Sure, no problem.

I placed my order with deposit on 10/2-- At this point I got my order sheet with production # etc. I was a status 111.

On Monday 10/5- I was at a status 112(scheduled for production) I called my CA and he said my car would be built the following week (week 42)

On Tuesday 10/6- My car began production (body shop?) and was at a status 150

Wednesday 10/7- I was at status 151 (per BMW 800# "your vehicle is scheduled for production with an estimated completion date of 10/13)

Thursday 10/8- didnt find out my status, but 800# said the same thing- but BMW NA rep said it is in the paint shop.

Friday 10/9- 800# said same thing, but BMW NA rep said car was out of paint shop.

Saturday/Sunday- 800# said "car is in paint shop with estimated completion date of 10/13.

Monday 10/12- BMW NA rep said car was in "Assembly" - 800# still said paint shop.

Tuesday 10/13- CA emailed me a screen shot, showing my car was produced, and "dispatched from Ag" which is status 190. 800# still said in paint shop. BMW NA rep said car was on the way to port.

Wednesday 10/14- BMW NA rep told me car arrived at port early that day. My CA said theres a good chance it would leave pretty soon since it was marked as a priority 1 sold car. I highly doubt it though. I'm sure she'll sit there till next week's ship leaves. I believe today there are 2 ships leaving--no other ships leave for the U.S until 10/21-- Kline, then 10/22, and 10/24 are WW ships.

The 800# "estimated time" seemed to be right on during the process. Production stage took a week (including the weekend) and car left factory same day it was produced. Arrived at port in 1 day.

Hope that helps.
