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?
Yeah, probably this week. Next week at the latest.

Agreed, the 1800# and the bmwusa website both tend to lag behind on the updates.
If it is indeed on the boat by now wouldn't my CA know already, isn't their system dealerspeed(?) always up to date and current?

Yeah if your dealer doesn't know then the car probably really isn't on a boat yet. Either that or he's lazy. Hey maybe we'll be on the same boat! Let me know when you find out, I bet a few people waiting for a boat now may be on the same one. Can't wait...

No, I wouldn't call my CA lazy. In fact he's one of the best I've dealt with in regards to buying a new car.
He just e-mailed me saying it's definitely taken longer than normal to get on a boat, so he has already inquired about it with a BMWNA rep and is waiting to hear back. He has kept me well updated so far and will let me know as soon as he hears something from the rep.

Yep, we could definitely be on the same boat and may be also on the same truck from the port since you are in Chicago as well.

Congrats!

My car finished on the 13th German build being shipped to Baltimore and I am still sitting on the doc.

edit: the w&w site could not find my car with the full Vin. I had to use the last 7 characters and it FOUND MY CAR! It was loaded on the boat YESTERDAY!

I was so excited I didn't even see your post just above. I am on Courage as well, also created a new thread on it.

Coming from Germany...i've checked the shipping site with the VIN trying to track it and nothing comes up. Maybe it's on another ship. Guess I'll just keep playing the waiting game.

Good to hear Mark, your car will be hitting the port just 5 days after mine. Lets hope for speedy VPC processing for the both of us. Are you having anything done to your car at the port? I am having black kidney grills installed. I hope it does not delay it much.

I have Black Kidney Grilles and Performance Exhaust to be installed at the port. I am guessing one extra day for the accessories to be installed.

Could be 3-4 extra days if parts are installed at VPC.

That's what I initially thought, would add at least 2-3 days extra.
But my CA said they would already have the parts waiting to be installed when the car gets there so it should be done in one day. We shall see.

Car has to be scheduled for a service bay. Only cars with VPC installed parts, factory shipped parts, defect repairs, factory upgrades, etc. go to these service bays. All depends on whats going on at the VPC when your car arrives. At least thats what I've been told by someone who toured a VPC.
