How do you know this? How can you check? Do you call the dealer or is there some way anyone can check?

Anyone who was unloaded in Georgia with an ED car moved beyond "Discharge" status on Oct 8th?

Anyone who was unloaded in New York with an ED car have their car clear customs and VPC yet?

Mine is showing clearing customs on October 10 as well as "LINER RELEASE" on the same day. Whatever that is...
So arrived at port on 8/4, cleared customs on 8/10... That's 7 days.

Of course I don't know how much weekend (6th-7th) and Columbus Day (8th) played a role in that....
If you subtract those 3days ... still 3-4 full business days in customs.
I had hoped for a re-delivery this weekend, but now I am thinking middle of next week?

Today is one month after I dropped off the car in Hamburg (9/11) ... 4 weeks + 2 days... If I get my car next week it will be 5 weeks, which is what the estimate is right?

My latest status is Discharged in Brunswick on 10/8 as well. I'm ready to get through customs so I can at least schedule my PCD date. Last minute flights to the east coast are not cheap where I live.

PS - I am an ED car as well.

Finally showing customs release and liner release. No quantity however. So once the quantity is set, everything should be cleared right?

Why is custom's release in NJ? I guess that's just paperwork I assume.

Hooray, looks like I'm cleared too. Not sure about the quantity. BMW NA HQ is in Woodcliff Lake, NJ so I guess that's why the customs release shows up there. Feels good to have one more step completed, but I'm still practically salivating until I get my car back.

I have the same screen, but like 15 seconds later, I guess you are ahead of me.

As far as I can gather from looking through old threads on here, "CUSTOMS RELEASE" and "LINER RELEASE" means that the car has made it through the customs inspection (I don't think the quantity of these will get updated). Once there is a status of "DELIVERED" that will mean the car has arrived via truck at the VDC. Then you're in a black hole with no way to track your car online, but the car should make it through the VDC quickly unless there was damage. I'm hoping our cars make it there this afternoon and through tomorrow, since I don't think the VDC works on the weekend.

Thanks for the info. I've tried to look what these mean as well, but never got anything. Thanks for sharing! Now I feel much better I got through customs quickly! So who initiates the PCD email, BMW or I?

BMWNA told me on 10/12 that my pump would be fixed at the New Jersey VPC by the end of the day - and loaded on a truck today 10/13.
Although I didn't sense the level of confidence in that was high.

Do you know if your car got fixed and on a truck?

I'm guessing mine didn't process through VPC on Friday, so sat until today. Hope it gets on a truck soon.

Any Georgia drop off people get word that their car is on a truck yet?

Just checked - my car did not make it out on 10/13 and their system wasn't updated with a new ETD - so it didn't sound like they really knew when it might leave.

Got this from my dealer this morning. Looks like VPC work hasn't started on the car. Looks like their original estimate was to get the car to my dealer on Sunday, meaning I should be picking up my car today

Hopefully I'll get it before the week it out.

Looks like I also just made it to VPC. I'm assuming this is because I just got the 'Delivered' status? See attached. (I swear that wasn't there this morning)

I hope I get through VPC real quickly this week.

No, I believe if you have customs released, and delivered that should mean, delivered to carrier from VPC. Cars that have been held up somewhere are missing one of these lines.

Looks like mine just changed as well. It wasn't there two hours ago when I sent a picture to my dealer. Very odd. May have to bug my dealer again tomorrow if it's actually on the road.

I thought so too, as WWL basically delivers the cars to BMW's VPC.
