Hello! The E. H. Harms added info next to the Customs Status section for our car. Can anyone tell me what "CBP Extensive Exam Status" means? I am hoping it means it has cleared customs, but don't want to set my hopes too high. It's been almost nine weeks since we dropped off our car and I'm having a hard time staying patient! Thanks for any insight.

CBP=Customs and Border Protection. Most likely, random check and your car was one of the "lucky" in the batch. Probably a 7-day delay.

Thank you for the help. I was afraid that it may have been something like that. The discharge date on the WW site was 9/6, with this CBP date of 9/11. From your experience, is the 9/11 date when Customs is just logging it in (and will be a week or so from there)? I guess it's time to go distract myself for another few weeks!

Me too!

My car arrived in LA on 9/6 as well and has the same status. I called EH Harms and was told to expect the car to be released from customs either Friday or Monday of next week at the latest. :confused:

Ooh....I like that answer better! I emailed our dealer today and will wait to see if he has an ETA.
Thanks! I hope we both get good news soon :)

If you IM me your first and last name plus the type of car and its last 6 of VIN, I will give you the current status and ETA.

I just talked to EH Harms and they said that my car will be stuck in customs at least until next week:( I guess they are swamped in Port Hueneme.

Yikes! I tried calling E H Harms today but the were already closed. I did notice the WW site listed a couple more line items ("liner release" with today's date, and "customs release" with no date). I hope to see some movement soon!

EH Harms web site says "released to manufacturer" as of yesterday. Hopefully the car will get on a truck soon! :thumbup:
