I am hoping this isn't right and that they stop on teh east coast first, because travel time would be alot longer. According to the guide, cars for the eastern half of the country should come over on the W&W line.

I'm in St. Louis, and my car is currently awaiting "deportation" according to BMW OC, so I am assuming we'll be traveling together.

Do you have any specifics on the ship? When/where is it docking in the US, and when is your final delivery date at the dealer?

The dealer told me that 4 days before bmw web site.
My ship is Franconia k-line that left Bremerhaven on 9/28.
It is an Atlantic shuttle route heading to Charleston.
It should arrive ~ Oct 10-12 in Charleston. My dealer told
me that it takes another 2 days to get to Chicago.
We will see....
The web link I am using are:
