Apparently my ship is a couple of days behind. My dealer told me it's now schedule to be at sea 19 days instead of 17. Also when I look at myshiptracking.com it says March 2nd to land in Baltimore and the live tracking says March 4th for Baltimore. It was supposed to land my car in Brunswick, GA on March 4th.

The live tracking says the ship is going 12 knots. They need to hit the turbo button on that thing.

Will be at the port for 3 weeks+ when it gets on a ship, hope the paint is not too contaminated :/
Where did you find the schedule for the Torino? I see this ship is at the port in Bremerhaven today

Supposed to arrive at the dealer the 2nd week of March, which is perfect timing since I can't get my $500 Penfed code until March 9th lol.
You have an almost identical timeline and build but mine is a 330 M-Sport. Is yours from the Mexico factory or Germany?

Thanks for sharing! This is pretty much the exact same shipping route that my M340i is taking from Antwerp all the way through to Port Kembla (Sydney) in Australia! How interesting indeed!

Same! Switched to “In Transit” this morning and found out from the BMW Genius number that I’m on the Grand Orion.

I see it just left Antwerpen and has a destination of “US BAY” on March 5th! Which shipping company does this ship belong to? Did a quick scan of the main 4 listed and didn’t see it

Just choose Grand Orion from the dropdown, change "From Date" to 2/20 and you should see the details. Antwerp to Bayonne direct (aka "BAY" i guess)! Currently travelling at 16.5 knots.

Awesome, thanks! Tracking it on my FleetMon trial account now.

It's going to be a long week and a half but it's nice to know more or less exactly where it is haha

My car has been stuck in “final assembly” since the 20th. It’s driving me crazy! Especially since every other car posted about here seems to get through that stage in less than a day.

Edit: I spoke too soon, lol. It just went to "ready for transport"

I'm in New England, and the genius told me we'd hit Bayonne Port in NJ on 3/5, and could see the car at the dealership around 3/15!

(I updated this to include the extra steps of At the Port and In Transit that happen once the car reaches the States)
