Day #3 in "quality check" ... cause for concern?

Any sense on what determines how long a vehicle remains in "quality check"?

Nah. Mine was in QC couple days as well but it was all good when I received it. I am not so sure if duration of what it shows as Quality Check on tracker is correlated with anything besides internal batching/shifts/workforce and process of the factory.

Great ... also saw some folks 1-3 weeks in quality check as well

As Tom Petty used to say, the waiting is the hardest part

Those statuses are not necessarily the most accurate. I had mine stuck in some state for several weeks and then zip by the remaining quickly. My state currently says the car is in transit but it has arrived at the dealer and is being prepped!

Mine was stuck in "quality check" for 12 days. Then 3 days "awaiting carrier assignment". Today "dispatched from factory", finally...

This is perhaps one of the pitfalls of being able to follow so closely your build. If we were simply told it will be x-y number of weeks we would be fine.

Agreed!

Here is a better one re BMW's tracker ... my tracker says "at the dealer" ... I call my dealer, and they say it hasn't arrived.

The transit companies mark it delivered to BMW but then wait to fill their trucks to get a full load.

Need to wait another 24-36 hrs.

Just picked ours up today and BMW tracking still reads that has been dispatched to dealer...... who actually received it last week. Go figure. Very frustrating that what should be state of the art German engineering is just another faulty software program. Anyway, my wife is very happy! Therefore, so am I. Our dealer was great!

Good luck!
