Finally my car is in transit!
It finally showed today (1/27) as "in transit". I called in and they told me that it boarded on 1/24.
I'm also told an estimated arrival to port date (2/19)
Additionally once it arrived there will be an estimated "dealer arrival" date.

Now it's time to track Hercules Leader.

I'm glad you're way more on the ball about this than I am...

I might even be on a work trip when the car hits the dealer... 2 more weeks!

For me it's more like 3 more weeks.
I'm told it may take up a week to get the car after it lands in California.
Offloading, customs, checks, etc...
Plus trucking or rail wherever you are.

yeah they told me it would take about a week after it hits the port. I'm in LA though so not as long of a truck ride.

Yeah no kidding! Good news is I'll get her after the worst of winter is over. Maybe they were just giving it some extra TLC?? :

Hopefully! Just as a datapoint: Mine landed at the port then waited 4 days to get to a ship, however it showed "at the port" another 3 days before the status flipped to "in transit".

For some reason the ship is late getting to Antwerp, which is the stop prior to Bremerhaven. Now the schedule says it is leaving Bremerhaven on February 17, a day later than before.

Edited to add: Mine left Bremerhaven yesterday on the Hoegh New York.

Hercules Leader arrived in San Diego in the early morning hours. Tomorrow it'll be in Port Hueneme finally to offload my car!
Let's see how long will it take the car to get to North California.

Hercules Leader just left Port of San Diego.
I was lucky to watch it live. I took some screenshots.

probably you can scroll back on the live cam if you're interested in.
Timestamp is above.

Per latest info, my car will be offloaded on 2/21 Friday and will be take the train to Bay Area. Give or take including delivery prep, I'm looking at 2/28. However I asked to pick up on 3/3 due to my business.
However I also want to wait for the next BMW promotion. You never know there may be an extra incentive to catch...

that is a pretty smart idea.... given car sales in the world of late have not exactly been great , you never know. I might have to do this too.

For the folks who are not hyper-stalking Hercules Leader...
Hercules Leader left Port of Hueneme today and heading to Japan.
If your car is not being delivered to Japan, right now it should say "At Port" on mybmw website until it is loaded on to a train or truck for dealer delivery...

Once you see it "in transit" again on the website, it's a good time to call your dealer/broker and get an estimate for your delivery date.

Hence the thread "frustrating orders"... some delays are so random.

On another note BMW NA confirmed that the dealer will get my car by 2/23. It's already rolling on the rails.

I'm still looking at 3/3 delivery so I have no regrets missing a new promo by couple of days. I saw some dealers in my area doing "specials" this weekend.
