(However, a 325i might be made in South Africa which adds a lot more time.)

For West Coast deliveries it's about 30 days on the ship from Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme. Then roughly a week (maybe a little less) to go through the VPC and be delivered to the dealer.

But, wait a second. Production on the 328 and 335 sedans was supposed to start 9/1. This means that the last 325 would have been built at least a month ago. I think that you need to get a straight story from this salesman. Maybe he's getting the car from another dealer?

But the car I ordered was already bulided since it was the last production of the 325i discontinued
