How do you find out when itís in the body shop, entry assembly, etc?

Also my car is being built in South Africa, when it is finished will it be sent to Germany before heading this way or straight to US port from SA?

I got that info from my sales guy. Ask him or her to check VIR (Vehicle Inquiry Report) . it should say when it entered production, body shop, paint shop etc.

as for the other question. I believe it really depends on what boat is scheduled to leave durban, and what coast you live at.

For instance, my car finished production 11-11. Durban had two boats schedule to leave. 1. directly to US east Coast ending at Galveston. 2. Going Germany then to the east coast, then panama canal, then to the west coast.

I was hoping it went to east coast ship as it would get here sooner ( mid to late dec) but I couldnt find any other folks (west coast orders) that got on an East Coast ship and was railroad to the west.

so as of now its on a ship thats doing the milk run to Germany before to coming to west coast in mid to late Jan.

I see that you are on the west coast as well.

the next west coast bound ship from Durban leaves on Dec. 8. so hopefully your car will be finished by then.

Man your car was finished 11/11 and might not get here until late January thats bull. Hopefully gets here this year man and thanks for the info. I called the BMW number and it said my car was scheduled to be done with production December 4th which was pushed up from December 9 when I called a few days ago. We shall see, I'd love to get on that Dec 8th ship!
