Mine left Baltimore yesterday and is due in tomorrow. So maybe I can collect it tomorrow afternoon or Thursday unless the rules change.

This is or at least should be a wake-up call about how everyone does business anyway. I am not anti-social or anything but the countless dealership visit can be annoying until the car is yours. I wish the whole process was done online. I like how Tesla delivers. You can still return the car if it has problems with paint etc. At least make it an option. If someone wants to go there, that is also understandable,

Looks like more bad news... My car was originally rescheduled for a 19 May build date after the closing of euro bmw plants. Now it sounds like even that won't happen. They have no firm build date anymore and think it may be August or September... Sounds like it might be time to start looking for a car already in the US.

It can be a positive thing maybe... It really sucks but you might get an insane deal maybe. They might get desperate.

The Ship carrying my car is now slated to port in to Baltimore 4/12 due to delays. I spoke with my GM and he stated that the VPC was 2 weeks backed up due COVID-19 issues. Supposedly, they were ramping up to around the clock inspections. So who knows how this will go in the next week.

Soooo, my car is in New Jersey port. I have no idea what will happen now. Obviously, a month ago I would have been ecstatic but now it feels dull.

I am not even sure if it will be pulled from the port or just stay there.

Yep, agree. I don't know. Did you speak with the dealership?

I just did. My dealership is closed at least until April 30th.

All the data shows the biggest shortage will happen around April 15th for doctors, ventilators etc.

However, social distancing is already working and most likely we will all be in better shape by mid-May early June if people still take this seriously. I still think people will keep working from home and distance where they can.

As for long term, no one truly knows what will happen since a vaccine is far away. My lease is up on May 19th. I know I would be ok but I would like to get the new car before the lease is up to not deal with more paperwork.

I assume this is a Mexico build? I ordered around the same time, but mines xDrive so it's made in Germany. I originally got pushed to a May production date, but got word about a week ago that it's been pushed until June now...

Yes, it will build at Mexico base on SA's info. My Giulia has lease return at end of June. I hope I don't need to get extension...

Yeah, seems like the Mexico plant hasn't been affected as much as the euro plant. I have a Q50 due back at the end of July. Looks like I'll end up needing an extension at this point. If not, I'll be cutting it close.
