My 335i took 2 weeks from order to production (Apr 13-Apr 27) however that was on the time-delayed website. My estimated completion date keeps moving sooner however.

I have a production slot, and I just put down the deposit last friday. Production number received on Monday, so I really hope because they want to rush the 2014's out that they push my order through.

I really hope I get my VIN within 2 weeks of ordering then ...

No word yet. I am at the port awaiting a shipping vessel. Hopefully I will get on Tomorrow's ship (the Tombarra) but there's no way to know yet. Sometimes you dont know for sure if you got on a ship until a couple days after....fingers crossed!

Am I the only one who walked out of the dealer with production number in hand?

For those on the East Coast awaiting delivery, I believe the next two U.S.-bound vessels are the Tonsberg and the Integrity. Does anyone know if there are other possibilities?

First time leasing a BMW (though I've driven a few), and my first car in 5 years (living in Manhattan, I really couldn't justify owning one);and the waiting is killing me.

Btw, the late-in-the-model-year 6 series cars (last run of MY 2013) are getting MY 2014 changes. You don't suppose the same thing is happening with the 3 series, do you. (Would be icing on the cake to get the updated NAV.)

Mine is in Bremerhaven too, awaiting shipment. I believe it's scheduled to arrive on the 27th or 28th.

Btw, if your car was assembled in Germany (and not SA, which is more likely), I'm pretty sure that it will be travelling on the Faust--leaving Germany on the 18th and scheduled to arrive June 12th.

My completion date was yesterday (the 10th) so I'm hoping I can call my salesman and see what ship it'll get on

Where are your cars being produced? Mine was made in Regensburg and arrived at the port on the 7th. Yesterday it appeared as loaded on vessel.

It was on the WW site (http://sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSched...selSchedule.do) . But just to clarify, Faust leaving Germany, destined for California. For East Coast delivery, you're right about Undine and Turandot. I was looking for shipments to Port of Baltimore (where my car will be arriving)--the next two vessels heading to Baltimore are Tonsberg and Integrity.
