It's kind of wierd not being able to do anything but wait now. Next trackable event may be the canal crossing around 2/29.

Glad you found your car. I think our cars are probably on the same boat (here's hoping for calm seas...) - the Elektra - my car is scheduled for delivery to Halifax today (to ship to Toronto) and then the ship heads to the east coast U.S. As of this morning the Elektra was off the coast of Labrador so hopefully its on schedule.

My M3 is on the Faust due to arrive at the NJ/NY port on Feb. 25. I haven't tracked the ship's progress, so I don't know if it's still on schedule, but I hope it is!

How did you get such detailed tracking info for the Elektra? The only tracking info I have for the Faust is that it left Bremerhaven on 2/15 and is due in NY/NJ on 2/25.

After you enter your VIN on the Cargo Tracking page of the www.2wglobal.com website, click on the voyage number for the Faust and it will show you where else the ship has stopped and on what dates (most recently the UK on Feb 17th)

and/or

Go to www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/index.html and 'search for ship by name' at the bottom of the page and you may get additional tracking information there - some ships seem to post information and other don't.

More detailed information here posted by Nathan - its a very helpful post which I used to track my car - otherwise I wouldn't have known where to start either!

Sweet, just for kicks this morning after calling the hotline and still hearing that my car is at the port, I tried searching the VIN # on the website. And now my car is on a boat.

The Manon! Don't quite understand it because as I read it it almost makes it sound like it's already landed in NY??? Need to do more research...***EDIT*** Ok loaded on the 21st. Now I need to find all the stops it's making as searching google on the approximate time it will take to dock in NYC it has varied greatly.

Status Port Time(dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm)

LOADED ON VESSEL NEW YORK, NY 21/02/2008 10:00
RECEIVED AT TERMINAL NEW YORK, NY 19/02/2008 10:00
BOOKED NEW YORK, NY 12/02/2008 10:00

Ok, so for anyone on the Manon, I searched and found a good thread on a 1 series forum.

Here is some information on the ship. It's laden with a bunch of 1 Series cars as well. Voyage EA-807 is schedule to arrive at NYC on March 3rd. Then it will arrive in Baltimore, MD on March 5th.

Anyone else with an M3 on this boat?
