Check out the Port Hueneme Schedule. As of 12/06 it shows the Falstaff reaching the port on 12/18.

My 335i could be on this ship also, I was not able to get the name of the ship from the dealer. He told me that I should have my car around the 22nd of this month. It's been a long wait.

It was supposed to hit Manzanillo on 12/09. Do you have a tracking that shows the schedule for the Panama Canal?

Isotope9,

Yes, I found it on their site. It finally showed up. Hope it is ready for this Saturday, otherwise I might not be able to pick it up until the following Saturday. Work way too many hours (70+) to get there on time in the evening.

Hope yours shows up tomorrow. Just keep checking. My SA told me they were inquiring to put a rush on it today.

No I don't have a schedule for the Panama Canal I was just using the schedule from Wallenius's website. Where did you get the 9th? That's really early.

I'm getting my info from the same website. The schedule before it hit the canal was set for the 12th. I still don't see where your getting the 9th from. Are you tracking through auto cargo, where you enter your VIN?

Just got an email from my SA and the car is at the dealership!!! I'm picking it up this Saturday. Not bad, 6 weeks from production to delivery. Now i've got 2 sleepless nights ahead of me. Almost forgot, need to get a draft ready to pay for the thing too.

Isotope9, you should check with your dealer for yours. Good luck.

Yep, the schedule was updated today to reflect the delay.

It looks like it was 2 days late at Halifax, reached the Manzanillo International Terminal (www.mitpan.com) on 12/11 and went through the Panama canal on 12/12.

It's only 1 day late now, not too bad...

BTW, the port of hueneme schedule was also updated today (http://www.portofhueneme.org/documen...1213163215.pdf) and they are unloading the Fastaff on 12/18-12/19 instead of 12/18.

Damnit.... and I really wanted to get my car before xmas. At least your close. I estimate our cars get out of the vpc by the 21st or 22nd then it will take 3-5 days for the car to be trucked to NM. That sucks.

Your car was on the Falstaff? I'm sure it arrived at the VPC too. The dealer telling you they have no status is BS. My dealer knew when it arrived at the dock, when it got a work order for the VPC and the day it was going to get on the truck to head to them. I would think just because it is a military sale it would go through the same process. You just save money.

Mine's a "military sale" that was on the Falstaff as well. I called the dealer today -- no status. My dealer also mentioned that the good workers at the VPC might have taken the week off for the holidays... before they actually got around to inspectingb our cars.
