Mein Auto: 2013 328i XDrive
So I'm in Vegas for the long weekend and I saw a new 328 taxi. I had to a double take. Only wish I had gotten the camera out to take a pic. I wonder how long the had to wait for their delivery?

My car finished production 10/05 too! Now I'm getting a message saying something like:

"Your car has finished production and is now waiting to be released to the carrier"

What're you getting?

Also live in Weston, there is one F30 Luxury across the street from my house.
I notice Pines BMW has a lot of 328i's and not one 335i.

Yeap 335i are rare. Still have not seen one of the street here in NVA. Only 328i and even those are far and few in between.

26 days on the boat then typically a day to vpc. 3-5 days possibly at vpc then to dealer and then final prep. 45 is the long estimate so you don't pester starting on the 14th when it docks

Our 335i Sportline arrived at the dealer yesterday. We're picking it up tomorrow so there will be one more 335i on the road in NVA.

That would explain the 45 days your CA estimated - from what I've read, they hold your car at the port of exit in SA until they have enough to put on a ship, which then gets transported to Germany and then transferred onto another ship headed to the US.
