Here is my time frame:
Drop off at E.H Harms Munich 9/6
Shipped from Bremmerhaven 9/13 ON HONOR (missed the previous boat)
Arrived port NEAT in NY on 9/30 (upon arrival car must clear customs/agriculture)
Car @ VPC on 10/5
Redelivery today 10/14!


Yeah so I get my car back..... and it is pouring out here in NY, damn flattire thing comes on! So I get out to check the pressures and they are all right! How pissed am I? I just reset the system so hopefully it cleared out whatever was wrong.
Oh and the VPC did NOT update the software do the dealer was going to do it, but then I would need to wait until monday to get it, and I can't wait so I am going to bring it in at the end of the month and get a loaner.....
I love the sport package immensely.... glad to have her back!

Fantastic news! I'm still patiently (well, not really patiently) awaiting redelivery of mine. It finally reached New York yesterday, which for some silly reason gave me a degree of comfort.

My dealer is Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley NY. Joe Segreti was my CA. They are a BMW, Masseratti and Ferrari delarship.... great place to buy any of the above... soon hopefully they will get the Alpha Romeos. I just wish they had Porsche, then they would have all the bases covered.

Yeah, me too. My car is at Bremerhaven, scheduled to leave on the "Honor" in two days. It is scheduled into Port Neat (Newark)

I looked it up on the NYC Port Authority site, and they have a map that shows a section of the dock area that is "BMW Auto something or other"

Probably goes there so they can have one staff for that part of the country.

The ship is scheduled NY, Baltimore, Wilmington SC.

There are only 3 VPC's. All cars must enter at one of these to be processed etc. They are: Port NEAT NY/NJ, Charleston, SC; and Port Hueneme Ca. The following link is a more detailed look at the VPC and what goes on there!

I bought my car from Joe also. It was nice an pain free. My car is currently aboard the Jingu Maru and is expected in NJ on Saturday. I'm hoping for redelivery by 11/2 (the date my current M3 lease is up) or very soon thereafter.

Where in NY are you? Are you in NYC? Seems like VPC had the car for quite a while...is this usual?

Anyway, my car is on the Jingu Maru also, coming in on Saturday. Question: How to I track my car once it get's unloaded from the ship? That is, how do I determine when my car has been checked by customs, when it goes to VPC, and when it leaves VPC? Which website, if any?

Thanks!

ED cars are not processed as fast b/c of customs/agriculture. The VPC is backlogged right now b/c of the software campaign. I called my dealer they can tell you where the car is in the tracking game! And when they were of no use I called BMW NA ED and had my car released without the software update, as I needed my car. I also had curb rash on the rim, but from what I was told this was taken care of when I reached the VPC b/c they knew the car had damage (a whole different story) I will take it in to the dealer and get the software updated next week. I am just North of NYC in Westchester, my dealer is in Rockland, good to go with a dealer who knows ED. Best of luck!

Thanks for that link - that was excellent information.

Does anyone know if the ED cars also receive the thick wax coating for transportation as th other cars do?

As far as I know, they don't get anything special done to them. Brand new cars coming (remember, yours is used now) to the States probably do.

I was at the PH VPC tour last weekend and according to the crew there,
ED cars don't get the wax coat.
They will, however, get a priority dot to get them out faster.

Thanks for the info!

My car was built 9/15/05, and my ED was 9/30/05...Being a September build car, does that mean I do not need a software update? That should push my car through the VPC process quicker right? I know that when I picked up my car, I was able to play MP3s in the CD player (and I have Nav). I guess that's an indication that I do not need the software update.

You won't need the software update! Also ED cars do not get the wax since the wax was applied at the factory and then removed before you take delivery in Munich! My car had the yellow dot on the windshield when I picked it up, for quicker processing.
