Just ordered my 335 M Sport yesterday

As the title says, I just ordered my first BMW, a 335 Sedan M Sport, yesterday(2/16/2013). I got it from Fields BMW of Winter Park, FL.

Configuration:

M Sport
Estoril Blue
Dakota Coral Red Leather
Driver Assistance Package
Dynamic Handling Package
Premium Package
403M Wheels with Performance Summer Tires
Aluminum Hexagon/Black high-gloss trim
Sport Auto Trans. with paddle shifters
Harman Kardon Sound
BMW Connect w/Enhanced Bluetooth & USB

Salesman(Hugh) said that it would start production on week 10 (March 3rd). He is expecting delivery around the first week of April.

All in all, great car, can't wait to get it!

-Jeff

Currently deciding which car to get rid of to make room for this one. My wife currently drives a 2007 Prius Touring, and I am driving a 2010 Prius. I am trying to get her to shift into my car so we can sell her old one, but she likes her red better than my blue. Either way, I will be happy.

Great news! My "Track Your BMW" status just changed to "Production Begins"!!! The top image used to represent the car is exactly right, including the 403M wheels.

I also just called the 1800 number, and it confirmed that my car is in production, and the estimated completion date is March 5th.

From the description, the interior trim is incorrect(does not list the trim, lists all 3 accents under the heading "M Sport Line"). Also, does not mention the 403M wheels. Besides those issues, the description is correct.

My salesman told me that it was slated to start in week 10, which he and I thought was the week starting on March 3rd. Instead, the site now shows that it is starting production today, and I am curious if this is means it is really being built this week, or if it is normal to show this up to a week before it actually begins being built.

Anybody have any insight as to this? My salesman is on vacation and won't be back until Tuesday or Wednesday, so I will certainly call him then to see what he says.

On a side-note, I also got pre-approved today from my credit union(navy federal c.u.), so I am all set!

You just went status 150. Production has not started yet. What this is equivalent to is pulling a kit of parts to make your car. You can no longer make changes to your order. Status 151 (Body shop started) is the actual start of production. In my case there was 8 days between status 150 and status 151, but that varies. But you are closer now!

Just called the 800 number...car is in the paint shop and the expected production completion of march 4th(today)!!!!

So it appears as though it will finish a day early, since it originally said the 5th was going to the be the completion date.

Car is done! 800 number reports, "Vehicle is being transported to the port of exit". Now on to the next phase...and then on a boat. Will post when I know what boat or when the status changes again.

I guess you are going to beat me, the 800 number just told me that mine is in the paint shop, but with a completion date of today. Go figure.

I guess they mean finish with the painting today?

I wondered the same thing, as I went through that yesterday. Actually, when they say estimated completion date, they don't mean for the paint job, they mean the entire car. I knew this was true when I called it again this morning and the car was already on its way to the port. Your car will be done today and on a train headed for port most likely by tonight. Check again tomorrow morning.

Also, the online tool just now shows that my vehicle is done, so it took until around noon on the day after production completion to show up on the website as "Production Ends".

All in all, yes, my car is roughly 24 hours ahead of yours. I don't know about the shipping, but I can assume there is a good chance we might be riding the same boat.

the phone and the website may be 48 hours behind the actual status.

mine completed on 27th but the website didn't flip the status until today.
now the 800 says mine is "released to the carrier and waiting to be transported"

I ordered my 335xi m sport on 2/18/13 from Westchester BMW in NY

Estoril blue
Dakota red coral leather seats
Hex trim/ black high gloss
Heated seats
Technology package
Manual 6 speed
Mixed tires

When I ordered the car I didn't know that the xdrive deletes the m suspension option. By the time I realized that, it was too late for me to order it with the DHP...I'm not too happy with my order. Smh

Spot on, Jeff. Mine changed today and is on its way to port of exit. Now the real tracking fun begins! If we are on same boat, mine should reach Baltimore before your's hits Brunswick?, and I'll catch up that day lost. The race is on!

Jeff and Pally, if we get on a ship in the next couple of days it looks like we might be on the "Courage" leaving Bimmerheaven on the 10th according to the ARC departure schedules. If so, looks like Pally and my cars will hit Baltimore around 25th of March and Jeff's at Brunswick around the 29th. The next ship I see that fits would be the "Honor" almost a couple of weeks later.
