OMG I'M SO EXCITED AND CONFUSED.



EDIT:

okay. I just figured out. The car doesn't really go to NJ. They just send the paperwork to NJ before the ship enters the states. Well at least the customs are cleared.
just...a ...few...more...days!!

Yep! I get the same thing! Let's hope the VPC isn't backed up. There are still a lot of car carriers at Baltimore port.

She's moored at the dock and the ramp is down! Now, hope there isn't a long backup at VPC. The "Dignity Ace" is also docked.

A little OT, but I spoke with my CA today about what will be the scenario if it isn't delivered by Friday since my next payment is due 4/8. He said no prob, just turn my car in and they will give me a loaner until mine is here and ready so I get extra month of "pull ahead". That's why I stay with same dealer, great service!

California Highway left Baltimore about 5 hours ago, at 18:06 UTC (2:06pm Eastern). Will get into open waters in around another 5 hours. ETA for Brunswick is 3-April @ 8:30 UTC.

I'm sure all will be great with your new baby, but just on the outside chance there is a problem just PM me and I'll see if I can help through Dreyer & Reinbold. You are just around an hour and a half from here.

Yes, perhaps we can. I was unaware of this so-called "superman combo" until a few weeks after I placed my order. I don't even care much for superman!

FWIW, for those going from Baltimore to Ohio, my 335i recently made that trip. Landed in Baltimore on 3/22, didn't arrive in Ohio till 3/30. Due to Easter I didn't get a chance to check it out in person until yesterday. Was told there was no VPC related repairs causing the delay rather it was a delay in the transport company. They told me they don't typically make the drive unless they can completely fill a carrier, thus that caused a few day delay. Not sure how much is BS or what isn't. Coming into this thing I was expecting a 2-3 day time between arrival at port and delivery at my dealer. Hopefully you guys will get your rides much quicker.

Also, regarding the port positions in Baltimore. The boat i was on dropped the car off at the second position in the harbor. If you look at google maps you can see the BMW VPC and the drop off point is very close to that VPC.

thanks for the info.

I'm expecting to pick it up sometime next week. Gonna take a day off to drive it around!

For the port position, that's what I figured too. I think the 2nd position is where they unload all the BMWs.

The fastest delivery(from the day the ship docked in baltimore to the car ready to be picked up at a dealership in Columbus ohio) I've ever heard is about 3 days.

But yea, I'm expecting the worst case scenario...I will give it 2 weeks. (though I secretly hope it's coming home before this weekend...)

I hope you get yours ASAP! I did the same thing, took Friday off so I could hit some of my favorite roads in southern and south eastern Ohio. We've got some property near where 32 and 73 intersect and I've got some really great driving routes in and around that area. Lots of twisties.

My SA told me that 10 days is the longest the port-to-dealership shippers are allowed to take, based on some contractual obligation. The quickest he had ever seen from Brunswick to Winter Park, FL was 5 days.
