Sept. 5 Del Date ?

was told today that my 2013 335i xdrive was en route to the US as of last friday but when tracking my order via bmwusa it says otherwise - has anybody run into any delivery discrepancies

and is there any other way to track my vehicle?

Try putting your VIN into the Wallenius shipping site: https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/ocean.do?method=getDefaultOceanQuickSearchPage

You enter VIN in "cargo ID" field and it will tell you if your car is on a boat, and the name of the boat.

Then go to: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/
And enter the name of the vessel your car is being shipped on for real time updates as to location of boat, speed, etc.

BMWUSA and 800 number still report my car is at port waiting on boat. In reality, my car made it on a boat last Friday and is currently approaching Southampton in the English Channel on a boat called Tristan, heading slowly buy surely to the Panama Canal, then to California, then to Tacoma, and then eventually to Alaska (probably when the 7th generation 3 series is introduced, at this rate!)

Hope this helps.

My vehicle on the Oberon just made it half way through the Panama Canal today: marinetraffic.com was not able to pick up AIS tracking signal from the North Sea until it reached Panama...

Yeah, my ship (Tristan) just vanished from marinetraffic.com sometime last night. Glad to hear that it is just because it left the English Channel and is out of tracking range; I admit having a moment of panic that some maritime tragedy has struck! Supposed to hit the Canal around 9/10, so I'll quit hitting refresh on marinetraffic every 10 minutes and actually get some work done.

VLING: my car is on the Oberon too. As soon as it cleared the Panama Canal it vanished. Maybe aliens abducted our F30s? I'm cool with that as long as they add a laser canon or something cool
