Just called the 800 number and checked the owners circle web page and my coupe is being transferred to the port to await transport. Any ideas on how long before it arrives to my BMW Center in Dallas, TX. Thanks to all the posts, they have really been supportive.

I am still waiting too....for me production ended march 06 since then on awaiting transport status.....I've read that usually takes 4-5 days average but could be much longer depending on how many cars ahead of you.

Well, both the 800# and the OC tend to be a little behind, as well all know. So some may not realize they are "En Route" until several days later.

I've heard of people getting their cars while the OC said Awaiting Transport. Too bad the system isn't better.

Does Waiting to be released to carrrier mean i am waiting for a ship or does it mean i am still at the factory waiting to get on a train to the port?

Hmm, that might change things for you.

2 WWL ships left last week with Charleston as one of the destination ports...the Liberty on 3/05 and Courage on 3/06. The next 2 leave on 3/11 and 3/19.

But with K Line, a ship left on 3/03 and another leaves on 3/12.

They are clearly not leaving as frequently for Charleston, which sucks. This is by far the toughest part of the wait. Knowing that it's built and stuck in line...

When I ordered mine on March 3 I told the dealer I wasn't going to be in the country for sure until mid May, so have it delivered accordingly. Now the production is scheduled to be complete March 11. I don't even know whawt to say about this. I don't want the car sitting outside at the dealership.

They did the same thing to me. I wasn't supposed to go into production until 13th week. Looks like you and I will have our cars at the dealership mid/end of April. I don't want it sitting there either. i don't know what to say to them.
What makes me mad is that I wanted to change my order to the style 230 wheels and now I can't do that because it's done with production 3 weeks prior to when they told me. They better something out with me.
