Hope mine makes the Freedom as well. Keeping my fingers crossed. If not then it's probably on the next one 6/18.

Count me in. My 335i ED arrived at Zeebrugge last Wednesday from Nice and is booked to get on the Freedom there with the jump off point of New York. Hoping for an early July delivery before I head off to Singapore.

My 335i was produced on 6/1, and my CA says no boat assigned yet. I hope I'm on the Freedom.

No my VIN has not showed up nor has my status on OC changed from Awaiting Transport. I'm guessing I'm on this because my car finished production on 6/5. Hopefully, we'll all see the status change late tonight/tomorrow morning. I believe it takes 1-2 days for the VINs to show up on the cargo tracking website.

Guess I was lucky. My VIN showed up the day they made the vessel booking before my car was even at the port.

My car was "born" on June 1st, I'd be pissed if it's not on this boat. Today is day 12 after production complete. That's on the high-end of wait time that others are reporting.

I sold my e46 330Ci easier than I thought, so now I'm borrowing a friend's car. I might have to rent one if this drags on more.

My 335i coupe was finished on 6/5, does anyone know how they can find out if it could be on this boat? I spoke to my CA and she had no info for me. Also does anyone know how long it will take to get to my dealership when it lands in a US port?

I'm in Michigan and went through this wait once before (cancelled first order.) It took my car 4 weeks from leaving on the boat to being available for pickup at my dealership.

You should make it on. We'll all see soon enough who is onboard. My guess is we'll see a status change tomorrow.

I just got off the phone with the #800 talking to a real person. She said my car actually finished 6/3 (it changed status on 6/5) and is at the port. So, it's gotta be getting on a boat.

Hope so too. Waiting sucks more than Paris does... Why did you cancel the first time?

You really don't know until your CA has it on his Dealer Activity Report, in DCSNet, or if your VIN is posted on WW's website. In other words, usually you won't find out until 1-2 days after the vessel sails.


Stinger, she's a cutie, eh?

Looks like the Freedom left sometime this afternoon (EDT) had to go into a 3 hour meeting at 3:00 p.m. She was still there at 3:00. When I got back She was gone. Guess we will know if a day or so if we made it. Mine still indicates at the port.
Good Luck!

Ordered a 328i before driving the 335i. Made the good mistake of trying a 335i while waiting for my 328i to arrive. Plus I chose the Atlantic Blue Metallic on the 328 only to find out later that the configurator on BMWUSA.com was wrong. It was a strong blue color and not the silver with a hint of blue the website showed (there were no cars with that color at the dealerships yet so I was chosing with little information.) Short answer: upgraded engine and changed color.

All the fun is gone

Well today my CA took all the fun out of tracking the car. I now have a firm pick-up date at the performance center in Greenville, so no matter when the car gets here, that is the date I get it. Looks like I will wait about a week or so beyond the date I could pick it up from the dealer, but I believe the PCD will be worth it. Besides, I've been waiting since late April, so what's another week!
