Delivery on 5/14 on F30 328i

I got the date of Monday May 14 for my '12 328i sport, manual transmission at the PC. They say you should wait until 3 weeks before to make my reservations (flight). Do I still need to wait before I buy my ticket? Will BMW be contacting me because the original communication when they gave me the date said to wait until 3 weeks before to make reservations.

No other communication is sent to you unless there is a delay in the transportation of your vehilce. Should we be notified that the vehicle would not make it to us prior to reaching that 3 week window, you will be contacted to reschedule.

That recommendation to wait until 3 weeks prior before making your travel plans is so you can avoid any risk or penalties should your delivery date need to be moved. If you are willing to take that risk, you can make your travel plans whenever.

Let me know if you have any questions. Look forward to meeting you soon

Thanks. Are you able to tell me if my car has arrived to you at the PC yet? the website says final touches are being done. ie. step before it says it's at the dealer.

I'd hate to make my flight reservations and then have the date changed as that would cost me a lot to change the flight.

It's at the VDC but shows completed. Just waiting to be released to the carrier. You shouldn't have anything to worry about delay wise.

Let me know if you need anything else...

Awesome...I'll make my one way flight reservation to GSP for the night before - Sunday May 13. Do I let my CA know my plans and they communicate it to you?

I see you are arriving on a Sunday. Just be aware that the Marriott is in a county that doesn't serve alcohol on Sundays. They do let you BYOB of wine, and will cork it for you.

They do have places in downtown Greenville where you can get a drink. The Blue Ridge Brewing Co. on Main St. has some great beer.

Good to know. Good old blue laws. Indiana has them too. No liquor sales at stores on Sunday. Restaurants can serve though. I always travel with a bottle of scotch. Just got back from Scotland and visited 20 distilleries and brought back 7 bottles. I'll just pack my standby Famous Grouse for the road trip. Obviously not while on the road! Thanks for the heads up.

There should have been a Travel Information form attached to the confirmation email that was sent. If you don't have it, just send me a PM and I'll get another one emailed to you. Let me know if you need anything else

So I'm picking up my new M3 on May 14th also. The BMWNA website also indicates that finishing touches are being applied onto my car.

Does that mean that it is OK for me to make travel arrangements without fear of a cancellation?

Thanks

Cool. I guess we'll meet on the 14th. I'm going to make my flight reservations now. BMW NA site says the same thing on the status of my car too- finishing touches.

That's it... if you don't have a scanner, just send an email with the answers to the questions related to your travel plans.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Just made my flight reservations. Flying into GSP Sunday evening May 13 at 7:52pm. My delivery date is exactly 3 weeks from today. Hope my car is there. I waited until 3 weeks prior as instructed. I haven't heard from BMW that my car isn't ready, so I assume it is. Should be all good to go. I filled out the travel information form and sent it to bmw and they acknowledged receiving it. So they've got my first night hotel covered, the festivities on that Monday May 14. Now I'm off to hunt for my "rest stop" overnight on Monday so I can get up early Tuesday a.m. and do the dragon and plan my route home to Indianapolis.

Oh and one more question. Do I call the Greenville Marriott shuttle after I land or should I let them know ahead of time when I'm due to land? How long should you expect to wait for their shuttle to arrive after calling?

Give them a call as soon as you land. They are only 5-10 minutes away depending on traffic and red lights. Let me know if you need anything else.

Jonathan,

Is there an address where I can ship my license plate to?
This way I won't have to worry about travelling with it.....I fear issues with the TSA regarding a hard metal plate.

thanks.

Ship it to the hotel. Call them to let them know so they can hold it for you at the front desk.

You already have your license plate? I assume we will have a temporary tag in SC.

For Alabama, we just can transfer our registration from one car to the next one, so I'm going to transfer the registration from my old car (sold) to my new one.

Not sure what the rules/regulations are for another state. You might want to make sure that your dealer has arranged for temporary tags for your ride.

Alabama gives you a grace period for driving around without tags, but apparently South Carolina does not.

See you guys there - I'm also on for 5/14.

Is it just 'Festers on 5/14? If so that would be pretty nice.

Sweet! Is everyone staying at the Greenville Marriott? I should be there around 8:30pm. We can chat and have dinner that night and a wee dram of scotch afterwards.
