So, the road trip with the bride will be in CA to wine country when the car arrives.

Thank you all
Great - glad it worked out with Aaron.

We bought my wife's used XC90 from a dealer in San Fran. If I drove it off the lot I would have had to pay a CA tax. Took the price of the plane ticket, parking at DIA, a nights hotel and the gas and it was a little less than the shipper the dealer recommended. Add in two days pay and it was cheaper and easier to ship.

I got a great price to CA from CO with Aaron; less than air there, meals and hotels coming back. I would have driven it in a warmer time of year.

I wouldn't even think about driving into the rocky mountains right now either lol. Possibly the southern route through Arizona but even then. Is this the DV E36 M3 you purchased from a CCA member?

Yes, this is the CCA member car in DV over black. I was going to head south and come back via AZ but there is still a 8000 foot pass to go through and some snow there.

BTW the car has a clear bra (the horror), anyone know how to take one off without damaging the paint?

I work at a Car Detail/Clear bra place in Colorado, hopefully its original paint on there. You'll want to grab a heat gun and pull as you heat it up. It's going to be hard and might recommend a second person. Use gloves because it destroys your fingers right above your nails. If starting left to right pull clear bra up and left, not the traditional style to pull from left to right because its easier to peel paint this way.

You can pm me as well, happy to send you a video i have of us doing it.

^^ thanks for that, based on your description I will let the pros handle it. I'll get someone here in LA to do it (don't want to spoil my manicure).

I bought 6 of my last 7 cars out of state, and flew there and drove them home. Its a fantastic way to get accustomed with the car, and unforgettable experience. Took me 26+ hours non-stop to bring my Dakar from CA to TX. It was a very memorable trip. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

What part of town are you in? I'm looking into having some clear film added to my car (at Carlos' recommendation) but most of the recommended installers are not very close to me (Venice)
