Anyone on the Salome?

The Salome is currently carrying my new Black Sapphire Metallic 328i X-drive sedan on its journey across the Atlantic.. Looks like it left Bremerhaven on 12/14/12, and as of now it's cruising through the English Channel with an estimated arrival into Baltimore on 12/26!

It'll be my first BMW!

Who else is along for the ride?

Stateside...

So no one else is on the same ship with me?

Guess I'll just have to enjoy the suspense of the voyage myself! After a long hiatus with no updates on the journey (while the ship was out of monitoring range traveling across the Atlantic from Europe), it's back! It's on its way near Virginia Beach turning north and heading towards Baltimore!

Looks like it'll arrive close to an on-time ETA which is today, 12/26.

Once it docks, another wait begins-- this time to see how long before the 3makes it onto a truck to head towards Ohio!

Merry Christmas!

Pumped

The excitement is building. The Salome arrived into Baltimore right on time and the car has been offloaded. It's now assigned to a transporter and should arrive here in Columbus, Ohio right after the New Year's Holiday next week. If all is on time, that will be about ~5 weeks from order to delivery. Not too shabby.

Thanks to everyone here for their suggestions. Can't wait to get behind the wheel very soon and join the BMW family.

The 328xi arrived at the dealership late this afternoon, so I'll be picking it up on New Year's Eve!! Not a bad way to end 2012!

I'm impressed: it's been exactly a month and 1 day between order and arrival to the dealership. (Ordered 11/28). Not too shabby at all, BMW.

Thanks again to everyone here for their advice.

I'll post pictures next week when I get the car!
