Queen Sapphire is stateside...still waiting

So I confirmed that my ship arrived on Monday the 11th in NJ. I read through the wiki and understand the process of customs and VDC but is there any way to actually track the progress of this? I'm getting pretty anxious.

I can honestly say up until this point I was really not all that concerned when it got here but now that I know it's close I'm like a kid before Christmas. Maybe even more than the night before my flight to Munich.

I know exactly what you are feeling. Just recently went through the torture myself. On the bright side - the christmas gift is well worth it. =)

To my knowledge, there is no way to track the status between the ship docking and the car arriving in the VDC. I think that is the customs black hole.

Your CA can tell you where the car is in the BMW systems. When he/she does, pay no attention to the delivery timeline because the system isn't updated dynamically as delays happen. Hence, the future dates aren't necessarily accurate. If the car has made it into the VDC and stayed for more than 48 hours, you have to call BMW ED for a status (or just wait). That telephone number isn't listed online but you can find it in your ED welcome packet (your CA also has the #).

Hopefully your car arrives in your waiting hands soon.
