Why don't you try the board sponsors. You're going to have to call them or PM them. You are not likely to get a quote on these forums directly.

Mine was three weeks, 3 days. It depends on when the order goes in. And where you are located in U.S. We took delivery in Bay Area. Way faster than I expected for a custom order.

I spent a lot of time looking at both woods. Never had one like the one I ordered but I really liked it. Hope it holds up.

What did you pay for the mats? Are they BMW? Which ones.
