I really don't think there is that much to do but unwrap it, inspect it and detail it. Did you observe the mileage when it was received? Sounds like they just want to drive it around a while before giving it to you. There have been reports of this.

It took my dealer 4 hours from unloading the truck to having the car ready!

Problem is (or so they say) that because its the first of its kind here the people from the goverment transport department need to give it the all clear and they are taking their time. BTW i did check the meter...

It took about a week to get mine ready as well. One of the struts had a failure reading and I had to wait for them to ship in the part from Germany till I could pick 'er up. The part itself didnt take long to fly in, it was on backorder so I had to wait for them to finish it.

If your part is on the plane now, I don't see it taking too long. BTW the R8 comes with Pierlli tires, yes? Theres no other tire shops in your area that carry those tires?
