It's just a little bit of torture just tracking that slow cargo ship... Oh well, it will be worth it in the end, that's for sure. Will post pics once I get her.

SoCal here.
I notice you ordered the 528. I was leaning towards 528 when I thought I was going to get a 2011. When it became more realistic to order a 2012 I decided against the 528, just because there were no reviews at all of the new 4 cylinder engine when i placed my order. Everything I have read since then seems very positive about the engine. Hope you enjoy.

I ordered a 528xi on Oct 10th. I didn't ask my dealer for the production number until Monday the 24th and checking on the My BMW site I found the car had already completed production and is ready to ship. Next I'll get the VIN and find out what ship the car is on. The dealer said it would take 2 months to get the car so I figured early December. Being on the east coast, now I think I should have the car mid November.

I'd figure about three days to get to port, anywhere from one to seven days to get on a ship and get underway, about 11-14 days to cross the pond and a few days to get from port to your dealership and get prepped.

Middle to end of Nov. would be my best guess.
