Thanks. Appreciate your info and will follow up on this. Was under the impression that the earliest the "sale" could take place was after being released by BMW (inspected at the port of arrival and loaded on truck transport to dealer).
Will let y'all know how it turns out.
Assuming you are correct, does anybody out there know how soon the VIN# is available after production completes?
