At last, I found out that my car is on Rigoletto, expected to arrive in NY on 04/11 (damn, this ship is fast, it’s taking just 8 days from Bremenhaven to NY). After all, it looks that I’ll be able to pick it up on 04/16 as, amazingly, my dealer predicted more than 2 months ago!

Ripsnort, you're absolutely right, the clock is really moving lower than ever now. I cannot focus on anything, at work or elsewhere.
Webguy330i, it’s freaking amazing. I was initially scheduled for week11 but the sales guy was so confident that it would make it for 04/16 (when my current car’s lease ends) that he pushed my car for week 12.

I have everything arranged; the certified check for the down payment, the loan is approved (the dealer got me 5.5/60mo; I had my own 5.9/60mo but they beat it), I spoke with the insurance company, I’ll be ordering V1 this weekend…

Pentagon Federal Credit Union has a 4.9% apr, that's what I used to finance mine last friday (60 months also).

I'm in California, I don't work for them, they are just a Credit Union, I am not sure what their requiremnts are to join, since my wife was a member before I met her...

unleashHell, I guess working for the Pentagon has it perks...:thumb:
Ripsnort, glad to hear you have ties to NJ. Speaking of GS, it's too crowded, damn it!:mad:

Ordered my 330Ci Tpz Blue, PP, SP, CWP, Xenons, Step on 2/23/02 and it's also on the Rigoletto. I'll have it a month ahead of the dealer guaranteed delivery date of May 15.:thumb:
I ordered my car on the exact same day, 2/23/02. But getting my car... most likely around mid-may....

:p :cry: :p

Hi Low, I couldn't have said it better!:thumb:
Bimmee, why mid May? In the other thread you said the your car is awaiting transport so it's roughly about a week behind mine. IMO, you should get your car sometime between 20-30 April.

Dude that *is* amazing, never have I heard of an accurate timeline for car delivery from a dealer! Congrats!
My car actually got in a little few days earlier than my dealer predicted. He initially thought 3/11, but I got it 3/7. It was definitely a nice surprise :thumb:

Its awaiting transport so I assume its not even at the port yet. And from reading other threads, a car can be stucked at the port as long as 2 weeks before it actually gets on a ship. And it takes about 2 weeks from Munich to NJ. Another week from NJ to Hawaii...... :bawling: :bawling: :bawling:

My salesman actually told me delivery should be in early/mid June. Oh well, hes a different animal, so I decided not to listen to anything out of his mouth....

Yup, too far, so far...
Well your car goes to Port Hueneme south of LA and then to Long Beach to get on a Matson ship here. Is it on a boat now? My car took over 10 days from Port Hueneme to get out of VPC and then on a Matson ship, and then another 5 days to get here.

What did you order, who was your salesperson?

Didnt notice your location.....

OMG, that pic looks very similar to what I see out the window.... hehehe..

I dont think its on the boat yet, I called BMWNA and they said its still status 155, but the site says Awaiting Transport. :dunno:
So how long from Munich to Port Hueneme?

I ordered a 325CI on 2/23, his name is giancalo.

If you work downtown you probably recognize it.

I had the schedule memorized, 28 days from Bremmerhaven (the port) to Port Hueneme. 1 or 2 days to get to VPC. My car was at the VPC for a week, don't know why as there was no damage. Then it is trucked to Long Beach, you can go to the Matson website but I believe there are only 3 sailings a week from Long Beach to here. My car sat at Long Beach for 5 days, BMW does not reserve spots ahead of time. Total time for me from Bremmerhaven to getting the keys was about 6 weeks. Have patience.:angel:
