Well, for me it won't really be my daily driver. Haha... I keep telling myself that, but I'm sure I'll always want to drive it. I'm still keeping the good 'ol civic beater, so I'll use it for long commutes. You'd think I'd use the BMW for the longer ones (so I can travel in comfort). I don't know... rather not rack up the long miles I've been driving lately. I figure I can clay bar every 6 months and be fine. As for this bumper hole drilling thing, I definitely like the car without the holes, but I'd rather not hassel with fix it tickets. You guys really think it's worth the risk? What's the penalty in Cali?

I'm new to this whole "tracking" process so I'd appreciate if someone would let me know which websites I should use. My car finished production last Monday.

Regarding the "penalty in Cali" for driving without a plate. It is less than $30 dollars and you have to spend time getting it seen and signed-off by an officer. I've only had this happen once and I never put the front plate on any of my vehicles. So for me; it's worth the hassle and money.

Most of what you need to find out about tracking your car is on the first page of this thread.

Thanks, I saw that information but unfortunately it's rather vague as to how one uses those sites to find which ship they are on or where to input a vin number. Call me blind or ignorant, but I couldn't figure out specifically how to search for ships coming to the west coast. Any help is appreciated.

Ooops, did I say this thread? I meant "The Ultimate Order Tracking Guide!" thread. In any case, I'd use this website:

http://www.dbh.de/index.php?id=151&L=0

to find when your ship leaves Germany. You've gotta get what ship you're on from your SA. Then, after that you can use this site:

http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/

to track when your ship will arrive in the San Diego port. You can track your progress of production using the 1-800-831-1117; say “Vehicle Production Status” and then read out your production number.

Hopefully that helps.

What is the average wait from being at port, getting on a truck and heading to the dealer?

I think, once it reaches Oxnard (Port Hueneme), it takes about a week to get to your dealer. They do more prep at the VPC, and then more prep at your dealer. Man... one week from Monday. I can't wait!

Well, looks like the HT sails today at 5PM from San Diego. I guess it'll dock at Port Hueneme on Monday... then one week from there...

Hual Tokyo dock yet??

Just curious if anyone knows if the Hual Tokyo has docked yet, and if so, how long until the car will get to the dealership. My dealer is in Camarillo, which is only about 20 minutes from where the ship comes into port. You think I should be expecting it this weekend? My dealer is leaving it untouched for me (plastic still on it and everything). The only thing they'll do is do is the normal inspection. Anyway, should I be optimistic for this weekend??

Could be, but best way to know is contact your SA. T-minus 7 days and counting....

That is precisely what I was looking for!!! Thanks for the clarification. I'll call my SA today to see what ship it's on.

Wait a sec fellas, I just got a call from my SA. She says she's getting the car this Friday at the dealer, and that she can probably have it ready either Friday evening or Saturday. South Bay BMW...

My SA tells me my car (just arrived at Oxnard on the Hual Tokyo) should make it to Washington by next Wednesday. Who knows, Pres9544 yours might make to to Idaho about the same time.
