Explorer thanks for posting such a great write up about your experience! Your BMW is almost home! I just checked and the status is 'Received at VPC'.
Customs should release it in approximately a week for re-delivery to you. I will continue to monitor it and let you know when it has been released back to BMW for processing out of the port.
Continue to blow up my phone. That's what I'm here for! And I have a new keyboard so email is cool too
You're great to work with and I wish you and your family all the best in 2014!
