Elektra Roll Call (part two)! 10/13/2010 :)

Who's on it? My VIN just popped up on the tracking site!

Check here (put VIN in Cargo ID field):

http://www.2wglobal.com/www/customer...LaunchPage.htm

If the above link doesn't work:
1. Go here: http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp
2. On the right hand side, under "Track & Trace" click on the "All users" button.
3. If that doesn't work then try a different browser. Mine works using firefox and chrome.

According to EH Harms and my lovely wife (who works for WWL ) I'm booked on the Elektra! Due to arrive in Newark on Oct. 26. However she said the current status says "booked" and not "received" which means my car hasn't been received on the vessel yet. The system could have also not reflected the change yet, and it could be very well on the vessel. I'll know for sure tomorrow. Praying I'm on the Elektra.

Mine says "BOOKED" and then says "RECEIVED AT TERMINAL." That probably means I'm in the ship right? You got yours from David too correct?

Yes, you should be on the vessel. Mine was just updated to "received at terminal" which means I should be good to go also

Once the vessel leaves port we should be able to get a firm confirmation we are on board.

Yes- got mine through David- super happy with him.

Are you doing a PCD? I plan on it unless my car really gets hung up at Customs/VPC or the PCD is backed up for scheduling.

Nice!

I'm doing a normal delivery. Can't take the time off to do a PCD since I just took a couple days off for ED.

She just told me unless they "forget" (unlikely) our cars on the dock, we're on the Elektra! I've already put in a request for calm seas............

Excellent. BTW I did see pictures from your ED and the car looks fantastic. I've yet to see LeMans in person unfortunately.

Now the ship stalking/VPC delays begin. It doesn't help that my car needs small repairs

I never would have volunteered the fact that your wife works for WW. Now you'll be inudated with tracking requests. Thw WW traking system is far from accurate. According to my dealer, my car is on a ship scheduled to arrive on Thursday by the WW site still does not recognize my VIN or the bill of lading number. For my last Euro Delivery, the WW site never showed my car being discharged and my car before that was damaged in shipment.

I wouldn't even ask. I think she already hates me and this car. The last thing she would do is start tracking more M3s!

If anyone needs to figure out how to track their car/ship, take a look here first:

I'm pretty sure the car finished production Sept 19/20th. It was dropped off at HARMS in Munich on the 29th.

Hmm I see, my car finished this past Thursday (the 7th) and was released to carrier on the 8th. Its awaiting transport now, I wonder if I'll be on Elektra or Dream Diva. Mine isn't showing up on the WW tracking site yet

Hey Anup, when does the Dream Diva leave and when is it scheduled to arrive on East Coast? Is it the next East Coast bound ship after Elektra? Not sure which mine will get on... finished production a couple days ago.

Here is the schedule for the next few East Coast Deliveries. Dates are in European form, i.e. DD/MM/YYYY.

Small update for anyone who is tracking:

The WW tracking site updated the car's status to "LOADED ON VESSEL."

Send a message via AIM to BALLAJL15
I ordered a 335i and it arrived at the port of exit on Oct 6th... I checked my vin on the link and it says no record found... is it safe to assume I did not make the Elektra?

Sometimes the site is slow to update or the site just won't update. Some people never had their cars show up in the system.

Your best bet is to ask the dealer. I personally thinkt hat your's will be on the next ship since it's only been 1 week since your car finished production.
