Now that you mentioned ED, I don't believe that you can identify the ship as you can with a new car delivery. If your dealer is coming up empty, I guess you will have to wait it out.

Hmm.. Did your CA tell you this? I dropped mine off in Paris on the 29th of November, and I have no idea when it will be shipped... I emailed my CA on Friday, but I am still waiting to hear from him.

So I'm curious.. how did you figure out when your car is being shipped? I've tried Harms, but they gave me a number in Cali, and that company really had no clue... at all. I understand a drop off in Munich would be expedited when compared to a Paris drop off... but I hope mine will be delivered sometime in Jan.


Thanks,
Dale

As long as you know the ship name, you can track it across the Atlantic from Bremerhaven to Halifax.

How do you know which ship it is on? Today was the the first day that on the BMW OWNER's CIRCLE Page it says "EN ROUTE". How accurate is that?

Wait 24-48 hours and then enter your VIN on the WW website to find out what ship you're on.

Is there any way to track the ship once it hits the US? Mine is on the Fidelio and it was left NY on its way to SC then to GA. Sailwx only shows its position at 0600 on 18 August in the Atlantic.

Yes....once it gets close to shore, use http://www.aislive.com/

I just updated the first post. As discussed previously, Sailwx relies on ships reporting their position and sea conditions on a voluntary basis. AIS is a required ship position locater but is only effective near shore.

This is iimportant for those whose ships are going to ports not offered to the non-registered user or their voyage is longer than 14 days.
There also seems to be a lag in the time you first register and when you get your sign-in information. Remember to completely fill in the form.
I registered for the free trial, but they wanted to ask me a bunch of questions about how I was going to use the website. They were kind of rude stating that the trial was for companies or people intending to buy the software. Isn't that the point of all trials?

Anyway, I told them to buzz off. I only have a week to go before she docks, and I think I can make it that long without knowing an exact location.

Check this site:

I just used it to track my ED E90 when it got within range. It should work for you.

I'll update the guide

Man, that all sucks so bad. That would drive me crazy. The websites are pretty cool, but I doubt I would use them often. Right now I am a poor college student. I'll pass them along to my dad though.

It is important to know the best way for shipping an item. I am sure this will help the shipper locate your area. How about providing a map or sketch. I think this will help.

Got my 2011 e90 ordered, it has been built and for the last (maybe) two weeks it has been at "Your vehicle has left the plant and is ready to ship." I can't wait to see her!
