The boat stops and offloads at several ports before it makes its way to CA

En route to US but my car gets dropped off in Baltimore. Unfortunately, west coast deliveries more than double ship transport time. Only way to avoid it is take PCD and drive it home.

I think I'm on the same ship, the "Cronus Leader," an agonizing 29 day boat ride to the west coast.

My M3 Coupe is en route now. It left Germany on the Pleiades Leader on 4/11, with an estimated shipping duration of 29 days. It should arrive in Port Hueneme on 5/10. Yeah, the shipping takes forever

Got an email from my CA that my car was on the boat to arrive in NJ on 5/16. I'm hoping it will be at my dealer within a week or ten days after that. My 1st BMW...from what I've read on this forum, I think driving this car going to be an awesome experience.

My dealer said car will arrive on 20th of week 2013(05/12 - 05/17) to California port...I drove M3 only 3 times before placing order...I was more passion driven for M3 than performance although its a benchmark for performance....

Wow, that sucks. Seems a lot of Northeast customers are having to wait at the port for a long time. I don't know what to make of it. I would think since adding Baltimore for mid=-atlantic and midwest deliveries, the northeast should be faster. Maybe they have diverted too many ships from the NJ port.

I would check with your CA to see what they have to say. Both our cars were at Bremerhaven together, no reason why I am almost to Baltimore and you are still there.

The only solace I can give you is getting the car will be sweeter now that you have had to wait and a month after you get it you won't even remember this pain.

Of course you will have PTSD when you have to order your next BMW.

The dealer felt confident that it would be on a vessel by this weekend. The Mignon departed on Friday. Using my VIN #, the track and trace on the WWL website shows no record of my vehicle. Perhaps there's a delay in updating the information or it's on a different vessel. Accordingly, if it still shows at the port of exit on Monday, the dealer will contact BMW NA.

I should've gone with PCD. Perhaps that would've improved my luck. Who knows. My concern is that amount of idle time and the potential increase risk of damage occurring. Also, I need the extra time to ensure the break-in miles are achieved prior to the weekend of June 28th. I have a driving event which I hoped to use the full RPM range.

I will be taking to the dealer tomorrow. Hopefully it is just a delay in the paperwork....hopefully.

At least your dealer is being helpful. I have seen other forum members suffer alone because their CA "forgot" about them after they took the order and deposit.

Don't worry about time and mileage. You'll have so much pent up emotion that you'll easily put on 1200 miles once you get it.

First its best if you read the sticky thread about tracking your bmw. It has everything you need to know.
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=805876

Now if your car is on a wallenius wilhelmsen boat then go to their tracking site and put your vin in the cargo id slot.
https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

It should tell you the name of the boat and also let you see its schedule for that particular trip.

Then you need to call your CA. They will know exactly what ship it's on.
