Got the confirmation that my car is currently sitting in Port of Halifax since March 1st. Dealer had put a rush order on it, lets hope to see some miracle.....

So now its Feb 24th and March 1st to get to Halifax.

Probably looking at mid March or even 3rd week of March for delivery.

When did you order your car? Isn't it weird that this card is almost exclusively custom built and there are almost no cars that you can walk into a dealership and drive off?

Buddy of mine (in the US) ordered a new Mercedes a few years ago, and did the European delivery. Had a big vacation centered around it.

When they shipped his car he was able to track it online, but then the tracking stopped after the ship arrived at the destination port...

Nobody knew where his car was.

Long story short, they eventually found it at a dealership's lot, with a window sticker and three thousand miles on it. I don't know what MB compensated him for, but he wasn't too happy about the situation.

It took him a lot longer to get his MB than the 12 weeks that BMW is currently telling us. I try to keep remembering that every time I check the "Track My BMW" page...

How long does it usually take from the car to get to dealership (PA) to port (NY)?

Mine is expected to arrive at the port tomorrow (it was delayed by 2 days.. hopefully no more!!), and I assume it shouldn't take more than 3 weeks for the port-to-dealership transition since the dealership is only 150 miles from the port.. Am I too optimistic?

More like one week from port to dealer that close to the port.

I ordered mine on Dec 8 2020. There is no Tanzanite Blue with Red interior in the whole of Canada. Moreover I opt for the premium excellent package with Adaptive M Suspension which narrow down to only a handful of cars in Canada. So with all the combination above plus open pore wood trim, there is zero in the whole of Canada, except mine.

so the status was In Transit obviously being shipped to CA.

arrived last thursday, next day status changed back to At Port, but this time US port

then yesterday changed to In Transit (again) probably means on truck to dealer
it's like 10-20 miles from port to dealer and been in this status for 2 days now

guessing i should be called by this weekend, they just want to make sure it takes 120 days 4 months even

Call the dealership and ask for the number to the transport company. Or better yet if you know the ship + transport you can backtrack it to figure out exactly what truck it's on and when it'll be at the dealership. I've done that before with my Ram 1500 - tracked down the number for the car carrier company doing the final delivery, confirmed by VIN number my truck was loaded on the carrier and would be rolling out to the dealership the next day, called the dealership and let them know it would be arriving by 0900 and please have it ready for me by that afternoon.

The captain of the vessel is completely lost lol.

Last I saw was it should be headed to Baltimore after the Jacksonville stop, and then to Newark. Last I checked - it should make it to Baltimore tomorrow, but at this point who really knows as the eta’s are always changing. Tracking these vessels are pretty damn annoying.

Looks like Jacksonville ETA was changed to 3/5 at 1AM. Guessing that will delay Newark arrival again.

Anyone else on the Volans Leader? It's scheduled to hit Panama in about 4 hours.

YeeHaww... Just called BMW customer service and my car is on the rail. However they have no timeline as to when the car was moved on the rail. So worst case scenario, the car gets to Concord Ontario on Monday and probably to the dealer by end of next week.

Question WTF soo many updates today

2/16 Entering assembly line
2/16 Assembly in progress
2/16 (by end of day) Quality check
2/17 Final assembly

2/19 Ready for transport

... waiting... nothing... still ready...

2/26 on phone from BMW Genius, informed that it had already left the factory about 4 days before (2/23?) and was in-transport to the Port of Departure (Veracruz?)... I was told to expect on average a transit time of about 5 days, from SLP plant to Port of Departure.

... waiting... still nothing... MyBmw still showing "Ready for transport"

3/7 online MyBmw tracking **finally** updates again: Awaiting carrier assignment

3/8 Dispatched from factory
3/8 At the port ... (wtf, so fast, is this Port of Departure or Arrival???)
3/8 In transit (I'm in a glass cage of emotion)

TBD At the dealership

Timeline update.

And I have no idea why 2 weeks later it updates at light speed. After the 1st week post-completion post-Ready for transport updated (2/19), still no online change, but Genius informed me it was already being transported to the Port of Departure.

Then 2 weeks later, online updates this weekend at light speed, blowing through Awaiting carrier assignment > Dispatched from Factory > At the port > IN TRANSIT.

Does anyone know if at this stage if 'At the port' meant Departure, and it's in-transit it's just on the ship?

Or by the time it reaches THIS update, it really is on it's way to the dealership ???

By the time it hits "in transit" you should be able to see what ship it is on (your dealer will know too). From there, look up the ship's schedule and that should give you your actual delivery date +/- a day or two.

So "in transit" isn't between "Port of Arrival" to (next step) Dealership? I'm going to call BMW Genius/my CA today and try to get more information. BMW My Garage only lists this status, it doesn't list ship information or else I don't know where else to look for it.

If you are slightly obsessive about watching the timeline your car will be At the Port twice - once when it is at the departure port, again when it arrives at a port in the US. Once you have the ship name you can follow along as it arrives, leaves the VPC and is at the dealership. At least the steps will make a little more sense.

Called BMW Genius today from inside my glass cage of emotion.

Carrier/ship = Glovis Cardinal

BMW Genius said it was supposed to head out to sea 3/8, but *actually* it left EARLY 3/4

Tracking via marinetraffic.com shows it already offshore from Galveston TX

Estimated arrival date is 3/17 - (I'm assuming that's arrival to Port, not dealership)
