My first PCD Experience

A few weeks ago, when I did Performance Center Delivery, I documented every step with photos. This of course meant it would take a while to sort through 2500 + photos and, of course, to write the article about PCD.

PCD was a fantastic experience. It's very different from European Factory Delivery but it's equally fun.

Make sure you make it to page four of my article - there are 7 multimedia shows documenting everything.

Finally, my thanks to Jonathan Stribble and everyone in Spartanburg for such a great experience.



BMW Factory Delivery at the Spartanburg Performance Center: 2012 BMW X5 xDrive35d

It’s been a tradition in my family that we go to the factory to take delivery of our cars. Even when I was a lad, I remember going to the local Mercedes-Benz car dealership for my parents to arrange picking up our next car in Germany.

So when it came to picking out a car – even a car for The Diesel Driver’s long-term fleet – one important criterion was the availability of Factory Delivery.

While this usually translates into European Delivery, that doesn’t always have to be the case. Two automakers offer factory delivery in the U.S.: Chevrolet, for the Corvette, and BMW, for all models sold...
