West Coast Anyone? - At port waiting for vessel

Is anyone else at the port waiting for a vessel? My car is there and I wanted to know first off if anyone else is there, and second, what is the schedule for the next ship leaving?
I pulled the following listing, but I remember reading somewhere that BMW only uses NYK for west coast. Does that mean the next ship that my car can leave on does not leave until 04/02!! Thats murder!!

Any help would be much appreciated...

Thanks

I assume its Hojin, which sucks for me, great news for you if you can make it to port on time...

My car finished production last Friday, but is, I assume, still waiting for a ship as well. Sigh. The journey is the destination.

have you called the 800#? That tells you where your car is at. Mine says "waiting at port for shipping vessel, no shipping information available at this time"

I finished production on 3/31 and probably got to port 4/2. I doubt I can make the Hojin 4/3 but I'm hoping for the Grus on 4/11. Getting on a ship seems to be luck of draw. Some people make it on a boat in 3/4 days after arriving at port others 3/4 weeks. Have no idea why the variance.

I'm waiting for a west coast delivery. According to BMW's site my car just became "en route." I don't know what ship it's on; I haven't had time to call the CA. But, since BMW's site is always a day or so behind, maybe it left Germany before today?

We are probably on the same boat.

I just don't know which one that is.
I asked my CA to run a vehicle inquiry report, but no response yet

I am at port, waiting for a vessel as well. She has been waiting for her ride to the West Coast for a couple days now. This poll shows that most cars take 1-2 weeks at port to catch their ride over.

Ya. It took just over 1 week for me. It will be on a boat soon for you guys. Let me know and I'll update the M-DCT production thread with your boat info.
