Ouch. Well, you never know I guess. Is there any possibility it really did make it on Tortugas? This is my first BMW but from everything I've read it seems a lot of this tracking information is notoriously poor at updating.

Actually, it's out in the open, exposed to all kinds of weather... I mean, I found another one they forgot:

Not to go OT, but do you think I could replace the steering wheel in my new 335i with this one? That would really pimp my ride...

If the train doesn't break down (haha), it should be a day or so.. I was done the 15th, waited the 16th for transport and was in Bremerhaven on the 17th

Alright, since I started this thread I guess I may as well make the 100th post. I've given up hope on the Tortugas. Someone dropped the ball and my car isn't on it. I'm looking at the Asian King now as my savior. Come on Kingy!!!

I know. been scoping it out. someone with one number behind me got onto Bess, but Integrity gets to SC before Bess anyhow. If my car doesn't get on Integrity I may be looking at something on a lot somewhere. LOL.

Good luck getting on the Asian Vision.

In going crazy in here.. Production was completed on 2/23 then the 800 updated that Te car was in transit to the port. Then it made a U-Turn and is now saying that production is done and waiting for a carrier.

Some of you here had ur cars built on the same day and y'all are at the port and I'm not???

My production was done the 15th, got to port several days before a ship left, and they ditched me. Sucks your status went backwards!! If my recording says that I'm in production again, my CA is gonna pay the price! (not his fault of course but someone has to take the fall)

I know what you mean.. if, for example, my car was not on the Tortugas, then chances are that I would've gone across the street to look for a car instead (Lexus and Mercedes is literally at the other side of the road from BMW here lol)..

Yeah well, that's how I got in this trouble in the first place. When my 07 E90 335i was bought back by BMW in 2009 due to many HPFP issues (later recalled), I was so fed up that I went to Lexus and bought an 09 GS350 fully loaded. Great reliable car but far too grandpa in its styling, handling, etc. I got really bored with it in early 2011, the F30 was too far off and I love to off road, so I had another bright idea
And traded it for a 2011 Tundra 4x4 loaded rock warrior edition. Needless to say, at 13MPG and shitty handling and other concerns (ahem, it's a truck) I sold it a month ago after ordering my loaded 335i. I'm stuck. I know what I want, it just has to get in the f$*%ing boat!!!

10 days ago production of my car was completed. Still waiting to be released to a carrier. I'm going insane... Next vessel leaves on the 8th, then another one on the 13th. What are my chances?

From my experience you have no chance for the 8th - the 13th seems reasonable.
