PCD is June 21st at the earliest. Was in doubt due to the airbag recall but looks like it got fixed at port yesterday.

So all in all, from start of production to you sitting in the car will be ~2 months +/- if it's also going to west coast once it hits the US ports.

Also, I believe it took about 10-14 days for the car to actually start production. Took awhile in the production queue.

BMW is showing a 26 June for a completion date for my F82. Anyone have an idea of the length of time from PCD until delivery?

One month ago, my wife and I ordered a 440i xDrive convertible and today it finally left for Bremerhaven. I am not what one would describe as a "patient person" so this post has kept me sane and given me so much data to work with. Thank you so much for writing up this guide, it’s a life saver.

Finally!!!!!

Hello folks at bimmerpost
It has been a while since I post last time, sharing my decision of sale my beloved M3 2013 and order a brand new M4
Well, after 8 months and a half, it is here!!!
I havenīt picked up from the dealer, but I couldnīt wait to share some pics with all of you
Hope you liked, since we in Mexico canīt track a car
I ask for a production order and have to wait two months or so to be authorized from plant, and because I ask for an individual colour and interiors, plus the competition package, it took all this time
And because of that, the car is 2020
Best regards to everybody and a very special bimmertime

Wow, beautiful package. What individual color/interior are those?

It took one month from order date to get a production number. And I had to call and text a few times to finally get it. I did not get a "build date", but was told it would take about 6 weeks to get the car to dealership. When I track my BMW, I see it is in the third process step of production. Been there in that spot a week. My VIN number is on my tracking page.

I got a production number pretty quickly after I placed my order, but it didn't go into production until almost 2 months later (my car is an Individual build however).

From production begins to exterior body assembly takes about a week so it's only a matter of time now!

Thank you. Flash forward to today. It is now at the departure port. So things moved fast. Mine is an individual build as well. Custom. I am really excited. My care exists - finally!!

When arrived at export port, what is the maximum time the car will sit at the exit port? I understood it would be about 2 days? Also, has anyone dealt wtih damage to your BMW? And how would you find that out? Even if it was very small damage? Conserned of the quality of work at the receiving port on the US side not equivalent to the quality in Germany. How could a car be compromised with damage?

The car needs to pass through customs first then it'll sit at the VPC anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Our last car had wheel damage as we drove it around during our European Delivery and it was replaced and the car was in showroom/factory condition when we took delivery!

I would not worry about the quality of VPC repairing the car because they literally are a mini BMW factory of sorts - every car they have repaired has been brought back up to original spec before it goes to the dealer. That being said, both of our cars have been on boats so it's common to see it be damaged during transit and that's okay! It will go back to original condition when it comes to you!

My car just landed at the port earlier today in Baltimore, did yours too?

Thank you for the reply. No, mine is en route now, and has been for about a week now. I am sure it its passage will end at the last port, which will be Brunswick, Ga, as I am not far from that location. I think I will be the only one in town with a BMW like the custom that I ordered, and I am serious. No one in town has this color, or year as yet. And where I work, LOTS of Bimmers and Mercedes. It is gorgeous. So, If it has been away from port for a week now, I am thinking I will get it from the dealership by Thanksgiving. I certainly hope so.

Awesome! Mine will be at the dealer in a few days!

What kind of build did you go for?

Hopefully somebody could answer this for me. Ordered my M4 in October and expect it to arrive in mid-December. For some reason, the dealer ran my credit on 10/31 after they put in the order. Should I have my dealer lock in the November incentives since they're slightly better than the October incentives, or just wait until December? If they don't lock this month and the programs somehow get worse in December, I'm worried that I might be stuck with the October or December programs. I'm also assuming that if the programs do get better in December, then they can re-lock. Also, will they need to run my credit each time they lock or is the initial check on 10/31 good for 60 days?

It is finally at VPC processing at the incoming port in Brunswick. It is a beautiful build. 440i Grande Coupe xDrive with M Sport package with 19" sport wheels. Snapper Rocks Metallic Blue with White Dakota Leather Interior. It will be the prettiest car in this city!

What do you mean, "better programs/incentives" in December? Lock In?

This needs to really be updated ASAP!! A few of the links are pages not found so no search can be done. Also, you cannot track vessel by VIN number anymore. This is a defunct process as a whole, and updates would be most helpful. Thanks.

Please remove from sticky and update and then refresh
