Mine's still at the port awaiting a vessel. When is the next boat to TX?

Do TX deliveries come through the west coast?

My car just got to the port today. I'm going to SF so obviously I'm waiting for a west coast bound boat. Hopefully in the next couple of days... anyone know how to figure out when the next boat is?

I'm not entirely sure how much it matters. I'm picking mine up in Tulsa, OK and they put it on a boat for Baltimore. I was expecting to see TX.

Good news Nelrock! Is that a K-Line boat? I kept waiting to show up on the WW website but my CA told me I was on the Bosporus Highway, a K-Line boat.

I don't think so...flagged out of Japan.

She is a K-Line boat, shown on page two of this document. They show estimated departure from Baltimore on the 11th. That should mean arriving in Baltimore Oct 10th but I suppose it could arrive early on the 11th and depart late on the same day...

Thanks for finding that...looks like the ship is headed to Galveston, arriving a week after Baltimore, on the 18th...it's prolly more likely that'll be where mine is dropped off.
Dang...that's 2 weeks

What does it say on your Vehicle Inquiry Report? It will give the port of entry code at the top. For example, mine shows Potr Loc: SSIPOA... I googled it and that is Brunswick GA. Does yours show Baltimore or Galveston?

I'll have to ask my CA for it...she just e-mailed that it left on 1 Oct aboard the Aegean Highway.

No worries. I didn't think BMW brought cars in through Galveston but i could be wrong. If they did, you'd think mine (headed to New Orleans) would have come through there as well but it was Brunswick.

Anyone get an update that their car is on the Courage, which was supposed to leave Bremerhaven yesterday? My car has been at the port since 9/25 so I figured it would be on that ship (which sails to Brunswick).

The 1-800 number is still telling me mine is waiting on a ship, so I'm curious if anyone else has found out theirs made it onto that ship. (Otherwise the BMWNA system hasn't been updated yet, which wouldn't surprise me.)

Phone and web say same thing to me...so if mine made it on a boat 1 Oct (arrived Bremerhaven 27 Sep)...I'd wager yours has.

Thanks Nelrock, that's helpful.

My guess is that BMWNA's phone/web system system is a little quicker to update for BMW-responsible updates (like production status) than 3rd party updates (like shipping). Hopefully it'll update tonight. I think I've bugged my salesman enough. ;-)

My car is at the VPC and the phone system still says awaiting transport...

Mine says the vehicle is in transit. What does that mean? It's been like that since my ED last week. I dropped it off on Sept. 27th to HARMS.

I just checked the 1-800 #. My car is in transit. Must have made it on one of the boats in the last few days. I'll have to call the dealer and figure out which boat. Mine completed production on 21SEP and made it to port 2 days later if that helps anyone.

Both the 800 # and the website just updated mine to enroute.
