Yes, that would be right. From Drammen, it heads to Cuxhaven then Southampton.

If your status changes on Friday to 9620 At Sea, you'll know which ship to follow. That of course is dependent on the port being Cuxhaven!
So I'm now at 9620 - at sea. Presume another ship has come in and snuck off with it :-) Will investigate your URL's and see if I can track it down...

So some of the ships listed as Ro/Ro ferries are actually "Vehicle" ships. The Prometheus is still in Scandinavia.

Here are a few candidates which left Bremerhaven today for Southampton...

What a fun little game, although my wife would think I'm totally sad... ;-)

When I saw your post, I headed straight to Genius but unfortunately, my status is unchanged at 9000, so I missed the boat!

Agree that our other halves will definitely think us sad......but it's fun

Damn!? Originally mine was meant to be delivered w/c 16th Sept but it slipped a month back. Guess I may be a few places ahead in the queue...

My order status for my 330i changed to 9620 today as well after being at 9000 since Thursday. I guess our cars must be ship buddies!

Thanks for this. It has always worked fine on my iMac (with Safari) but I've never got it working on iOS.

Mine is now 9650 - awaiting despatch to dealer. Didn't seem to be at sea for long!? Have penciled in 26th Sept for handover but reckon I might get it sooner. Can't take too long to move a car from Southampton to Coopers in Reading??

That was quick. They must have used a powerboat

At least my car reached the port today - status 9605

I ordered my G20 last Sunday and the dealer has let me know it will be here end of Oct, a month earlier than planned. So really surprised and happy about that.

Also ordered my car from Sandal Wakefield as per poster above.

That is quick....

Looks like mine will take between 6 and 7 weeks from order and I thought that was fast.....

Now expected end of this month.. latest update (today) was that it was moving to the logistics carrier...
