How many of you guys cars were made in the South Africa plant?

This post is for USA people only because I know a lot of the European's BMW's come from SA. But I just got an E90 that took forever. It sat at the port for 3 weeks and apparently it was because it was built in South Africa. Apparently it takes a while to fill a vessel thats coming to the states because they dont build that many cars for USA. Just curious how many other cars on here were built in SA. Apparently the SA plant has a better quality record than the german plant as well.

Thanks for posting. My car right now is sitting at some port in SA for 2 weeks and from what you said it will be there another week. How long did it take once it got on the ship to reach you?

At least our cars are getting some sun on them not cold or snowing or rain.

.

Mine was was awaiting transport in early december and I just now got it!

I never tracked it because it was hard to find any of the SA shipping companies.

I purchased an e92 in July and it came from Germany, I got it much faster

So it took about two months. Well it well worth the wait.
