Hoping that my car is delivered today in Pittsburgh, that's the dropoff date for the trucking company, will let you know if they call me and you can use it to gauge your dropoff times. My guess is that they are traveling toward the midwest now.

Congrats guys!

Unfortunately, mine is still in NJ. I spoke to BMW NA this morning and mine was 'being brought to VPC' today. She said to call in couple of days for an ETA. I am not expecting it for another week now.

can you ask what is actually done at the dealer service garage when you take redelivery? i sort of rushed my dealer and he pulled it out of service to allow me to take redelivery last weekend, so i didnt get the full cleaning of the car either.. luckily the 1200 mile service was already done at the VPC, so i hope i didnt miss anything by rushing him

2 things that I know of and there are probably more.
They have to activate BMW Assist and get all your information to do so.
Program your Nav if you have it. good luck

I too recieved my BMW key fob shaped 2 GB USB drive yesterday in mail. Too small for my use but nice gesture.

Now only if they can give me back my car. I was told last Monday that car was going to be released to trucking company and was expected to be loaded on truck on Tuesday. I spoke to my sales rep. from dealership yesterday (Friday) and he was unable to give any ETA. I guess car is somewhere between NJ and St. Louis. Yesterday marked 8 weeks since I dropped off my car in Paris. I don't know who to blame either.

+1 on the USB drive. A fun little souvenir.

But holy ****, what is up with your car? I got mine in Minnesota almost 2 weeks ago! You must be really frustrated, especially since you are losing precious top-down days right now.

There is no doubt the ED experience is an amazing one, but also no doubt that the redelivery sucks. Eight weeks just seems like too much time to wait for a car you are already paying for. I would love to see BMW improve this aspect of ED before my next ED in three years.

Good luck. I hope you see your car soon!

Gee Doc; I have had mine for two weeks now. That is really a bummer having to wait that long after your car arrives port. As I stated in an earlier post: must have been in Customs for a close look. Time is getting closer to consider what to order next . Think I'm going to seriously consider diesel in 30 months for my next go around with BMW. Hearing some impressive numbers. Any way, it's great that you are finally getting to mate back up with your car. She is a beauty !
