I'm on there too! I was going to order an M3, but they found one already on the way over that matched my specs. Mine is getting off at Port Brunswick, looks like it will be there the 19th or 20th. I'm hoping to get the car by the end of the year if it doesn't get held up too long at VPC.

What did you order? I had a 07 335 sedan, then a 10 335i coupe, now a 13 M3.

you can be pretty sire that you will have your car by the end of the year, BMW wants the numbers.

I ordered a Activehybrid 335 with Msport. I always said I would never drive a hybrid... hahahaha...

Yeah, I didn't really think about that. I know they gave me a great deal on the M so I guess there is a big push to get #'s up. So hopefully we'll both have our cars by the end of the year.

I'm on there too... Ship's schedule shows it arriving in Brunswick on December 20. I'm assuming a few days for VPC and a few more for transport to Miami for me...

I have been going to the k-line site, then clicking "Schedules", then "Car Carrier / RoRo", then "Atlantic RoRo (Excel)". This downloads an excel sheet that they seem to keep pretty up to date. I assume this is probably the most accurate info we have access to. Looks like it left Germany 1 day late, which put all the other port arrivals 1 day late.

http://www.kline.com/

On a side note, I'm stocking up on mods already. Last time when i ordered my 2010 335 Coupe MSport I had tires, coilovers, ss brake line, spoilers, replacement grills, etc way before the car got here..... it helped pass the time. Then the day after I brought it home I took off of work and ripped the car apart and installed everything. This time I only have some cosmetic stuff, black grills, painted reflectors, etc. One thing I've learned is M3 mods are fricken way more expensive than 335 stuff, not sure how much cool stuff I'll be able to afford for the M.

Anyone else stocking up on mods up in advance of delivery?

We have a ship! Looks like it's approaching Baltimore dock right now, so according to schedule it's still on time. Should be just a quick stop here and then it should still hit Port Brunswick on the 20th.

Is possible if things go smoothly in Baltimore. At least we can see it now so we know where it is.

All depends, my last one was at the dealer like 5 days after hitting port so it sailed right through. Others have reported it taking weeks sometimes. Depends on options to be installed and whether there is damage to fix and how backed up the place is i guess.

Looks like maybe not. I saw it come out around Virginia Beach, but looks like it lost contact 3 hours ago. Must be too far away from the coast now to pick up the signal. Looks like we're looking at it hitting port tomorrow around mid-day.

for you folks on the Athens Highway---my car arrived on this ship back in September... I am closer to the port (Atlanta area) so the timing may not be the same for you, but FYI:

Ship arrived at port on 9/26 at 9am. The car was at my dealer on Friday 9/28 by 1pm, and I took delivery on Saturday 9/29 at 9am...so FWI 2 days from hitting port to my dealer...I was shocked it made it that quick!

Is it an GER or SA build? If its GER call your CA, could already be on a boat.
