My 335i convertible was on the Elektra. Customs release on 11/30 and was flagged as "delivered from" on 12/3. I assume at that point it headed to the VPC. Spoke to my CA yesterday (12/6) and he told me roughly 10 days. I'm hoping that's a high side estimate. It's heading to the Bay Area, btw.

Any word on your expected delivery? Was yours an ED purchase?

ED in October. My guy told me 5-7 days at vpc, but to LA. I'm going out of my mind waiting for any sign.

I e-mailed BMW ED late last week and heard back this morning. Sounds like my car has cleared both customs and the VPC, has been released to the shipping company and will be at my dealer tomorrow. Hopefully it will only take them a day or 2 to get ready for me to pick up (this is my first ED and I'm not sure what's left to the dealer).

Hope you're in the same situation!

Mine is still at vpc. Which might have something to do with the wheel rash I got in a tight parkade. This sucks.

Oh man. Really sorry to hear that. I was actually able to pick mine up yesterday- a day earlier than expected. Overall a nice surprise that the re-delivery was only 7 weeks vs. the 8-10 quoted.

Good luck...while I can certainly commiserate with the painful wait, it makes the payoff that much sweeter.
