If you have a VIN, and its not showing on the WW site, likely it isn't on this boat. In another thread, I determined that the WW website "lag" is about 5 days. (i.e. My car was already on a ship and en route for 5 days before showing up on WW). You may be in the same situation.

ive ordered on the 4th of sept, and according my dealer, he said the dealership should have the car within 10days. that was last week friday.
that means, the uk lot have their cars on british soil. not long for me now!
can't wait!
just a quick question, which website do you use that is incorporating the google maps as it showing pics of the ship. i would like to see it.

Thanks for this brilliant thread!
nice one!

I'm on the Patriot. Pretty excited. First BMW and a newby on the board. I put mine on order on the 18th of Sept and made it on the boat by the 1st of Oct. Took a few days before shipper's site confirmed via vin number, but states it was booked on 9/25 arrived at port on 9/28 and loaded on Patriot on 10/1.

I applied for a free two week account on aislive, but, haven't received a confirmation. Hope to get it soon.

That is an amazingly short timeframe. I ordered mine 22nd of August and made the same boat....

I am on this ship as well (European Delivery drop off 9/24/07 in Munich).

This may be a dumb question, but does any one know why the ship is on a southerly tack rather than arcing up towards greenland as aircraft on transatlantic flights do? I know there is the risk of icebergs - but this is to the extreme north...

I was thinking it was trying to avoid the Gulf Stream. That would totally slow the boat down going in that direction. I'm assuming it will go further south then come up via the stream first to NY.

From what I've read, I have to agree. I've been cruising these boards looking for suggestions on ordering....followed all the advice I thought was good. I insisted on priority 1 when ordering (don't know if this helped). I was doubting my dealer when he said it would be here by the middle to the end of October. I'm guessing my dealer had some cars already on order and was able to modify one to meet me requirements. Good for me I suppose.

Can I join y'all?

I am on the Patriot as well. Ordered by 335xi on 9/17/2007. Is there anyway to find out who is also parked in my container? I would like to meet them, maybe have a celebratory drink....

Thanks for the real-time (almost) maps!

My Jet Black 335i Sedan is also on the Patriot. Ordered 8/24, production completed 9/24 at port 9/28....I was told my car would be built week of 9/1, but the wait is almost over. So 4.9% financing. I hope that's true, waiting for a call from ca.

It's not. It's following known streams and shipping paths. It ends up heading back up north. It's in NY on the 15th, Baltimore on the 17th, Charleston, SC on the 20th, and Brunswick, GA on the 22nd. Sorry

OK, the mods are arriving at the house before the car - NOT making "the boss" happy: "You can't even leave a new car alone for 1 day before you start messing with it!"
"Um, no"
