Anyone else on the Valiant Ace?

I talked to BMW Genius today and they said my car 340i M sport with Track Pack left the port in South Africa on 12/22 with an estimated delivery of February 16th. This seems like an awfully long time. Is this typical?

Normal for SA build. It most likely will have many stops in europe before crossing Atlantic.
I found your Vessel's schedule

How did you find that? I知 tracking on Marinetraffic and see it痴 going to Spain now but I don稚 see where to next. If this is a normal timeline then I値l put my wishful thinking that Feb 16th was a mistake, to rest.

Yea, says Long Beach 2/25/18 on the itinerary.
Add 2 days if you have Port Install items going on, 1-2 days for roll off Vessel/inspection. 1 day dealer prep
Should be March 2ish delivery I'd reckon

Very nice build! Yes hopefully it's on time but i checked the schedule that was posted by member above and it was delayed 2 days. For Long Beach at least. Crazy how many stops these ships have I guess they're dropping and loading at every port!
