    It was what I was told after I put the deposit down. I assume it is probably related to the new higher mileage program, where they were running those through (my pickup location is Fremont).

    However, I got an email tonight that it might be ready sooner, so we will see. While, I am looking forward to the new car, it isn't the end of the world holding onto my 4-Series Convertible for another month or so with the weather right now (mid 70's and mostly sunny). BMW let me extend for up to two months and will refund prorata if I turn it in mid month.

    Hey! Looks like you weren’t the only one who got the short end of the stick haha. I bought mine 4/30, my advisor said 4-6 weeks (he said more likely 3-5, but 4-6 was his safe estimate). 6 weeks is today for me, so we’re officially past that now. Also, to top it off, on 5/19, my DS said “we’re definitely going to deliver this car before June”. Needless to say, the disappointment and frustration are really starting to build up.

    ~5/24 - DS says he’s currently delivering another car and will get me an update later that day – never heard back.

    ~5/25 - Ask DS about the update he mentioned, and he said that he doesn’t have an update on the car right now.

    ~5/27 - DS sent me a message saying SC discovered a problem with the rear lift gate. It will be repaired and shipped out mid to late next week (approx 5/31-6/2).

    ~5/31 - The repairs are almost complete and the car will ship out late this week or early next week (moved the ship date back to 6/1-6/6).

    ~6/6 - I asked for an update. DS says that he hasn’t heard anything new. I expressed a bit of frustration in this email (I was courteous still, I know this CPO procedure is still kind of rough and it’s not really my DS’s fault), and he said he’s annoyed as well – this is the longest CPO delivery he’s ever dealt with.

    Hopefully you get some good news tomorrow. Will it be ready once it ships?one got shipped local and then inspected. I'm not holding my breath for the date given even though scheduled just in case.

    It’ll be ready, they’re doing the inspection at a different SC. Hopefully yours will deliver on the date, and hopefully mine comes along soon too haha.

    No new news. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, I was stuck with an issue at work over the weekend so it kept my mind off this. Today marks the end of the 6 weeks so hopefully I'll get some news today on where this is at.

    Do you know which SC the car is being refurb'd and inspected at? Mine is supposedly being refurb'd at another SC about an hour away from me, then to be shipped to my local SC for inspection/detailing before pickup. If I had known earlier, I probably would have just switched my SC to the one that actually doing the refurb.

    I'm in Pittsburgh and the SC doing the refurb is in Chicago, so I wouldn't have had that option anyway haha. From my understanding, they did the full refurb there, then they'll detail it and make sure nothing got damaged in shipment at my home SC, then it'll be ready for delivery.

    ~6/12 - I heard from my DS! He sent me the GPS location of my car, right now it's in Columbus, OH. He said it should arrive at the SC by this evening, then they'll detail it and get it ready ASAP. I'm really hoping it'll be ready for delivery sometime this week. Since we're past the six week mark, I'd like to think our home SCs will place a priority on getting it detailed.

    ~6/12 - It's at my SC and looks detailed as well!! My DS asked my availability, so I think he's probably trying to come up with a delivery date.

    Very nice!! Mine hasn't been detailed yet, wrapping up repairs and then detailing. Date was pushed back a couple days in case the shop takes a bit longer so detailing isn't rushed. I'll be happy as long as it's before the 22nd when my loan app expires!

    I wonder if you can connect to your car now via the Tesla app?

    Just took delivery from the Decatur SC. Car is immaculate, service was awesome, and the entire delivery went flawlessly. I know some are having frustrations with the CPO timeline, but my experience was superb. Now I can't wait to drive!
