Is there a Baltimore VDC?

My on order M3 went to Baltimore on the California Highway a couple of weeks ago. I am going to be taking a Performance Center delivery in mid April so plenty of time yet. It doesn’t really matter but, I am wondering if they do delivery prep in Baltimore or if they truck or rail the car somehow to New Jersey to do the prep?

I have read conflicting reports that they only do the delivery prep in NJ and other reports that they do it in Baltimore at a Mercedes center. Seems since 2010 they have changed a couple of times on the number of VDC’s they use. My CA wasn’t sure where they will do it. On the dealer Vehicle Inquiry they show “Port Loc: CHSPOA” if that means anything to anyone. 800 number is confused and the web site shows it in Finishing Touches.

The Vehicle Inquiry shows it to be shipped to BMW Performance Center; do they truck the cars down to South Carolina or rail? I suppose they could also use a boat as they stop down there also.

Anyone know? I am just curious.
