I'm new to this forum. Nice to see a forum for those who are suffering like me. I placed the order a month ago and have a june 14 production date. Just called and its at status 150. This wait is brutal. Don't know if I will make it! Any advice?

Hey same here.. I placed about a month ago and also got the 6/14 date.
Does the production date mean thats when the build starts? Or finishes?

Any idea when we should expect to get the car?

Also how did you find out your status? Is there a way to get that off the bmw website? I couldn't find it under owners cirlce.

thanks and congrats.

I don't think the website is all that usefull. It also isn't very up to date. Call this number: 800-831-1117 ext 3.

They will ask your production number. Very helpfull. I was told that the production date is the "estimated" date of completion. I was told my car started production on 6/4 and it would take about a week to get to status 160.

Go to this link for good info on status codes. ( i didn't know what they were):

http://www.bmw330ci.com/330ci_orderguide.htm

I'm in CA, and was told probably would be at the dealer first or second week in August. I believe it would be sooner if you are on the east coast(?)

The wait is killing me too.

I was status 151 on 5/31 and as of last Friday it was 190. I thought that the progress would make me feel better, now I think it's worse now that I know it's built and someplace other than here!

SWEEET

Just checked the webite and it shows that the car is waiting for transport. I guess that is probably status 160. I will call later today to find out. :D :thumb:

Does anyone know the boat schedule? I've been trying to get onto the Wallenius Wilhemsen site, but can't seem to get though to the schedule page.:banghead:

I had a prod date of 6/7 and my car was shipped on 6/14! It should be here by 6/26! I can't wait! :banghead: I'm getting a steel blue 330 cabrio black soft top with sp and pp. :D

That link is rarely up for me.. but if you look at the spreadsheet the next boats scheduled to leave are:

AIDA Jun-19 arriving at New York July-2
Atlantic Concert Jun-22 arriving at New York July-9
Hudson Leader Jun-30 arriving at New York July-12

The wait is killing me!

To make the wait even more painful, I took my (current) car into the delaership today to have the radio looked at. The radio died. I now have a hole in my dash and have no tunes for 2 to 4 weeks.:confused:
