Almost to the Caribbean, I'm thinking sometime tomorrow or late Sunday early monday.

after it passes the canal on the 3rd it's a straight shoot to Port Hueneme, I'm hoping the prep center can have her done and to the dealer by the 16th!

Almost to Panama! Gonna be a tough one to catch on camera as it's probably going to be about 10-12 hours from now that it gets there, gonna be late here and dark in Panama.

We'll see if my super stalking abilities pay off or not this time

I found out my wagon is on the Turandot with scheduled NY Port arrival on 6/14. I'll have to see when I can pick it up... Had to order from Prestige in NJ and I'm in Boston.

Getting closer!

Missed the passage through the Panama Canal, just was too late when she sailed through... Oh well, at least she's in the Pacific on the way up to Cali - AIS doesn't work until the boats in San Diego, so I'll try and pick her back up around the 10th or 11th.

Getting so close, I can not wait! My closet and back office are overflowing with parts, wheels, tires, etc... and LTBMW needs to get my Suspension and Exhaust on my car and not taking up space at the shop!

Tires on the fround

My E92 Coupe is sitting on the dock in Baltimore. Thing is she sailed through Tropical Storm Beryl.

Awaiting news of potential damage.

Wish I could trustmthe dealership.

So I called BMW this morning as I do every morning and it still said at the dock awaiting a boat.. and since the schedule shows they only have one boat every week (Wednesdays) that leaves the dock I was a little . I figured it'd be a long shot but I put the VIN into the Wallenius & Wilhelmse website and vuala:



A few clicks on http://www.marinetraffic.com/ and:



I don't know what's worse; waiting 2 months for the car or having the technology to track it every second of the day.. hopefully only 3 more weeks until I can finally drive it!

Well as of 25 hours ago she was just off the coast of San Salvidor.

sailwx.info hasn't had an update for over a day now, although I was surprised a bit when it popped up on the pacific side, the last car didn't show back up until San Diego.

Only 4 1/2 days until she docks! Time seems to be going even slower now that it's getting close

The Coupe arrived yesterday and is sitting in the garage.

I am quite surprised it handles so much better than our 2008 335i sedan. They have identical wheels and tires.

I was expecting essentially identical handling and power. Power seems the same to me. The coupe is much sharper and more immediate than the sedan.

Regards,

CraigB

Congrats man!!

Ya the coupe really is night and day from the sedan. I drive my friends '08 328 sedan all the time and was always amazed how much different my '09 coupe handled.

Jealous you're already in the new ride, but hopefully it'll only be a week or so until I take delivery.

Enjoy!!

Thanks Man,

I appreciate the info. Hope your ride gets there quickly; the wait is a pain.
I was somehow lucky on the delivery, 5 weeks from order to arrival.

Man I was sweating bullets when my car carrier sailed through a freaking tropical storm (Beryl). No harm done.

Luck to you,

CraigB

The Faust is just off the coast of Encinada Mexico, almost in US waters!!

250 or so more miles and she'll be docked. This will be the longest week EVER.

Faust docked yesterday afternoon and she's already on her way up to Canada, so the new car is on American soil, no doubt at the prep center.

This is the worst part, the VPC is like a black hole... no way to figure out when she'll be ready, just gotta wait for that call from my SA...

Fingers crossed for this Saturday

Anticipation overload here.

I know she's somewhere either at the VPC or on the way to the dealer.

Every time my phone rings I jump about 4 feet hoping it's BMW.

Uggggg, so close!

So close, SA said I *might* be able to pick her up Sunday if all goes well. That'll be 3 days at the VPC and a day for shipping / dealer prep.

That's great news!

My E91 got into port two days ago and my SA called yesterday saying that the projected date it'll be at the dealer is 6/25 which is about 10 days to get from the NYC Port to a dealer 40min away in northern NJ.... Must be a long line ahead of it at the VPC.

I'm really getting antsy. It's been 8.5 years since my last ordered car and the wait is killer. There's all this plotting for mods and road trips. Fun though!

Oh my god, at the dealership signing the paperwork but I can't pick the car up until tomorrow night, got to walk around her and look inside but it's not prepped yet so tomorrow it is...

Sooooooo close, she looks absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to drive her home tomorrow!

Amazing how Beskone had his car docked in the US on the 11th and at the dealership all the way in Canada by the 15th, yet yours took 10 days to go less than an hour, that's disturbing. Mine is on the Asian King boat, just docked in Halifax, due to arrive in NY/NJ tomorrow and Im in CT, based on your story I fear it won't be in my hands for another 2 weeks.

Saw the car in person yesterday but the service department is closed on Sundays so I have to wait until tonight to drive her home.

She looks AWESOME though, can't wait to get out of work and get down to the dealership.

LTBMW appointment booked for Saturday morning, other bits going on in the garage after work this week.

So EXCITED!!

Well guess I was wrong in assuming. My car arrived in the NY/NJ dock late Tuesday night the 19th and my dealer just called me to say it just arrived in CT. I'm going Saturday to pick it up.

And I'm in Los Angeles California BTW. Dealer is only about 75 miles from the VPC

Car is SWEET though, can't wait to bolt all the goodies on this Saturday.
