Nah, sadly it means my car did arrive in port but will not be shipped out until after your car has arrived in Cali, resulting in my car not arriving in the dealership until April 12... I know my CA cannot do anything about it but I do think it is messed up.. it makes no sense, especially not after I read how someone else from the Tortugas actually had news that their car is going to be delivered tomorrow :S

That sucks. I guess it's the price you pay to live in Hawaii! Think of it this way - once you get your baby, you'll be one of very few on the island with such a pimp car. I may get mine slightly earlier but I'll be sitting in traffic next to 6 others only a few months from now.

Ha! It might surprise you but I never seen as much Bimmers in my life as I've seen here in Hawaii lol. I'm pretty sure it will be similar over here in a couple of months, especially seeing how there is a car show coming at the end of this month

And yeah, it's true, we do have to pay a price for living in a remote place :/

My CA provided me a screenshot of the internal system yesterday showing that my car left Munich on 3/20. According to the phone #, it is still enroute to the port. Really? Four, going on five days now? I thought it only took a day...

Yeah but it's still going to be about 3 weeks until I get my car if I have to believe the schedule... Quite sad if you ask me, I'm so sure it could've been faster. It takes 2 days at vpc, shipping takes 4 days, port of exit is 1.5 hrs from vpc... That's less than a week in total yet the car is scheduled to arrive not earlier than the 12th (and add several days to this for delivery), this while matson has a ship leaving for Hawaii every 3-4 days.. Eventually it will be here, sure, but it's a bit of a downer for me as I expected the car next weekend or at least the first week of April

Ha you think Hawaii pays a premium! I called the BMW dealer in Kingston, Jamaica and the 335i starts at US$104,000.00. As far as I know at one point they had the most BMW's per population or whatever it was and was getting new releases before US and UK.

Huh? Who ever said Hawaii pays a premium? We pay the same price as they do on the mainland when it comes to BMW's :S

If you want to talk premiums, you should see that other topic with the guy from Singapore who has to pay $170K US for a 3 series..

Talk about frustrating... my car was/is/has been at the VPC since 3/20. Still not at the dealership. I guess I really shouldn't complain, as they at least gave me a 2011 335i as a loaner on 3/19...

Is there any damage to the vehicle? Normally cars should be processed in about 2 days at the VPC, there's a chance your car was damaged during shipping if it takes longer and then they'll have to repair the car first before they can let it continue on it's trip..

Interesting. My CA told me it takes 5-7 days from arrival of the ship to the dealership. We are only like 70 miles from the port so I assumed VPC was like 4-6 days. Keeping my fingers crossed, the Green Bay arrives in port tomorrow at 5am. Hoping it gets through VPC Tues, Wed, and Thursday and arrives at dealer this Friday!!!! Ahhhh

Well damages during shipping isnt the only thing that can happen, of course.. If you're unlucky, customs can actually hold your cars for two, three weeks.. My CA told me it happened to their dealership a couple of times :/

Well if it is being delayed for a legitimate reason, I'm going to have to hope it's option b) customs. I don't want to think my brand new car has already been damaged before it's even delivered to me. Oh that dent? Don't worry, we fixed it. No biggie. SHOW ME THE CARFAX!!!
