Hi. I'm sort of new to the BMW club and wanted to know what processes take place @<hidden> the Vehicle Prep Center. My car is enroute to the VPC and I was courious as to what they do there and how long it takes to prep a car for delivery to the dealer. My dealer could not give me the details I want. I have a good idea b/c I've been to the VPC for Mercedes-Benz but not for BMW.
Any information would be appreciated.

We had a tour of the facility. They really don't do much. They clean the car and inspect the body or blemishes. They might perform a software update if needed then it's into the car carriers. Their main concern is that the car is in good cosmetic condition.

Thanks for your reply. I saw that the club went to the VPC in Sept '04.
I hope to get to an event soon.

It depends on the condition of the car. They can do a good bit of work if the car was damaged in transit.

How long it takes, depends on how much has to be done and how backed up they are.

I took delivery of my shiny new 330CiC on Friday and love it. It's in perfect shape; no dings and had only 3 miles on it.
Thank you for the responses.
