From the time you hit status 150 (Production Started), expect about 7-9 working days for the car to "complete" production, from there, the other black hole of "your car has been assigned to logistic's carrier" starts - typically it is anywhere from 2-5 days to hit the port from manufacturing in Munich, in most cases you miss the boat that is already in port and have to wait until the following Tues/Wed for the next boat to leave (for vehicles bound to NY). If you know what port your car is coming into, go you can go to the Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics site (ocean carrier and is different from the plant to port company ) and search by port, see the exit date from Beemer Heaven (Bremerhaven) and arrival date into your nearest port which is NY - add anywhere from 1-7 days from port to dealer, a day at the dealer and magically some grueling 8 weeks later (for Munich builds), you have a nice new car and forget all the BS of ordering/BMW screwing with you.

The above 2 sites have great/detailed info and spelled out much better than the Cliff notes above. If your car is being manufactured in SA, ahhhh, well... make that 10-12 weeks later and you have a nice new car. Also, the website lags about 24-48 hours over the 800# which itself is off by 12-18 hours. If you call it, best to do so after 3pm EST as the Munich computers update +/- 3 hours from 3pm EST (from my experiences). Good luck and don't get frustrated... besides you are in great company with all of us overly anxious past/present/future orderers.

FWIW:
Order 2/19
Build Started: 2/27
Production Ended: 3/8
At Port: 3/12 (missed the 3/12 boat by that much )
Loaded on Asian King: 3/21
Currently in Belgium: 3/25
Due in NY: 3/4
Will be at the dealer with coffee in hand for delivery: 4/9

FEE - I know there was a systems issue shocker I know but if you have your VIN, go to http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp select "Track and trace my cargo", enter the VIN# in the Cargo ID box. If it is on a boat, and it very well may be, you can see the who/where/when info.

Good luck!

Yeah, I've been checking the track and trace on the W&W website. I've actually cut back from checking every hour to about every few hours, lol. 800# still says being transported to the port of exit. I'll be happy when it changes to awaiting vessel or anything else, as long as I don't have to hear her tell me it's still being transported to the port of exit! I'm being patient though...at least I'm trying to be.

Checking every hour? WOW, you are patient. I had cut back to every 20 minutes while mine was in the same status and thought I was good

Now I just get to watch the boat, sitting at whatever port, or bobbing along on the ocean and quietly, to myself, scream GO FASTER YOU SOB!

For the VIN, you can either call the BMW 800# (give them your Production ID# and they can look it up) or the dealer who went through (Tulley/IRA? Not sure which one you used) and they can provide it to you.

Good luck and let me know how you made out.

Ok, nvm they included the apps for the 2013 MY. Back the it used to be separate, the dealership cannot just retrofit the apps.

Your safe. More importantly, Enjoy your car

  • Tech package

I've been talking with Rossifumi on here, as I think his 3, with the the 20" HRE P44SC's, looks perfect and is exactly how I want mine to look. So soon I'll be in touch with the individuals he has recommended to me and hopefully place my order in the coming weeks

Other than that...I'll probably add the M-spoiler that will be painted to match (the non-carbon one), sport pedals, and black kidney grills at the time i pick up the car... with the springs, BBK and m-exhaust (or another type) shortly there after.

So needless to say i'm excited and the wait will be the death of me...

Any recommendations on the type of finish on the wheels (i like Rossifumi's honestly)?

How about exhaust recommendations?
GT HAUS dual side 102mm GTC is my option at the end of the year. Great sound and nice performance.

Timing really varies.

Expect maybe 5-10 days to go from Munich to Bremmerhaven. Then a few days to get on a boat. Then obviously the trip east could vary based on what shipping line and what ports the vessel stops at along the way. I'd say you are anywhere from 4-6 weeks away.

Until you are loaded onto a boat you can't really track via VIN. I found the 800# not very accurate. Once on a boat, assuming it's the W&W lines you can track via their track my cargo page.

My Munich built 335i finished production on 2/22 and wasn't in my garage until last night (4/3).

Oh and this is assuming a German build. I have no clue how long a SA build takes, just that it is much longer.
