Not To Get Into a Philosophical Discussion But...

At what production phase is a BMW actually "born"

My car has been sitting at the port since the 18th of Jan. Today, I went to the dealer and my CA told me that my car hasn't been assigned a ship yet. The US port of entry for my car is supposed to be Charleston. Does anyone have an idea which ship will be departing Germany for Charleston next? I ordered my car on the 21st of Dec and the wait has been excruciatingly painful. Help please!!!

All of you are so lucky, been at the dock since last Thursday and no ship in sight heading this way. I pulled up some info and a ship is to be here around the 8th. Any one have a car coming from South Africa? The only good thing that it is sunny and warm so the car is not in the cold.

You can go here to find out which ships sail for Charleston: http://www.dbh.de/index.php?id=151&L=0

You can go here and enter your VIN to see if your car is on a WWL vessel: http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp

If you are on a WWL vessel, you can use the same web site to track the voyage. I don't know how to track NYK ships. The WWL site is more up-to-date than the 800 number or the OC.

Hope that helps and I wish you a speedy delivery.

I believe this is when the engine meets the chassis. I could be wrong though. I thought i read that somewhere

Strange that BMW customer service stops tracking the car once it is on its way to the port. They told me that and they did not even know what port it is at. How could you not know where the car you produced is sitting.

Correct. You need the entire VIN.

Have you set yourself on the Owner's Center? If you have, you can get your VIN once your car is built. All you need is the production order number. Do you have that?

Any one know if your car is at the dock in SA will a ship pick it up and head to Bremerhaven or just go from SA to the West Coast?

I am still at the dock heading into my 2 week. With no ship.

I have checked everything everyday. It is still at the port somewhere in Africa I think it might be Port Elizabeth so now I am going on 3 weeks since the 24Jan. There are ships coming this way yet who knows where they are going I hope to the West Coast. Yet someone said that they do not have lots of cars to fill up a ship so maybe they are waiting till more cars come to the port. I am not sure the WW lines come to Port Huememe

Well just called the 800 number and I guess they finally put the car on a ship it said in transit not sure what that means could someone answer that for me. Now I will see how long it takes to get to the West Coast.
