It seems to take them forever. You hear nothing, then suddenly your dealership calls to tell you the car is ready.
I think you're correct. The customs release line is probably them printing out the the customs form that came from NJ HQ. Basically when it says delivered, it means it's out of WWL's hands. The customs and liners releases are just there to indicated if customs has the car. From this point until your dealer contacts you is basically one giant black hole. If you've done ED, I think you can call the ED Dept to get updates. You can probably also bug your dealer.

I'm also in this hole as well, seems like I haven't made it through customs one week later. Grrr...
