Does anybody have an idea of how long it took for your M5 to get from #153-Assembly Started to #180-Waiting for Export Dispatch. I'm trying to work my business travel schedule so I will be home when my car finally arrives.

I am in the same situation as you I called BMWNA and this is what I was told. My car is scheduled to go to assembly on Oct 3 and this is the process as follows:

For Example:

Build Start Date: OCT 3

1. Build Time : 7-10 days (aprox 1 week)
2. Getting car to the port: 7-14 days (aprox 1-2 weeks)
3. Shipping by boat: 14-21 days (aprox 2-3 weeks)
4. Once boat arrives Shipping to dealership: 5-10 days (aprox 1 week)

Based upon what BMWNA told me, from start (Building the M5) to finish (At your Dealer)

BEST CASE = 35 days (5 weeks)
LIKELY CASE = 45 days (6 1/2 weeks)
WORST CASE = 56 days (8 weeks)

again this is the info that was furnished by BMWNA......Jay.S :M5thumbs:

So far we are week 36 for our build times and we are looking right at 7 weeks. I doubt it gets much faster than 6-7...
