here is my deal:

325i, s.a. built...placed my order on 4/15/02. called bmwusa today (6/21) and they said the car is in germany now, and a ship has not been assigned. she said the eta @ the port in new jersey is july 4th and that 3 or 4 days later is the normal wait for the car to arrive at the dealership. the status code is 193 (arrived @ port of exit).
i live in brooklyn, new york.

that was the date they originally gave me...you better call 1-800-831-1117 x-3 and double check, because i doubt that you will get your car on that date if you ordered in may, unless they had a car with your exact specs already on the way, but they told you that you were ordering from scratch directly from the factory...just a suggestion. good luck, i hope you get it on the 26th. andrew

I walked into the dealership on April 1st, and they had the car for me on April 3rd. Two miserable days to get my baby. It was torture!

Mine sat @ the port of exit for 5 weeks. 5 FRIGGIN WEEKS! I got so fed up with it that I ended up getting another car similar but with HK stereo.

That's quick... you must've ordred the one that is already in stock. I ordered mine (in stock) 6/19 and expected to be ready in 8/10. The boat is scheduled to dock end of July.

That's interesting... maybe they send cars back to Germany after assembled??? You might want to check your VIN number to see where it's assembled. If the 11th digit(letter) is 'N', it's assembled in South Africa. I'm curious, can you check?

ps. when did you order your car and when are you expecting to get it? I just ordered mine and will be getting in August. The car is assembled in south africa according to the VIN number.
