2013 550i GT - Production Complete!

Just received word today that production is complete for my 2013 550i GT! Looks like we are now waiting for release to the carrier, can't wait to get behind the wheel of this vehicle.

TIMELINE (UPDATED ORIGINAL POST AS BENCHMARK DATES WERE HIT):
Order Documented 9/13/2012
Production Begins 9/17/2012
Production Ends 10/2/2012
Loaded on Ship 10/11/2012 or 10/12/2012
En Route to the U.S. 10/13/2012
Arrived at Port U.S. 11/6/2012
Finishing Touches 11/8/2012
At Your BMW Dealer 11/9/2012
Picked Up! 11/15/2012

*Notes, you can find many sources for tracking your vehicle, but my one piece of advice is to follow up with your dealer for the most up to date information on the delivery of your car. Crevier BMW (Brad Lindenstein) does a great job at keeping me informed and I found that he is a better resource than the information points on either BMW USA or the automated line for the progress of the build. It's great fun to order and track your vehicle, but man, the wait is agonizing. My new "beauty" is being shipped on NYK's Triton Leader, and if all goes well, the vehicle will be in the port on the date specified and in my garage by November 15th!

Specs:
  • 2013 550i xDrive Gran Turismo
  • Dk Graphite Metallic II
  • Black Dakota
  • ZCW - Cold Weather (yes I am in California)
  • ZDA - Driver Assistance Package
  • ZDB - Driver Assistance Plus
  • ZEC - Executive Package
  • ZMP - M Sport Package
  • Gloss Black Powercoated 19" M wheels

Woohoo!
