I'm a bit screwed on my euro delivery date and a business trip. I'm away for work from Dec. 10th through Dec. 14th. As a result, I'm actually flying into Munich on Nov. 28th and flying out Dec. 6th. Meaning I'll be proudly accepting my keys and probably handing them right back. I pray the weather is nice and the streets are clear of ice and snow. If so, I can take her (or is it a him) for a spin.

How suxy and backwards is this? I'm actually renting a BMW 1er for my vacation from Sixt Rent Car. It's a hot hatch. I don't know if they even sell them in the US. I might upgrade to the 328i, but it's a $150 more for eight days, which isn't much. Add in gas, maybe it would be $200 more. I'll decide before a go.

Actually, I need to post my itinerary and get some advice. I planned this trip on the fly.
Stay at least until the 8th. You'll have all day the 9th to recuperate before your biz trip. To travel all that way for the experience and only drive your car in Germany for one day...

Or have BMW hold your car and rearrange ED for after your trip.

Lucky. My car completed the same day, but is still being transported to the port of exit. Hoping it makes the ship leaving on the 16th!

Mine says "at port, awaiting a shipping vessel". I'm in no extreme hurry as my current lease ends mid December.

In another thread, two folks indicated their car has been waiting at the port for at least three weeks without getting on a ship. Hope that doesn't happen to our cars...

I can't. I wish I could. I need to be in the office on Friday, Dec. 7th.

And, that one day isn't even guaranteed. I need some good weather for the summer tires.

Nice, mine is also pretty much a same build. It's in the paint shop today, should be completed in a day or two. Hoping the wait to get on a boat isn't too long.

Phone and web tracking both are always lagging behind a few days. Ask your CA for the most recent updates.

Maybe I'll call my CA today. The 800 number still says production will be completed 11/15. What's two more days when I've already waited this long...

You never know...I think they transport the cars by bacthes. If you end up last on a batch you may get transported very quickly. Same thing at the port, it really depends. I think you still may be able to get on the 11/21 boat...

There are many MOL ships scheduled to come into port but on the MOL site don't show itineraries. The next thing I see after that is on WW ship Torrens on 12/15

I've just ordered an F30 330d M Sport here in the UK, dealer says I should have it just after Christmas, but I'm doubtful! It will likely be January, but if it's any earlier it would be great

I'm coming from a 135i; need a bit more practicality (4 doors) and space now for family reasons, and also I loved the added comfort/refinement of the F30, particularly the Adaptive M Sport suspension, and the new interior and technology, which is a big step up from the older cars. I also love the way it looks - the first for me for a 4-door, as I've always had coupés/3-doors! - with its coupe-like stance and lines, looks really sporty. The reduced fuel consumption of the 330d vs the 135i will also be welcome :-) The torque advantage of the 330d vs the 135i will - I hope - make up for any deficit in pure power, for the vast majority of normal driving!

It will be my fourth BMW - previously I had a 123d coupe, and an E92 335d before that. I think the out-and-out savageness of the 335d will be lacking in the 330d, but I don't think it'll be far off in normal traffic, with the torque being similar, and the gearing etc. will be better as well I'm sure.

Spec is below; can't wait! Enjoy your cars guys when you get them.

330d M Sport Saloon
Mineral Grey
Coral Red leather
Brushed Aluminium trim
Interior Comfort package (inc. ext lighting, ext storage, folding rear headrests, split-fold rear seats)
Visibility package (inc. Adaptive Headlights, Headlight Wash, High-beam Assistant, Xenons)
Media package - BMW Professional Multimedia
Harman Kardon loudspeaker system
Internet
Mobile application preparation
Ext. mirrors - folding, auto dimming
Sun protection glass
Windscreen with grey shade band
Armrest, front with sliding adjustment
Seat heating, front
Electric front seats + driver memory
Comfort access
Adaptive M Sport suspension
Dealer is also adding the Matt Coral Red dash trim, black Performance grilles, and dark chrome exhaust tips for me before delivery!
