There is a boat leaving on Nov 27, arrives in Baltimore Dec 9. Better say your prayers. Hope I'm on it as well.

Does it take a while? or does it mean car isn't produced yet?

It worked for me even though the car was not yet built, but it was in production. Has your car started?

Dang how long does it usually take for the car to get from the factory to the boat? I feel like the 27th might be a long shot.

Also the vin decoder thing worked for me the day my prod was complete.

According to the dealer car should be with them by week 50.

It should be in build sometime this week or next.

Any ideas?

Do a search for the Bimmerpost guide to tracking your BMW build. The thread explains how to track the car from start to finish. Most BMWs seem to be
shipped on the Wallenius Wilhelmsen line so you can go to their site and see when ships leave Bremerhaven.

I'm a week 47 build and my car has finished production. I'm tentatively scheduled for 1/11/17. My CA said they would confirm the date 3 weeks in advance.

What about you?!
I pulled the trigger and scheduled a PCD delivery. Date is 1/18 but I'm going to try and move it up once I get out of production.

Here you go:

http://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1225876

Edit: Just use the Genius 800 #. The MYBMW tracking system provides very little info. In fact, I was told by Genius that even the reps there have less detailed info than they used too. But at least Genius can give you up to date info whereas the MYBMW website seems to lag a day or two behind the reality of actual production.

It seems like a long time to load a car. They must wait until they have a full load of cargo before loading. Hopefully mine is on the next boat.
