I have only been waiting since Aug 10th, but my patience is certainly wearing thin. The north Florida area manager, David Phipps, put a choke on customer sold vehicles and directed transportation to pick up stock BMWs from the Brunswick port. My CA said that I should take delivery this Friday, but no guarantees.

I would be asking my dealer for the Florida Area Manager's contact info and demand why the Area Manager feels its ok to have a sold customer car waiting at port and putting priority on the stock BMW's

Mine has been at port since the first week of August. The BMW system at the dealer said it was to be delivered 8/24 but that day came and went. Just found out about 30min ago that the vehicle has finally been released to a shipper and should take delivery by the end of the week - fingers crossed

I would start to worry ... maybe there was some minor damage from the ship transport?

87 days for me from built completion until it was at the dealer.

I've named the car Waldo.
