It sucks but sometimes it happens, DHS or DoA wants to do a visual inspection of the car so it takes longer to clear customs. Mine last year took a week and a half, this time it cleared customs in a day.

By reading other's experiences it can be as quickly as a day to as long as a month. Unfortunately US Customs doesn't care much about us going crazy waiting for your cars.

If you don't get any feedback from your dealer, you can check the WW tracking website with your VIN number and look for the 'delivered from' line entry (which I think means the car cleared customs and is on route to VPC).

You can also email BMW ED dept for periodic updates too. The email is up earlier in this thread.

Good Luck, we all share your pain! (well except those lucky dogs whose car was redelivered ).
