Of course it will show up Thursday or Friday. I leave Thursday afternoon for 6 days of elk hunting.

I swear time is actually slowing down. A day feels like a week.

I just wrote my email to BMWNA asking for compensation. Admittedly, the delay SO FAR has only been a week or so, but the lack of solid information is really unpleasant.

Upside: I get to enjoy my E60 for a bit longer.....

So my car is now showing as being in the "finishing touches" stage. Does this mean its made it to the VDC?

EDIT: I figured out finishing touches means it made it to the VDC.

My BMWUSA page doesn't even show the status anymore. It hasn't shown me the status for like over a month. They must think that I have the car already. Or maybe its an eloborate plot to trick me into thinking they already delivered it back to me. Either way this wait is KILLING ME!

I got the same thing. Once I got back from the ED, all I have on the website is the Financial information. I have resorted to calling the trucking company. The DCS said it was scheduled to be on the truck today. It is not as of this writing.

Excellent. What's the number? I want to call them and tell them to send me a picture of when it goes on the truck.

Still no word on my car too.

My CA told me that the car is at VDC. But nothing else. Frustrating

Your CA should be providing this info to you. You may have to ask for an update.

I called the trucking company, and my CA ran another inquiry late last night.

The trucking company said that my car hasn't been released yet from the VPC, and the inquiry didn't state anything new. Just the same estimated dates. My CA is going to be running another inquiry this morning, but he said that if the dealership doesn't get the car delivered to them by mid-Friday afternoon, I'm going to have to wait until Monday or Tuesday!
