Just had an email from my Dealer..quote:
'Your car is built and about to leave the factory'
Having also just spoken to BMW CS - who was initially giving me a load of codswalop - after which I twisted his arm and him having refreshed his screen miraculously confirmed the following:
1. System Code was 9000 Departed Plant then changed to 6000 Transfer to Distribution as we spoke!
2. Shipping from factory to the UK will take approx 5-10 days.
3. Transfer from Port to S Yorkshire (Thorne) BMW Storage and Quality Control (apparently for stringent quality checks for all BMW's entering the UK) to take approx 2-3 Days.
4. Transfer from S Yorkshire to Dealership and final checks 2-3 Days.
He said if things go to plan I should have the car in a fortnight.
