Hmm... Would have to search but as I recall the total production time on the M3 was only a couple of days. If your is not finished already, it will be shortly!

Cars only take a few days to complete. I think from Status 151 to 155 takes 4 days.

The assembly line moves like clockwork, so as long as parts are available and your build is not Individual, the production moves along without any issues. Your build looks pretty run-of-the-mill production.

Are you looking online? The website is always behind. In fact for my car it still said awaiting transport (in Germany) the day I took delivery...

Yes. Ask your CA. They get real time updates on status that are accurate.

Ok, just did that. Apparently it's being "transported to the port of exit".

Thanks for your help!
