Interesting...I had the dealer leave all the protective coverings on the car for me to bring home as well, but I didn't have the piece on the side of the rear window

TN_3, was your car as dirty as this? Im taking delivery in a few weeks and questioning if I want to risk having dealership attempt to remove this dirt and grit.

Not at all, you can see the pics of my car back on page 12 of this thread. Judging by his location, looks like there was some snow/rain that the delivery truck must have gone through...but I would def opt to not have the dealer clean/detail the car.

Did you have them remove the film covering? My guess is there is some residue from the film that has to be removed. Also, was it necessary to clay your car prior to waxing?

The rapgard was surprisingly easy to remove; I was concerned because of the low temps it would be brittle/shred but it didn't. I let the car come up to temp in the garage for a few hours, rinsed it and then pulled all the wrap off. What little residue was left falls off it you touch it - I don't doubt it'll come off with the pre-rinse when I get to actually washing/prepping.
IMO, the delivery lost a bit of excitement since it was so f-ing filthy but i'm glad the dealer didn't touch it (I'm in Denver and the car came from CA so thru the desert, the mountains, over the bridge (or under it would appear) and down to me).

No. All film was left on and removed by me. As another poster said, it was very easy to remove. I didn't clay the car, just did a thorough decon wash.

Just a side note here. I got my BMWCCA rebate in under 3 weeks. Every form I filled out said it could take a couple of months so I was pleasantly surprised to see it in the mail today! If you haven’t applied for this rebate it is well worth the minimal effort.

That's awesome! I'll be on the lookout for mine. I think we joined around the same time.

I was told by my CA a truck picked up my vehicle Tuesday, the website tracker says " at the dealership" which is not correct.

I asked my CA he said tracker is worthless after carrier assignment, it auto defaults to "at the dealer" after 3 days. That truck is taking its sweet time! Still not here.

This is torture! Order placed Dec 18 and like most I check daily. Well today it now shows scheduled for production! Out of excitement I called BMW Genius and they show an estimated build completion by Feb 17-23. Living close to SC I am doing PCD.
