Dealer told me I was at 111 so I could still make a change. I added CA. He said once I hit 112 I can not make any further changes.

Hi, newbie here. Ordered the 135i Conv on Apr 4th. I called the 800 number and was told the vehicle is released to a carrier and it awaiting transport to port of exit. My question is, has anyone here also ordered the 135 convert and if so, how long from order to delivery did it take? The reason I ask is our sales guy told us 6 - 8 weeks from order and I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later!!!

Welcome aboard Texasgirl!! I suspect the dealer is about right. I ordered a 135i coupe on 3/19 - the buidl was complete on 4/3 and all it had to do was catch a train from Leipzig to Bremerhaven and catch a boat. It finally is on a boat as 4/16 and it won't be in my hands until 5/10 at the earliest.

I was getting impatient until I read your post, Hugo. I ordered my 128i cabrio on 3/20, it was built on 4/1, and just got the boat on 4/18. If it's here by the middle of May, I'll be very surprised - and pleased. But like they say, "all good things come to he who waits"!

Welcome. Sounds like you're in the Week 16 build, like myself and several others here.

Check out this thread and you can share the misery with us:

does anyone know exactly how long it took to ship from bremerhaven to port hueneme? My ship, Grus, left port on 4/13 and says it wont arrive until ETA 5/9. Is that really long or is that an average time? Anyone else on this ship?

I am on this ship with you with a final destination of AZ. So far the port of hueneme schedule still has the Grus arriving on the 8th so, please, don't add any more days.

Have you tried http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shiplocations.phtml and enter your ship's call sign in the drop down menu 'ship tracker', in the 'find specific ship by name or call sign'? It has shown the Elektra about every 6 hours on the map. At first, when the Elektra was going to various ports in Europe, there were two sites that showed it. http://www.vesseltracker.com/en/Home.html worked, but had up to a 24 hour delay in postion. When she docked in Southampton, England, http://www.ais-live.co.uk/ showed actual postion live. Pretty cool to watch her depart for Canada! Good luck!
