Factory warranty does not include brake pads, rotors , wipers, belts and hoses. These are all excluded as wear items.

I believe the factory warranty is 4/50 but not 100 percent sure.

Factory warranty is 4 years, was just thinking of the free maintenance stuff, and yea does not include change rotor/blade etc, how much is it though, you must drive a lot more miles?

The lease was for 15k and the cost quoted was 640 so itís a no brainer for me. I will need brakes before 36k and hopefully not again before 45k.

If it's a Priority 1 order, car should land at dealership by mid June (typically) or by end June on the outside.

Bremerhaven port can be quick turn to a ship or up to 2 weeks. It's all a matter of timing.

VPC turnaround can also be 3 days or sometimes 10 days. Usually P1 orders get through within 5 days, unless a vehicle issue delays things.

Enjoy the wait, it's half the fun.

The wait..., I remember my shipment was around Christmas and at port around New Year it was just painful to watch it sit there (wasn't really getting my hopes up with all the year end holidays to start with but was still hopeful...)
