Fastest order+delivery ever?

I ordered a 328i at 6pm on January 15.
Production started on 1/16.
It reached Bremen on 1/29.
It reached Bremmerhaven on 2/2.
It reaches New York (the arrival port) on 2/13.

I don't know when it will get its black kidneys installed or be transported to Philadelphia, but I may be in line for ordering and getting a car from Germany in under five weeks.

This seems unusual. Is it?

It's certainly possible if your car was already in 112 status. It just depends on what code your car is in when you make the order. My E90 arrived just under 6 weeks. My F30 was 6.5 weeks.

Also arriving at the port means you have another 3-7 days before arriving at the dealer. You're in reality looking at closer to 6 weeks.

Pretty much same schedule I had. Went into production 2 days after ordering (was in status 112 when I ordered), had it in hand about 6 weeks after ordering (including a 3 day delay at sea by ship, VPC processing and dealer prep).

Well, I guess speaking about it changed it. The Boheme is now scheduled to get to NY on 2/14 instead of 2/13. (Damn snow!)

Know the feeling. My ship was scheduled to dock the 11th, no sign of it the 11th... 12th... 13th... finally docked 14th. Was going mad with frustration not knowing where it was!

Speedy to Ohio

I had an amazingly fast delivery too (my first BMW).. Ordered on 11/28/12 and arrived at the dealer on 12/29/2012 for a New Year's Eve Delivery to me on 12/31!

2013 BMW 328i X-drive Sport Line Sedan -- Black Sapphire Metallic

- 11/28/2012 Order placed at 5pm 11/28/2012
- 11/29/12: Production began
- ~ 12/7/12: Production completed
- 12/8/12: In transport to the port at Bremerhaven
- ~ 12/10/12: At port waiting on vessel; booked for vessel.
- 12/14/12: Loaded on vessel (Wallenius Wilhelmsen: "Salome"); vessel departs Germany.
- 12/27/12: Discharged from vessel - Port of Baltimore, MD
- 12/29/12: Car arrived late afternoon at dealer in Columbus, OH

Pretty impressive the more I think about it.. My CA and sales manager were both amazed, said the car and vessel picked up "one heck of a tail wind" getting here!

Loving the car, too... made it worth the wait!

Congrats and enjoy your vehicle!
You obviously ordered better than I did.
I ordered mine a week before you ordered yours and only live a two hour drive from the Bayonne NJ car terminal.
Unfortunately, my car was produced in South Africa and if all goes well I'm looking at early March delivery.

Well, Boheme really got to NY on 2/15, two days behind its original schedule. I pick the car on at 5pm on Wednesday. That will make it 36 days from order to delivery. Fast, but Seekup41's order-to-delivery time was three days faster.
