So who is waiting on the Patriot or Turandot?

Patriot leaves on 1/17 gets to NY on 2/2
Turandot leaves on 1/19 gets to NY on 1/29 (fast!!).

The wait is going to kill me I'm sure. Must take solace in my bottle of Beefeater

Very good. Of course my friends and family think I have totally geeked out - looking for other 'shipmates' but this is quite exciting

I've been waiting since the 6th, hopefully I'll get on the courage.

My 330xi finished production on Jan-10 and has been waiting for a ship since Jan-12 (Thurs). Based on everyone's past experience my best guess is my car will be waiting a week, which would put me on the Patriot or Turandot as well.

I have all sorts of scenarios laid out in my iCal calendar (Mac OSX application) detailing when I could potentially get my car based on which ship I get on.

My wife thinks I've lost my mind. She was getting kind of annoyed when I'd come bursting in the door after getting home from work exclaiming "I've got GREAT NEWS!!!". She'd get excited and ask what and I'd say "My CAR IS IN THE PAINT SHOP"... or whatever stage it was in. She just rolled her eyes.

I also think my current E46 is getting jealous. Yesterday the turn signal bulb went out. Two days ago it was the left high beam.

Yup. I hope I'm on the Patriot although it would have left by now and my VIN is not on it.

Someone needs to invent a teleporter!

Back to my gin bottle.

My car was also finished and waiting since the 12th. As I see it, I need to be on the Turandot, Atlantic Concert, or Maersk Tide to have delivery here in N.J. by Feb 15th. I called BMWNA and I was told to call my dealer from now on as the dealer has all the tracking necessary from there on in. BMW said they are done tracking at the port and the dealer now takes over. I called my dealer today.....waiting for a call back.

Give it a couple of days after boarding a ship. You could be already on a ship, but it's just not yet showing up

I am good on olives, but I am low on gin.

Steve.....I'm sure that you and I are on the Patriot. I checked with BMW and I left the port........that means our cars are on the same ship. Our cars have travelled together and most likely were built at the same time. I'm in N.J., so I should have my car probably 5 days after it docks in N.Y. I'm still listed as awaiting transport, but when I called the 800# I was told that it left for the USA!!

My car is booked on the Turandot, and will get picked up in Zeebrugge on 1/23. I dropped it off in Paris on 1/9. Here is the ship:

Yup, got confirmation from my SA last night.

Patriot it is. WW doesn't seem to have a picture of it.

I have confirmed this morning, my VIN is on the Patriot. I cannot track our ship. I am using the link below, and searching by ship name, but I cannot find its location. Are you guys able to see our boats location?

No. That site relies on the ship in question calling in a weather report. It is not mandatory.
