On The Courage

Dropped off The Beast Thursday 10/12 late afternoon with an overflowing parking lot in front of Login/out Munich Airport. Just looked and saw I'm on the Courage! What a name! Scheduled to depart out of "Bimmer heaven" today and make it to Brunswick by 11/7 ... PDC delivery may, just may be by Thanksgiving, Yahoo!!

Congrats Gene! Don't worry, the later drop off only has you arrived two days later than the ship I am on. Now you can watch the boat shaped pixels move on the screen as well...

Yep, already watching the pixels and raising my expectations with every blip forward! I'm surprised I was only 2 days behind you ... maybe PCD at the same time is not out of the question!

I was on Courage. My car got dropped off in Baltimore now waiting for a ride to NYC. I'm hoping to have it this week.

Mine left port November 9th according to my dealer. However, I asked him what ship it is on and they didn't know. Any way to find out?

Go to the BMW Logistics Providers web page; Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics(www.2wglobal.com), under Customer Centre, select "Track and Trace." Enter your VIN into the Cargo ID. Assuming Wallenius and Wilhelmsen are handling your vehicle, you should get a ship and an itinerary (select the hyperlinked Voyage Number). Good luck, it is a painful wait that will occupy your attention on a regular basis between now and delivery!

Thanks for the info, I wasn't able to find it though using my VIN...so maybe it was shipped through a different company? I know what you mean though, I placed my order back on August 10th...of course they didn't start production of the vehicle until October 26th though since there were several people ahead of me in line at my local BMW dealer.

For some strange reason my car is still stuck at the VPC. It's been there over a week. I received my car after the oil pump recall and it's VIN was never on the list. It was scheduled to arrive two days ago on Monday.

What about the rest of you from the Courage? Anyone get there car?

Similar discussion as mine which was on the Turandot.
Seems there is an M5 purgatory for select vehicles at customs.
Let us know if you (or your CA) gets a meaningful response from the VPC/Customs.

My car cleared customs in a day. It's just been sitting at the VPC. The work order started last Wednesday. I can't get a straight answer from special sales or my CA as to what the hold up is.

i3/Johntomferg ... that is brutal, sorry to hear you both have not seen your cars yet. It probably doesnt help you but I recieved my car via the dealership on Monday of this week. It seem to move quickly through Customers (ie., W&W site showed "Delivered") and then the VPC was an in/out and ready for truck transport (sat from Thursday last week through Saturday). My car was on the Courage, no pump issue. I was originally scheduled to go the PDC but couldnt wait any longer since I heard rumors of long que times at the PDC, thus I changed the routing to the dealership. I wonder if it is the PDC delivery holding you both up?

Thanks efm, I was curious to see if anyone else received their car. I was in the same boat as you regarding the PCD. I had my CA cancel my request after I heard about the long queues. Hopefully I get a response back today from special sales.

Have fun with your car!
