YES!!! My car was loaded onto the Tugela and should arrive in Baltimore 5/5. I was really lucky because that was only the second ww ship I had a shot to get on.

NHman, I would recommend you keep checking the ww track and trace feature as my boat left bremerhaven before it showed up on their site. You may find you are on the Asian king.

Good luck to everyone. Hope you get a rapid load time and build time.

Congrats and another milestone. Hopefully mine is on the Asian King which is scheduled to depart tomorrow.

For those of us on the Torino, we have just entered the Panama Canal!

Where did you find this? Last I saw, the Torino was pulling donuts waiting for its chance to go through.

Somehow the wait is getting worse the closer it gets!

So mine is at the dealer. Picking it up in 2 hours. I probably won't be very productive the rest of the day.

Sorry about that, I just pulled up the Panama Canal webcam and saw what looked to be our ship. Turns out it's just another Wallenius Wilhemsen ship that looks the same as the Torino.

You are correct, Torino is now docked just outside of the Gatun Locks, in the port at Manzanillo Bay. (Not yet visible on the webcam.) This is after doing a few sweet donuts in the adjacent waters.

But she is inside the gates of the Canal Zone, and will be departing through the locks and into the Pacific ocean this evening.

Just called this morning and my status is now "in transport to port of exit". Here's to hoping it will get on a boat sometime next week.

My vehicle has been at the port since 4/15. The second vessel, being the Asian King, departed on 4/23 and......my car is still at the port. Very frustrating. The next vessel departs on 5/2.

NH Man

Here's to hoping both our cars will be on the 5/2 boat. I've more less resigned myself to a late May delivery and anything earlier than that will just be a pleasant surprise. I've wanted an M3 for 10 years, and this will be my 1st BMW to boot. The wait is tough but I think it will be worth it, only wish my schedule permitted PCD, but also didn't want to miss out on the last NA M3 either.

At least we'll have them for the summer!

That sucks. I hope you get on the 5/2 boat.

Here ya go!!! Note the slightly ajar door on the last photo. This is the first of many fails at door closing. The doors on this car take a lot more effort to close if the windows are up vs. my previous E92s.

My fingers are crossed. My hope is that I have it prior to Memorial Day.

Very nice!!!

Those on the Torino, we seem to still be just hanging around the Panama Canal..... It needs to push those other ships out of the way and get moving!!!

Atombyte, congrats! Looks sick!

Mine arrived at VPC yesterday, so I think I'm a few days out...

Congrats Atombyte! Looks great but I'm not sure about that color .
Watching other people get there cars actually helps me enjoy the whole ordering process a bit more.

Just curious, did they throw in any extras at the dealership (all weather mats, coffee mug, etc)?

I think you'll love the color! I got the regular floor mats. Didn't ask for all-weather as I have the WeatherTech floor liners on order. You can probably get the all-weather if you ask.

Thanks! I might get some other wheels eventually. I rather like the ones that came with it for DD purpose. The roads around here aren't really bad, but they're not that good either, so I like having a little extra sidewall to absorb the bumps. For now, this is a lease so I'll keep it stock for a while. I'm pretty sure I'll buy this car out so I'll eventually get some racing wheels/tires and do God only knows what other mods. But I think I'll keep the original wheels for DD purposes.
