I asked the dealer the same thing... unfortunately not, but the dealer was more than happy to look it up anytime I ask. See how long that last for though

Looks like my car is off the Otello and is at the VPC. Hopefully i will have by early next week. Or if I am lucky the owner's circle is a few days behind and I will get it at the end of this week.

Now that my car is listed as "in transit" after sitting in the port, I assume this means it's on a boat.

Since I live in Chicago, I assume it will be a West Coast delivery, so I've gone to http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp >>Cargo Tracking >> Auto Cargo and entered my VIN in the Cargo ID box, but I only get "no tracking information available for that number".

Just curious if I am going about this correctly (or if it just takes a while for results to appear on that website).

Actually the way I understand it is that it will be delivered to the NY port and then brought to the NJ Vehicle processing center. I THINK?!? I JUST WISH IT WOULD GET HERE!!!!!

Ok, having a few problems using the tracker, if someone could help i'd really appreciate it. Checked the 1-800 # and it says the car is in transit, so it should be on a big metallic mass in the ocean, but i can't figure it out. It is west coast bound and would has to have left either yesterday the 22nd or today the 23rd. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Accounting - I just tried looking on the west coast carrier with Bremerhaven and Port Hueneme as the origin and destination, and I couldn't get anything. If I were you, I'd call your CA and ask what ship it's on. You could then track it on the carrier site or using a google search. Good luck mate.

Accounting4Speed --- your car is probably on the same ship my car is on ... departed the port of Bremerhaven Sept. 21st, aboard the Orion Diamond, on voyage number E7M018 OX, bill of lading number NY KS540014624, Xfef number 07655-02, in maritime parlance. The ETA at Port Hueneme, CA is October 16th ... hope this helps.

Hey!

Can I not use the owner's circle without a VIN? my dealer has not given me a win, though he did give me a production number.

TIA!

You don't need the VIN for OC. All you need is the production number.

^ how long since the car was "in transit"?

EDIT: Nevermind. I just called the dealership and asked. They said
its arriving to a port in cali either tomorrow or the day after. It'll take
around 10~14 days from there(At the preparation center ->
dealership).

I'm pretty sure I'm just getting over anxious, but it's been a little over 2 weeks since I put my order in, and the online tracking still shows it as "on-order" and the phone message says there's no production date yet.

Is that about right? How soon should I expect a production date?

Thanks for any help.

Join the club. I placed my order on 8/18. Owner's Circle didn't change from Scheduled until 9/14, and then it changed to Awaiting Transport.

Thanks! I haven't really bugged my dealer, but if mine is similar to yours, hopefully they will start production soon. I haven't called yet today (though I've been calling just about every day for the past week ). I'll see if it's changed by tonight.

Got word from dealer that my car left VPC yesterday. ETA of late this week. That will be a record time for me - about four weeks from drop off to delivery (in TX). I had some things I wanted VPC to take care of, but not sure if they were done.
