Kenneth, what's the release date?

So as my car is coming up on its one month anniversary at the N.J. Holding facility I thought I would ask.

What has the latest information on the release date and what's your source........ Kenneth?

I saw several M5's today at the PCD. It looked like they had at least 12 of them for the driving school.

So any updates regarding when the EPA will finally certify the car?? Some of these cars have been sitting at port for over a month.

Hey Carolina,

So do all these delays at the ports here impact shipping out of Bremerhaven? My car has been sitting in Bremerhaven for almost three weeks now...makes we want to strangle the lady from the 1-800 line every time she tells me my car is in port awaiting a shipping vessel (I know she's not real but still)

Your car might not be at the port in germany buddy, its probably at the port in the US. My car arrived last week, but the 800 number says that its still waiting a shipping vessel. Get your vin number and track the cargo through the vessel website. Even the bmw website is updated that my car is at "its finishing touches", so the 800 is not updated.

The GT-R is an incredible car, probably the best you can buy for the money for all out performance....but the bar is definitely slanted towards performance and not luxury/comfort....the last car I kept for several years was the E90 M3......best of both worlds....I think that is now represented by the M5, and thats why I'm selling the GTR for the M5.

More than likely your car is on a boat, once your car is starting to be built the updates start messing up. It said my car was being transported to the port for a whole week. Then said it was on it's way to the U.S, then back to being transported to the port of exit. So anyone using the 800 number to track your M5 beware that at times it is very inconsistent.
