I called BMW today and tried to escalate the issue. No dice. They said once it arrives at port, it's out of their hands. Turns out my production ended on 2/11 but I didn't arrive at te port until the 23rd. It's been there since. They did however say that cars are shipped roughly in the order they arrive at port which means since most left on the Tortugas, I should in theory be toward the front of the line for the Asian King. We shall see!

The 800 # says my car is now "In Transit." Not exactly sure how to take that, as the Wallenius site still has no record of my VIN and the next ship to leave isn't scheduled to head out until 3/8...

No record on wallenius site yet. Hopefully my CA tells me which boat today.

Just received word from my CA that the the actual ship date from Europe was 3/2, to arrive in the US on 3/17. That doesn't exactly match up to the schedules on the wallenius site but who cares! WOO HOO Here she comes!

So since BMW received my order on 02/27 does that mean my car wont go into production until next week?

Generally around 2 weeks - a little more, a little less.

at least you guys are in Florida, its even worse not the West coasts. you have ships coming once per week on average, we have 1 ship every 2 weeks...and it takes much longer to sail to West Coast.

Gents - There are options that no one is discussing. I just found out from my CA that I'm on the Green Bay that left 5 days ago! Still looking into details like other ships from this carrier, but this adds hope to people that miss the Tortugas, Asian King, etc.
