So in spite of everything, issues have come a complete circle and I were given my automobile the day before today from PCD. Its been a protracted adventure however I did take the shortcut through paying a 5K ADM for an open allocation for an out of state broker thank you Day Laborer because the wait was once 9-365 days when I used to be looking to get at the order financial institution. Here’s my construct
M3 Pageant Xdrive
Fiona Purple prolonged
Carbon Fiber Inside Trim
Govt Package deal
Parking help Package deal
Was once debating between the purple prolonged vs complete however didnt need purple leather-based at the decrease a part of my sprint and Im lovely pleased with the prolonged leather-based. I will be able to verify that the door phase has a strip of purple leather-based for the Fiona Purple prolonged possibility

There were such a lot of thread on ordering, monitoring and PCD revel in so In poor health simply publish some updates
Wait instances have modified and marketplace has modified. Other people used to mention 9-365 days wait however now many sellers even out of state ones will have open allocations. Could be perfect to succeed in out to them and position order with 3-4 sellers. Another way achieve out to agents on this discussion board Day Laborer whom I’ve for my part used and autocompanion to look if there are open allocations to be had. Their commissions are very fair. Normally M4 can also be had at MSRP and even beneath and M3 would possibly nonetheless want a top rate for however many are coming now @ MSRP
That is the largest crap shoot of all. Normally M3 is going to Bremerhaven and M4 move to Zeebrugge. As from my revel in, the BMW Genius nor the CA had any data at the wait instances and when ur automobile might be at the send aside from when ur automobile will get on a boat during which case, the Genius can verify which send your automobile is on previous than ur CA. At port for east coast sure ships can vary anyplace between 2-6 weeks. West coast ships have been most often 2-3 weeks however issues would possibly have modified now. All through my time (Aug-Nov 2022) the common wait instances at port were 3-4 weeks. Mine was once behind schedule 6 wks and a few have been even longer. When any individual is looking ahead to greater than 4 weeks, they are going to in brief move into “Intransit” for a short lived 12-24 hrs (and even shorter). This simply signifies that you automobile is being moved from a special space of the port the place the automobile is parked to the staging lot which is the place the ships are docked. Normally ur automobile will discover a send inside of 1-2 weeks when this occurs (so there may be mild on the finish of the tunnel). Dont consider the Genius that claims that ur automobile is being moved from Bremehaven to Zee when it occurs. Thats no longer true !!!
A number of web site are to be had for monitoring ships. Maximum of them both move at the Wallenius Wilhelmsen (East coast, Canada and West coast)
Kline RORO (East coast)
You’ll verify for those who automobile is at the WW if in case you have a Invoice Of Lading (BOL) which is most often to be had in 2-3 days. The BOL is equipped through your CA or every now and then is also guessed. However there are posts about that. Or u can name ur genius when ur automobile is intransit and get the data on which send you’re on.
WW ships replace the Mygarage to intransit most often in 1-2 days of ur automobile being boarded and Kline ships are just a little late- most often 2-3 days
As soon as the send is out of the Eu coast, it may possibly best be tracked through satellite tv for pc and best Fleetmon gives loose monitoring. You’ve gotten to join a loose account (simply ur e-mail and no CC data)
Normally the ships take 10-14 days to succeed in East Coast. WW ships come to Halifax first after which to NY/NJ
Okay line ships come to Baltimore after which Brunswick and so forth.
If you need PCD, you need to let your CA know as early as imaginable but it surely wont be showed within the gadget till you achieve standing 150. It’s going to display underneath the order main points in ur VIR. Your CA can nonetheless request PCD after that however then its extra complications however if in case you have a excellent courting together with your CA, its price to pursue it
Normally PCD port of access was Charleston however its been everywhere now. Majority move to Brunswick (kline) and a few also have long past to NY/NJ (WW).
