Anyone else on the the Turandot?

Expected port departure of Oct 17.

I confirmed with shipping company that this is my carrier. (I was an Oct 8 drop off in Munich.)

I think I might be on the Turandot but it's not showing up in the tracking... we dropped 2 ED's off in Amsterdam on 10/2. My Girlfriends car is showing up as on the ship but mine isn't for some reason. Should I be concerned?

Also my friend dropped his m3 off in Paris on 10/5 and his is on the same ship...

Congrats, you are on your way! I dropped off on Oct 12th ... no ship yet of course, we'll see who gets their pick up at the PDC first!

I drove in on the Decatur 200 this morning, and I was already considering my disappointment with the American driving style before the car gets back.

Hopefully we'll end up at the PDC together - that would be a fun experience.

My car has been at port since 10-9. I assume this is the one going to NY. How did you confirm that your car was going to be on this ship. There is another ship I believe leaving two days later that gets in two days earlier.

I just emailed the lady at the drop off company and she provided me the information directly.

I am on the Turandot. Waiting for my MCB/SS to get here in NY. I'm dying, I want to get some miles in before the snow starts.

Latest update from BMW NA

Jersey City Vehicle Distribution Center
• These facilities are currently without power and will remain
closed, Wednesday, October 31. Utilities are working to restore
power, however, they are unable to determine when power will return
due to the widespread affects of the storm.
At least out cars safe and sound on the boat. Hopefully no cars at the VDC have suffered damage (as most cars are in a parking structure/garage only a few should have been exposed to the elements) .
Also the folks from the VDC have likely other things on their mind than our cars and I hope they and their families are safe ! we'll get our cars eventually and still have plenty time to drive them.

Metal can always be replaced.
