That's no big deal. At least you weren't this guy

Yeah it's not too bad. I'm hoping they pop new wheels on though.

Man that would really suck to have crashed a new M3 .

Yeah I think marinetraffic.com stops tracking the ship once its past a certain point. Sailwx tracks ships across the Atlantic but their data is old or sometimes doesn't update:

http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shi...html?call=SIWB

The last time it updated Elektra's position was 7 days ago.



Also does everyones bmwusa page show the car as "EN Route?". Mine still says awaiting transportation.

Yeah I tried that callsign first and nothing shows up. We'll just have to wait a week before it shows up again at Halifax.

This marinetraffic link is with its older callsign so it has more information and pictures. Unfortuanately you can't track with it since it is "out of range" aka callsign doesn't exsist.

Good find on the aprs tracker though!

Damn that sucks. Longer truck ride back to Chicago . I wish mine went to Baltimore since my dealership is there. Not sure how BMW does the logistics of these ships...

I guess I'm on this ship as well. If docks on the 26th, how long to clear customs and get on a truck to the midwest? I would like to make the last track day for the year on the 5th of November. Any hope?

I'm shooting for this date too. I'm hoping my repairs get done asap though.

Customs can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. It all depends on many factors such as transit damage, ED damage (if any), # of cars in front of you, strikes at the VPC, etc..

EDIT: Some people are having issues getting to the tracking page. Follow these steps:

To get to the tracking site do this:
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.

Looks like we're halfway to Canada now.. only 4 more days. Two more days after that and we are at NY.

Can't wait. You guys have any mods planned?

Excellent! Yes on the mods- OEM Edition Series Grills and Gills (lens tinted by IND), Performance Front CF Splitters, Gloss Black Hood Vents, Clear Bra, Gloss Black M3 Trunk Badge, Carbon Fiber Leather Center Console to match dash via Ai in NY, IND painted reflectors, BMC air filter, Full Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust with Gloss Black tips, rear tints. Exhaust, tint, console will be done later. Most of the other stuff is here and waiting- just need the car!

David is working on the splitters and clear bra so they will be installed when delivered. Decided to pick up at Northwest instead of PCD. Will probably do the M School in the Spring. I really wanted to do the PCD but I think it will push my delivery back to possibly early December. I don't want to drive back 800 miles on summer tires in December- not worth the risk.

Damn going all out man. I'm just looking into clearbra and the IND cosmetic package. Is NorthWest doing the clearbra?? I didn't know they offered that. Is it 3M and what's the price?
