Mind if I ask, what's the whole thing setting you back? Any concerns over legality?

These units are legal where we live in NC. If Im traveling outside of the state, I can turn it off :-)

On average you are looking at $1500 for the radar system, $500 for the mirror installation and anywhere from 500 - 1000 for the full installation.

It's a lot, but I know I would leave my old escort in the armrest when I should have it on, and I dont like taking them down, putting them back up, etc.

After driving this car in Europe at over 145 MPH, I think I may have to be reminded when Im being watched :-)

It's not fair, right? I feel like we are keeping lions at the zoo, these cars just want to stretch their legs.

I suspect I'll have a ticket within 2 weeks.

Now, do I believe it will be here on the 14th as my CA says? I wouldn't bet money on it. But it should be here relatively soon and I take it as a sign of progress.
So did you guys ever get the 1 to fill in?

I have it the same way. What should i see next? Can someone who is delivered put up there whole tracking?

Thanks!. Its a bit hefty for me to spend on a leased car but i will probably spend that much in tickets in 3 years...

I just received an email from the BMW ED group, and they advised that my car was just released to trucking and should arrive at my dealer on or before Saturday.

If it helps for anyone to compare to the status of their car, as of today, mine was still in GA and my dealer is located in Florida. The latest update on WW is "Delivered From" Brunswick, with the date of 11/8. The My BMW page still showing "Finishing Touches".

Good luck to everyone...hopefully there will be several deliveries over the next few days!

I wish BMW ED would return my emails.

Received the form reply about it clearing customs and to try back in a week

Sent another when the week was up...



It's not as if I'm haranguing them and I've been put on ignore. I've sent 2 requests for info.


Dealer is saying the 17th for delivery. Dealer also says it didn't clear customs 'til the 10th, which does not jive with the BMW ED form email I received on the 6th. Contact at the dealer even went so far as to send me a vid of the computer screen with the dealer data...

So, either the Dealer info is BS (Which I doubt), or the ONLY email correspondence I've received from BMW ED is BS.

I'm not mad. I know the car is close, just highlighting the lack of response from BMW ED.

Since my dealership is installing it, they just rolled it into the lease. Part of my thinks that I will just buy this car after 3 years, the other part says Im going back to Germany to get another one...

Oh, that's cool. Will have to remember that for next time. I hear you... Can't imagine buying a car any other way.

Greg P just dropped me a note that I am at the VPC.

It's finally mine! Hope you all get your cars quickly! We are still waiting on the M5 - but its about halfway through the VPC, and it was on the Aida, which got in later. I am willing to bet everyone on the Turandot will at least be out the door by tomorrow!

Curious about keeping the ED plates on 'til the US State plates come in... I might risk it.

What do y'all suppose the likelihood of getting pulled over for this?
I have no intention of taking my euro plates off until I am sternly told to do so! There's part of me that would be really interested to see what the cop would say when I hand him the german registration booklet!

I am going to try and register my zoll plate numbers as a vanity tag, which will hopefully let me get by a little longer!

I think having the BMW Niederlassung dealership surround lends some validity to it too!

Car came in yesterday, I pick up today. It's been exactly 1 day less than 7 weeks when I saw it last.

Is it kind of weird I am already thinking of my next one? Perhaps m3/4 this time

Received an email from Sirius Radio this morning wanting to confirm my email address.

I'm assuming this means the radio module is some way along the process of being activated. Did anyone else purchase Sirius? If so did you receive a similar email?

My car is still on schedule to hit the dealership today. I have not received notice from my dealership (other than acknowledging my emails telling them it is being delivered today), or from BMW. So just because you haven't heard from them it doesn't mean your car is not on it's way :-)

For those of you that are having issues, I would suggest going to the dealership and asking them to run your VIN number in their system. It provides all the info that you would need.

MLEVACK - you deserve better service from your dealership. It is to me ridiculous that they don't keep you updated. During my ED process, I have emailed my guy 2x, he has not only always replied, but emailed me 4-5 more times to check on my ED trip, tell me the status, copied me on emails to the PDC, etc.

I am annoyed for you...

I appreciate it. Once again, Im not angry as much as just disappointed that they dont "get it". If my CA had not transferred after my deal none of this would be an issue (he was great). The CA that has been assigned to me just doesn't seem to care. Perhaps I am misreading them, they just seem a bit nonchalant about it. Ill let them complete the process to see if they can redeem themselves before jumping ship to a different dealership.
