It'll all be worth it I'm sure though!!
Guess we did not make the "Glorious Leader". I will be "Aniara" Which left Savannah on Feb 4th due into Bremerhaven on the 12th.

By the way this is the M2 forum...not that this matters when we are on the same boat!

Just found out that the US car that was built the same day as mine is on the Glorious Leader... so maybe I'm wrong....Call your dealer.

I called today...still no updates other than "in transit". I'll try to contact WWL once more and my dealer tomorrow. Strange I don't see any evidence of it having shipped since my car ended production on the 22nd...

Both my SA and BMW Canada say my car has shipped.... so certainly your car would have to.

Great news! Status 195 - departed port (information given by dealer) with ETA in Halifax on the 20th. Weird that this time around, BMW Canada didn't have the updated information...or rather did not want to give it to me. Any luck tracking the actual boat? Do you have a BOL number (bill of lading) or booking number? Because to me, it looks like we're on the same boat!

Vessel should be in Halifax by now...still showing as "out of range" however. I wonder if BMW/dealer would have any updates by now?

The ASIS system that the site uses is shore based - that is why there are no ship in the middle of the Atlantic. (There are thousands of ships in reality.
The Glorious Leader was delayed leaving. It will show up likely today. Don't worry it did not sink your car will be safely in Halifax in the next couple of days!

Oh I'm sure ahaha...I'm just getting more and more impatient the closer we get to delivery date. We're also getting to that "blind" period where no one has a clue when it'll get unloaded & how long it'll be sitting in Halifax until it gets loaded onto the CN train.

Strange...must be weather-related. I guess we're looking at mid-March delivery at the earliest now.

There is no way. The ship is not even showing up on ASIS costal so it will be end of day at best... Looking at shipping records that journey across the Atlantic takes the Glorious Leader 11 days from Southampton so it's last broadcast was off the cost of Spain on the 14th....so it could be day behind.

From your experience, how much longer do you think we'll have to wait? My SA has an ETA of March 8 but is unsure whether that's Toronto delivery or Oakville delivery (where my dealership is).

Not much of a difference if it’s Oakville or Toronto delivery.All of the cars are offloaded from the train unto transport trucks up at the CN rail yards in Conord,which is up by Canada’s Wonderland.If you don’t have any port installed options being installed on your car in Halifax,your car should arrive at your dealership by March 8.

The 8th might be possible...but unlikely. I can't imagine that they will be that efficient with transportation.

Just got a new ETA from my dealership - March 15. Again, not sure whether this is Toronto or Oakville delivery, but either way, it's only an extra day or so as another member had pointed out.
