Just found out my 428i is on a boat and on its way to CA. I am so... excited. It sat at port 2 weeks after production waiting for a ship, so I am glad to see the ride to CA get started.
I will try my very best to remain calm during shipment. The upcoming holidays will be a good distraction.
From looking at the other forums I have come up with the following range of time for west coast delivery:
Time at sea: 22 to 26 days
Time at VPC: 1 to 3 days
Transport to dealership: 1 to 2 days
Dealer prep: 1 to 2 days
So I am looking at anywhere from 25 to 32 days before I can pick up my new ride.
I am going to plan on 32 days (~ arrival Jan 8). Anything earlier will be a bonus and anything later will probably be due to the holidays.
