I know its hard to guess this one, but what do you guys think?

My car got to the port (Bremerhaven) on March the 1st, I'm assuming I'm supposed to look at ships leaving for Charleston? (Since im in Atlanta??? help ?) if so, theres a ship scheduled to leave on the 6th, and the next one after that is the 13th....think i'll make the 6th? or do you guys say the 13th? or perhaps one after that?I'm getting really antsy about this!...and again, am i supposed to be looking at Charleston bound ships or somthing else??

Your build sheet has your destination port on it. You can search on the WW site (http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/index.jsp, then cargo tracking, auto tracking). Type in your VIN...a day or so after your vehicle departs the port your VIN should show cargo tracking information, including your destination port also. Before your VIN works, you can go to the voyage schedule page on this website. It asks you for departure (Bremerhaven) and destination (Charleston) ports. Select that and it will show you a list of voyages to/from those ports. Once your VIN activates in the tracking page you will see which ship you are on.

I'm on the Courage heading for SC on the 7th!

Seriously, I believe Romulus was guessing your car would be at your dealer on March 29th.

My guess is you'll be leaving port on the ship tomorrow. Realize, however, your VIN won't bring up any confirmation of same until a couple of days have passed, so don't dispair if you can't get your shipping information to show on W&W's tracking site for awhile. Keep plugging it in, and it will show eventually.

Mine got to port on a Friday. There was a ship leaving on Sunday and it did not make it on. Instead, it left on the next ship which was Wednesday. When talking to BMWNA they told me that a week to a week and half is typical time at port before getting on a ship.

My car spent 10 long days at port. However, I was able to get on the Don Juan with a bunch of fantastic shipmates so it made the wait worthwhile.

Perhaps some have had to wait as long, but mine (recently) was at Bremerhaven for only 4 days when it set sail, and another "shipmate" was in port for only 3 days...oh, and I see another "shipmate" (no_exit - btw, hello!) did have to wait for quite some time. Regardless, don't sweat it. The time spent waiting will be worth it when you finally take delivery! I'm only a couple of days and counting until I take mine!!
