I'm expecting delivery in early August, may I ask:

--What is the Electronic Sales Agreement? Does it have anything to do with activating Connected Drive or any software?
--Since I don't have a Samsung phone, can I skip the digital key setup?
--Is it possible to check the radiator and the vibration dampener at delivery? Heard a few people had issues with them.
--Don't I need to sign all the purchasing and financing docs before I can do a check of the vehicle? If there are defects, I will not accept delivery.
--Do you still get the hard copy of owner manual these days?
--How much time do I have with the BMW genius at delivery? I want to make sure everything is working or acceptable before I take the car home. (The genius at my dealer is 20-ish years old kid.)

I read through the G05 forum over the past few months and compiled a list for my delivery. I'm not going to paste them here to flood the thread, but thank you for everything.

Bumping this for those picking up this month. I found this thread particularly helpful as I try to kill time before my pickup in February.

Thanks for posting. One question I have is whether this should be done before or after you sign the papers and technically accept ownership of the car. I think it should be done before but last time the delivery did not happen until after I was through finance and had effectively signed on the dotted lines. Therefore, I couldn’t really reject the car if there’s something wrong. Would love to get an idea from folks here on how they have approached it??

You should definitely insist on doing these before signing the papers with finance, and it's your right to do that anyway. It becomes a lot more complicated if you need to "undo" something after you have already signed the papers. I personally have never signed papers for a car at delivery without at least seeing the car with my own eyes and turning it on.

Oh interesting. Never done Performance Center Delivery to know the logistics. Do you sign for the car before flying out to take delivery or something? Or is it just that you've flown all the way there and don't have the practical ability to refuse delivery of the car if something is wrong? lol

My first time also but what I've gathered is you sign about a week or two out from your PCD. I guess if there are minor issues at the delivery BMW will make it right. They can't blame anyone else like dealers can blame transportation or something... the cars are literally handled by BMW 100%.
