Why almost 20 days from the time it arrives at Oxnard till the time it is ready at the dealership? Seems like from most of the posts here it is normally done in 5-7days.
[In the paint shop as of yesterday!! Status 152]
: Hi MA,
: We seem to be a kindred spirit. I'm in W. Coast too.
: I don't know what production week my car was (328i/steel bl/grey/S+P/Xen/folding r. seats/in-dash CD) as my dealer isn't very communicative regarding the details of the transaction. All I know is that it is a mid-September production car. But my dealer did tell me that my car boarded the ship on 9/27 or so, due arrival 10/25 in Oxnard. Dealer expects the car be at the dealers lot and ready for pickup around Nov 15, and another few days for it to be delivered to me (I used carorder.com, so the car has to be trucked another 500 miles or so from the dealers lot), which makes it around thanksgiving.
: So my status is waiting for my car dealer to contact me with the status when the ship docks... and that should be within the week.. can't wait! (esp in the light my current car just got broken into, and I'm living with no window and no radio until it gets fixed. arrrgh!! For those in the Bay Area, be careful when parking at the Shoreline Century movie theater parking lot. Apparently there has been a lot of break-ins lately for petty theft. there were two other cars that got targeted the night my car got whacked. fortunately they go for windows and not damaging the sheetmetal... easier to fix for us.. I hope! and thank goodness it was my old car and not the new-one-to-be :-P ..sigh..).
: : Skip,
: : I will be having the same problem on black leather in 30 days, too. I think that warming up the visors a little bit, a tad of chemicals and a lot of patience should work.
: : I'm a week 42 prod, W. Coast, and told delivery will be by Thanksgiving. May I ask you what's your status/situation?
: : Thanks,

: : : I've been reading up on how to get the airbag warning off the visor (about 30 days and counting until I get my car!). many people comment goof-off worked well, but wasn't sure if it was tried on both leather and leatherette, or just leatherette.
: : : is goof-off safe for leather? my car will have grey interior leather...
