Just came across this thread - so cool you can track your car!

I found mine in the middle of the Atlantic ocean aboard the Don Juan. Now if I could just get a Google Earth real-time satellite image I'd be golden!

If you're on this week's voyage on the Don Juan, join our band of merry ship trackers over at http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12951 We've been tracking her rather obsessively since her departure

Obsessively? Speak for yourself there Mr. K!!! You've been pushing the envelope of sanity since you started that thread while the rest of us Don Juan lurkers wait (ad nauseam! ) for your latest reality tangent to bend...

Ordered mine on Feb 22nd. Called the 800 # today and its in Production, at the body shop, with an estimated completion date of March 2nd.
Anyone have any ideas how many stages there are to the Production?
Man I can't wait.

Here is my timeline:
12/20/05 - placed order
02/04/06 - scheduled for production
02/09/06 - awaiting transport
02/19/06 - en route
The dealer said it should be here in mid-march. I'm on the west coast.

Is yours at the port now? Mine is at the port and I'm hoping it gets on the INTEGRITY ship no Monday. Does it take half a month to go from Germany to SC by boat?

Over the weekend it was still Transported to Port of Exit. So I dont think it's there yet. Hopefully it will be at the port today or tomorrow.

I'm going crazy over here!!!!!! Help!!!

My 330i is scheduled to arrive at Point Hueneme (Oxnard) in 3/11 (per my BMW center). How accurate is the ETA given by the dealer (generally speaking)? My status on BMW's OC is still "en route". How can I pinpoint the exact location of the vessel that is carrying my vehicle? Anyone else expecting their car to arrive at this port in the next couple of days? At the very least, can someone provide BMW's 800 # so I can start asking some freakin' questions?!?! As you all can see, I am very impatient and need some closure on this matter! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Awaiting delivery

2006 330i Mystic Blue/sport package
ED 2/24/06
Dropped off at Harms office Vienna 3/1/06 early AM

According to the WW web site, its been booked but not yet at dock (3/14/06)!

Furthermore, site states ship will be UNDINE, last reported off cost of Vietnam Dec 15! I'm gonna go cry ...

Once it reaches US, its supposed to be going to NEAT/Jersey City. I don't get that, since TN is a lot closer to SC than NJ.

P.S. Bremerhaven's web site doesn't list UNDINE as expected at port in the next month. I hope I'm just using their web site incorrectly.

PPS I put down the deposit 12/2/05

Yes it's weird how all ED cars that would typically go to the SE processing center Carolina actually off-board in NJ instead.

The guide should be updated to include Harms as a potential tracking resource (although, it's unclear how happy they'll be if there is a large influx in calls from BMW customers). They can help with attaching a boat to a VIN and giving an expected ship arrival date. See the post here:

How do you track your car after it arrives at the destination port? Do you rely on your SA at this point?

They wont give me the production status number or tell me what stage it is in. Also the website is this animated thing with very little info. Is it true they will no longer give out the vehicle production status number?

Kinda BS about them not giving you a production number. Tell them you need the VIN so you can get an accurate quote from your insurance company!

25 Mar = Bought a car that was in transit already and not spoken for
27 Mar = Arrive in Port
05 Apr = OC enroute/800 At Port Awaiting Shipping Vessel
06 Apr = OC at VPC(14 Apr Estimated Delivery Date)/800 No Change

Did you try with the 1-800 number live person? Very often we just equate the process step with the status #...they don't tell you hey! your car is in status 152, they'll tell you is in the paint shop or something like that.
