Just got off the phone with a Penfed member representative not more than 1 hour ago. I clarified and disclosed that this purchase was a European Delivery and the title will not be received until sometime after disburse of funds, but more than likely within the 150 days (5 months). They made note of ED delivery in my loan file and said you'll receive sort of nasty letters at 60 days, 90 days, and 120 days which are standard automated Penfed mailings. Call after the 2nd nasty letter if title not yet received to be safe, clarify situation and current status, and they will grant an extension on my file to be safe.
Quick and easy process so far!
Audi says to allow 10 to 12 weeks from drop off in Europe to dealer delivery. Depending on how long you're staying in Europe, you can burn thru the 150 days quickly. One thing you can do is pay for the car just before you leave for Europe.
My Audi was six months from ordering the car to delivery to my dealer with European pickup in the middle. Great experience! Felt just a bit guilty pushing a brand new car to 115 mph on the autobahn, but it's within the break-in rev limit!
