck there.

Yes, I indeed am. The whole thing sucks but I can't cancel the trip. I'm to selfish. D

Lease an F30 335i MSport 6MT in Estoril Blue. I am confident that this is the car that will tick the most boxes now that the F80 M3 is off the table.

Before you do that, though, try to track down an available F80 launch car somewhere with specs you can live with.

Leasing is not an option, since I only get to keep it here for 1 year, and 6 months max. A good option anyway, but not insane one. Hey, see, I'm almost on topic today. I should get a medal for this!

Yeah. Somehow I think a space ship would be easier to purchase with this time table.
