Also, what are the specs on yours? i ordered a Interlagos Blue with black interior, carbon fiber leather trim, competition package, 6MT, back up sensors, rear sun shade, heated seats and NAV. Oh also got the sunroof.. CF roof looks cool but i dont really have a need for it.




Tell me about it.. i ordered this thing over a month ago... cant wait to get it!

Mine is AW+FR+ZCP+PDC+CFroof+6MT. Kept it simple. Yeah, i found Boheme has not moved for the last 48 hours. it will become active again when closer to the shore.

depending on where the ship is, sometimes they need to navigate port traffic and the ports are not ready for them, so it's like a "holding pattern". Is this right outside a port?

News flash, I just heard about why some ships are delaying their course to east coast. I just heard that there was a massive crane accident at the main port in NJ today and it'll affect container processing traffic and reduce volume to 65% of current levels. They're looking to clear it up by end of February, but all incoming cargo will be offloaded in order they are originally scheduled to arrive and it's an estimated extra 3 weeks of delay. Sorry looks like a March delivery for you!




















































j/k, doesn't help does it?

HA! you almost had me for a second there. That would really suck. I am swapping out of my 335xi lease for this. The timing would suck.

Mine finished production on Jan 28th, and it's still sitting at the port.

I'm tempted to put my ski boat in the water and head over to pick it up and bring it back myself.

Mine has been at the port over a week. It was released from the VPC to the carrier (Waggoners Trucking) on 1/31, and it still has not been loaded up to be trucked out here. Apparently there aren't enough cars yet to justify a load across the Rockies. I'm getting quite frustrated and annoyed.

Thats a great individual color you chose. If your is at the port, it may be waiting for our ship to arrive on Monday and then load up to ship out.

No, it's already been shipped. It's at the US port, released to the trucking company, but the trucking company has been sitting on it for 9 days now.

Just got word that it is on a truck now. Assuming the truck drives over the passes with snow blowing in this weekend, I may see the car on Monday!

Anyway, I was never able to get tracking to happen via bmwusa.com. The instructions did not seem to reflect what I was seeing on the screen. Oh, my financing shows up, but tracking the car? That's science fiction as far as I'm concerned.

Mine finished production Jan 24th and today showed status "en route".
Anyone on the same boat?

Phone number still says "at the port waiting for shipping vessel". However, I'm west coast, so I'm guessing we would be on different ships.

hey, those circular movements are probably places to avoid entrance into bad weather area. Ships do those sometimes.

When the boat is out of range of AIS, the only other location service that is updated daily is http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/

This will track your boat with daily coordinate updates if your boat reports them, which major ship lines usually do.

Are you on the Athens Highway, by any chance? That's what I'm on. Last I checked, it was off the southwest coast of Spain, but that was very early this morning. This is so OBSESSIVE! I want to watch that thing every minute of the day! I wish it had webcams and stuff!

You're right. Probably different boats.

My CA said Queen Sapphire, but the logistics don't make sense as QS is already in US shores and my production ended Jan 24th.
My VIN doesn't show on WW website. I'll have to call CA again and confirm. My car is going to Performance Center for a Mar 22nd PCD.
I still got time, but yes, this is obsessive/frustrating. I don't think I ever want to do order like this again. Next time I'll buy off the lot.

I looked up Queen Sapphire on vesselfinder.com, and if this is your ship, it looks like it last checked in from off the coast of Nova Scotia on 2/8. It says it left Southampton on 1/29 and it is scheduled to dock in NY on the 11th. It makes sense it could be yours. It'll dock in NY, and then should be down in Charleston in maybe a couple weeks. I'm scheduled for a 4/5 PCD, myself. Can't wait!
