Post your GERMAN BUILD times from Production Begins to At Your BMW Dealer

My 335 M Sport order, which the dealer told me was a German build, was processed with BMW last Monday and got "Production Begins" status on Friday--4 days later.

For those of you who've seen this whole process play out on GERMAN BUILDS, what's the total time from Production Begins status to At Your BMW dealer?

Inquiring minds...

Sounds like hurricane Sandy added significantly to the times shown above. How's your experience?
