Thanks, good to know.

So it means I did not make it on the 11/26 boat Oberon.
Looks like I won't be getting my car until after the new year's.

Well, don't give up hope on Oberon until at least Wednesday. It may take a bit longer to actually show up on their site, but once it's on there the status gets updated as it leaves port, hits customs, etc.

As of 11/25/12 (yesterday) the 1-800 # indicates my car is "in transit" and to please contact my delivery center. I've asked my CA what ship I'm on but have not heard from him just yet.
To update my own post, I just heard from my CA (he's responsive) and confirmed that I'm on the California Highway (K-line ship)!

His latest screen shot shows the Bill of Lading, but it doesn't pull up any information on the Kline website, so whomever mentioned that you can't track your car on Kline ships appears to be correct.

Enerji I am on that boat too, I have a thread a few down from this one with a nice picture of that massive boat. It is out of range right now but is somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic as it is supposed to hit Baltimore 12/2

Sorry to hear Mark, The only explanation I can think of is the Baltimore port back up as your car should have hit a ship like mine has by now. I know I would be frustrated myself, all I can say is hang in there. The car will be worth it though and its only a couple of weeks more waiting at most.

Well, I have no option but to hang in there.
Although the waiting is getting rougher.

Here we go!

Placed my order 11/24/12. Order accepted and waiting on a production slot. I'm guessing mid-late Jan. delivery. This is for a 335i M-sport xDrive. German build.

I was impressed with the dealership and my CA. She had the car built while I waited at her desk, got me a German allocation, and I even left with my vehicle's production number. That was FAST!

I've been waiting for a shipping vessel at the port since 11/23. I've checked the WW Logistics site periodically but no data yet available. Am I checking too soon or is there possibily another logistics website I can check? My car is German build btw if that helps...

I've been waiting at Bremerhaven port since 11/19, and still not on a boat yet. Only the cars coming on WW ships can be tracked on their website. Other lines such as K-Line, MOL and NYK can only be confirmed by your CA.

Production completion date just got changed to 11/30! Hopefully I get lucky and it doesn't take two weeks to get on the boat.

Your car is possibly on a boat right now. The bmw hotline doesn't gove anymore updates after "waiting for a shipping vessel." Last time I ordered I waited and waited for the hotline to change then realized the car was on a boat already!

My car had been sitting in port for about 3 weeks now here in the US. Today it finally moved to stage 4, 'Finishing Touches'. My CA says it is coming from Georgia and we are in Texas.

Any rough estimates on an ETA? I talked to him yesterday and he said he was hoping by the end of the month. So I assumed end of December until I realized it was still November, was he thinking by the end of the week?

I have same situation, I call BMW hotline and says awaiting shipping vessel, but I know my car is soon to be en route from port to dealer.
