Help Me Predict My Pickup Date!!

Hey Fellas, I have been watching the forums like a hawk and trying to figure out when my car will be here, but I would like some additional brainpower behind this if you don't mind.

Timeline:
7/17 - Vehicle went into production
7/25 - Projected completion date (based on automated system)

Hypothesis
Based on a few of the other folks that are en route or already docked, I am anticipating the car being at the port waiting for a vessel by 7/27 (2 days to be moved from the factory to the port), is this reasonable?

Looking at the vessel schedule, I would be slated for the Fidelio which will depart on 8/1 or on the Courage which will depart on 8/8, any feedback here?

The voyages are stated to be 17-19 days in duration, but it looks like bmill, Alan I., Lizard and a few others are on faster moving vessels and arriving in ~13 days, am I reading this right? (I'm guessing my car will be going to Brunswick, GA)

That would put the car here 8/20 or 8/25 and I'm guessing the EPA certifications will be done by then given I'm in the "second wave" of F10 M5s to hit the US. How long does it take to hit the VPC from the Brunswick port? How long can I expect the car to sit at the VPC and then how long to my dealer in KY? Is it fair to assume 7-10 days from the time the boat docks to the time it hits my dealer?

I recognize there are a number of questions and what-if's, but your help would be greatly appreciated - I'm starting to obsess over this (if you can't already tell)!!!!!

Thanks in advance!

So here is what I know.
Make car took 11 or 12 calendar days to build.
About 4 days from end of production until the boat sailed.
14 days port to port, but it is still not unloaded.
Production began 6/22 at U.S. port 7/23 (but not unloaded).

That is where my experience ends..... So far.

Here is where i am at.

7/16: Vehicle goes in to production.
7/23: Now my status is in the paint shop, but i have an estimated completion date of 7/23 which is today. Confused on whether the automated system is accurate.

It's usually about 48 hours behind. That's what my dealer told me

We will probably be on the same boat...I hope!

Mine is already at the port waiting for the vessel since July 19th. Can you check which is the next boat & date leaving for Baltimore ?

Looks like the Tiger is set to sail on 7/28 with an expected arrival of 8/9. You can check it here, http://sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSchedules/countryList.do.

Pretty surprising is how much shorter the boat ride is to Baltimore vs. Brunswick, 6 days on average.

Here's my summary to date:

7/05 Production started
7/12 Production completed
7/14 At Port awaiting vessel
7/21 Aboard the vessel Integrity
8/03 Anticipated arrival in Baltimore

I think the major delay is at the outbound port from Bremerhaven. Looks like it takes a little bit of luck in terms of timing to get on a boat, mine was at port for 7 days, I know some waited a little less. FYI, there was one boat that was leaving 7/19 that I thought I would catch (since my car was at port already on 7/15), but I didn't make that one and caught the next on 7/21. Also, the telephone system was 72h behind and the online tracking was not updated yet. Hope this helps!

I hope mine is also on Integrity , but doesn't look like it made the cut, otherwise my CA would have informed me by now. So the next would be Tiger on 7/28. So my car will sit for 9 days

None of this is doing any good for the fact that I'm without a car and driving my brother's 911....pretty soon I'm going to just buy one and cancel my M5 order!!!!!

Called this morning and found out my vehicle is being transported to the port of exit. Not sure what boat it would be on, and how long it might take to reach Mia.

Guy's you really need to get your VIN# and go to the shipping company web site to see if youe car is on a boat.

Do not, I repeat do not trust the phone system.

As of now it says mine is enroute... I think you are correct about the 72h delay
