State College is only a 4 hour drive from the Port in NJ. I doubt there would be any more delay than for anyone else within a days drive of NJ/NYC.

Fifth and I (both NJ) Are hoping for a 4-5 week time period between production completion and delivery. Yours should be about the same I would think. There's no hard and fast numbers for this. I'm actually picking up my car in Harrisburg, just south of you.

I've heard bad stories about the dealership in State College. I'll be interested in hearing semifaba's experience.

Yea the SA at Paul Miller seemed sketchy, he told me he had 1 order that he was waiting for a confirmation and asked me if i was able to place a 5K non-refundable deposit to secure the car. I told him I would have to wait a day or two to hear from my guy.

I got a call from my SA 3 hours later with a production number so i called Paul Miller State College back, and when i told the SA that my SA just called and i placed a order he immediately told me that the car was already sold. I though to myself "" and wished him luck.

5K non-refundable deposit. That's nuts. And I'm not sure that's legal either. Are they asking above MSRP too?

Wasn't there a lawyer from FL on this forum earlier?

The guy i'm getting it from is the sales manager called Mark Noell, I think he is a great and honest guy. I went there asking if he had allocation left, he said he had 1 left but I need a 1k deposit to secure it. I asked him when I can get it, but he said he can't promise me anything, just within this year. A month later he called me and asked me to go and order my specs. This was a week ago. He promised me MSRP. The whole thing after tax is 70546.70!! I'll go back to him if I need anymore BMWs for sure.
