Post Bremerhaven to NY vessel schedule (Wallenius Wilhelmsen line)

So I did some research on the schedule from Bremerhaven to NY, since my M5 didn't literally want to be the last one on the previous boat and decided to be the first one at the port since the last ship left (yes its been sitting at the port for days unfortunately) and pulled up the following schedule. Looks like itll be on the vessel tomorrow. I guess I cant blame it for wanting to be first (at least in the boat) and wanting to be on a fancy boat name - Don Juan - . Hopefully they will have the previous 2 ships cleared out that arrived already and have emissions testing done, so for the rest, here is the schedule

Origin Port Departure Destination port Arrival Vessel Voyage Transit Days
BREMERHAVEN 25/07/2012 NEW YORK, NY 08/08/2012 DON JUAN CA230-DOJ 14
BREMERHAVEN 01/08/2012 NEW YORK, NY 16/08/2012 FIDELIO CA231-FDE 15
BREMERHAVEN 11/08/2012 NEW YORK, NY 23/08/2012 ASIAN VISION CA232-AVI 12
BREMERHAVEN 15/08/2012 NEW YORK, NY 30/08/2012 TOPEKA CA233-TOP 15
BREMERHAVEN 23/08/2012 NEW YORK, NY 07/09/2012 TURANDOT CA234-TUR 15

At least the ship seems to be on time and hopefully theyll be on it tomorrow. Im suprised that your car has been sitting there for a couple of weeks, because my car finished production on july 13 and was at the port by july 18 I think. The production car that was in front of me made the ship so not sure why yours would be there for a few weeks. You sure that it didnt arrive yesterday by any chance and you havent gotten the right tracking info?

Shipping Question

Will my M5 get off the boat in NY and go to the VPC in NJ, then be transported to my dealer or will it stay on the boat down to my local port (Charleston), go to the VPC in Greenville and then go to my dealer from there?

I think the M5 will get off the boat either in Jersey or Brunswick, GA. Your CA should be able to tell you which port he selected when entering your order. I believe it goes through the VPC, at the Port, and then on to the dealer. Not 100% sure if this is accurate but from what I have been able to read over many threads this should be somewhat close.

So far there is notification for me that the car is on the ship yet. Dealer couldnt confirm it, the website or the phone number. The ship has left the port, I am hoping that the data is delayed and it might take a day or two until the systems update.

not yet.. the grill inserts were 160 from the dealer for an x5.. you have to go after market for the sides... i was thinking about coating the 20's as well but it is something i can do later.. i'll see when the car is delivered. (if it ever is)

I did today and its either that its not on there, or the system is delayed. At this point I am assuming that its still left behind at the port but will see.
