I placed an order for a 2011 M3 in early May 2010. Completed paperwork and purchase on May 19th for a European Delivery pickup at the Welt June 01st. Drove the car to the designated drop off point in Munich 2 hours after taking delivery to expedite receiving it back in the US. The car left port in Germany on June 16th and arrived in Brunswick, GA on July 05th. It has cleared customs and is apparently just sitting at the port (baking in the sun) awaiting transportation. It was originally scheduled to be a Performance Center Delivery once it arrived back in The US. My sales agent quit the day I picked up the car in Germany after verifying I'd picked it up (cha-ching, commission cleared), and I've been left to track the car basically on my own directly through E.H. Harms. I am now dealing with the sales manager at the dealership who is trying to help but can only tell me that at this point he has "NO IDEA"..., that's right..., "NO IDEA" how much longer it will take to get my car. The reason for this uncertainty is that BMW is changing shipping companies and it is currently "JUST A BIG MESS" right now. I have engraved keys from Germany, beautiful pictures, license plates, and car payment due yesterday, but no car to drive! Excuse me, but this is ridiculous and inexcusable. It's not that the car isn't here..., but that BMW is apparently having trouble finding transport (or still haggling for the lowest bidder) to get customers ordered vehicles to their proper destination. This is the "excuse" being offered by the dealership..., and I'm told "it is a nationwide problem". Can someone "in-the-know" at CCA verify this? I have offered to fly to the port and pick up the car myself since BMW can't find a way to transport it, but I'm told that is probably not possible either. This is my first Euro-Delivery/Performance Center pickup with BMW (6th BMW) and it is turning out to be anything but pleasant. I sure hope this is not typical, or maybe it's a local dealer problem only. My former sales agent did tell me that the dealership was having major "damage issues" with the open-air transport company and recommended I pick up the car myself, or have it go to the Performance Center. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
