SA built 335i is on board of DIGNITY ACE!!!

After 10 days wait at port of SA. My car finally got loaded on the DIGNITY ACE! Who else is with me??? My CA told me it will arrive at U.S. on 12/11. What a long wait!!! I guess I will pick it up at Christmas eve.For those who are planning to place an order for SA built. Don't ever take that 8 wks delivery crap. 10-12 wks is more accurate for a SA built to West Coast.

Congrats ! Your car is about to set sail for a trip up the west African coastline, stoping at multiple ports throughout Europe and possibly being unloaded and reloaded onto another boat in Bremerhaven before starting a voyage to the Canadian and US coastline for multiple stops, down to the Panama Canal, and finally over to the U.S. west coast. This is why its a 7 week sailing trip.

On the MOL(company who owns the ship) website shows Dignity Ace only stops at East Coast then goes to South America and back to South Africa. It is so werid that this boat doesn't travel thru Panama Canal. CA is keep telling me my boat will at Oxnard, CA by 12/11, but my question is how???

Possibly switching ships in port, and the new ship is going through the Panama Canal ?

No idea. I E-mailed MOL ship company, and they confirmed that my car is on Dignity Ace which arrive at East Coast by 11/30. I still couldn't find out that how my car is going to be transfered from East to West.

Update: M.O.L. shipping company emailed me again saying that my car was transshipped at Bremerhaven on Nov 13th. now it's on boat Palmela, and it will arrive at Oxnard, CA by Dec 20th! Crap!! I might miss the holiday incentive if my car didn't get to the dealership before 1/2/13!! I am really upset right now! it has been over 2 month already, and I still have one more month to wait. Stupid CA is useless on the shippment tracking!

Damn that sucks. I got my shipping information today. My CA called and said the boat will arrive in SoCal port on Dec. 10th but it could be slightly earlier.

Do you know the name of your boat? Mine got transshipped at Bremerhaven on Nov 13th. it just got load up on another boat named Palmela by 2 days ago. My car was sitting at port of Germany for 2 weeks!!! My CA confirmed that my car will arrive at port of CA by Dec 19th, also I am going to the dealership next week to lock my rate, therefore ,I am still able to keep all the incentives even with my car arrive after 1/2/13.

Is the port strike in SoCal affecting your delivery time? It raped mine by 13+ days.

Just read the news about the LA and Long Beach port strike, and it was ended on Dec 5th. It should not effect my deliver time since the strike was about 3 weeks ago. I just checked my ship schedule on M.O.L. website, it still shows that the boat will arrive at Oxnard, CA by Dec 20th. No Delay!!

I have checked your boat schedule for you, your boat is scheduled to arrive at Oxnard, CA on the 24th. It somehow got delayed, also I checked shipping schedule from the Port of Hueneme website, and find out that your boat will be ported there on the 24th. That means your boat is still sailing on the Pecific ocean right now, not at the port yet.
