Order Placed for a M235.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just got back from the dealer and finally placed an order after dealing with 5 other dealers. This guy is cool, down to earth, and did not BS with me. I hate it when they BS, I don't mind paying more, but I stop at BS.

Anyhoo, my spec:

EB M235
Manual
Tech package
Cold weather, which I originally didn't want, but my wife must have.
That is it!! the simpler the better.

He gave me the production number on the spot, looking at a late may or early June delivery. I could go quicker, which I'm crossing my fingers.
Now the hardship is the wait, I hate the wait, I'll be tracking my production number every day to see of any changes.

I will be looking at ordering parts while I wait to get by.

Yeah, me too. I'm watching that damn website like a hawk, LOL.

Speaking of which, my car has said "production begins" for more than 10 days. Does anybody know how long that part of the process typically lasts?

Edit: I forgot to tell you congratulations on your order!

The more often you hit refresh on your browser the faster it goes Seriously though call the 800 number mine has been done 4 days and still shows in production on site.

Philadelphia. Think Baltimore for port but not 100% sure. We're cutting it pretty close for the boat on the 9th. One leaves on the 11th then again 17th but 17th boat is faster so gets in only two days after 11th. Where is yours headed?

I'm in San Antonio, TX. I know there's a port in Galveston but I haven't had time to research if that's where it will be arriving.

From the minimal research I've done looks like the boats work their way down the east coast but who knows. Crazy Germans. I just sold my car today so going without for a month. Mine can't get here fast enough!

I'm in Chicago and my car got delivered to Baltimore. The ship I was on (Parsifal) then went to Savannah, Georgia after that. So I think you are right, they work their way down the East coast.

If you save this in your phone exactly as it is but with your production number instead of mine it will automatically call, wait right amount of time, hit options etc. 1 (800) 831-1117,2,,,0605370,1

So change the 06.. To your production number.

LOL, you've got it on speed dial.

If I'd known the info on the 800 number was more up to date than the website I would have done that too. I've seen some tutorials that show you how to find out what ship it is on so that will be my next project. There was even one guy on here that posted a picture of the ship that his 235 was on by using the port authorities camera.

I heard that the more you call the faster the car gets here.

Also true. I heard if you hit 1k calls they skip the boat and fly your car here.
