Sounds sweet. I opted for PCD and am scheduled to pick it up on 5/3. Didn't realize that this would delay the process by a couple of weeks. In any event, I will be driving form SC to PA after I leave PCD and so will have plenty of time to get to know the car. The break in period will be very difficult to follow I am sure.

How many miles did the odometer have on it when you picked it up?

Dealer says he expects ours to arrive in Michigan next week.

We ordered on March 5. Production started on March 15 and finished on the 22nd. Car was shipped on March 28 and arrived in Baltimore on April 8.

Paddle shifters yes and we specified summer tires for us( our winters from the coupe we traded fit) that are staggered sizes.

Does the 2014 manual have the same break-in period and limitations as the 2013 (i.e., don't exceed 4,500 RPMs or 100MPH for first 1,200 miles)?

I finally began production. With an estimated finish date of 4/17, any educated guesses as to when I can begin to look for delivery to the NYC area?

Probably 3-4weeks from your production finish date... depends on what ship it gets on.

You east-coasters are lucky you don't have to wait for transporting across the US!!

If you check your car on the BMW USA site everything should show as you ordered it. Mine now shows the image and all the options i selected.

I think hitting the refresh button makes them build it faster.

I also opted for PCD. Will be interested in what you think of it. Worth the extra wait etc?

I know the feeling. Mine was completed on 4/5, and has been sitting at the port for at least a week also. I'm assuming we'll be on the same ship, since they're both coming to Long Island. All my CA has to say about it that it will be here some time in May.

This is so painful. I'm at Status 193 (Arrived at Port of Exit).... but the www.2wglobal.com site doesn't have my vin listed yet. How do you people stand the suspense?

I was a wreck waiting for my car to get picked up at port and kept checking the 2wglobal site over and over. And this was when the 2014s were not showing up properly on bmwusa either.

In any event, it is quite possible that your car is already on another boat even if the bmwusa site is not updated (that happened to me). And if the car is on a kline ship (like mine) it will not show up on 2wglobal. So - just try an be patient (I know - it is impossible) and it is quite possible that your car is already making its way through the English channel.
