I've been reading along for quite some time, researching the F30 to death. I placed my order today for PCD. I guess I'll spend the next few months obsessing a tracking. Already logged into BMW and ready watch those status codes increment, (currently 111). I'm using my BMW Drive credit towards the purchase.

Ordered 5/9/2012

328i Sedan
Glacier Silver Metalic
Sport Line
Brushed Aluminum Trim
Highlighted trim Black Gloss
Premium Package
Leather Dakota Everest Grey/Black Highlight

Congrats! I'm less than a month away from taking delivery on my 335 and truth be told, it hasn't been an easy wait.

I followed this blog post and entered my production number in my BMW account. The post shows using a VIN, but you can track by production number also. To be fair, I guess the code wasn't actually on the BMW website, it was on the paperwork I received from the dealer.

How to follow a new BMW from order to shipping and to delivery

Congratulations and welcome! May I respectfully suggest you consider joining the BMW Car Club of America? Great people, discounts on parts and accessories, and rebates when you buy a new BMW (a minimum of $500). As a member you will be able to attend autocrosses, drivers' schools, and other social activities. Well worth it!

And may I compliment you on the choice of 6MT!!!! Way to keep the tradition alive!

Thanks for the tip. I am waiting for my 328i delivery. I don't know of any rebates when I bought. I received $2000 discount from dealer. I will register in BCCA.

Thanks. I did join the BMWCCA, but not soon enough to qualify for the rebate for this car. One of my neighbors has been to some of the autocrosses and told me they were a lot of fun.

Do you just have to be a member prior to purchasing the car? Or is there some other requirement?

This whole process is actually a test. My patience is really being tested!!
