I'm thinking that I'm going to BMWNA and try to get some answers. Or maybe try to find a number to the VDC.

Bimmerpost Member AGS also picked up his car for ED on Sept 1st and his M5 reached the port on Sept 26th and was picked up by him on Oct 5th. That's 9 days, including new oil pump put on at the VDC on the East Coast. The VDC in Port Hueneme should have had enough time to get enough new oil pumps for our cars by the time the Fidelio reached there on the 20th of Oct. Since the Fidelio has docked on the 20th, I haven't had any indication of movement or action for our M5's. Today is day number 7 in Port Hueneme which means that if things go as fast as they did with AGS's car we should be expecting to pick our cars up at the dealer this Monday the 29th of Oct, but no one has heard anything. I think something is starting to smell fishy.

I am going to check the WW website one more time before I try calling either BMWNA or the VDC. I'll post here if I find anything out.

With the E60, it seemed to me that when you went from a 550i to an M5, while the leather and the sat-nav were the same, underneath, it was a completely different mechanical driving platform. With the M550i and F90 M5, that vast difference isn't really there.
