Texas delivery: Anyone know what port?

My 330 is being painted today, and I am trying to start calculating my actual delivery date. Does anyone know what US port BMW's are delivered to for Texas final destinations? I hope to get an idea of which of the one or two most likely shipments my vehicle will be on.

Not absolutely sure, but I believe it goes to Charleston and then by truck inland.

Actually I just looked online and it said they are increasing through Port of Charleston, especially for the 11 southern state region but I am not positive for Texas.

Wow, Kurtv! Based on other posts I've seen, that sounds like record time from port to dealership. Do you know how long the boat trip took for yours?

Shipping time

I ordered my car on the 11th of August. My car left Bremerhaven on the 26th of August. It was scheduled to arrive in Charleston on Sept. 12 after stopping in New York, but was held up for a few days due to the huricane off the Carolinas so wasn't off-loaded until the 15th. It probably got to the processing center on the 16th or so.

I was out of town when the car arrived on the 20th so am only picking it up today.
