Anyone out there waiting for the boat to land in s.cal with their Bimmer on it? My CA said it was supposed to arrive on 10/14 if it is on time. I presume there are others out there anticipating. He did not give me the name of the boat but said there is only one main port (near Oxnard) where they come in for California and the mountain states.

So where is this port? I am in San Diego but I made the order only about 2 weeks ago so it will be quite some time before I get my car.

It's called Port Hueneme, close to Oxnard, north of LA, if that helps.

Yours must be on the Glorious Express. I can't believe your CA didn't/couldn't give the name of the ship.

Mine (M3 Conv) is on the Volans Leader as well. I have a thread on the ship here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=486802

FYI, my car is now at the preparation center according to BMWUSA. I am waiting to hear whether it will be on schedule or whether some of the "repairs" that others have discussed on the forum will delay it. Anyone else hear about whether their cars have arrived?

I'm waiting, but scheduled arrival is 10/27. Maybe early I see.

My 535ix, week 37 production, is at the dealers and I will pick it up early next week. It spent almost two weeks at the port in New Jersy. As far as I know from the dealer the hold was to insert a noise reduction bushing that had been left off at the factory.

Talked to my ca tonight, he said there aren't any issues that he has heard of from Jersey and that he expects the vehicle to be here within 5 days or so. Note, this is a 550xi, perhaps the delays are only on the 535 models?
