Yeah, but if it sinks, we'll get our money back or 2010 M3's. Oh well. I am excited to get the car but ED would have been worth it even if it was a rental. M3's are perfect for European roads...

No tracking update yet, huh... this sucks. I wonder how many days it will take for our cars to go through customs...

Sucks that us West Coasters have a harder time tracking than the East Coast guys do.

I heard the ship is coming on the 25th from my CA at South Bay BMW. It will then take roughly two weeks to go through customs, pass through the VPC, and to get to the dealer.

It's almost here!

After weeks of no updates, happened to check this evening and it's now just off the California coast.

Here's hoping for a quick offload and a speedy delivery!

You beat me to it! I was just coming online to say the ship was almost here.

According to Port Hueneme, it's due in port on Sunday....

So my theory is the the crew dealt swiftly and deftly with the pirates. Skillfully transited the Panama Canal....

Soon my friends...soon!

How do you know whether the cars are still on the ship?

















Anyway, how long are you guys expecting it to take for the cars to clear customs and the VPC? Do you think the cars will be at the dealers by Friday?

I was going to do two things:
1) check the webcam for BLG logistics
2) drive by the port. It's only 15 minutes from the house. I thought my two boys would enjoy the trip

I drove to Port Hueneme today. I couldn't get close to the Polaris Leader...security and all. I didn't realize that the Port is also part of the Hueneme Naval Base.

I did manage to snap a few picks from outside. The guard wouldn't let me snap pictures inside and only allowed me in to do a U-turn so I wouldn't block the traffic behind me...

Hope this help all of us that were waiting to get our cars off the much anticipated and long awaited ship...

Sweeeeeeeeeeet. My car's somewhere inside that thing! I hope.

When do you think the dealers are going to have our cars!? This coming weekend would be sweet... but I doubt they are gonna clear customs and the VPC that fast!

Given that the boat has already left port and is in Los Angeles as of this morning (http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...MMSI=563710000) it's a safe bet that the cars aren't on it anymore.

I was told that next weekend is a small possibility for picking up my car (I'm in the Bay Area). I wasn't thinking that was realistic, but now I'm more optomistic.

Well, I'm just down the road, so I'm hopping...fingers, toes, and everthing else than can be, crossed!

I'll keep you posted.

Any word of the cars, guys? I haven't had any update yet with my car still showing no customs clearance date on EH Harms site. BMW still says it's not yet at the prep center, too.

I suspect we will be waiting until next week.

Had a friend who just purchased a 328i. While at the dealer, he mentioned my name. They told him to tell me that I may be picking it up this weekend. I however, haven't heard anything...

Have any of you confirmed your cars are out of customs and at the VPC? Mine still says that it's in transport on the BMW website and nothing is shown on the EH Harms customs clearance date field.

No word on my car yet... but was told not to expect anything until it leave the VPC since that place is a cone of silence when it comes to status updates. Once it clears the VPC, I've been told cars often make it to my dealer in one day.
