Told mine was on K-Line "Emden" today. Anyone know if there is a way to actually verify that my VIN# number is on that boat? I called K-Line and they said that BMW ships in bulk and there was no way for me to confirm my car was in that shipment... I call BS on that but that is what I was told.

Looks like you can track container cargo on their website, but didn't find anything about car tracking. They obviously have to be able to track each car internally; guess their external resources are not as sophisticated as WW.

My car just (I assume) got unloaded from the K Line Ingolstadt and their resources are very weak to say the least. Hard to find their ships even with independent AIS sites

Ok my ship was supposed to arrive yesterday into NYC. The tracking info via sailwx ended March 3 @ 12:00 UTC probably 200 miles off coast. I assume it's docked, 2wglobal hasn't been updated. I also assume shortly after unloading that the site will be updated. Can somoene with an AISLive account check on the status of the Manon at NYC for me? Not sure if my AIS account will be activated or not. Thx

Yeah what is the deal with K-Line... For anyone else on "Emden" it appears it has left South Hampton and is headed over to Charleston. Very surprised nobody else has mentioned they are also on Emden.... kinda lonely lol.

Good catch. Because I wanted it fast. Couldn't get a good spot here and I found a #1 spot back east. Desperate times call for desperate measures and this is a car I had to have...

You could have had a courtesy delivery done to the West coast (buy from Eastern dealer, but have delivered to Calif.).

That's what I thought initially but apparently not. I think it must be imperative for these allocations to be received by the dealer which you purchased. Maybe that's just with the M series? I still have to pay for transport here to the west coast. I made the suggestion but it couldn't be done.

No worries, as the trip from Bremerhaven to NY is a lot shorter on the water and even with terrestrial travel time, I think my M3 will be here faster than had it gone by water.

Who are you having transport it and what is the cost?

I'm using the guy that the dealer recommends. I am going this route because it's a coordination effort to get another transporter to come get the car since they give you a window of about a week to pick up the car. The dealer said he can just have his guy pick it up. I don't know when my car is going to arrive from VPC and when the dealer is ready to take my payment.

Transportreviews.com has decent reviews for Creative Transports on the leg from Maryland to CA. They can do it for $850, open transport, takes about 7 days. Most places want about $1000-1200. In speaking with all the transporters, they agree that open should not be a problem and I am OK with that. I am paying about $1350 open transport. Hopefully it will be faster since I'm paying a bit more. $500 more than Creative, that's a good chunk of change that I wouldn't mind saving. Closed transport I was looking anywhere from $1600-2000 and decided it wasn't worth it.

I tried the the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website again and still had no luck! I know I am so jealous of the other members on the board that have recieved their cars. I am also kicking myself for taking PC delivery because even when the car is here I still have to wait for openings for the session.

It will be a great experience when it finally happens, though. No scheduled date yet?
