You checked by VIN #? Checking my vin with WW shows its on the aida.

Checking bmwusa and 1800 says its still at port.

http://www.bmwblog.com/2009/07/14/ho...d-to-delivery/ has a good vin # explanation.

WBS stands for motorsport

Non-existent as far as I recall. Couldn't track my ship either once it got out of range of Southampton...

Not sure if they will keep tracking the entire voyage, but right now they have updates almost every hour

Awesome looks like we're one of the ships that voluntarily reports its position in the Atlantic. Let's hope Somalian pirates haven't learned how to use this system yet..

For some reason I cannot get into the tracking system to enter my VIN and verify that I'm on the Aida. Any tips on how to successfully do this? Maybe a link that actually works? TIA

www.2wglobal.com --> Customer Centre --> Track and Trace --> Enter your full VIN at the right most blank box "Cargo ID"

I can't access the page from Google Chrome on my Mac. Firefox works fine though.

If it says no records found, then you can start wondering if your car didn't make it on the boat...

Hope this helps
