If you got your VIN today then I suspect it should be done earlier than Jan 11th if the plant doesn't shutdown for Christmas. I don't know if that usually happens...

Well who knows when the VIN was available, I asked my CA yesterday, he gave it to me yesterday...

Anyone know if Munich plant shuts down for Christmas/New Years?

BUILD WEEK!

It has come, vacations are over... Get back to work factory geniuses! We got a car to build, I am estimated to complete production Jan 11th (Monday) as per the 1-800 tracking.

Excited!


Adding the baseline Harman Kardon settings I will be using when the car arrives and adjust accordingly to my ears:

Bass & Treble :::: Flat
Balance & Fader : Centered
L7 ::::::::::::::::: Active
Speed Volume ::: Center
  • 100Hz +4
  • 200Hz -5
  • 500Hz +2
  • 1kHz +1
  • 2kHz Flat
  • 5kHz -1
  • 10kHz Flat

Settings for Harman Kardon 600w system credit to glennQNYC who is a trained Audio Engineer since the 80's, figured he knows what he's talking about and am gonna use his settings to start.

I'm using his latest setting from the thread and it's definitely an improvement .

sounds like a nice car OP.

Did you opt out of the track package since you will be modding anyway?

That and I won't be tracking the car often enough. I drove one with stock M-Sport Suspension and then the Track Package car, decided it wasn't worth it for me.

1/14 - Status Change to 193... Arrived at port of exit.

Waiting to be assigned to a vessel. Hoping I make it on the ELEKTRA or FREEDOM.

Also ordered the OEM BMW L7 HIGH CID 8.8" Screen to swap out with the 6.5" and inquired about the beta version of the Burger Tuning B58 JB4.


Also Shipping Lines have changed schedules....

Wowza, the online tracker has been broken for months, today you can finally add it!

Q: Do options not show up in this Track view? (M Performance Side Sill Decals?)

My car is awaiting a vessel, LETS GO!

Received my L7 HIGH CID 8.8" screen today, one of the first mods.

---------------------------------------------------------

**Update: Car has made it on a boat and set sail! (1/20/16)

Happy I made it on this vessel, while it's KLine and it offers less online tracking it's a much faster route to Brunswick, GA only 15 days skipping New York Ports!

Ship Name: Columbia Highway
Shipping Company: KLine
Days in Transit: 15
Call Sign: 3EQO8
Year Built: 2008
Flag: Panama

Schedule

1/20/2016 : Bremerhaven - Departure
1/22/2016 : Southampton
2/01/2016 : Baltimore
2/04/2016 : Brunswick, GA - Arrival at VPC

Come on downnnnnnn
