Is the Sirius Leader on schedule?

I've had no luck at the NYK website attempting to track the Sirius Leader, whose ETA in Port Hueneme is 9/28. I imagine there are several of us with cars onboard that ship. Anyone know the status?

I HATE the waiting game!!

Sirius Leader

I'm also waiting for Sirius Leader. My dealer told me the ship left on 9/5 with a estimated arrival of 9/25. I have not gotten any updates since then....I also know it usually takes atleast 25-35 days so i dont think the number they gave me was accurate. You cant track the ship on NYK website. I've been looking at the San Diego Port Website which schedules ship arrivals..so far its not listed so i've been looking everyday. Here's the website...http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/

Goodluck!

I just moved to Cali so currently im driving a jeep grand cherokee car rental. I've been here about a month and my car was supposed to arrive by August 14th but some issues were run into along the way so they had to re-do the one i ordered. Back home i had a 2005 X5. So its not my first BMW but it is my first small car. Im getting a 325xi fully loaded. What about you?

HaHa. I agree! I've been waiting since June. What makes it even worse is i coulda had my car last month so now ive got to wait even longer!! I shoulda waited for a 07 but i needed a car now and now meant back in july so they werent bringing in the new ones yet. I just hope our ship is incredibly fast bc i cant wait to get rid of this rental car. I almost got the Alphine White but everyone told me i'd have to clean it more often. I love it tho! I see it on the road all the time. I opted for a Jet Black w/ Gray Leather.

You opted for Jet Black because you thought White was more difficult to keep clean? Oops. I hope you REALLY love black, because that color is truly a labor of love. It is without question the most difficult-to-maintain color. Of course, the tradeoff is that clean, detailed Jet Black is awsome to look at.

White cars are actually not so bad. Titanium Silver is probably the easiest BMW color to keep clean.

At any rate, you've sure waited long enough. I'd be climing the walls of a padded cell! But it's almost over.....I think we'll both have our cars in a little over two weeks.

I want my car now!

Your right black does look really nice when its clean. Oh well. I guess i just like cars in black more then white. So have you gotten any updates from your client advisor? Mine seems to update me once i contact him for a update. Im just hoping those storms in the east arent delaying us any longer. I dont think i can wait any longer!!! I'd love to hear if you get any updates.

I'm on that ship, ill let you guys know what my sales lady says about the ETA.
I just sent her an email asking cause I'm currently in a little predicament; My loan with an EXCELLENT interest rate is going to expire reeeal soon, perhaps before my car arrives so I don't know what I should do.

[edit] She confirmed that the ETA is 9/28 as well. She said sometimes they show up early though so I kinda got my fingers crossed.

I was wondering, which dealers did you guys buy your cars from?

I think I found your ship!!! The picture below is from www.aislive.com taken at 10:07 a.m. (Eastern Time) on September 20, 2006. The website is about one hour delayed. The picture is from the Panama canal. Your ship should be through the canal today. I hope this is helpful.

The NYK ships do not normally report on www.sailwx.info if that is what you were checking.

NYK ships don't usually show up on sailwx.com, I estimate PL will be through the Canal on the 28th...

Yeah, the only way to really track the NYK ships is to register (its free) with www.aislive.com and estimate where the ship should be and when. Then track that area within ais. You might want to start tracking New York now to see if Pegasus Leader goes through NYC in the next couple of days. I am guessing it would be 4-5 days down to the canal.

Pegasus Leader's next stop is Jacksonville and should be there around the 24th/25th...I found this out when checking on its arrival/departure in Southampton.

You can check this site for info on arriving ships in Jacksonville:
