why wouldn't they? It should be the same as the rest of the country. The ordering system is centralised.

My dealer said that my car should be built this week. Haven't been given any other details at this stage.

True, but it seems oz is behind the US and Europe on the launch dates. I have ordered a 135 but haven't got my production slot as yet. If I miss this the April run I'll have to wait for May and then won't my new baby until July. June is the best I can hope for but the next few days are critical!

You got you VIN number! You must be the 1st Aussie to get that. No you can track your car's journey to Aust. Did your dealer give it to you willingly?

Guys, I think it is WBAU...not V. Anyway, mine is 3 before Steve Brown's and 8 after Kris! Looks like our cars should be on the production line together! WBAUC72000VF18627 is mine...

I'm jealous. I'm still waiting on my production slot! Should know in the next couple of days if I made the April production.

I checked the other VINs from you guys and looks like yours aren't on the Taronga with Richard Newton's. Looks like his car is going to be the first to get to Australia.

So if Richard'd car was built on 14/2/08, it took just on 1 month to get loaded on the ship. If my car was supposedly built last week, that should mean it should get loaded on a ship around 24/4/08.

Which means that it is not likely that I will get delivery by 19 May, unless it's on a speed boat and gets rushed through the port, customs and compliance formalities.

For Perthites...my white 135i with sun roof (this is Perth afterall) is on the boat TORTUGAS and docking in Freo on 13th May. I should get it on the release date (20/21st may) if the customs and compliance folks are nice to me.
