Hey ChiTown, did you get to select the delivery date or did they assign the date? Also, When you order a car with or without PCD, is the waiting time the same? or do you get to pick up your car earlier with PCD?

Please do. Hopefully it will be a beautiful day and unseasonably warm.

I originally didn't order the car with the PCD. I just changed it last week, and took whatever date they said would give them enough time to prep my car, and was available.

see this thread:

[quote= Also, When you order a car with or without PCD, is the waiting time the same? or do you get to pick up your car earlier with PCD?[/QUOTE]

My SA told me it would take 8 weeks to take delivery if I ordered. That was before I changed it to a PCD, and its going to be about 8 weeks to the day for me, I ordered on Dec 15th.
In my case it seems to be the same, but it also seems there's so many variables for people that it could go either way.
I think it makes the wait less painful to have a set date IMO.

Maybe some other members who took a PCD could comment on their timeline.......

Keeping up with all the internet security paranoia, I decided not to include my real name and address, and thought it would be funny to Photoshop in my screename and see who noticed.
Very good.

Chitown: Congrats!

We are doing the PCD as well, but we specified it at time of order. Wanted the full ordering/waiting/delivery experience *long* (glutton for punishment)...outside of ED (next time).

It looks like adding PCD would only extend the wait time marginally (I hope)

Its still early in the game (SA haven't begun to start discussing PCD details but is "making the arrangements") Have some questions:

Can you do PCD on a weekend? Do we have get different dates to choose from? Can an extra guest (outside the 2) "tag" along? If so, whats the advised way of squeezing an extra person in to enjoy the festivities Do they have an special onsite store for accessories and other toys? Any other PCD online resource out there (outside of this forum and bimmerfest)?

Thanks in advance... and don't forget to do a comprehensive write-up, I am just gobbling the exisiting blogs/reviews/posts...need more details to help count the days/build up excitement

Thanks! Welcome to e90post.
I don't really have all the answers about some of your questions, I'm learning as I go also.
You could try and call the PCD at 888-345-4269.
I will be sure to take lots of pics, and write about my experiences.

Oh the pain of waiting!!! Good luck.

There is no PCD on weekend. Extra person ( third one ) cost $170 if that person is going to drive. They give a date, if you can't on hta particular day they try another one. I ask for friday or monday in advance. They gave me Friday Feb 24.
This is the email that they sent me after I asked for a third person:

"We can make arrangements for there to be three people. You will be responsible for any extra expenses as you indicated (hotel rooms, dinners, lunches, etc.). Please be advised if all three of you wish to participate in the driving potion of the day there is a $175.00 extra driver fee, payable by visa/Mastercard on the day of delivery. We would need to know before your delivery that you will all three be driving so that we may make arrangements for the additional vehicle to be staged".
