That'd be cool. I might meet the ship there as it pulls it. That would be a great story...

Looks like I'm 150 also. Scheduled to finish on 7/5/12!

Just to confirm, is this production date consistent with a MY 2013 328i?

You mean is it a 2013 MY? Look at the 10th digit in the VIN if it's a D then it is a 2013 MY.

Jon, my car is scheduled for completion July 4th and the MV Tomar has a ETD of July 14. Is that usually enough time for the car to make it on before the Tomar departs?

My CA suggested that since I went to 150 so fast that I'm probably being built in Germany. Can anyone support this theory? She's gonna call me when she gets a VIN.

Digit 11 of your VIN is the plant code:

L = Spartanburg
A = Munich
B&D = Digolfing
E = Regensburg
N = South Africa

Also look at the NA Code of your Vehicle Inquiry from your CA:

133N = 328i Germany
1330 = 328i SULEV
133P = 328i South Africa
133Q = 335i Germany
133T = 335i South Africa

133N, so Germany it is.

Wow, when I check "My BMW" my car is now showing in production. Crazy. I didn't think I would go into production till early August... at this rate I might HAVE the car by early August.

Hmmm... gonna have to sell my trusty A4 sooner than I thought.

Mine only has 50K miles on it and is pretty much loaded. I'm hoping I can get $10,000. Audis have great resale here in winter wonderland.

Dealer offered me $8500 so I imagine I can get at least $1000 over that.

I need to get a quote from the dealer. Probably can do better at CarMax.

I refuse to get the window fixed to sell. Wonder how the dealer will take that?

I just called in and the automated system reports that my vehicle will be completed by July 5th. At least it won't be getting the final touches on a Friday.

Anyone have any idea, based on a July 5th completion date when the vehicle would likely see delivery to Colorado?

I'd like to know the answer to this also, I'm finished the same day. My code was 133N, Germany... so I'm thinking/hoping 4 weeks post-completion?

The automated system did not give me a code, how do you acquire it? Four weeks might be a bit optimistic, I believe typically it takes 6-8 weeks from completion time to customer delivery in my part of the US.
