So i bought my 08 z4 m roadster back in april, and it was finished with production on the 29th of april. It has been sitting down in SC for the past week with no update other than waiting to be scheduled with the carrier.

BMWNA has no info for me on it other than it is just sitting there...any ideas on what is going on? How long did everyone else wait?

Is anyone else waiting for theirs to get delivered to the VPC and having the same issue?

I live in PA and its my understanding the closest VPC is in NJ...Im just wondering what the holdup is...Blah

I'm just super anxious, and i hope everything is ok...especially since my dealer told me it was to arrive at the end of april.

Thoughts?

What's the last seven of your vin? Dealer should be able to find out status wise.

Delivery

I not the expert,Buy just discussed this with the perfrmance rep on doing performance pick up,He said that depending on thow many stops the boats takes sometime three before the cars get to Charlston SC.And some times there has been parts containers that hang things up through Customs,Note times have changed.They can hold stuff for awhile,if not staffed at the docks?

Z's are shipped via train within the US, I believe. Mine certainly was.

My production date was something like 8/18/06 and the car was delivered to the dealer in Southern California around 10/1/06.

Mine came on a truck to CT.
Sorry, right.

I was reacting to the mention of a ship. Movement from the factory in SC to a US VPC definitely does not use a ship. In the case of a transfer from SC to CA, rail transport is used. From the VPC to the dealer the car is shipped via truck.

Ships are for the salt test.

port of call issues

Have you seen the post on the other boards like the 135 board on what happens on the ship is not told to you unless a certain % of the is wrecked!!!The whole top was crushed and they were cutting it off and replacing with not a word to the buyer?
