PCD timeline

For those who have done PCD, about what time of day do you get your car, and about what time is the day finished?

Trying to plan as I got confirmed today for Jan 7th and have to do a 12 hour drive to South Florida, and be in meetings the whole next day

My car was delivered after lunch, about 1 or so. It took about an hour to go over all the features and to familiarize myself with the car. The driving session took place before lunch but I understand that this order is reversed for some folks so they the PDC can deliver one set of cars in the morning and one in the afternoon. Afterwards we toured the factory and were away by 3:30 or so.

That's great, thank you for your reply.

I was hoping I could do all the activities and still have time for the drive back, which sounds like it'll be doable if the day ends at 3:30pm. Sweet!

That was our experience too. We did the PCD on October 9th. We were done around 2, then did the Museum Tour. The Car Delivery was right after lunch, took a little over an hour. We loved the Factory Tour ! A Must Do. As well as the Off-Road too. The whole experience is First Class. You will have a great time !! We left in the afternoon, and made Atlanta before Dark, around 6 PM.

If you want to get out early they will work with you. We did fun laps with an instructor driving after lunch and then got delivery. The delivery specialist can be done with you very quickly but will also take more time if you need it. I think they said you could even skip lunch and get delivery then if you needed it. We didn't skip anything and were out about 2pm.
