I can't freaking log on to the BMW tracker, just sits there in all my browsers.

Anyway, production date was 3/28/2012 and it is in South Africa currently... At least I think.

Port location on my dealer print out is BALPOA and dest. location is 00023071. I did get priority 3 on it because it was ordered by the dealer technically ahead of me "ordering" it...

Does 4 weeks sound normal from production date to delivery in the midwest... anyone?

Hmm

I'd think 4 weeks is too short - probably more like 7.

3-4 weeks? prepared to be disappointed.... youd have to probably have everything go your way... into production tomorrow, youd need to be on ship in like 1-2 weeks. almost everyone here has waited 6+ weeks.

my CA also told me id have it before end of april, but truth is, its probably not coming till first weeks of may. the dealers have no control when your car is shipped out from port.

im also pretty sure the SA cars take longer to get here in the states than from germany. also the priority 3 seems low to me. that actually sounds like theyll get to productions when they can. mine was listed as priority 1 -customer sold when i ordered . not sure what priority 3 is though officially. i ordered on 2/18 and my car got to the port of exit 3/26... thats like 5-6 weeks already...

Maybe how I stated it was wrong. I virtually bought the car off the lot rather than specifically ordered. It just so happened that it matched what I wanted. Maybe they have some special rush because it was dealer inventory?

Car is already sitting at the SA port from all that I can tell on my dealer inventory sheet.

Welcome to the frustration. It took 33 days for my production to start. Looks like 335 wait times are longer thon those who ordered 328's

Mmmm that's rather interesting. I consider myself super lucky because my car was ordered and went into production maybe 5-7 days after. The reason behind this, or so I was told, was that it was already on the line and a part of the dealers allocation, so he simply changed the specs to my order. With that being said it looks like my wait time is going to be about 6-7 weeks. A lot better than my friends subaru which took about 3 months.

I could be wrong but I thought BMW accepts the production numbers right away?

LOL I think a month is long for u since its being built in your backyard. It has to be shipped for us which alone takes a couple of weeks.

Yeah it's not too bad though. My previous 3 series have taken about 4-6 weeks to deliver.
They could just literally drive it out the factory and I could collect it!
