M235i PCD (Performance Center Delivery) Photos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I took delivery of my M235i last Friday at PCD and wanted to share some photos from that amazing experience. I'll save you the details on everything you do that day since it has been discussed ad nauseam on these forums. I will say however for anyone who has not done it, this is a must do experience for any BMW fan. It is awesome! Also, one other thing I would mention which I haven't read on the forums before is to schedule yourself some time to explore Greenville, SC. I found Greenville to be a very charming town with lots to see in and around their downtown, make sure you save some time to check it out!

These photos were taken with an iPhone so I am apologizing in advance if the quality leaves something to be desired. Thanks for looking.

Awesome.. how was your timeline for PCD? i.e., how long after your car arrived at port were you able to pick up? how far in advance did you know your exact date, etc?

It was about 2 1/2 months from ordering the car to taking delivery at PCD. My car sat at port for a few weeks before going to PCD so it added only a few weeks to the total timeline.

I knew the date of PCD approximately 2 months in advance but you aren't officially secured until like 3 weeks out.

You have to schedule ahead of time so in theory if you set it for right after your car arrived you wouldn't have to wait much.

Fantastic car ! Congrats.
How much did it cost you ? Just trying to compare the pricing when this car becomes available in New Zealand.

Congrats!! I did the PCD when I picked up my 135i 5-years ago. It was an amazing experience. I definitely want to do it in the future.

Doesn't cost you anything. BMW pays for your hotel stay and a meal for the day. You also get special PCD pricing. You just have to pay frontier ticket or car rental to get there.

Doppler,

You get to drive the same model you are taking delivery of.

Bennu,

You are correct that BMW comps your hotel and food but there is no special PCD pricing, I think you are confusing that with European Delivery pricing.

Thanks for the pictures! Awesome. I'm doing this myself for my EB M235i in just 20 days (May 29). I've worked some time in for Greenville. Is there anything else that you wish you had known before or that you recommend? Would love more insider suggestions before I go.

That is true. They give you a certificate to come back when the plant tours reopen...

Guess I will just have to do PCD again....
