Did the 800# tell you your VIN# or did your CA?

My CA won't be in for another 1hr or so.

Removed and re-added my car from the BMW website - now it reflects my colors but no option/packages yet.

Call the 800# and got my VIN. No word from my CA yet.

Then around 4ish got a thank you e-mail from BMW Euro Delivery Dept., nothing crazy, just a thank you for your order / your European adventure is about to begin.

kinda short, and only 3 days with my car, but i really don't wanna overdue the car thing. I'm doing the performance center delivery in Spartanburg, and then drive back down to florida, so i'm ok.
ssabripo, I will be taking ED on my 128 on 9/9 at 3:30 pm. (the last delivery of the day). I will be in town, mostly that night, and probably heading North day after that.

I just called the 800 Number AGAIN -

Says the estimated completion date is tomorrow July 22!

very :w00t: news!


I'm still unable to complete my Owner's Info on the bmwusa site.
I get hung up in the enter: delivery date and milage field and can't complete the form. Oh well...

I don't have a VIN or production date. I hope they're working hard, because they only have 9 more days of production before '09s start building.

You're not missing much other than your proper color combo on the car.

When I removed then re-added mine, I just entered my production #, delivery date (can be whatever you want - i used the date i ordered the car) and mileage at delivery = 0 (european delivery) and it just worked.

Perhaps a different browser will work for you?

yes indeed. On the 9th, we are pretty much just going to be sight seeing, etc. Hell, it might be cool for you to "pick us up" on your new car from the hotel (marriott Munich), and then we can goto the center and just have coffee or dinner or whatever. We can take the metro back to our hotel.

if not, we can meet up somewhere in the city center. :drinking:

Too bad you aren't dropping off back in Munich.... I have several table reservations for Oktoberfest on 9/23,24,25.

Anyhow, let's meet up at the 'Ring, and perhaps we can get photos of each other's car's from the spectator area.

PM me your mobile number, and I'll PM you mine back.

Oh, and I'm staying at the Bergstube with my Brother and a couple friends from Munich (who are driving their MINI Cooper S), you?

Did you get this kind of offer? I booked my own. Maybe you are referring to PCD. Well, some folks have all the luck.

I remember reading somewhere that they put you up, although I can't find it now. I still think they should cart us around until we get a vehicle

Nope, it wasnt described in the welcome packet nor at the BMW webpage. Not also on the gumby clock package. Do you have a confirmed Welt Delivery Day already?

As per the website "Awaiting Transport", and as per the phone #, something along the lines of "Your vehicle is awaiting transport to port of exit".

Granted, it will be Awaiting transport now until I drop it off from ED (9/26) I assume.

I think they'll bring it to Bremerhaven and then drag it back to Munich, just so the factory workers have something to do in August.
