There is no VPC in Galveston, so I don't know how they could offload BMWs there.

Look at that map again. The ships go along the east coast, first. They drop the cars off at the Brunswick VPC, then head to Galveston for who knows what.

Yes the ship moves along the coast, but I would think they drop off cars in Galveston. What worries me is that regardless based on the boats transit time it look slike it takes about 1 month and my CA tells me it will take 2 weeks to be in the states after it leaves the port. I just hate the fact he is just giving me some BS.

Question $734/month Good Deal or Not?

I am ordering an Estoril Blue II 335xi with black leather, hexagon blue stripe trim, cold weather pkg, premium pkg, driver assist pkg, driver assist plus, technology pkg, 8 speed sport transmission, and harmon kardon. At the port they are also installing the bmw performance grills and exhaust. She threw in a rim protector which they sell for $500 at the dealership. The car has an MSRP of $60,670 which doesn't include port accessories. They are doing a pull ahead for me and covering 3 payments which is 700/month totaling $2,100. The lease is $734 a month for 12,000 miles. I am only paying tax and tags up front which is $4,245 and after the app credit of $300 will be $3,945. What do you guys think? Did I do good?

Dude. They can't drop off your car in Galveston, because there is no VDC there.

All US BMWs must come through one of the 4 VDCs: Baltimore MD, NJ, Port Hueneme, CA or Brunswick, GA.

Yes, it's coming from Germany. I was expecting an early 2013 delivery but with an estimated completion date of 11/15...it's looking more like Christmas! It takes about a month to get over to the US after completion so hope to see you on the boat!

If I get the car by Christmas I'm sending out a holiday e-mail with me and my new car with a nice holiday bow tie on top haha

My vehicle is being transported to the Port of Exit, woohoo! My PCD date isn't until mid-January so there's no real rush, but it's nice to see it moving along.
