Can't wait. I think there is a chance for 30th April!
Great news taka - just as an indication. I was able to collect my car from BMW Melbourne after 8 days from docking. Assuming you didn't purchase any of paint/leather/window protection from BMW, it shouldn't take them long for pre-delivery checks etc.

good news. Thanks dude.

I do have a portable GPS that they need to install. But I doubt they need more than 2 days to do it.

... But I rather take the car first. Hmmm.

I went to the dealership again. Triple confirmed the docking date of 18th (this Saturday) barring the weather condition (which is sunny and mild for Sat hehe

We have set the delivery as priority and pushing the delivery date to 30th April ... finger crossed

It should leave Fremantle on the 15th (tomorrow). Go around now and see if you can see the cargo ship!

They will not know if the car has arrive the yard for compliance. In Melbourne, it is done in Laverton.

The longest process is to have it plated to get to dealership. That part cannot be fully control but can be priorised the order... say your dealer have 30 cars from that ship ... your 135 could be placed in the front.

Once the car is in the dealership. The predelivery is pretty quick... can't wait RadiuM.

Taka, if you know the time the ship leaves you can watch it on the Fremantle harbour webcam.

Probably a good thing - in NSW at least, Easter weekend means double demerit points! You can speed twice as much this coming weekend for the same points.
