According to this schedule, the Don Juan, Carmen, Isolde, and Turandot are all WWL ships heading to Port Hueneme, California. So it looks like they do go to the west coast.

"awaiting release to carrier?" or "Released to carrier, awaiting a shipping vessel"..

two different things... if its the former, then you have about 2 days before you start waiting for a boat... then you wait

It will take about 8 days average from production complete to getting on a boat... so it looks like you'll probably get onto the Grus or Isolde, which means your car will land in a US port 5/9 or 5/5 respectively. Then a few more days to get to your dealership.

Current schedules to the West Coast... so it looks like two ships are leaving on the 3rd, and another two on the 11th. Then nothing until the 25th!

EDIT: * Thx Amjustice for pointing out this is a West Coast only schedule.

I am not sure where you guys are getting your schedule from but this is what I am seeing.

*Edit: I see that those schedules posted above were for the west cost..Well here is hoping that my car gets on one of the ships going out sooner rather than later. I don't think I will make it on a boat by tomorrow though since everyone it typically takes about 3 days to get to port. My current status is "Your vehicle has been released to a carrier and is waiting transport to the port of exit." Looks like I am stuck with 4/11 and not getting my ride until sometime in early May.

Well crap... I don't know what to think... today the 800 number says my vehicle is in transit, but I didn't think there was another boat until tomorrow... maybe I got out on the Don Juan on the 30th and things just hadn't updated...

March 6 - Ordered
March 26 - Production Complete / On the way to port
March 29 to April 1 - Awaiting ship at port
April 2 - In transit!!!!

The Ingolstadt docked on 03/31 and unloaded the cars that day. I dont know how much of a wait is there at the VPC, but after the release shouldn't take more than 5-7 days to reach final destination depending where you are at.

Damn, I guess that's right. One day to travel, and four to get loaded. Nice.

Chinoxs,

You could also be on the other boat line... but I think all east coast boats are WWL.

Maybe you'll get out on the 10th.
