My M5 is en route to the U.S.!

After countless days of waiting upon ordering the first week of Sept., my Azurite black M5 is on her way to the U.S. east coast. The agony now begins...

I can't believe that there are people who ordered their M5's 3 weeks after I took delivery of mine at the Welt and are going to get their cars before I do!

Sorry to hear that - on the positive side, your M5 delivery experience will be that much more sweeter and rewarding. In the words of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, "Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet." Cheers my friend

Does anyone know what "liner release" means? Does this mean it cleared customs and its off the ship awaiting a transport truck? Thanks in advance.

I believe it just is a default release that happens before the car enters the port. From the time the car shows "delivered" to the time it hits the VPC you wont know until your CA sees the update that the vehicle was released to the VPC. If its a US Delivery car and not a Euro Delivery Car it should clear customs in a matter of hours.

My CA told me today that my car was at the VPC and told me to keep my fingers crossed because I may have it as early as this week.

mimustang, I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to call my CA to determine the boat on which my car is being transported.

I may leave it that way because I may become overly obsessed checking every hour to track progress!

Nice color choice

Nice garage - I've got a 2010 X535d fully loaded and am waiting for my Azurite M5 to arrive stateside. Did ED over Labor Day and can't wait for redelivery. Saw the color for the first time at my ED and it's AMAZING. Good luck with yours.

Thanks X5Blair - good luck to you as well. I'm hearing all these stories about delays due to oil pumps and Sandy, it's rather unfortunate how some people have been waiting for as long as 2 months. I do hope yours arrives very soon.

Cheers.

Yeah over two months already and it hasn't left Europe yet. Wondering if I'll even see it by New Years and no one can give me any info it seems.
