Anyone else's M3 on the boat?

I just spoke with my CA and he told me that my M3 left Germany on Feb. 14 and will arrive at the port in NJ on Feb. 24.

Does anyone know how to find out the name of the ship? My CA didn't know where to find that information.

Also, my CA is not sure when my car will leave the NJ port to the dealership. He knows about the March 8 launch date, but he said BMW NA hasn't told him when the car will be delivered to the dealership (on March 8 or after). Does anyone have concrete information?

Does yours show up as awaiting transport on Owner's Circle? Mine is still showing that but I am hoping that I am on the same ship as you since mine is bound for NY first. Owner's circle showed me awaiting transport since last wednesday I think... It was a week 7 production which finished building around Feb 11th.

Try this--enter your VIN & search:

http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTrac...trackType=Auto

If you're on Wllenius Wilhelmsen Lines the name of the ship will come up along with when it was loaded and departed. Then click on the "voyage" number and it will give full schedule details. My car and Jinxter's are en route to the West Coast currently.

Mine shows up on the OC as En Route. The OC showed Awaiting Transport from Feb 2-15. My production was complete Feb 2/1, so we may not be on the same ship, I'm not sure.

Thanks Greg! I found the name of the ship and it's due to arrive at the port Feb 25.

Any idea if you or Jinxter will receive your M3's before the March 8 launch date?

11 days seems pretty fast! Any idea how long it takes boats to arrive in southern California? My car is currently in the quality assurance check, hopefully it'll be on a boat soon.

greg and my boat left last friday the 15th and will arrive on the 10th of march so sail time is about 24 days but that depends on your ship as well.

Another day's travel north, probably. I'm guessing one week after arrival at the dock to be conservative.l

Your dates are almost exactly the same as mine. Does OC show your car still awaiting transport or en route? Is your boat supposed to dock in NY?

Mine has gotta be leaving soon.

I tried the web address for ship tracking. It comes forbiden access, in big letters. You would have thought I was going to attack the thing.

It shows waiting transport. I called and the c/s rep said it was shipped. I would think mine would go to Charleston...

The link got truncated. Try this:

http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTracking/

Click on "Auto" then enter your VIN on the next screen.
