I just spoke with my dealer today - he said my car should be to them by Tuesday or Wednesday, up here in Northern CA. I think it's a definite possibility that you'll take delivery before Thanksgiving. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's hard not to. Fingers crossed!

2011 328i
Sparkling Graphite
M Sport
Oyster/Dakota

I am hoping so. I hope there is not a long turnaround time between the cars getting off-loaded and put on a truck to go to dealer. My dealer is located in the Thousand Oaks area.

I love that saddle brown leather and congrats on yours!

I would hope so Gene! Mine only took 7 days from landing to delivery and that included trucking from Brunswick GA to New Orleans. You should have something in the driveway to be thankful for...

Edit: Now explaining to the family why you need to put a couple of hundred miles on the car on Thanksgiving day, that may be difficult to explain...

hope the vpc is open on saturday...

http://www.m3post.com/vpc/index.asp.htm

"The VDC was up and running even though it was Saturday. Our tour guide, Eric, stated that they normally worked 7AM to 4PM M-F, but worked Saturdays when there was high demand for "Priority One" vehicles (Priority One is a car that is already sold)"

It is not generally open on Saturdays. It's my understanding that under normal conditions they are only open M-F

But yeah, that would be nice

Also - keep in mind, that article was written in 2004. The other one I've seen was 2006. Things have changed in terms of efficiency and speed since then I'm sure.
