vehicle being transported to port of exit

As the title suggests, I'm getting close to aquiring my 435!

I gotta tell you, there are a lot of people griping about how long it takes for their car to be built. Those people had December builds, a month that the Germans take an extended vacation/holiday.

I had a January build. Here it is the 9th of the month, and the thing is complete.....get on a ship, travel the waterways between Germany and NY, clear customs, get on a transporter and arrive at the dealership. Anyone have an idea how it generally takes from port of exit to into my hands?

at least there's some good progress with your 4 series, thankfully no delays, hopefully none pop up.

what do you currently drive?

2011 C300, This will definately be a step (or 2 or 3) up!

The car is still 4-6 weeks out, per my dealer. It's a long wait but, others living in different parts of the world have it worse. Germany to New York isn't the longest of travels.

How long ago did you put your order in? Congrats on almost having your Bimmer in hand though. Make sure to post pics when it comes in. What color did you get?

Ordered Dec 11 for January allocated build

EBII. I think it's one of the best looking colors of any car manufacturer. Flashy, extroverted, yet classy.

The boat trip from Germany to NY/NJ is 14-15 days. It's then a couple of days at the VDC and the trip to your dealer. My 435 should be completing production today, and then it's on its way to NY as well.

Just a heads up, my car has been built and waiting for over a week at the port.

Wow, this is going to be a big step up, a whole new world for you.
are you trading in your C300 at the dealer or selling it privately?

Lease matures end of May. It has negative equity so I can't sell it. I'll be paying double payments for a couple months but I couldn't wait to get in this 435. I have still not seen one on the road (any 4 series), seen plenty of 991 Carerra's though.
