My 08 M5 has been built and now has been shipped on 4/15 with expected arrival at port on 5/3.​

My build is:
Indianapolis Red Exterior
Portland Brown Merino Interior /Madeira walnut
HUD
Comfort Access
Premium sound
Multi-function seats
I-pod / Satellite radio
Rear impact bags​

Is there anyone else waiting for shipment on that boat?​

Congrats. Great color combo. Indy red looks great in person.
Thanks. I am very excited to see it in person. Up till now my color decisions were based on photos, the BMW website, talking to members and color swatches at the dealer. I am sure I will love it...

Thats great!

I've been told that it will take about one week to get down to florida after it hits port in S.C. How long will your car take to get to california?

BMW uses NJ for East Coast VDC and Oxnard for West cost VDC.

Also BMW shipps approx 30,000 cars a month to the USA and uses different shipping lines for each coast.

Cars going to east coast and west coast are not on the same boat. Also it is highly doubtful that you would both be on the same boat even going to the same place, unless you had the same day, not even week build.
