Vessel: Hudson Leader departed 1/16/08

Well, somebody's gotta start the thread.

So, who else here is on this ship going to Florida and California?

Woohoo! I'm here. Looks like the Hudson Leader is hitting Jacksonville, FL on Jan. 27th and then to Port Hueneme by Feb. 11th.
But they may be delayed a day or two due to some bad weather.

Who else is going crazy with this wait!?

My 328i Cv is also on the Hudson Leader, I hope the bad weather will not damage any cars on board like the one in Jersey...

I dropped my car off in Frankfurt on 12/28...

AAAAH! Don't tell me about bad weather!

I don't need anything else to obsess about...

I don't think there really is a way to track the NYK ships. The only way is to keep checking the port websites and see when the arrival is scheduled. I checked the Jacksonville Port, but they only list arrivals 24 hours out. Anyone else know a way to track it?

On Hudson Leader too...

My 335i Monaco Blue / Grey / Walnut / ZPP / ZSP / + is on the Hudson Leader too. Sadly, unlike a bunch of people here I did not do ED so I have never seen my baby in person and I am totally going waiting.

Glad to hear that "Our ship of dream(s)" is due in Jacksonville tomorrow (1/27/08) Then on to the canal and finally SD.

I plan on tracking on the AIS site referenced on the ship tracking thread sometime around Feb 1. Happy to post what I learn there here.

(I am using Mike A. @ Stevens Creek BMW and have been VERY pleased to date. Got a call that they expect the car to be ready for delivery ~2/15)

Once the car arrives at port, how long does it normally take to be ready for pickup. Also, my car needs an I drive update, should I tell them before my car comes in?

I'm on the Hudson Leader as well! ED with drop off on 11/30 - yes, it has been quite some time since I drove my baby - dropped off in Nice which contributed to the delay. I used Peter at Sonnen in San Rafael.

My car is a 328xi SW, Barbara Metallic Red, premium pkg., sports pkg. Beige Dakota leather, steptronic, Xenon, 17" performance tires.

ED was Thanksgiving Day and a thousand miles later dropped in Nice 11/30.

My dealer just gave me a tentative ready date of 2/19. I hope its closer to your date - start of a 3 day weekend.

Not wanting to rain on the parade here, because I've certainly waited long enough (11/30 drop-off). My more pessimistic representative (Sonnen in San Rafael) gave me this note:

Looks like the vessel will arrive the 12th [meaning Port Hueneme] (under normal weather) and due to the Euro origin the customs may take a bit longer than straight US deliveries...Should not take more than 10-15 days past the arrival of the car.

Interpreting this I should get my car between the 22nd and the 27th - I am resigned to getting it by March 1

My guy also said it gets to port about the 12th but I don't get the comment about the "Euro origin". Obviously, most of the BMW's come from Germany and I haven't seen any comments about this particular delay on any other threads. Let's hope your rep is wrong.

What he's talking about is Euro Delivery. He's intimating that if you do the ED then it will take longer to pass customs vs. if you simply ordered a new car from a dealer. It makes sense to me; I drove it and I had the opportunity to stash stuff in it...so, take more time looking through the car for my "stuff."

Ok, that makes sense...but not my problem.
