But I'm just curious, since it will my car will be delivered to me in Texas, when do BMW's get unloaded at Baltimore or Charleston. I'm guessing if you do a PDC, they unload in Charleston, but does anyone know the complete story on this? Thanks.
I live in Memphis and my E90 was unloaded in Charleston yesterday off of the Aida. Living in Texas, I would think that you would unload in Charleston as well. If you track your cargo on the W&W site by your VIN, it will tell you where your E90 is getting off the boat. From what I've noticed, the South Carolina VPC is faster than the New Jersey one. Other folks E90s from Cincinnati to Texas have come in via Charleston.

magmd,

Very cool to know another Californian with an E90 coming on the same boat! What dealer are you purchasing from?

Your salesman can do a "Vehicle Inquiry: Status" on the BMW internal network and give you all the following info:

VIN, Product Number, Status, Actual Production Date, Priority, Customer Name, Port Location, Destination Location, Shipping Vessel Name, Voyage Number and Bill of Lading Number along with other seemingly meaningless info.


Keep in touch.

Dave

Thanks Chris
For those of you that were interested my vehicle was on the MEDEA it left on the 15th so im assuming there is a 2 day lag over the phone when it ships and a 3day lag on the Owners Cirlce Website. Cargo tracking for Wallenius Wilhelmsen took 3-4 days for it to register on there website. My 330i will be at port on the 26th. If you search by Vessel on Wallenius Wilhelmsen it shows you all of its stops and when it arrives and departs at each location.

SO WHEN DO YOU THINK I WILL GET MY CAR?? Im in Brooklyn, NY 20 minutes from NYC? You think i will get it by September 1st??

Alright! Finally confirmed that I am on the Marina Ace!!! Dealer told me it should be at VPC around 9/10 or so!!!

Man...I can't wait. I still have not been able to figure out how to track the vessel...none of the sites listed on this board have it. Damn NYK!! makes things so difficult.

Well...cheers to counting down the days to 9/17...target time to take delivery!

Finally!

I'm in the lobby of the Greenville Marriott in Greenville SC while my wife puts our son to bed. Tomorrow I'll be on the race-track at the Performance Center before picking up my new 325! They are going to spend 2 hours going over my vehicle with me, 2 hours on the race-track (I hope - it sounds too good to be true) and a tour of the factory. Very excited.

How long does it take to get the Production Week Number? I put in my order Tuesday and I got the tracking number on Saturday.

July 7 - Order placed with BMW.

July 8 - Order shows up in BMW Owner's Circle but as the wrong color, as mentioned in the Ultimate Order Tracking Guide. My order was substituted for another vehicle the dealer had on order. Calls placed to the 800 number say that my vehicle is on order.

July 10 - The proper color is now listed in Owner's Circle with it still listed as on order. The 800 number now says that it is scheduled for production with no production date.

July 21 - Vehicle is in production with a scheduled completion date of July 28th.

July 26 - Vehicle in the paint shop with scheduled completion date of 7/28.

July 28 - Vehicle completed production and released to a carrier for transport to port of exit.

July 29 - Vehicle being transported to port of exit. Also, I've noticed my VIN is now available on Owner's Circle under review order detail.

July 30 - Vehicle at port awaiting shipping vessel.

August 5 - Vehicle in transit according to the 800 number. OC says awaiting transport. Called BMW NA for details. They said it was on it's way to the port. Decided to check my VIN on the W&W website and it turns out that it did get on the Aida on August 3rd.

August 17 - The Aida has docked in Charleston and my E90 was discharged according to the W&W cargo tracking website. Their website had this information less than an hour after the event actually had occurred. BMWNA 800 number still lists vehicle in transit.

August 20 - OC website lists my E90 at the VPC in South Carolina. BMWNA 800 number still lists it as in transit.

August 22 - OC says my E90 is at the dealership! That was quick. 5 days from getting off the ship to my local dealership. 800 number still says vehicle in transit. So early on, the 800 number was more up to date, but once the car reached US soil, OC was more accurate.

August 23 - Picking up today at 4. Total number of days: 47 So almost 7 weeks.

Did it also list the production week number at that time? And if so, where? I am wondering if maybe I am missing something because mine is not listed and I placed my order a week ago.

BEST REGARDS,
Your car will come into port in NYC. It can take up to 10 days or so for the status to change from awaitng shipping vessel.

I never did get a production week number from the 800 number or OC. Maybe a call to your dealership or BMW NA can get you that information.

BEST REGARDS,
Have you checked the W&W website and entered you VIN in their tracking system? BMW had my car still at the port for a couple of days after it had already sailed. Also, once it shows up on W&W's website, it will tell you where it will land in the US. Good Luck!

I think mine is on the Marina Ace, too! Dealer gave me the same arrival time as you all. I am very anxious...it was supposed to be here around the 6th.

Hello all,

I ordered my 325 yesterday. The dealer said that it has an early September production slot. When do you think it would show up on the Owner's Circle site (or the 800 number)? Right now it just says on order with no scheduled production date.

Also, I got it from a dealership in Columbus, Ohio. Would it be processed at the VPC in NJ?

Thanks in advance!

Chris

My early July order took 2 weeks to be scheduled for production. Also, I've seen Cincinnati deliveries go through Charleston, but haven't seen any Columbus E90's yet. Once your E90 gets on a ship, the W&W tracking page will tell you where it's getting off the boat.
