Here she is. My gloss black spoiler really disappears in pictures, but I LOVE the way it looks in person. Nice accent.

Here is my final time line:

04/26/14 - Ordered
04/30/14 - Production Started
05/08/14 - Production Finished
05/23/14 - On ship from South Africa (Heroic Ace)
06/17/14 - Ship docked in Bremerhaven
07/06/14 - Arrived at port
07/07/14 - VPC New Jersey
07/09/14 - Transported to dealer
07/10/14 - Arrived at dealer and picked up

Overall a pretty long wait, but it was to be expected as my dealer did say 10-12 weeks for SA builds (mine came at about 11 weeks).

2014 428i M-Sport

Ordered - 6/4/2014
Production started - 6/6/2014
Finished production - 6/14/2014
Loaded to the vessel - 7/5/2014
On its way to the West Coast... ETA to port - 7/30/2014

Question for all you fellow bimmer addicts! How long does the car usually takes from the time it arrives to US port till the dealer is ready to sell the car? The port my car will arrive is port Hueneme and the dealership is Steve Thomas BMW.
Thanks to all of you!

Well, this was a priority replacement for my '14, so I think they snagged an existing allocation (they had to change the configuration).

I ordered my BMW on 8/16 and it was documented the same day. It's awaiting production still with no production date ready.

I was told 6 weeks so I should have it by beginning of October but I'm hoping sooner.

Ordered my '15 335i sedan on 7/12 (Sat).
7/14 Went in to production
7/15 I had the VIN
7/18 was around when production was done
7/23 at the port waiting for a vessel
8/1 it was on a boat and I had it tracked in the English Channel between Rotterdam and London
8/15 it hit Brunswick, GA port (there was a stop at the Baltimore, MD port a couple of days before)
8/16 at noon, a truck had picked it up headed to Texas
8/18 in the late afternoon the car arrived at Classic BMW in Plano, TX
8/19 I took delivery of the car

37 days from start of production to final delivery. Not bad at all.

Hoping to get some pics by the weekend sometime!

I got a production number from my dealer and registered on the bmw website. The website basically says that there is nothing related to that number. According to my dealer I'm scheduled to begin production the 1st week of September. Is it normal for the bmw site to not have information this far back from production date? Order was placed August 3rd

I'll add what someone wrote in another thread

"Originally Posted by GOLFFRR View Post
for the best up to date info call BMW direct at 800-831-1117 when the voice comes on say "production state" then enter your production number or vin and it will give the current status of your vehicle. Or you can ask to speak to a rep.

This is the best and most accurate way to get your current status other then checking with your sales rep

the online (BMWUSA.com) is always delayed"
