The dealer phoned to say it was in Germany on the 8th May. I can calculate it was at Southampton by the 11th May, base on ship timetables. The dealer said it cleared UK customs on the 13th May.

All this is fairly slick...... then there is the 10 days it take them to get it from Southampton to Norwich.....

Yeah, they could speed that up... I wonder what they actually do!

Just did some research, mine I believe is on a ship called "Courage" which is due to dock in S'hampton on the 23rd (and is currently somewhere near Belgium)

This would suggest i'll probably take delivery of my car on perhaps the 6th or 7th of June... if the 10-14 day average is accurate.

I think the push it at walking speed all the way!

Courage left on the 5th May which was 8 days after mine left - not sure why as we had similar build weeks. Odd that.

finally had the call for my delivery .. woohoo.
Comes into the stealer next Friday (24th).. And ready for me to pick up on the following Weds (29th). I was hoping to have it next week, but at least I have an end date now. No more "when when when" rattling around in my head.

Great news!

My car (or the boat it should be on) is now docked in Belgium...

Which boat was yours on Jay?

I've got sod all chance of finding that out I reckon. My sales guy quit the dealer, so I only have the sales manager as a contact, and getting ANYTHING out of him has been a nightmare. This is the first time I've had a call from him besides the initial "your sales rep quit" call, which was end of March.
I'll try and get hold of him..

but yes, great news and I can get excited again. I only test drove one car, and that was back in Jan. Since then, I've not even seen another M Sport on the road, so it will be a "surprise" to me again when I get in it

Is that what you call your dealer sounds about right with the lack of communication you have suffered.

Your car may have been on the same boat if its getting to the dealer on the 24th. Mine will be in Norwich on the 22nd but they are turning it around for pick up by the 23rd after I "suggested" it may be best!

As you say, at least we have a date and the long wait will soon be over......

So I just got a call from BMW

Mine is going to be delivered next Friday (31st) between 8am and 1pm. It's currently sat at the BMW distribution centre and has been allocated a VRM - so it must have been on a different boat than I had thought...!

Talking

Finally got it home

Love the looks and drive and have not noticed anything negative to so far. Even the 19" RFT which is Pirelli P Zero which i was not so shure about in advance is not that stiff as i feared.

You guys really have something to look forward to

Here are some pics for you :-)
