Ask your CA. He can find out. You can check the to see which boats left on the day when your car was shipped. BMW usually uses Wallenius Wilhelmsen to ship. Once you figure out the name of your ship google marine shipping and type in the name. From there you can see exactly where your boat is

I'm on that boat too. Was hoping it would go straight to NYC but I guess it has to stop in CA first for you

When did you order???

I think I知 screwed, waited too long to order!
Luckily I made week 13 production, with a build date of March 27th,
But I doubt I値l have it before 4/14, when my lease ends.
I can do an extra month, but I知 already over miles!

Have you already extended your lease the maximum 6 months?

My CA first put in my order on 2/20. I had him modify the order on 2/21 but I kept my slot because production hadn't started. Actual production started on 2/25.

I did order end January and I was lucky to have a prodduction in the first week of March. I am in Montreal and the CA told me that with the boat arriving end of March, with the custom and train transportation I shall have the delivery by the 3rd week of April, if everything goes smooth. Can’t wait to have this car!!

That痴 the problem. I知 already 10k over on mileage, so I need to dump the car ASAP! My original dealer never communicated the option of building a car! The CA was on maternity leave, but still they knew my lease was ending in 2 months! I went to a different dealer and was able to make week 13, but that will probably put me in line for mid May delivery without any delays?

My build left Bremerhaven last week en route to Halifax. I'm sure it must be on the same boat, Glorious Leader due to arrive Mar 27. Thanks for the boat details - nice to be able to track the voyage! Hoping mid-April for delivery.

Transit

Hello everyone this is my first time tracking a BMW and my m340i just hit transit...Question, does this mean the car is in the clear when it lands at the NYC port to go directly to the dealer for delivery? in other words is it a possibility for delay of delivery on bmws end forcing the car to stay at the NYC port.

I've just sent my CA an email asking various things. This is one of them. I'll let you know.

The car can definitely be held/delayed at the port. A few days is normal but 1-2 weeks would not be unheard of and could be for many reasons.

General question: are shipping ports active 24/7? What hours do the BMW vehicle processing centers do work?

I'm wondering if I need to be counting business days until delivery, or if its possible cars move through port on the weekend. I'd guess ports are 24/7 but not sure about the VPC.

They値l drive off the boat and park it. Then it has to pass through customs. Then to another lot until the VPC grabs it. Supposedly 2-4 days at VPC but since your car is priority 1 it will hopefully be first in line once it reaches the VPC.

What's the national release date for the M340? Do you think the cars will be held at the VPC until enough are available for a synchronized debut?
