Does anyone know how long it should take for delivery to the dealer from the port. MY 330 arrived at the port on 4/9 and I have yet to receive notice that my dealer has it ready. When I called this past Thursday he said he still had no word....what is normal....is the Iraq warror and anti-terrorism policy making this a longer process...i though i read that somewhere.
What else can i do to find out what is going on...anyone else to contact besides my dealer.

It depends on the back log at the VPC. ED cars get bottom priority. Mine took a month. Nothing you can do except read the boards to pass time.

Something that you must keep in mind is that the cars can potentially have damage from shipping. This is the MAIN reason for a Vehicle Prep Centre. They are to "Prep" the car to a certain level. Be it a small ding to cars accidently fallen from docking ramp.:tsk:
I've been thru this waiting game too many times. And from my experince, it is perhaps best to keep yourself occupied w/ others things in life and you car will be at your door step before you know it;)

any idea on what they would do about aftermarket exhaust or guages?

I dunno what/how the Canadian VPC works. But here in the US, I've been warned to NOT to tinker w/ the car in ANYWAY. This includes changing the rims on the new car. To have a car out of spec will result in the car NOT clearing US Custom and the car will not meet the previous EPA Certification. In short, you are gambling w/ $30k ~$50K you spend on the car. To date I know of no one willing to test the limit.
Just on a side note, Twice I bought some "D" sticker and stuck'em on the lower corner of the rear window. The cars are stripped of the "D" sticker when the arrived at the dealer.
draw your own conclusion:tsk:

but how about people who have swapped steering wheels or trim? i don't think we've heard of any problems with that. but then again, performance parts could interfere with emissions and what not. :rolleyes: :mad:

i'm tempted to give it a try, but i'll get some more info before pushing my luck. afterall, the exhaust will have the cats and the ECU would be easy enough to swap back to stock for the boat ride so that could satisfy emissions. ah well, we shall see; probably safer to explain to airport security wtf i'm doing with steel pipes sticking out of my suitcase vs. letting customs screw around with the car!
hey, perfect excuse to get titantium exhaust as it has a second application for its light weight! :rofl:
