I ordered my M3 on April 12th that was already in production; lucky me. The car was strapped down on the boat April 30th.
Timeline and dates:
Act. Production date: 4/19/05
Est. Departure date: 4/30/05
Actual: 4/30/05 ( In transit to final Vpc)
Est. Duration: 32 days

I was told that I will be, behind the wheel of my new Jet Black, Cinnamon interior M3 within 7 days after Port arrival. This is going to be a long month.... :thumbup:

Yeah, I know the feeling. My ship, the Grus, will be in Jacksonville, FL tomorrow having just finished a 9 day Altantic crossing. Next down to the Panama Canal, and then up to Port Hueneme, ETA 05/20.

I put a bunch of links on the Euro Delivery forum today to help with tracking.

Yep, same thing happened to mine, was suppose to leave Bremerhaven 04/21, ended up leaving 04/25... it's due into Jacksonville tomorrow, and picked up a day in the crossing, so is now due in Port Hueneme 05/20 instead of 05/17. Hang in, a few days doesn't matter that much! :mad: :p

'Bout an hour south of there -- east of Salem up in the mountains. Not too far up, though...we usually wear shoes.

We need someone to study this cinnamon phenomenon we got going on. :)
I'm bucking the trend and getting red. :eeps:

Salem huh? That's one thing good about Oregon, shoes are not required... Cinnamon? I just saw it with Black and feel in love...

EDIT: Wow....God I love the Internet!! THrough some searching I found out my car is on the Wallenius Wilhelm boat the Morning Noble!! Should hit Charleston on the 1st of June!!

GREAT NEWS. Ok, I'm being a bit selfish, but it's my turn... I called my dealer to check on the status of my car and to see if it arrived on time as they expected which was 5/31. I also heard that it could actually arrive on 6/2. So, I have been watching all the links and sites that show you the movement and status on the ships. Couldn't find anything these past few days. Well. the ship arrived at port in LA on 5/31 and the car arrived at my dealer this morning. They are going to clean it up and make it presentable and make me wait until tomorrow morning to pick it up. Those bastards, but it's only 23 hours and 3 minutes away. 23 hours and 2 minutes and 34 sec. 33 sec.

I've tried to find the link on the OC to track my car but I'm blind or it's not there for me - anyone give me a hint?

You could swing by the dealership just to take a quick peek & pre-delivery test-drive... :dunno: Of course you might be too busy to do that... :angel:

Trust me, I have already thought of that. I was thinking about showing up tonight at the dealership and camp out front over night and wait until they open. I don't want anyone robbing the place and taking my car. You can never trust those "Rent-a-Cops"...
