SC. I thought NY seemed more practical given my proximity to both locations, but I'm not the one considering the monetary aspects of BMW's affairs. Ahhh...what's a few extra days added to my wait?

There's only one way to be sure ... Quick someone, give them a call!!!....or Fax or Email TELEX ... whichever works. Tell them, there's a nice $20 bill if they get here in 5 days ...



One of these INMARSAT numbers should work....

edit: its the second listing ... D J is registered in Sweden

To contact an Inmarsat terminal by phone, fax or telex, you need to dial: the international dialling code + Inmarsat satellite code + Inmarsat mobile number

Damn, I missed the boat. According to OC, my car has been produced but awaiting transport. Anybody have any idea how long before they a stock a new ship and set sail???

It also looks like the Don Juan crashed into the Lyndhurst?? HA! God I hope not

gdnyc: Are you sure you missed the boat. OC and the 1-800# are notoriously slooowww to update/reflect the latest information. You should contact your CA for the latest/detailed information. Ask for a print screen off his DCS for full shipping details.

If you did miss the Don Juan, check out Bremerhaven's schedule: http://www.dbh.de/index.php?id=151 ... just punch in your port and range of dates, vessel is auto/vehicle carrier ... it'll pull up the schedule so you can anticipate which vessel your car might catch. Good luck...

I did, some Swede named Lars picked up the phone ... apparently, as they were leaving Southampton, they realized that the rear hatch doors had not been secured, consequently a single e90 matching the description (325i / BR / Step / Power Seats / Black - Aluminum Trim) rolled off into the English channel ... so they had to redock to assess their losses ...


Just kidding, my friend ... I would never wish that on a fellow e90post'er.... Cheers...

Seriously, has anyone ever called the boats...what would one say?? ... "WTF you're going the wrong way!!" or "Get your asses back on the boat..." or...

Oh the beer's gone....how'd you figure my car got on the boat so quickly... That's the whole idea, that's why I ticked that option (option code VPP - pronounced Vee Pee Pee ) on the build sheet ... it's more value for money than the sat prep option... Ask your friendly BMW CA for more details ...

Are we anxious or what? ;)

Ok...figured I'd waste some of my energy wondering why our tug is stuck in Southampton, and find some tidbits...

I'm guessing, based on the AISLive info, and map below, that our tug is docked in either berths #38 or #39 of the Test Pier. Here's my tidbit offering:

"In 1966, Queen Elizabeth opened a new passenger and cargo terminal at Berths 38 and 39 and it was soon named after her."

How about that? A famous dock for our little tug to enjoy while we grow ever increasingly curious about her status! Maybe the DJ has a flat tire, and there isn't a runflat in stock anywhere nearby!

Fletch!

It gets curious and curiouser ... the D J's earlier position at Berth 35 (the other side of the quay is the designated berth for car carriers. The even have a huge multi-storey parking structure to hold cars prior to loading.



The D J's current position i.e. berth 38/39 is the official Passenger terminal for the QE2. Whats our specialized auto cargo carrier doing in a passenger terminal???

Berth 38/39 QE2 Passenger Terminal
