To the OP, I am slightly confused what happened with your purchase experience with your 720, but here are my thoughts based on what I've read. Purchasing any car out of state is a slight gamble unless you go see the car in person. If I were you, I would have at least flown to Chicago to see the car or had them send extensive pictures to you of both the exterior and interior. Its a $350k car so if i am going to spend that kind of money, I am going to see it in person first no questions asked. You wouldn't purchase a $350K house without seeing it in person. If the window sticker stated it came with the MSO wing and you had gone in person to see it or seen based off the pictures that it didn't come with it, I would have told the dealer you wouldn't purchase the car until the wing was installed, simple as that. Gives the dealer motivation to get the MSO wing put on quickly so they can sell the car. Thats the basic rule with any large purchase in life, make sure everything is correct you double check everything, because once they get your money, that's all that matters to them and will be an uphill battle to get items or things that need fixing corrected. Also, you stated that you paid what the dealer was asking for the car. I hope they weren't asking MSRP for the car. Almost all new 720s coupes are being offered at a good discount right now at the majority of dealerships, usually in the $15-20K discount range off MSRP. If I'm the manager or salesperson at the dealership, im thinking to myself "wow this young guy (you stated you were in your early 20's) must not be thinking clearly, he wants to buy this brand new 720 for our asking price, isn't trying to negotiate price, car has an expensive MSO item that is on the window sticker but not on the vehicle currently, and he wants to give us money for the vehicle without us fixing the issue first." Yeah im sorry OP but I can understand why the dealer is playing hardball now. They got your money and are moving on. Hope you can learn from this on future large purchases in life. Double check everything, cross your T's and dot your I's.
