My dealer told me yesterday to expect delivery this Saturday and ED told me that my car has been load on the truck. So, some of you might be lucky for the weekend !

My F30 was released to the trucking company this morning and should be at the dealers in a few days. I know cross posting is frowned upon but I can't get anybody to answer my post on the 3 series forum so just maybe one of you guys will have the answer.Is there any programs that the dealer can do that we can't do in the I drive?TIA
cheers

Envious.

I don't know where mine is yet. I just emailed BMW NA. I hope they will reply by tomorrow. My CA told me 2 days ago (Monday) that car was still in customs and he couldn't give me a ETA.

Good news

Hi all,

My ED was also on the Don Juan and I found out today that my car is on the transport truck and will arrive in Pittsburgh on Monday via the 800 number...

Hope everyone gets their car shortly thereafter...

I don't think they perform maintenance service intervals at the VDC. Sadly, the reason your car is delayed could be for body work being performed as a result of transit damage. It does happen; none of us want to hear that, but that's not unusual. I would give the people at European Delivery a call ( 800-932-0831) for a confirmation of status update. I did and immediately ask them if there was any transit damage reported . They have to give you that information regardless of the amount of damage.
Good luck and I hope there was no damage for your peace of mind.

The people at the 800 number tell me my car has been released for shipping and I should see it in Minnesota sometime between Friday and Tuesday. I wish they could have been more specific, but that was the best she could tell me.

Received email from BMW NA this am and my car is still in customs clearance. :-(

Any idea on how much time to expect at VPC? My car will need at least a map update.

Mine seemed to get through in a day or so. I had a small scratch on each of my front rims, but probably not significant enough for them to fix. I also needed the map upgrades.
I hope you get through quick. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Saturday delivery. Good luck.

Good news I got my PCD re-delivery day email today for 7/31. Bad news I have to go to Taipei for a couple of weeks as of today too. I won't be back until 8/4. I knew this would happen.

Wow ! Sounds like you are one of the minority numbers that Customs has selected for closer scrutiny . They really take their time when your car is subject to a close review. It's a " wild card " in terms when they release it now. Just depends how much they disassemble during their review. That just sucks !

No kidding ! I was told on Wednesday that my car will be at the dealership this Friday; now they are telling me next Tuesday. I can't take all of this foreplay at my old age.
