Anyone on Independence II?

I know this must be the most painful 3 weeks of your life, because a minute feels like a day for me now.. Especially after going to the NY auto show and actually seeing the fox red interior, I am in

yo signing in...for one of my friends

I was just looking at the vessel tracker website, looks like the independence II has never reported its coordinates to the site before. So it looks like the ship will be in a "black hole" for quite a few days...

Mine is on board

Even the VIN confirms on the W&W web site. I guess I should be receiving it in TX sometime around Tax day.

I am on the Independence and show only that it was recieved on 3/17, logged on 3/18 and loaded on 3/20. How do I know when it will arrive in SC from Bremerhaven?

Well if you go on the tracking site http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp
enter your vin, you should have the ship info. According to the info it should arrive at CHARLESTON,SC on the 8th of April. After that maybe 3-4 days in the prep center and you should get your car within a week! hopefully!

I'm on there as well. Originally, it was set to reach NY on 4/2, but that got pushed back to 4/4. Let's hope that's the last delay!

The ship left the port of Southampton around 4:30 ET. if you go to this link like right after I post this http://www.ais-live.co.uk/AIS%20Live/aissolent.html, you should still be able to see Independence II leaving the port slowly..
GOOD NEWS THOUGH!! On that site, the ETA to NY is April 3, at 9:00 ET!!! We'll keep updating, but it should be a black hole for the next week..

I know.. Sorry guys on Electra!! I respect all of you fully. But I pray everyday that something like that won't happen to me, or else I'll be very pissed...

I looked and could not find the Independence? Also, so I am clear, the ship will arrive at Baltimore, head to the VPC (3-4 days) there...then off to the dealership (~1 week)?

Thanks for the input guys.

In my knowledge shouldn't the car be unloaded at NJ/NY, and will be processed at the VDC in Port Newark, NJ for like 3 days or so.. Since the 3rd is a thursday i would imagine we won't be getting the car this weekend!

you may be right. I think there is a BMW center in NJ. So, I assume my car would be on a truck heading to Chicago by the 9th. It might then arrive in Chicago by the 11th or 12th. This is tight, I leave the country for a bit on the 14th!! UGHHH!! This is killing me. Thanks for the input though.
