Never heard of that ship.. It could be Don Pasquale if you are shipping out of Bremerhaven but that boat doesn't leave until 10/26.

Well your car was made in the Regensburg facility. You can see this plant here

http://www.bmw-plant-regensburg.com/.../en/index.html

Being that it is Germany and not South Africa (that's why I wanted the plant code from your vin) it definately went to Bremerhaven for shipment. What does the 800 number tell you when you call? In transit or still waiting?

Well, the 800 number today still says waiting , and my CA sent me an e-mail just today saying "my records say the car is being put on a boat today 10/18/06 ( Dong Fang Gao ) estimated crossing time 15 days"

I found it!!!! It is the Dong Fang Gao Su like your CA said and it is a KLine ship which is not the norm for shipping from Bremerhaven. It leaves today, stops at Southampton on the 20th, stops at Baltimore on the 31st and then Charleston on 11/2.

No problem. I just used the info that was in the Ultimate Tracking Guide sticky to find this stuff out.

This is also my first BMW and am looking forward to zooming around with all that power that the new 335i has. Unfortunately I won't be getting mine until the latter half of November. The wait is killing me.

Yeah, I am on board the Bellona. It's not expected to dock in California until 11/9 so I have a wait ahead of me.

Vancouver is nice. It's beautiful but it does rain more then I like. I moved up from California and although the weather is nice down there it was way to expensive to live.
