Glovis Cougar into Baltimor July 14 20:01 https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...714338/zoom:10
I called my BMW Genius to give me an update/let me know what ship my car is on but they never called me back (Grrrrr). I'm on day 15 of "in transit." I assume it's on one of those ships that will arrive on the 14th.

However, I hear it can still be up to two weeks before taking delivery after it arrives, though. MUST REMAIN PATIENT!

If you're in NC, I suspect your port of entry is Charleston. That would let you backtrack the ship name & schedule if you knew.

I found out I could have bought 14 days of sat tracking from FleetMon.com for $16, which would have been worth it a couple weeks ago, to give me something to watch. Too late now.

All the data suggests the ship is sitting off the coast. I suspect they are waiting for a mooring to open up before they steam up the bay.
we are back in range!

Yep, that lazy fat-ass Glovis Cougar is on the move again. Based on my eyeball estimates I don't see how it will make it to Baltimore on the 14th, but maybe it will pick up speed once it enters the Bay. I feel like we're looking more like a 15th arrival.

My work schedule gets busy starting on 7/22 so I hope the car gets to me before then. If not, I may not be able to pick it up until early August. I suspect my dealer wants to get this on the books for July so they might be ready to hustle, but it's really at the mercy of the VPC and shippers.

The other interesting tidbit I learned yesterday -- I'm now #1 on the list for a red Launch Edition Supra at my local dealer, due to the first 3-4 people dropping off the list because they found a color they wanted elsewhere. That becomes available 7/22. I may swing by and take a gander at that.

I've been curious about this scenario. I am also traveling a lot for work the rest of this month. Will BMW just hold onto your car till your ready to purchase? I'm also closing on a house this week so I wanted to make sure that was secured before taking delivery.

For those of you on Jinsei Maru, I made a little video of it passing through the Panama Canal.

Yeah, I'm sure they will hold it for you at the dealership without any problems.

After being in transit for 15 days, my status has now gone back to "at the port." Is this suggesting my car has reached the port in my country? Hmmm :

I just checked my status and it went back to “At Port” after the ship arriving in New Jersey. I guess I will be taking delivery soon.

My car finally changed to "in port" -- ship stopped at BMW's Dundalk port the day after landing on M-B's side of the water. Must depend on how the cars are loaded on the ship and the order they need to get off. My CA says they should have the car in a few days but I'd be surprised if they have it before the weekend.

Talked to my Sales Associate today. He said my car will be at the dealership on Saturday but it won't be ready for purchase. He stated the car comes in some sort of transport mode where it can't be driven over 10mph and most of the electronics are disconnected. Apparently, that is so no one can drive the car (is this true?).

He's going to let me know when it arrives so I can finally meet her (pics to follow).
