(as displayed June 2009, this function has changed location over the months)
• Enter the VIN in the “Cargo ID” field of the form
• Hit “Track”
• Status will be displayed once Wallenius has taken taken possession of the car and selected it for shipment.
• You will then know the ships name.

once you know that then go here

Search by Vessel Name, Port, or Ocean Area.

I never thought this day would come.My M3 started production today
This was told to me by the CA. It also shows up on the OC. The expected completion date according to the CA is Sep 21.

Eisenb11, hang in there! i am sure your M3 will go into production soon. A few things I (and others) have found helpful:
1. Get a definite answer from the CA regarding the production status.
2. If things are still iffy talk to the Manager.
3. You can always talk to the BMWNA agent (800 number) and ask for production details.

The worst part of the wait is when your vehicle is already complete. Somewhere out there (in Germany) my car exists, but I have to wait for it to get here.

I see your point. How long does it usually take to take to get shipped after production is complete? Once aboard we should at least be able to track it. However, it might take light years for my car to reach SLC (neither east coast or west coast). I am assuming that they will ship the car to the west coast and then to SLC.

BTW, my car is MY2011 e90.

mine finished production on the 3rd
and the boat took off on the 10th
so a week total
but it depends on the boat shcedule
if your car is done one day after a boat leaves
your car might have to wait till another boat is due to leave

My 2012 is headed for the west coast on the Platinum Ray. It looks like it left Bremerhaven on the 10th.

Mine showed up yesterday. I think they finally got the 2012 issues on the OC website fixed.

Of course, the status that it shows me on the website is the same as the phone one - "order is in, nothing more"

My car is in for service today, maybe I can catch my CA when I drop by later today to pick it up.

I finally got my ship's name... It's called the "Florida Highway." It gets to Baltimore on the 20th and it takes another 3-5 days to get to Charleston, SC. And then I have to still wait over a month for PCD (Nov 1st), this sucks