Normally PCD contacts your CA (or ur CA can achieve PCD) as soon as your automobile reaches the stated port AND the paintings order has been finished. Normally paintings order is finished at VPC in 24-48 hrs at NY/NJ and 4-7 days in Brunswick and offers them 1-2 PCD dates to selected from. Some have had good fortune calling PCD and gotten greater than 1 dates. So its actually a good fortune of the draw. Normally supply of PCD takes puts 3-4 weeks after it reaches your Port in US.
So far as the PCD revel in itself, for those who havent accomplished any of the BMW occasions – Autobahn or using occasions, its well worth the revel in of the Skidpad (drifting within the rainy with and with out DSC) and a music match (1 mile) with slalom within the automobile that you just ordered that BMW has in its inventory (so u r no longer the usage of ur automobile for those). I were given to force the M3 automobile that BMW makes use of. In addition they then move over the main points of ur automobile and provide an explanation for the ID8 device intimately (esp if you’re new to BMW). The keep on the Marriot and the meals are OK, however the true PCD revel in might be well worth the trouble.
When you have already been to an BMW autobahn match or the using one (most often they use I4 or IX automobiles in this day and age) or the M using faculty factor, then the stuff that they do at PCD is far shorter and no longer a lot other from the ones. The music (slalom) is lovely quick and also you actually cant let free until you select their M using all day match package deal and so on. The skid pad, emergency braking, slalom and stale highway route actually doesnt do a lot if in case you have have already got skilled those sooner than however your effects would possibly range.
If you’re interested by skipping the PCD, you’ll nonetheless do these items at PCD withing 1 yr however there’s no ensure that u would possibly force the similar automobile that u ordered (which will not be a nasty factor) and the resort keep isnt lined. Normally those are the automobiles used
Skidpad- 3 collection M340i (similar for all)
Slalom- very similar to the automobile that u ordered – M3 for me
Emergency braking – M3 for me
Off Street Path – X5 (similar for all)
Trainer using on target with u because the passenger – M3 for all
The excursion of the BMW manufacturing facility (produced X3,X4,X5, X6 and XM) is excellent but it surely felt just a little mundane esp if in case you have already watched movies of ways your automobile is made at Bremehaven and tracked or stalked the mygarage app repeatedly like maximum folks have accomplished. Atleast it provides u a point of view of what occurs in each and every state of this procedure in individual now as ur watch them.
I actually wasnt digging the off highway factor. Sought after to simply get my automobile and skip it but when you need the manufacturing facility excursion, you’re going to be doing this off highway as a part of that team.
The resort revel in was once excellent. Other people have been pleasant and well mannered esp after they knew u had come for the BMW. The dinner was once excellent (check out the Hong Hong Salmon for those who like highly spiced seafood). The breakfast was once mediocre and the lunch on the BMW efficiency heart was once mediocre too however its identical to anyplace. You didnt come for the meals lol.
I misplaced the tire lottery and were given Pirellis. I’ve a protracted force again to WI and so used Bargain Tire in Woodruff to switch to DWS 06 (they’d them in inventory) which I ordered about 10 days sooner than I picked up my automobile on-line. They have been excellent and took care of my emblem new rims and packed my tires in plastic luggage and loaded them into my automobile.
I used Excessive Auto Spas close to PCD to do my PPF. Their costs have been cheap and used Xpel. Most often PPF takes about 1 day. So I might name them ASAP while you get ur PCD date and spot if you’ll agenda it. The are tremendous great to paintings with and Sheldon is superior !!!. You get a BMW CCA bargain of 10% or they most often do a bargain of $250 for those who do PPF and ceramic. Their conventional complete frontal PPF prices about $2300.
I did get some other set of wheels 827M CSL from Paddleshifterz in Germany which Im going to mount the Pirellis on and use as summer time tires. Cant wait to place this beast to paintings as soon as the smash in length is completed. I wanna thank all of the Bimmerpost individuals whom Ive interacted with on this discussion board for the previous 5 months and listened to my court cases and cribbing..lol. Its been in reality an excellent discussion board to get urself aware of the automobile or even vent ur frustrations. Excellent good fortune with ur automobile !!!!
