Week 31 build, hasn't left Germany yet...

My car was finished production at the end of July and at the port 2 days later. As of today it's still not on a ship. seems like longer than what most of you have said. Anyone else in the same boat, LOL

I'm in the same situation as well, for over two weeks now. Another member mentioned in a different string that it's possible some of the cars already shipped; however both website and calling robo-lady tell me the car hasn't left Germany yet. I'd love to know what's holding up the cars from getting on a ship...

Sorry, I was off on my date. I finished production August 3rd. So it's been at the port since the 4th or 10 days. Still seems unusual.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the ship to go from Germany to Oxnard California? Does it stop first on the east coast?

Thanks

If u go to the WW site u can look up all the boats leaving Bremerhaven and headed to your port, it'll also tell you all the stops and estimated eta. I used this to guess what boat I'd be on. Hope this helps.

Went to the WW site and it does not show me on the last ship, and if I'm reading it right, it says the next ship leaves in 10 days. That would mean my car sat at the port for 3 weeks. Is that even possible? Pretty crazy!

Check the vessels tracking cargo in about a day to two until your vin number shows up in the database. Bmw system takes an extra day or two after the vessels database update.

Hey CPIguy, mine arrived at the port on the 8th, after yours and is on a ship. It's not on a WW ship sovit wont show with a vin. Yours is probably on the same ship as mine. I called my dealer and they told me the name of the ship. It left Germany on the 15th, just left England and is headed now to Baltimore. The ship is the Dover Highway... Call your dealer, they can look it up!

My production ended August 7th and was placed on vessel Dover Highway on August 15th. Due into Brunswick, GA August 29th. My order was placed June 26th. I ordered an Individual paint and I've read that these get moved to the front of the line. Has anyone else in this thread done the same and has not been released to a vessel?

I'm reading that the cars that are at the port are to be released the 18th, but I've also read that BMW is waiting for a Sept 1st release. I hope you guys that have M5's at the port get the release soon for early pickup. I'm hoping that I don't have any delays.

Spoke to my dealer today and he swears that it's not on a ship and he desn't know why.

It so happens I went to the BMW show in Carmel, CA today. The main reason I went to the show was to see the new M5. Turns out they didn't have one at the show so I bitched and an executive from BMWNA came over and personally appoligized. I told him about my car and he offered to do a little research to find out where it is. He actually gave me his cell number and email address. Very cool guy.

We'll see

Have not heard back from BMW Exec yet, but the dealer called and my car left on August 17th on the CYGNUS LEADER which is an NYK ship.

Does anyone know how to look up schedules for an NYK ship. Supposedly it's due in port on Sept 15th.

Anyone else on this ship?
