I will feel stupid if my car is not on this ship

Wallenius site is at least 4 days behind.."..
My car (nyc bound) "missed" 4 boats heading on the Atlantic loop before getting aboard one. Very frustrating. Spent over 2 weeks waiting at the port

When it finally registered on the ship it was about a day after it left port

Woot!

I had been waiting for about 1 and a half months.
I'm GC, too. It was 435i gran coupe at that time.
Congratulations on your new car.

Thanks man ! Goes both ways
My guess it would be unloaded tomorrow. I called the dealer in the meantime and asked how fast the cars typically get to them and how long would it take to prepare it - she said typically a day. If that's the case - I could be posting some pics by Monday/Tuesday of the next week

Where's yours right now ?

edit: I must say, these vessels are rather fast !

What was your built completion date ?
I either got very lucky or I don't know what else to call it, as my car got loaded onto the ship within a week [11/15 - 11/21] after rolling out of production

Mine just missed the Tirrana ( digital 83’s ship) as it was built on Monday nov 20th, and loaded onto the Thermopylae on Thursday December 1st, so pretty quick turnaround in the process from factory to ship. I think time in Bremerhaven is mostly dependent on when you car gets built relative to the next available ship. If you just miss one, you wait a bit longer, if your build can hit port 4 or 5 days out from departure it seems you have a shot of being loaded pretty fast.

11 days is the scheduled time for the Atlantic crossing from Bremerhaven to Halifax including the stops in zebrugge and Southampton along the way. The Thermopylae is about 1/4 of the way across the Atlantic right now.

Yours was on Tirranna too ?

Same situation, looks like my car is still at the port. I had a couple of port installed accessories added, so this might take an extra day or two before it reaches the dealer.

One other thing - has any of you considered Alcantara Trim [M-Perfm] ?

I assume it was on that vessel. Probably will take few extra days. Good luck to you. Post pics when you pick it up

go to Wallenius willhelmsen site, in track and trace enter your vin. That will show you what ship you are on and if you click on the ship name it will give you the arrival date for your destination .

Hope it gets to you soon.!!
