I have concluded that most of the time is spent idle and waiting for the next transport, probably sitting in a lot somewhere. It didn't seem very efficient to me, anyway.

You're welcome. As usual your experience may differ from mine, so you may be pleasantly surprised. But you know what they say, a pessimist's surprises are always pleasant ones!

328i Lux/silver/black
03/13/12 - Ordered
03/27/12 - Production started
04/04/12 - Finished production
04/05/12 - Released to carrier
04/07/12 - Transported to port of exit
04/09/12 - In port, waiting for a Ship
04/18/12 - Left Port for US Ship: Florida HIGHWAY
05/02/12 - Arrived US Port: BRUNSWICK, GA
05/04/12 - Finishing touches
05/12/12 - Shipped to Dealership
05/15/12 – Arrives at Dealership, Little Rock, AR
05/17/12 - Ready for delivery Little Rock, AR

It has been 9 weeks today. I Was told about 6 weeks to get the car, boy that was a very, very bad guess by my CA.

So if you order a 328I (east coast drop off), I would look for it to take about 2 months +/- a week. That way if it gets in sooner great, but if more then 9 weeks that's bad.

So now that the dealer system shows the car is shipped from the factory how realistic are my estimates in this post? Any guidelines from those who have received their vehicles? Thank you.

Looks to me like it's is almost all down to

The boat.

The pass through customs.

Local shipping distance and method.

Mine was one month 3 days order to driving it, but then the shipping was less far than most of you / USA posters.

It is worth the wait though!

How did you figure out what the next ship(s) were going to be? My car is due to finish production on May 31, and I'm taking delivery in Ohio. I'd like to check and see what the earliest ship I could catch might be.

Use this site and check ships from Bremerhaven, Germany to (I think for you) Brunswick, Georgia.

http://sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSchedules/countryList.do

I see ships on May 31st, June 6, 7 and 15.

Thanks! New York or Baltimore would both be closer to me than Georgia so I'm guessing it will arrive in one of those ports. It looks like a lot of the boats stop at New York, then Baltimore, and then some also go to Georgia so the same dates you mention apply to a Baltimore delivery. It looks like fewer ships are going to New York than Baltimore. Of course, that lists all ships, who knows out of those will actually be carrying BMWs. Hopefully I can make June 6th or 7th.

From Germany to California in just 26 days?? That boat must have been hauling ass! Is that amount of time normal? I thought it took 21 days (3 weeks) just to get to the east coast of the US!

And 5 days from arrival in port to being discharged from the VPC is pretty quick, too, no?

Great to hear!

It's been a long 10 weeks since I initially placed my order but finally made it on board the Figaro (left Bremerhaven 7/1 due to arrive at Port Hueneme 7/25). Verified the vehicle was on board via W&W tracking: https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage. BMWUSA is still at status 193 (At port awaiting shipping vessel). Looks like the total time from order placement to delivery will be around 14 weeks: My Timeline

Your car was sitting at the port waiting to board a ship for 10 weeks?
