Dunno. Nov 15 delivery is what Carorder.com told me what dealer had told them. 7 days after docking is what the dealer told me directly... so i'm not sure exactly what happened to the extra 14 days or so... i figured they (carorder.com and the dealer) had put some "buffer time" for any delays, paperwork, dealer prep, etc. Either way, it seems if all goes well, I'll get the car sooner, and I'm not going to argue over that :-)
: Why almost 20 days from the time it arrives at Oxnard till the time it is ready at the dealership? Seems like from most of the posts here it is normally done in 5-7days.

: : I don't know what production week my car was (328i/steel bl/grey/S+P/Xen/folding r. seats/in-dash CD) as my dealer isn't very communicative regarding the details of the transaction. All I know is that it is a mid-September production car. But my dealer did tell me that my car boarded the ship on 9/27 or so, due arrival 10/25 in Oxnard. Dealer expects the car be at the dealers lot and ready for pickup around Nov 15, and another few days for it to be delivered to me (I used carorder.com, so the car has to be trucked another 500 miles or so from the dealers lot), which makes it around thanksgiving.
