New 128i Delivery Update

It's like Charlie Brown with the football. I ordered my stripped 128i on Oct. 12 and expected delivery before the end of November. My previous experience was with the delivery of a 2002 325i that took less than 6 weeks. Not any more. BMW has changed ports and carriers in the last few years to cheaper and slower delivery systems that unduly lengthen the delivery schedule.
Ship arrived in Brunswick GA on Nov. 23. At one point I was promised delivery by Nov 30 but it didn't happen. It seems from my research that the BMW car carrier from Brunswick to points South has only one truck. Still I was promised December 2. No one called but the football got pulled away anyway.
Now I'm waiting again but no call and little likelihood that it will happen today.
Let you know. Feel free to prescribe patience.

Just got word. Going to pick it up this morning

Sorry to hear that. I guess I kind of get used to waiting when the 1M is on the way haha...

Also it is a 1 series which has a much lower production number for NA than the 3 series which they pump out.
