Thanks John, think I may just have the winters put on for delivery to save any hassle.

Anyway, just phoned BMW CS and as of a couple of hours ago, my car is now "9620 At Sea"

Getting very excited now I know it's making its way over! I read it's a 16 hour crossing from Cuxhaven, so should be landed in the UK no later than 9am tomorrow (I phoned them at 5pm today), sound about right?

I was told last Thursday that mine should be at the dealers on Tuesday.

Got to call them in the morning to see if thats still the case and if so when I can collect it?

Good luck mate, it will only take them a day or two to get it ready for you after it arrives with them; considering Christmas etc. if there are any issues or delays from the date they've given, get onto the Sales Manager and then Dealer Principal and I'm sure they'll do everything they can to get it ready for you ASAP!

Mine took a week from the dealer receiving it to me collecting it which seemed unnecessarily long.

Definitely; they've told me it only takes about 2-3 hours to PDI it, so 1-2 days seems more than enough, considering staffing and the couple of other cars they're doing as well. I've just sent an email to the sales manager to let him know the car has landed in the UK, as I doubt he will check first thing in the morning, so he can get straight on with organising transport up to them, as he said last week they've been doing recently; I spoke with him last week and he seemed to be on the ball and said he also wanted me in the car on Friday, so I'm hoping it will be on time

Glad I'm in contact with him as my sales guy isn't great to be honest, very miserable, unenthusiastic and very unreliable, and made some cockups on the spec of my order; started on a bad foot straight away as he was bringing a 330d round for me to test drive, and was an hour and a half late. I called him and he hadn't even set off yet; then he's off for 3 days in the middle of us negotiating the price etc. and didn't tell me or pass me to anyone else, which actually happened about 3 times in total; also takes days to reply to emails and calls.

I'm not letting it affect anything though as I'm buying a BMW because it's the car I want, regardless of any 'middle man' involved, and specifically from him as he did me a good price, which is ultimately all that matters, and not because I liked him, and I will never see him again after I drive the car away, I'm sure Definitely depends on the dealer and probably salesperson as to how well you get looked after though, and the turnaround they choose to give you...

Awesome news! 18 weeks is crazy, don't know how you've done it! Mine has just gone 9650 "awaiting despatch to dealer" today; bloody quick, only arrived in the UK yesterday afternoon! Looks like you were right John, no Thorne/Oxford for prep!

Guys, thought I would post my build/order history to give others of an idea how long to expect, now that everything has seemingly settled down with the delays etc. for F30/M Sports/330d. I think I may be approximately a week ahead of the normal turnaround, perhaps due to it being relatively quiet with it being December etc.:-

Car was assigned build week 49 (w/c 03/12)
12/11 order placed with dealer
17/11 1200 scheduled for production (changes can still be made to the spec while at this status)
27/11 5055 confirmed by production control (locked in production now, all parts been ordered/gathered etc. for production of the car, changes can NOT be made from this point on, I was lucky and did a spec change [added HUD] just a few hours before my car went to this status!)
04/12 various status' inc. paintshop start, body shop start etc., so effectively the card started production on the Tuesday of the build week
05/12 official production date (completed)
05/12 8200 released to carrier
06/12 9000 departed plant
10/12 9605 pre-eu port of exit
13/12 9610 port of exit (Germany)
14/12 9620 at sea
16/12 9630 port of entry (UK)
17/12 9650 awaiting despatch to dealer
18/12 9800 arrived at dealer
21/12 pick up

Looking forward to '9800 arrived at dealer' now, hopefully by Wednesday 19/12, with pick up on 21/12
