This seems to be a question from a lot of people. So post your time in days that you went from stage 5 to stage 7. It seems to anywhere 2 days to 15 days. We are on day 8 of stage 5

Wow that’s a long time. Where do you live
Our dealer received 8 black ones last Thursday but not our mystic blue. VW customer service said ours was released from the dock last Wed awaiting the carrier for delivery. So who knows.

Many of your posts are not encouraging to me. I am hoping to move to step 5 soon but it just sounds like more weeks of waiting after that. Waiting for Pro S in San Diego

I live 45 minutes from the port of Baltimore where the car was delivered and it took 12 days from arrival at port until it arrived at the dealership.

And adding the wrinkle of changes in Vehicle Transport with the rumor of trains and trucks over just trucks and who knows how that affects delivery positively or negatively? I went to step 5 last Mon/Tue and I can only imagine VW's original estimate of Early May is probably right.

Do you suppose your car is just sitting in a parking lot near a port of entry? Could it be that the dealer has to initiate some paperwork to get the car delivered to him?
Or is delivery on hold 'til they have enough cars to fill a truck?
I don't know, just wondering how it works? I special ordered through Toyota a "brass hat" Lexus IS-250 once and I suspect the dealer left it sitting somewhere, like at port of entry, waiting for better incentives (to dealer) near end of model year. The car had more miles on it when it showed up than one would have expected, plus someone had written numbers with like a crayon on the windshield and they left permanent markings after sitting in the sun for so long. The dealer replaced the windshield. Trust a car dealer - I don't think so....

I get the frustration levels. I was there for the longest. The biggest issue has been the lack of transparency from VW Customers do not want to hear bad news but at least they can plan accordingly. Here is one of my theories. Months ago my EV "specialist" thought I would get my FE before he got a demo. I think VW made a decision to prioritize demos and screw over customers. That is why some of us that have FE reserved are receiving them about the same time as the Pro. I don't know if this forum has helped or hurt those with FOMO? VW, if you are reading this, please hire some people who know how to do customer service, and offer 0% financing as a make-up gesture (I know).

No idea. Dealer said it would be a month before they would see it after it hit the port (despite other FEs being delivered to the area weeks ago in a much shorter timeframe). VW.com says the vehicle is on the dealer lot. I haven't had a chance to verify that but the wheel has not moved for me either way.

I went to step 5 last Wednesday (email on the 15th), step 6 email received on the 16th, and I'm picking up the car at the dealership tomorrow evening (so, 5-6 days between step 5 and what will be step 7, I guess). Car arrived in Houston & made it way to the northern suburbs of DFW.

So from other posts I see that Port of Entry for San Diego seems to be Houston which surprises me. I'm a moron to have thought the ship would go through the Panama Canal straight to California. Does anyone know what POE is for San Francisco? Houston again? Maybe they are routed to SF area through more than one port for all I know. I would guess Ca would get more ID.4's than any other state, but maybe I'm wrong again. Tesla cars are all over the roads here, like bugs.
I drive by the Fremont plant most days and pass many trucks carrying Teslas on 880. At least 1/4 of the cars in my neighborhood are BEV's, plug-ins hybrids or hybrids. And TESLA roofs are starting to appear.

BW customer service said ours was released to the carrier. No explanation on that. I presume it means it has cleared customs and port paperwork and is sitting in a lot waiting to be trucked to our dealer. They only said that when the dealer received it the wheel of pain would change and we would be called by the dealer
