What's the break down??

If I know what week my car is beeing built how do I figure out when it will be at my dealer. What is the time frame from when the car gets built to when it gets on the ship and arrives at the port and then trucked to the dealer? The dealer told me 6 to 8 weeks and I'm on the east coast.
Does anyone have the formula?

I can't wait any longer!!!

My experience with past BMW's - my e90 is at the port awaiting a ship is. Takes a couple of days from being built to getting to the port. Then may wait there up to a week depending upon ship schedules. Takes about 14 days for the ship to get to NY port - where I assume MA cars would go. Probably a week to 10 days depending upon how busy the vehicle preparation center.
So about 6 weeks from build seems about right.

Got my production number an I checked it out on the BMW OC. The current status is "On Order". Is there a way to find out what week it is scheduled to be built?

In a Nutshell, My car was ordered on Jan 16, Built on Feb 3, Left Germany on the ship on Feb 13, Arrived in port at Charleston Last Tues, And was ready for pickup today..(In Athens Ga) I will get it tomorrow because I couldnt get over today, but I would say thats about an average East Coast timeline..
