My f30 is at a German port, waiting for a ride back home. I'm guessing from this point, shouldnt be more than 4 weeks (northeast)?


I'm doing something pretty unique guys. I'm selling my e90 soon, and have decided to rent a compact car for the next few weeks while I wait for my f30. I will also leave my f30 brand new and parked in the garage, until I complete atleast 2 full weeks of driving around in my beater Rental car. I want to feel that first BMW 'WOW' again with my new f30. I don't want it to just be an upgrade from the e90, I want to be blown away all over again.


What do you think?

Congrats! Out of curiosity, when did you drop off in Germany?
November 8th drop-off in Munich, on the Turandot on the 21st, in NY on the 6th of December, at dealer on the 17th.

ianturner,

Congrats on your car. Maybe we'll see each other once you get to Cali??

Pretty annoyed right now still no car its been in the finishing stage for 2-3 weeks.
10/26- deposit
Hit the port on 12/09

And its still at the port and not the dealer. My dealer seems to have no clue what's going on they said it should be on the truck but that was the 20th when they told me. It's the 1st and still nothing, not sure what I should do.

If you can find a number for the port's VPC you can probably give them a ring and see what the holdup is. You want to make sure it's not due to a missing/damaged part.

I ended up buying a car in LA on 12/6 after I realized my order wasn't going to be here until February. I am so HAPPY to have the car and really enjoy it. I got some things that I didn't order but overall I like the car I have much better than the one I ordered and it cost less buying it in LA.

My car is:

EB2
Black Dakota
Sport Auto Transmission
Front Heated Seats
Tech Pkg
Premium Pkg
19" Summer Tires
Dark Burl Wood

The biggest surprise is how much I like the wood trim. The Sport Auto is a big upgrade and so is the Premium Pkg. I didn't get DH or HK but the stock stereo is fine for me and I don't mind trading it for the bigger tires/wheels which look great.

For those waiting, you can confirm your build options via VIN number here:
