car is in the paint booth!

Just called BMW and the automated system says the car is in the paint booth and that it's expected to be completed by today. When do you think I'll be able to take delivery?

Just for word from my CA that the car is at the port (NJ). You think I'll be able to pick up the vehicle next week?
