Great news. I hope all the mufti-lingual signs I left plastered inside and outside the car helped my plates make it through as well.

Yep! I put those signs in my car too. FWIW, she did not put any signs in the car and they still made it. So I'd say there's a good chance they'll be there!

Yep certainly some progress is being made
My car just showed up on ITSA so someone in NJ must have run at least a short test ...

I was told yesterday that my vehicle was being processed for repair and would be released for trucking on Thursday.

Unfortunately on Day 3 of my trip a valet in Monte Carlo ran my car into a curb, chipping a rim and the front ground effect on the vehicle. As such BMW is replacing the rim and the front piece.

I can't wait to get it! Dropped my car off in Frankfurt all the way back on September 27th.

Have you had them pull a DCS report? You should see where it is in the VPC!

As large of a program that this is for BMW, and with all the work they do on the front end to make it such a good experience, it's a shame that they cannot provide us with better information. We understand that you cannot dictate the time it will take to clear customs, but once it does, it should be very easy to have information regarding the vehicle available without having to call or email BMW ED, or wait for your CA to get around to checking it. If we hound them for information it makes us look like children, which IMHO is unfair. It would be nice if they would be more pro-active in this regard. They have the information in their systems, they should give it to us. These are cars that we have already paid for, so I believe we should be entitled to more information.

That probably came off a bit angry (which I am not), to me it's just common sense. If would make their lives easier not having to "deal" with all of us pestering them so much.

It's here! Kind of...

I work about 1000ft from the dealership and saw the truck come in! My car was the last one on it. Talked to the driver and he couldn't believe it, he said it almost didn't make it on the truck but he said "come on man give me one more car!"

Hope they can get it processed today!

Mein Auto: 2013 650i vert ED
I decided to give up on BMW ED and my dealership in regards to getting my updates so I contacted a friend that works at the MINI dealership next door. About 15 minutes after he got my VIN he was able to tell me that my car has been released to the trucking company and will be at the dealership on Thursday. The dealership is installing an Escort 9500ci radar detector and I am shipping the mirror to radar-mirror to get the display installed in the mirror, but I think I may still be able to have my car before Thanksgiving if they can pop the mirror off and get it shipped out ASAP. Fingers crossed :-)

And - congrats to all of you that are getting yours, vey excited that we are all getting them within a week of each other. Next time we should all go as a group and plan a European road rally :-)

Good to see those plates.

I am planning the same install. Are you using Laser Jammers as well?

Yes, I got the full package Escort Passport 9500ci with laser shifters. We are shipping the mirror to Scott at radar-mirror.com to install the display into the mirror. For an extra $50.00 they change it to red. For my money, the slickest radar installation I have seen. The dealership is doing the rest of the install.
