Anyone on the Vessel TOPEKA?

My 2013 F10 (535xi) build was completed on July 4th and ended up on the vessel TOPEKA which is scheduled to arrive NJ on 7/25!

I suspect anyone with a build completed around the same time as mine will be on the same boat if you are located on the east coast

My SA did mention that since my boat is carrying one of the first batches of 2013 F10's on it, it could be delayed by EPA certification. Hopefully this won't be a problem.

I believe there are two other boats with M5's scheduled to hit the US Ports before the TOPEKA. Both the Talisman and Florida Highway, I believe, hit the US this weekend.

That is certainly good news for me. Hopefully all EPA certs. will be completed by the time my ship arrives so there isn't any delay at the NJ port.

You guys are so lucky. I am just waiting for my lowly 535 and the wait is already killing me. I can't imagine if i was waiting for a M5!

The Topeka should hit Canada by Sunday/Monday so we can use marinetraffic.com to track it again.

I was at a dealer this weekend, just killing time, and told me that they should see their M5's hit the showroom in the next two weeks...btw the same dealer that tried to sell me one, initially, for over US MSRP so I take it with a grain of salt.

If anyone on this thread has a car on the Talisman you can track your car through customs on the Wallenius website using the VIN as the cargo identifier.

Will be a good way to know when the cars clear a possible EPA quarantine.

You may already be doing this, but here are instructions which will enable you to track customs status on the car.

8. Track your car, if shipped by Wallenius Wilhelmsen, using the VIN #:
WBAWC73569E06XXXX
http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/index.jsp
€ Go to €œtrack and trace€ cargo section on the homepage, at the bottom right.
(as displayed June 2009, this function has changed location over the months)
€ Enter the VIN in the €œCargo ID€ field of the form
€ Hit €œTrack€
€ Status will be displayed once Wallenius has taken taken possession of the car and selected it for shipment.
€ It will tell you if the cargo is awaiting off loading, has been offloaded, has customs clearance, and has been released for transportation.
