2012 X5 50i  [0.00]
My 335i is a South African build. I am use to tracking my cars when they are built but I could get no ship info fromt he various websites used to track maritime shipments.

I do remember that the car sat at the port for over 3 weeks. I was told at the time that all shipments went to bremerhaven first to pick up more cars but I do not think that is true.

Anyway, I was unable to follow the car after it was built. Simply waited for the call from my dealer.

As for quality, there is nothing I have seen, felt or experienced that would lead me to believe the SA cars like mine are anydifferent to their German built counterparts.

Still on the original HPFP
