Maybe this is the sign to wait for M4.. Even though I hate the front bumper look?
Man that sucks, I got Individual paint via Steve Thomas but I guess it is late in the production year...might just mean that allocations are dry?
What Individual build were you spec'ing out?

I had Le Mans blue ext with individual Platinum interior. The trim I wanted piano black which I was told by a local dealer they could buy/install separately. Steve Thomas said no, but I would have settled for burl walnut for their price. Nevertheless now I'm just gonna shop around for used for the same config without interior I want (ZCP, ZPP, apps, premium sound, moonroof).

Dealer up here wanted way too much profit and the quotes were hideous, pretty sure lining their pockets. Too many rich in the bay.

My dealer here had a Lemans Blue coupe with the bamboo interior with the alumium trim. I thought it was a great combo. The Lemans blue really accents the car an looks great with the zcp wheels

Just got the confirmation - My Car is built.

time line was as follows

4/1 order placed with dealer

4/3 111 - Order accepted by AG

4/11 112 Scheduled for Production Pack - scheduled for week of May 18

4/24 150 Production started

4/30 151 Entry Body Shop

5/2 152 Entry Paint Shop

5/3 153 Entry Assembly

5/3 154 Assembly

5/3 155 Assembly finish/Quality Check

Took one full month from time the order was accepted to the date of production. About 2 weeks ahead of when I expected. Now lets see how long it sits on the docks.

So, cwg, I am on my way now also....just received notice today that car was built.

A comparison timeline:

15 April: placed order
19 April: PCD date confirmed (28 June)
25 April: "production begins, estimated completion date 6 May"
3 May: in body shop
4 May: in paint shop
7 May: "your vehicle is being transported to the port of exit"

I'm pretty impressed with how quickly that all went. Of course - from the other threads in this forum - I'm braced for the next part.....

Interesting, your build took just over two weeks from time of order and mine took a month. I wonder why that is. Maybe your dealer had an earlier allocation. What is your build?

Yeah I think my dealer had an allocation and I was kinda on their ass to rush it. My build is AW coupe, 6MT, Anthracite & Black Cloth/Leather, Competition Package, & Premium Package.

Just got an email from my CA - my car was loaded onto the Sagittarious Leader yesterday. It got to the docks on 5/8 and in the ship the very next day!!! I was expecting at least a week wait. I wonder if that is a record for shortest time ever on the docs. The ship now goes to Port Hueneme CA, expected to arive 6/7/13. Anyone else on board?

Been tracking Sagittarius Leader. She made it through the English Channel and is now sailing the Celtic Sea off the coast of France headed to the Panama Canal about 4300 miles to go till she gets there. Expect she wii be out of range of this tracking site in 24 hours or less
