VIN not showing up on WW

Anyone else have this happen? According to my dealer, my can was to be leaving on the Freedom. Whenever I punch in my VIN (double-checked the number on OC and w/dealer), the WW site does not list the VIN as being listed cargo.

My experience is that it takes a day or so after the ship leave for the vin to show results. THEN it is there and you wait some more.

By experience it does take a coupla days. In my case, the info showed up at just about the vessel's first stop (Belgium). Just to be sure, you do have full confirmation (i.e. DCS info) from your CA, right?

Think I'm on the Freedom also, It does take a few days for it to show up on the WW site.
Of course that doesn't stop me from checking at least 2 times a day anyway.
This is my 5th BMW, I should know better, I even have my VIN memorized...how nuts is that?

DCS is the software the dealer uses to track his cars.
It is always more up to date than anything else

Thanks, my dealer did tell me it was from DCS. Thanks, everybody, glad to see I'm not the only one spending too much time trying to track my new iron!
