Here is my timeline:
I ordered and gave a deposit on August 6th, 2012, just for frame of reference.
August 6th - Status 112 - Received production number
August 17th - Status 150 - Production Started
August 27th - Status 155 - Production Finished
August 29th - Status 182 - Released to Carrier
August 29th - Status 193 - Arrived at Port of Exit (Bremerhaven)
Sept. 7th - Status 195 - Shipped from Port of Exit (K-Line, Euphrates Highway)
After this, BMW cannot track your car.... your CA would have the most up to date info. You can also track your ship yourself.
Sept. 18th - Status 196 - Arrived at Brunwicks, GA VDC
Sept. 20th - Status ??? - Ready to hang myself, my family thinks I have a problem... I am looking at car porn wayyyy too much.
