Got a call from my dealer this morning. When he came in this morning an Alpine White 330 was off-loading, and it is mine (well, my wife's ). Tomorrow is the earliest he can have it ready but I committed to a fishing trip so Monday is delivery day. BBS LMs first stop next week then off to tint on Friday.

Thanks John. My dealer has been very conservative in committing dates to me and very good so far, except it's impossible to get in touch with him at month end!

Anyway, my car was completed today . it's in stage 190, whatever that means, I guess it means that it's at or on its way to the port, waiting for a vessel!!!

BTW, funny thing, but i have not seen a single e90 over here, and i drive up and down 93 every day!

It's not a lease situation, I sold my C5, and rented a cheapy from Avis, but that's still money down the drain. They suggested a possible loaner last night based on more delays beyond what was originally communicated as a delivery date. If they had not been so continuously over-optimistic about delivery dates, I would not have sold the C5 so early, and the need for a loaner would not exist.

I think you can only expect a loaner if either they have a responsibility as above or you can negotiate it into the transaction.

Whatever you do, if you expose yourself to open-ended cost which depoends on delivery date, get an iron-clad commitment. Then if the schedule slips, you have a case for a loaner to limit your out of pocket expenses.

I found that "only 3 weeks" means "over 5 weeks" and "late June or maybe first week in July" actually means "first week in July if you are very, very lucky".

Deburn, how do you know what "stage" it is in? Also, mine has been sitting at the port awaiting a vessel for 5 days. Still no VIN recognition on the W&W site. I was hoping to hit the Falstaff to Chas. on Monday, but. . . . . .

Wildcat, that's what the guy at the 1-800 # told me when I called BMW today. I dont know what the "stage #" indicates but I put it out there knowing that other people would know.

5 days at the port sounds like a long time. He, the BMW rep at their call center, said it would be at the port for 4 days max. Hope your car gets on a boat soon

Still at the port today awaiting a vessel. Looks like I'll miss the Monday ship to Chas. There are 3 leaving the 14th-19th that arrive Aug. 2-3 in Chas. I gotta be on one of those three. So much for July delivery but hopefully looking at the Aug. 8-10 time frame for pickup (fingers crossed).

Incredible!!

Thanks Kimo; that's nice to know. I dont know how you (and others on this forum) get such detailed info but I've very grateful! Getting the invoice pricing and the MF enabled me to get a good deal!

I'm guess I'm now waiting for a 195 or 196!

SHIPPING TO CINCINNATI

My car was finished on 6/24 (525xi) and the BMW Store indicates they expect it at the dealership by the end of July. It appears it shipped around 7/5 based on the 800 #. However, I still can't track it based on the W&W site and per the Port of Charleston, there are only 2 non-W&W vehicle ships scheduled to arrive in the month of July. I'm a little worried so I contacted my CA to find out the ship name. I'm still waiting! I assume it is the Sapphire Ace for 7/20, the only other one is the Baltic Highway and that arrives on the 11th, too soon for my car to be on it. Unfortunately, I can't verify either ship ever stopped in Bremerhaven. BMW sales are up I think around 18% thanks to the new 3 series so my guess is things are running behind due to the volume.

dennis46c, I also am awaiting delivery at the bmw store in Cincy. Coincidentally, my bro in law just got back from ED on a 530xi over the 4th of July weekend and his is already on the Maersk Tide with delivery in NYC on 7/20. I'm still waiting at the port apparently.

Dealer called this morning. Wife's car will be ready for PCD at Spartanburg center on Aug. 11, so it must be coming in on one of the ships due in before the 11th. I assume your car will be with hers. Our VIN is still not tracking though.

Man, if you're getting your car on the 11th, then I'm screwed because your car was ready quite a while before mine. Mine was completed on 7/8 and was in transit over the weekend and today. I was expecting 1st week of Aug delivery

Anyway, congratulations...!!

Whoa! Mine was completed on July 1 and is still waiting on a shipping vessel at Bremerhaven for a ship to Chas. with no shipping info yet. I was hoping to get on the Falstaff on 7/12 but. . . . Otherwise, there are 3 ships arriving in Chas. on Aug. 2-3. Likely on one of those with Kimo. Not sure what the hold up here is lately.

Well, I'm confirmed through BMWNA and the dealer as my car having left on a ship on 7/9 with arrival around 7/23-25 in Charleston. The OC and the 800 computer lady FINALLY also confirm the car is en route. W&W doesn't recognize my VIN either. Soooooo, I'm assuming that I'm on a non-W&W ship. All sources say I'm on the water on some ship, so that is a very good thing indeed. . . . . Could take delivery around 7/30-8/1 according to dealer.

Thanks. It seems that cars coming into Chas. seem to be making it to the dealers quicker. There is a thread with JohnF also over at bimmerfest where some cars are sitting 10-15 days after arriving at NJ/NYC port. I'd assume yours is coming through NYC/NJ since you're in Mass, right? Any other thoughts from those who've taken del.?

At least some of the reason for my delays at NY/NJ is because of a scratched windshield. More details at http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2059

July 8 Production Completed

Deburn,

My car (325I Sparkling Graphite) also completed production on July 8, but is apparently still at the port awaiting a shipping vessel as of this morning.

Has your car made it on a boat yet?

Hey Wildcat Jon:
An update. Looks like we're "in the same boat" (sorry . . . couldn't resist).
Over the past couple days I've been "negotiating" a delivery date with the Performance Delivery Center in Spartanburg, and know that my wife's car is currently on the water, on a ship named "Engelstad" or "Inglestead" (not at all sure of the spelling), that it does not appear to be a W&W ship, and that it will be in Charleston at the end of the month. That's the good news.
The bad news:
Though the PCD had initially scheduled us to take delivery on Aug. 11th, our schedules are jam packed throughout August and we'll have to wait until August 29th to take delivery! We'll do the PCD on the 29th and then drive back to DC via the Blue Ridge Parkway. A long wait, but it should be worth it.
I assume you are on the same ship, so if you're inclined to and able to track down this Ingelstad (or whatever), keep me posted.
Mike
