Im on there too!

From looking at the voyage, it shows 12/17 as the date of entry into Port Hueneme.

Not sure if you are tracking this through the same sites I am, but you may find the following useful:

http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTracking/cargoTrack.do

Under "Auto cargo" -> enter your car VIN -> Click on where it lists "Voyage" ED747-FAL

And see where it is here:

Good to see I'm not the only one tracking Falstaff....I didn't think my VIN would ever show up on WW's site!

My xmas present should be offloaded in Halifax next Monday! Dealer gave me a delivery date of the 15th of Dec...hopefully I get it a bit sooner!

Wow the 17th? It is showing me the 22nd. Do any of you know if your VIN has been registered for insurance purposes yet?

I check the vessel schedule on the Port Huemene website for Dec. It also shows the Falstaff arriving the 17th.

Not sure about the insurance.

I'm on this vessel as well. I tracked it in Southampton using their live tracking service. Halifax eta was listed as Dec 3. Dealer told me they should have it by the 17th. It would be a great early Christmas present.

Isotope9, what dealer did you purchase from? Mine was BMW Mississauga after a horrible experience with Town & Country.

What I don't understand is why don't the vessel's from Bremerhaven just unload all their cars on the east coast and they truck them to the dealers on the west coast. Wouldn't that be faster then having to go all the way to the Panama canal? Maybe it's the lack of VPC on the east coast that make them do this... idk... just a thought.

Looks like it arrived on the 3rd and left on the 4th....at least my car is on terra firma, and quite likely on a train.

Not sure how long it will take to get to TO...but I would think (hope, actually) that it should be here by Monday

Hoping delivery date is next week sometime!

Looks like my car is at the CN yard in Concord!!! Hopefully it gets on a truck to my dealer this week. X-mas has come early I hope.

Isotope9, wonder if yours is there as well.

Isotope9, check this site http://www.lhf.com/hansens/index2.php to track the truck when it ships to the dealer. Mine hasn't shown up on their site yet. Do you know if the $1500 rebate has been extended for December? Let me know when your vehicle ships.

I talked to my dealer and the $1500 stands will the end of December.

After that I bet BMW will see how traffic for new car sales are. With Audi dropping MSRP I hope we'll get some action.

My car is not showing up on the trucking site either....hopefully it will show up soon though...

Is this $1500 for purchases only, or are leases included?

I believe it is only for purchase. The choice is lowered 3.9% lease/finance rate or the cashback. It doesn't hurt to ask though.

It's not late. Per the shippers website, through auto tracking, it wasn't suppose to hit the canal until today. It's a day early
