So just an update... for record purposes for Australian delivery to Sydney for the BMW F30 has taken 3 days to get from port through customs. Then another 6 days somehow to the dealer.... that's a total of 9 days from Port Kembla to the Sydney based dealer !!
Incidentally (and kinda not as relevant to the main shipping time story) the dealer is so busy, they won't be able to turn the car around for another 10 days! That's 3 weeks of mucking around from the port, customs, dealer preparations, to customer pickup.
This is my first make to order vehicle and my first BMW. Thought to leave this post as reference for other Australian deliveries.
I believe NK80's vehicle through customs and the Perth based dealer took a touch over 2 weeks from port to pickup.
