The Manon has left the port in NJ, so theoretically, my 535xi is at the port, waiting for delivery to dealership (does BMW have any kind of prep center at/near the port, or all work done at dealership?). Reminds me when I first graduated from college and moved to California for work. The moving van that had my meager belongings (clothes and a small amount of furniture) was delayed for weeks, as the driver quit while in the middle of the country! Hope things work out and I receive the car soon.
BMW has it's own building at NEAT which does some of the vehicle prep. I believe the vehcile prep center at NEAT also repairs the car if it was damaged during transit (which from my understanding happens very rarely) The dealership does diagnostic work and installs any factory accessories that were not installed by the factory (iPod cables, etc.) as well as preps the car for use on the road. I know I'll be able to pick up my car on October 8th from Darien but I'm waiting until the 11th because my schedule is going to be hectic next week.
