That is pretty long, but at least you know it's literally on a boat on the way to port. You should be tracking it on MarineTraffic.com. Btw, which dealership made you wait this long, curious.

I had the same experience as you did with production timing, pretty instant. I made certain the dealer put in writing my car would go into production immediately after I ordered/placed a deposit and would provide me a production number same day. He kept his end of the bargain.

The 800 number is about 24 hours behind actual status of our cars if you didn't know. The website, forget about it, it's WAY behind on actual status.

Wait sucks, but I'm thinking getting it will be that much sweeter.

really... I actually didn't know that. I'm going to call right now. haha I'm trying my best distract myself from NOT looking up how to track the car everyday, and kind of just wait for the dealer to call me lol.

I did the same when I ordered -- Got my production number next day.

Impossible to stay away from wanting to "know". I don't call the CA, but I do call the 800 every morning when I know it's technically updated its system.

If you've read the Class of 2013 thread, feel bad for the guy who picked up his car and on the way home (65 miles in) oil leaked and splattered all over his engine bay. Reminds me to check my oil cap before I drove off, and while I'm at it I'lll bring my torque wrench and check the lugs as well.

westchester BMW ... but its really only been 8 weeks so probably 9 weeks total.. I ordered mid september so they had no allocations left for sept reason my wait seems so long is i ordered the car then had to re-order it from another dealership (long story behind that ) the car should be in atlantic ocean right now because it stopped communicating after it made its way out of the celtic sea

Cool, was just curious which dealership. As long as the car is coming soon, it's all that matters now.

So you're set on the SUPER GT it seems, if you're considering that level of exhaust (cost wise), any reason you wouldn't go for a valvetronic exhaust? They are about $300 ish more than what you're getting.

IPE for example sells their axle back Valvetronic exhaust for $3,000. I think Super GT is about $2,700. Then of course you have to add tax and shipping to either one.

Damn lucky, most people are waiting 2 weeks at the docks before their car makes onto a boat. Your car just made the cut, nice!
