Mein Auto: 335 luxury line
Finally order my Sapphire Black Luxury Line 335 xdrive today, now what?

After months of lurking and compulsively building sample 335s on bmwusa.com.. finally buckled down and custom built/ordered a car. Decided on:

335i xdrive
Luxury Line
Sapphire Black exterior/Saddle Brown interior/Anthracite Wood Trim

Premium Package, Navigation, Heated Seats, HK Sound System, Back Up Camera, Park Distance Control

I'm assuming it's going to look something like these pictures (only automatic transmission):












The question is... what now? What did you guys do during your 6 week(!!) wait for your new car?

track it through the factory, to the port, over the ocean, to the dealer.

First , congrats on your new Bimmer. Sign up for Marine Traffic. It's a great way to track your BMW across the Atlantic. Find out which ship it's on, & plug it into the Marine Traffic site. Post updates on Bimmerfest, & very likely You will have fellow 'Festers on the same ship & production schedule

Congrats! I ordered almost the exact same build a month ago today. This board has been incredible, both for educating me before purchase and the details of tracking my order. Frankly, without this board I'd go insane with anticipation. It's the only thing that keeps me from calling the 800 number for updates 10 times a day (which I know is pointless, but can't help it). My car is built and at the port waiting for a vessel. Did not make one last week, so I'm hoping for the one leaving on Tuesday. I'm now spending my time reading everything I can about what to expect when taking delivery and taking care of it (looking at stuff like clear bra, as well as general detailing info). Congrats again and enjoy the build process. It's tough at times, but its actually kind of fun. All part of the experience!

Wait, patiently.
6 weeks? You are lucky! My CA told me it's a 12 week waiting. I hope he was wrong.

But, I think I'll be happy with my SB/Coral red instead.

The only thing left to do is switch it to ED and then plan a european vacation around it.
