I just called. Spoke to Harry who couldn't have been more helpful. Mine's still waiting dispatch to the dealer though, no change since Tuesday when I last called.

Hi mate, are you sure?? It was 'Departed Plant' when I phoned later in the day today as well. I thought that meant it was on its way to Bremerhaven to get on a boat, but not on a boat yet?!

Mine was also BW47 and is now at my Dealer going through its PDI !!

IMO ...You should have it latest by the 17th ...!!

I hope your rite but I have resigned myself to being happy if I get it before I return to work on the 7th Jan. Mine was one of those "to good to be true" deals that I think fell through for some of the guys on here so just getting the car is a result.

3rd time lucky with BMW CS.

Car status is "pre eu port exit" or something like that. Apparently means its on its way to be shipped to the UK. Delivery date is still showing on their system as the 31st but the chap reckons give it 48 hours and it will change to an earlier date.

Mine has been at "departed plant" for at least 2 days now, hoping it will catch a ship early next week

Not sure if you guys know, but you can lookup your car's VIN on e.g. bmwvin.com and it will give you all the details about the car, including production date (day), and all the standard spec and options the car has. Made for some interesting reading; though a bit anxious when checking the spec was correct for the first time!

I saw my car today!

I went to the dealer to sign the paperwork and it was just being offloaded from the transporter!

Pickup arranged for next Friday at 9:30am.

Garage List
Interesting, for me it was:
- 12/Mar placed order
- 15/May car produced (according to bmwvin)
- 26/Jun arrived at dealership.

So that's six weeks from rolling off the line to getting to the dealership

Excellent Do you know what your production date was? Just wondering when mine is likely to arrive at the dealer

Out of interest just checked mine and production date : 23/10/2012.
Drove the car on 16/11/2012.
So three weeks to dealership +2 days and away.

2 weeks from build to your dealers, thats not right surely. They must have speeded up a lot.

I think 2 weeks is about normal, it only takes max 4 days on the ship, 2-3 days to dealer when arrived in the UK (unless there's any delay); so that still leaves a week for it to get to port and wait to get on a boat in Germany. Anything else is a delay waiting at port for a ship I guess? Usually the BMW dealer delivery weeks are 3 weeks from build to dealer, but they told me the other day they usually add another week on to manage expectations...

My BW48 car arrived at the dealership today (week 49!) and has been assigned a Reg No.
I'll get it on 22/12 as I have no time until then.
Now I have to go through the hassle of getting Insurance.
Strange, I don't feel any excitement.

7 days free insurance? Very quick from build to delivery :/

The 7 days insurance isn't exactly hassle free, they still ask you 1001 questions and want to sell you the annual policy. I arranged mine today.
