time from port to west coast?

I hope this isn't a re post but what's the average time for everyone from port to pick up at delivery?


EDIT: sorry i should've been more specific. time from port in Germany to time to dealership pickup. I'm hoping to get my 1 for my bday (7/28) but i don't think its too likely...

I'm not sure what it is for BMW but for military moves (I shipped from Long Beach) and the car went through Germany (same port BMW ships from) it is about 6 weeks. Now, how much of that is the car just sitting around waiting for other military shipments or other military move type slowdowns but it's about 6 weeks from West Coast to Germany...

Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme is 25 days according to NYK. Then add whatever's standard for the delivery center and a couple of days for transport and the dealer to prep it....

Took 5 days for my car to go from Port Hueneme to Monterey.

As for total time for my car... I still don't know. The dealership told me to expect the car sometime in mid-May, I ended up getting it in early April. I ordered it in early February and didn't track it online or anything. I just got a phone call on a Monday morning from my dealer, expected to hear it was delayed, and instead he told me it arrived a month early and would be there Friday. Exciting moment.

Here were the dates for my car:

production starts - Mar 26
production ends - Apr 2
leaves port - Apr 14
arrived in Port Hueneme - May 8
arrived in local dealership - May 15
picked up - May 16

The time on the ship was about 24 days. Little over 7 weeks for the whole process from the start of production until I got it my hands.
