You will probably be on a boat within the next 2-3 weeks.

My AW M-Sport was ordered on 8/29, started production on 9/12, finished production 9/21, went to the port on 9/24 and is still sitting there. A ship leaves for California on 10/6, so I'm hoping it makes it. I guess a two week wait for a ship is about right!

So, 38th week production shipped in 40th week. Mine was 39th week production so I guess it should be shipped in 41st week.

It takes longer than you would think to get on a boat. Unfortunately.

Mine took 7 days from arrival at the port until it was loaded. Judging by everyone's experiences posted here, my wait at the port was relatively short. I'd hazard a guess that 10 to 14 days of waiting at the port is normal... but I'm just basing that on what I've read here.

I'm on a ship already and have already docked on the boat's first stop in Sweden, yet BMWUSA.com still says 'Production Ends'. The site is always a few days behind. Call and pester your CA for a Vehicle Inquiry Report... that's the only way to get an up-to-the-minute status.

Yes, on a ship whose names starts with a "P" ( dont remember now) as of 10/10. Should be in NY/NJ port by 10/24.
