AH3 - F30H or 335iH if you will

Signed contract evening of 2/28/2013 at Dealership

Car at German Port 3/20/2013 waiting for ship to transport to USA. Sat at port 2.5 weeks

Arrived in Brunswick,GA Friday 4/19/2013

Offload and Customs apparently do not work on the weekend

Put on truck 4/23/2013 arriving at Dealer 4/25/2013

Damage to rear bumper not noted in Brunswick or Dealer when they accepted car - and 3 repaints later, finally had car to my satisfaction 5/3 to sign lease papers.

Production Started: 5/13/2013
Estimated Completion: 5/23/13

Could the car finish production faster than expected. Ive seen some finish on this timeline in 5-7 Days!

How can one ensure that they receive a German allocation vs. the SA counterpart?

Your gonna have to ask the dealer which he has available. If he doesn't have a German build available, you can see if they can get one from another dealer or you're gonna have to find a dealer with a German allocation spot

I thought all the 3 series made in ZA are right hand drive but perhaps my information is out of date. At one time all the 3 series saloons in the UK came from ZA. When ordering our 328 tourer I told the salesman I was interested in a car made in South Africa with an engine made in Birmingham and quick as a flash he said so you are interested ithe 3 series with a petrol engine! Apparently all the estate versions and coupes are still made in Germany so my desire for a South African ca was thwarted!

Oh, I ordered mine on 25/4 and heard from my salesman that production had started on 17/5 so should have it in the first 2 weeks of June. The car is a 328 tourer with Luxury trim, Pro Sat Nav and all the toys that go with it.

I just received my 335i. From order to dealer was 6 weeks (east coast). Dealer needed a couple of days before I could pick it up.
