My car was released from the factory to the carrier yesterday.

Roughly how long should it take to reach my UK dealer based in the Midlands has anyone any idea?

Getting a bit excited now!

Anything from 4 days to a couple of weeks; my currect E60 arrived at the dealer 4 days after it was released for shipment, but I'm told that I was lucky that it had arrived at the docks just at the right time, normally there is a wait for a boat.

It was around the 13th March and I was quoted around 8/10 weeks delivery so its about right.

Couple of weeks would be my guess. Your dealer will be in touch in a few days to arrange a deliver in my experience.
