Nice! Mine is expected to arrive in Baltimore on Tuesday. It only sat at the port for 2 days. I got the generic "no shipping information available at this time" message too. Just lookup the outgoing shipping schedule and find the port closest to you. Looks like one is leaving today Hope yours gets on it. If not you have two more leaving this week. You can check to see when its loaded by entering the VIN on the shipping page.

Schedule: http://sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSched...pe=generatePDF

Left Port: 1-24
Arrives in Baltimore: 2-5
Dealer in SE VA: ETA around 2-10

I may have been caught around Christmas with an abbreviated ship schedule, not sure. I know my car arrived at Bremerhaven on 12/21. I waited there until 1/3 before I got on a ship. After that, my car was on the boat for 15 days till 1/18 (Baltimore) - arrived at the dealer 6 days after than on 1/24.

Car's been great so far - no issues and just crossed 250 miles today. Waiting for break-in period to really unleash her!

Thank you for your information. According to your shipment chart, I found the closeiest day would be Feb 8th to port Hueneme Cali Mar 3rd. The vessel name is Tombarra.

Hopefully that will be the mine.

It's painful to order Europeam car from the west coast. lol

That's what I thought too - that I was going to be waiting for the Tombarra. Another ship picked up my car ("Gentle Leader") on 1 Feb. Website and 800 number still have it @ Bremerhaven, but my CA provided the ship name this morning. Gentle Leader due in to Port Hueneme on 26 Feb.

You go to schedule page and put in the ports and it gives you the scheduled departures, if you ship is a Wallenius Wilhelmen ship. West coast sometimes uses K-Line or NYK lines, and their websites don't show the schedules the same way. I was surprised to find my car on one of their ships, and I still can't confirm it using their websites. My CA has better information and its going to arrive earlier than expected so I am happy!

Look at your acct info, are your from Tucson? But why do you have your CA dealer to order?
