Who is on Elektra?

She departed Bremerhaven today, Feb 12, bound for Halifax, NY, and further down the east coast.

I am hoping some of us Canucks will be on this boat.

Here's to hoping we are on there.

I hope my car is on it! My SA told me my car will be in (Toronto) at the end of the month. I tried entering my VIN...but it says tracking information isn't available for my ID.

I'm on the Elektra

Anyone else, just make sure to use CAPS when you put your VIN into the WW tracking site.

My car is showing up now. With the ship arriving in Halifax on Feb21st, I have a hard time believing the car will be ready for pickup on Feb28th in Toronto (Durham BMW). Keeping my fingers crossed!

Does anyone have a CN account to track our cars on the train?

Hi all,

I was wondering how many Canadians that were on the Elektra have actually taken delivery at his point.

I've been waiting for what seems like a lifetime, and it STILL hasn't arrived at the dealer. I'm pretty sure I've seen photos of ElCapitan's new car. Curious if I'm the only one still waiting.

Odd that it would take 3 weeks to get from Halifax to Toronto, but it's my first BMW so perhaps this is normal?

Would love to hear.

I am STILL waiting for my car, my dealer (durham BMW) tells me it should be in today or tomorrow. I am quite annoyed by the whole situation as the car has been at the train yard in north Toronto since Mar1st, and my dealer is a 40 minute drive away from there! I know ians received his car on Monday (he posted pics in the canada forum)and his car was on the same train from halifax! He bought his car from another dealer in the GTA though...maybe that is the problem.

wouldn't you know it? About 5 hours after posting this, I get a call from the dealer telling me I can pick it up Monday.

I'm sure you'll have yours soon as well eyeteaguy.

My car was on the ELEKTRA. It is now sitting at the dealer. I am planning to pick it up this coming Tuesday after my M3 lip spoiler, OEM alarm, blacklines and euro xenon are installed.

Here some picture on my thread:

I was actually enjoying the wait this time and I had my E91 as a distraction. I got my M-Tech being put on it.

Be a little more patient, it will be yours soon.
