Dude mine is still showing en-route! I am so f-ing pissed right now. My SA is out of town till Wed (not like he has been much help). The worse part about it is I can only go to pick it up on the weekend (its 2.5 hours away) so if it doesnt get here by this friday I will have to wait another week. I am just getting agrivated because no one is telling me anything. The car could be on a damn truck by now for all I know.

Still waiting man!! This really sucks. I went over to BMW San Diego Saturday and was told my car was still at the port. According to another thread somewhere my car isn't a high priority to get shipped quickly bcuz it was a military sale. Priority one cars go out first, the the dealers cars, and the military sale cars. I'm just hoping to get it by this weekend. This is ridiculous. Congrats again on getting yours. Beautiful pics!

Hey thanks a lot. Wow that is flat out retarded. From what i hear, non-priority one can take a few weeks, as they have no real incentive to ship those cars out quickly.

You could drive up to VPC and kick some ass

Not sure about that, I think ED is treated as ED. I'm sure it takes awhile to clear customs from what I've read, just not sure how long.

Hey guys this is ridiculous!

The boat landed on the 6th and my status still says "In transit". Either the customs process is taking forever or BMW has been really bad about updating their tracking. I dont' think its the former because one of my friends who had his 335i on the Green Cove got it last wednesday. He bought from Nick Alexander BMW.

Mine was a European Delivery and I was told it is in the highest priority category.

I'm almost at the point where I would call BMWFS and demand a partial reimbursement of my third month's payment (its been almost 2 weeks since I made my payment). If they have any decency they should at least throw in a few free accessories with the cars when they finally arrive. Somehow I feel both requests will fall on deaf ears.

Sold cars get the 1st priority to clear VDC. So yes, your car will be out of there prior to random dealer inventory.

It sucks that the wait is so long. I dropped my car off on Feb 23rd, and I made my 3rd payment 2 weeks ago as well. From what my dealer told me, the customs guy only shows up 2 times a month to clear all the ED cars. Not sure if that's true or not, but the wait is killing me and I want my car!

I feel your pain. I made my first payment yesterday. Today BMW NA told me that my car was still in customs. She told the VDC to expedite when it got there since it is a car that is paid for already. Who knows when I will get it. It's strange how some cars go straight through and others take what seems like forever.

Yea I just think its really low for them to take our payments and keep us in the dark about the status of our cars. If shipment to the west coast really takes that much longer then they should make our 3rd month's payment for us. We can't be held responsible for customs delays or weather delays or whatever.

Its really funny how BMW's North American operations are so different from the parent BMW AG company. We were treated like absolute royalty during our European Delivery and now this.. Its just tragic!

I'm going to call my CA tomorrow and find out what's going on..

Sorry for venting

Yeah I wouldn't trust the tracking. I took delivery last Friday and tracking still says "in transit".

Every time a call BMWNA they tell me after it leaves Germany the dealer is the only one who can track it and they can't call VDC to get updates. Then I call my dealer and he says he doesnt know whats going on. I talked to my SA last night and he said he will spend all day today trying to figure out what is going on with my car.

Wow! It sounds like you're getting the run around as well. BMW NA (military sales dept) was able to track mine on the computer and emailed the VDC about my car, so I don't know why it couldn't be done for you. Hopefully I will get an estimated delivery date tomorrow. Being that our cars are paid for, it boggles me as to why they are just sitting somewhere. Meanwhile I'm pretty sure another ship will be docking at Port Hueneme soon. Good luck to those guys.

So I got an email from my CA today. He says the car is in VDC right now. Apparently customs took a while to clear it. He said I'll get it at the earliest by friday; but more likely early next week. My status says its still in transit. Not sure who or what to believe anymore. Sick of all this bs!
