From Bremerhaven what is the typical route and final port for a South FL delivery? I am guessing Charleston but it could also be Brunswick. I see more W&W departures for Brunswick. Anyone knows which port would it be?

Thanks!

I believe cars are usually Status 112 for 2-3 weeks. My dealer told me the estimated build-week. You can't tell on-line or over the phone.

You're close!

My car was 'On Order' for around 30-40 days. Then went to status 112 -assigned a production date where it then went into production 2 weeks from then.

Am I missing something or did BMW change their Owner's Circle website up? I just got my production number and I am trying to figure out where to plug it in to search for my M in the delivery process. I know the car has been produced and awaiting transport because the dealer said so and the dealers never lie. Seriously tho, where can I track the journey my M will take on its way to TX?

They changed, no longer OC. go to bmwusa.com, sign-in or sign-up. Once you do that, you can add/remove a vehicle (choose add, enter the prod number or vin number).

Production status on 800#

Hi All,

I tried the 1-800-831-1117, as this should be much more accurate than BMW's website.

"The 800 automated information number is much more accurate than Owner's Circle (by two days or so), so use it with your production number to figure out what's going on with your car. The number is 1-800-831-1117; say “Vehicle Production Status” and then read out your production number. If your car production is complete, it will say “Your vehicle production is complete.” This whole stage takes a week or less."

I ordered my M3 on 5/24/2008 for production in July. The 800# tells me that the car is already in the paint shop and ready this week????

Am I lucky or did I get the wrong info???

Updated 6/12/08.
I was probably lucky as the vehicle is ready and "Awaiting transport" as per 6/10/08

Updated 6/16/08.
Today 800# told me: "Main port of exit", that must be Bremerhaven.
Does any know, where I can find the VIN of the car for tracking on W&W?

Updated 6/28/08.
The dealer gave me the VIN.
I tracked via http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp and I see that my car in on the Don Juan to New York, loaded 6/19/08.
Expected date of arrival: July 4, 2008.
Let's see if I can track the boat as well.

=> yep,via www.sailwx.info I tracked the Don Juan. About halfway from Europe to Canada now, then NY is next stop.

Updated 7/03/08.
Don Juan is on its way from Halifax to New York! ETA still July 4th.
- Spartanburg Delivery is scheduled for August 7, 2008, that's another 4.5 weeks!!!

Keep you informed.
A.
