Well if we make it to port 3:00 AM, say a couple of days for customs, we should have our cars by the weekend. Hopefully.

My CA said 7-10 days from arrival at port. Seems way too long. I am hoping same as you. Nice fall foliage run for the weekend maybe.

yea that seems way too long. Where is your CA? From what my CA said this morning, at most we should have the car to you Monday the 8th and that is only if there is a customs delay at the port. We will see.

SD330i,
I updated my blog with the PCD experience. Here is the link http://bmwf30.blog.com/the-pcd-experience/

I did not have much time as we went on a Wednesday and was home by Friday. We did manage to do a few things. We did the tail of the dragon and also took a route through the Blue Ridge Mountains while heading back home. On the day of the delivery we visited downtown SC which was great and also stopped by the Biltmore Estate. We had dinner at Sassafras (http://www.sassafrasbistro.com/). That's all we had time to do so hope that helps

Did you confirm that you're on that ship? You get the vessel name and VIN?

Windsor, I still don't understand why your CA is not giving you the VIN. You need it to give to your Insurance agent when you close your deal. It is not a top secret #. Just ask your CA or the Manager to Email you the most updated Vehicle inquiry report. It has all the info on it that you need. As anothr poster said, tracking it ,is half the Fun of getting it.

Yeap I did BJ, its on the Carmen. what is crazy about this is that according to the 800 number production on my car ended on 9/3. I can't believe it took close to 3 weeks to get on a ship after that. That is got to be a record. what they put the car on the wrong train?

Some helpful links from here in (probably knew this already, but just in case):

Very detailed VIN decoder (make sure all options are there):

http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/

WW Tracking (put VIN as Cargo ID, tells you when cleared customs)

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

You're in the home stretch!
